Best-selling sports author and noted Trump antagonist, Molly Knight, gives listeners a humorous, informative, and cathartic space to deal with all the ways in which Donald Trump is wreaking havoc on their lives. It will feature guests ranging from celebrities, to physicians, to professional athletes, to Molly’s next door neighbors.
Molly promises to provide a platform for rational human beings to laugh until they cry, and cry until they laugh, until Trump and Pence are out of the White House. Each episode will do a quick review of the terrible things the president did in the previous seven days, and focus on a specific topic personal to the guest. Such topics will include what it's like to be gay in the age of Trump, what it's like to be a parent in the age of Trump, what it's like to be a pro athlete in the age of Trump, and how to handle insomnia, depression, anxiety, and sudden nihilistic urges.
There are many political podcasts that review the news and talk to policy wonks. This podcast will delve into how this administration is affecting our everyday lives in ways we might not yet understand, and serve as a place to primal scream as we re-build the strength necessary to take our country back from the lunatic in charge.

How did this stop!?
This show should've kept going, too bad that it appears to have stopped. I highly recommend it.
Can’t wait for the next!
I’m really enjoying these. Blasting them through my house while I renovate.
An Excellent Podcast
I wholeheartedly recommend this podcast. Molly Knight is a clear thinker and effective communicator, as evidenced by her bestseeler "The Best Team Money Can Buy" about the LA Dodgers front office. Molly is a serious patriot--probably what we used to call an "Eisnhower Republican" in saner times. She understands the blight we're currently living under, and the long term consequences every single day of Trumpism doom us to. She focuses on intelligent guests who discuss the most effective ways of mitigating the looming disasters by positive actions today. Very impressed!
