    SUPD 36 Dr Jason Johnson and my Dad is back

    SUPD 36 Dr Jason Johnson and my Dad is back

    Today's question is
    What is the state of play in American politics ?
    I haven't been talking that much general politics on the podcast because there is so much great analysis out there but I do love to follow it and of course I think it's very important. There are certain analysts and political scientists whose takes I like to get and Dr Jason Johnson is one of my favorites. We had a great chat and I look forward to having him on more. 
    Jason is the politics editor at TheRoot.com  and MSNBC Contributor and Politics / Journalism Professor @morganstateu
     He can be found on Twitter @DrJasonJohnson.
    After my conversation with Jason I get a much different and less professional take on Trump, Obama and the current race for the democratic nomination from my Dad. We had a really great talk and I love getting and sharing his perspective on things.

    SUPD 35 Comedian Chloe Hilliard

    SUPD 35 Comedian Chloe Hilliard

    Do you know what #BlackGirlMagic is? That is the question I opened my conversation with Chloe Hilliard with. 
    I worked with Chloe at Gotham Comedy Club last weekend and she was amazing. I was really impressed with her performances and I was psyched to get her on the show. We had a great conversation about race, socio economics and body image. Def get her new book
    From her new book F*ck Your Diet: And Other Things My Thighs Tell Me
    By the time Chloé Hilliard was 12, she wore a size 12—both shoe and dress—and stood over six feet tall. Fitting in was never an option. That didn’t stop her from trying. Cursed with a “slow metabolism,” “baby weight,” and “big bones,”—the fat trilogy—Chloe turned to fad diets, starvation, pills, and workouts, all of which failed.

    Realizing that everything—from government policies to corporate capitalism—directly impacts our relationship with food and our waistlines, Chloé changed her outlook on herself and hopes others will do the same for themselves.

    The perfect mix of cultural commentary, conspiracies, and confessions, F*ck Your Diet pokes fun at the all too familiar, misguided quest for better health, permanent weight loss, and a sense of self-worth.

    SUPD 34 Evelyn Farkas

    SUPD 34 Evelyn Farkas

    Hey Awesome Person
    Today's question is the same as the last episode. 
    Have you ever thought about running for Congress?  My guest is Evelyn Farkas and she is running.
    The daughter of refugees who fled communist Hungary, Evelyn Farkas grew up in Chappaqua. She has dedicated her life to public service — strengthening America’s national security and defending democracy.
    For nearly three decades, Evelyn has represented our country defending democracy, advancing human rights, fighting terrorism, and working towards nuclear non-proliferation. She has been a foreign policy leader in the Defense Department, Senate Armed Services Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and U.S. Marine Corps University’s Command and Staff College. She ran a congressional commission focused on keeping weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of terrorists. She worked in Bosnia just after their bloody war and has advised former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her time as a U.S. Senator.
    As Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Obama, Evelyn was responsible for U.S. policy toward Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia. After the 2016 election, she stood up to conservative media to publicly denounce President Trump’s corrupt ties to Russia.
    I really liked talking with her and I think you will like listening to this conversation.

    SUPD 33 Mondaire Jones for Congress and a chat with my wife

    SUPD 33 Mondaire Jones for Congress and a chat with my wife

    Hey Y'all 
    I spent 2 weeks thinking about running for congress. Then I read about Mondaire Jones and decided he was better than me. Now there are at least 10 people running for this seat here in NY-17 and I won't be one of them. They are all very relieved. 
    Mondaire came by my house and we had a great talk.  It starts at 10 mins in when I'm done setting it up. I really like him and on wednesday you can hear my interview with another candidate running against him, Evelyn Farkas. 
    After my talk with Mondaire at 50:45 I had my wife Valerie Vendrame join me in the solar powered home studio and we talked about why I didn't run and how to cope with life in "the suck" 
    Check her out on the internet

Important stuff

PD is finding his groove more and more with each episode. He is very genuine, and it comes through in the self-produced aspect of this podcast. Loved him on S/XM (how stupid are they for canning him?) so I’m thrilled to find him resurface here. The interviews and stories are not headliners, yet PD honors them with a sort of positive, personal respect.
