    Donna Shalala

    Donna Shalala

    Florida congresswoman Donna Shalala was one of many first-time candidates in 2018. But unlike other freshman Democrats that flipped a district, she’d already had a decades-long career in public life. At age 77, she became the second-oldest person ever to win a seat in Congress.

    Besides serving as an early Peace Corps volunteer and co-founding EMILY’s List, Shalala was also the longest-serving Secretary of Health & Human Services in U.S. history. She discusses what the federal government should be doing, working in Congress with John Lewis, and naming her new rescue dog “Fauci.”

Generally enjoyable.

One of my more consistent listens, but have to say that the conversion to The Ticket which no longer features the fantastic theme/reworking by Jon Batiste is disappointing. The switch to a canned version removes that unique character of the show. It is still a perfectly listenable political pundit-focused podcast, but it lost it’s singular character for me. I’ll still listen, but every time will yearn to hear Batiste’s version.

The Atlantic is one of the best publications out there.

Their podcast episodes are excellent and their website has some of the most comprehensive elucidations you’re going to see on many important topics. Def was worth subscribing to help support excellent journalism.

The haters have to hate. trump’s cult loves to repeat his myriad lies and projections as they’re brainwashed and manipulated by state TV and propagandizing sources like Breitbart, RT, Oan and FOX amongst others. They are largely opinion sources now by agitators, shock jocks and propagandists propped up by the ultra donor wealthy class to keep us all fighting while they decimate our wealth in the middle and lower classes. This is age old news of four decades now yet trump and the GOP still manage to convince the “poorly educated,” the uninformed, the non critical thinkers and the bigots that they have their backs. They get screwed too but don’t see it due to the above. Sad we are where we are with so much disinformation out there; mostly coming from the now radical, Fascist right. No thanks. Vote Democratic and save our constitutional republic and democracy.

The boring but very nasty magazine, The Atlantic, is rapidly failing, going down the tubes, & has just been forced to announce it is laying off at least 20% of its staff in order to limp into the future. This is a tough time to be in the Fake News Business & this is a fake podcast!
