Author, screenwriter, artist, speaker Frank Schaeffer returns to the show to talk about his background in Fundamentalist religion and why he believes it's the enemy of peace, and its role in electing Trump.
GottaLaff joins me each Tuesday to shoot the shit about the news, and this week there's a lot of shit...
Two big news stories broke during today's show: Trump Told Russians That Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation Russia probe reaches current White House official, people familiar with the case say Today on the show, we had a few health checks... first, your computer. As the WannaCry ransomware attack hit organizations all over the world this week, I called on Ralph Echemendia, "the ethical hacker" to give us a primer on what it's all about and how to protect ourselves. And Wendell Potter, health insurance whistle blower, joined in to tell us about his new venture, Tarbell.org, a [...]
We started the show recapping the insane news from the past 2 weeks... then it was time for Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny & the Blue America PAC about politics and the race toward 2018.
The news hits just keep on coming and the proverbial "other shoe" keeps dropping. Today, I try to cover as many bases as I can in an hour with today's guests: BuzzFeed News' Jason Leopold and Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch
It's Tuesday, so @GottaLaff is Nicole's co-host for the day in which they marvel at the latest idiocy of D'ump - which this time finds him leaking classified intel to the Russians.
It's a good thing it's Friday, as I don't think we could take another day of this week. Today, the resident tweeted a threat at Comey, that also insinuated that he secretly tapes visitors to the White House!

The president is caught in his own lies was caught in his own lies in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, in which he said he knew he was going to fire Comey before ever getting the memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein! Then he said that Comey asked him to dinner to ask if he could keep his job. Seriously. It's a 10-year term. According to D'ump, after Comey asked if he could keep his job, D'ump asked if he's under investigation. No coercion there... It's Thursday, so Howie Klein was on. We talked about how this whole shit storm [...]
Yesterday, Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey. I can't say I'm sorry to see Comey go, but there's a time and place for everything, and this wasn't it! The question now is how the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election will continue with a Trump-appointed FBI chief and Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Autocracy, here we come. Today on the show, I brought us up to date on where we are will all of that, and even took a few calls before moving on to our media problem. As the name of the post implies, "the [...]
