Episode 288: Biden’s First 100 Days
In this episode we’ll review Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office; we’ll look at the good, the bad, the complicated as well as the downright ugly. Additionally, just one week after all American adults became eligible for the COVID vaccine, anti-vax, science denying, rich idiots kicked their effort to make the pandemic last forever into overdrive. We’ll discuss Joe Rogan, Tucker Carlson, and Bill Gates’ contribution to that effort, specifically.
Episode 287: Social Injustice Warriors
In this episode we’ll discuss the conviction of Derek Chauvin and the subsequent reactions from reactionaries visibly upset he wasn’t able to get away with murder. We’ll also talk about the Republican Party’s nationwide assault on protests as well as Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s ongoing fight against worker rights.
Episode 286: Bad Mother Tucker
In this episode we’ll explore the twisted mindset of multi-millionaire Fox New propagandist Tucker Carlson, including his mask off “great replacement” rant intended to normalize white supremacy as well as his COVID vaccine misinformation that’s bringing harmful conspiracies to mainstream audiences. This week has proven that he’s one of—if not THE—most dangerous propagandists in America. Boycott Fox News. Boycott Tucker Carlson.
Episode 285: FloodGaetz Opening
In this episode we’ll continue our coverage of the Matt Gaetz scandal, discuss Prager U’s effort to brainwash children, Arkansas’ anti-trans bill, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s donations to corporate Democrats, Abby Martin’s free speech lawsuit, Mitch McConnell’s stunning hypocrisy, and much more!
Episode 284: Protect Trans Youth
In this episode we’ll cover a number of issues, but we’ll first examine the wave of bills popping up across the country that aim to criminalize healthcare provided to transgender and non-binary youth. Gender-affirming care is medically necessary and life-saving, yet Republicans are trying to criminalize the existence of young trans people under the guise of “protecting” them. We’ll talk about that along with the country’s ongoing stupidity with regard to COVID-19, the conservative hysteria over Lil Nas X’s new music video and shoes, and Georgia’s new Jim Crow law. Finally, we’ll close the show by talking to Real Progressives’ Steve Grumbine about the fundamentals of modern monetary theory.
Episode 283: Rich People Look Tastier Than Ever
Eat the rich? Absolutely. American oligarchs such as Elon Musk and Kylie Jenner are going out of their way to demonstrate why the wealth they possess must be confiscated. We’ll also talk about Fox News’ anti-trans propaganda campaign and much more!
By far, one of the easiest political commentary podcast to digest. I truly appreciate the straightforward approach and tone; this is fair and balanced executed perfectly. It’s easy to follow, understand, and breaks down a lot of the nonsense of this current political climate we’re in. As a Black queer woman, it is refreshing to listen to someone speak so logically on everything happening. Thank you. Please keep up the great work.
Listened to the pod for a while and think it’s great. Good insight into all the important topics of today with a solid progressive perspective. Genuine person, which is appreciated as well.
