Welcome to Friday. Thank goodness this week is just about over. We'll bring you the latest in the insane news cycle... and visit with two great guests. Columnist Will Bunch was a big Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016, but is urging him not to run in 2020. We find out why in this column from 1/10. You should also check out his newest column on the LA Teachers' strike. Our second guest today is Kelly Carlin. In addition to being George's daughter, Kelly is (as she describes herself) is a thinker, writer, talker and doodler. She’s funny, serious, [...]
2019 is here!. We hit the ground running for the new year as well with a very busy first show. First up, journalist David Dayen whose latest for The Intercept details one of the first big policy votes for the Democrats in the 116th Congress as Nancy Pelosi tries to bring back a PayGo rule. Then we move on to journalist David Sirota who, a couple of weeks ago, published an article exploring Beto O'Rourke's voting record in his three terms in Congress. As no good reporting goes unpunished these days, he's been accused of waging war against Beto on [...]

The Nation's John Nichols joins Nicole Sandler at the top of the show to talk about the blatant GOP power grab going on in WI, MI, OH & NC.

Today we delved into the madness surrounding North Korea and its nuclear weapons program, and D'ump's reaction to it. I read a piece from The Nation that informed me that the president can unilaterally launch a nuclear bomb without approval of Congress or anyone else. Please read it and share widely! David Atkins, contributor to Washington Monthly, joined me to discuss one of his columns: "Bernie, Kamala, and the Left's War of Mutually Assured Destruction" which highlights the latest divide among the political left and which must be fixed if we're to get ourselves out of this Trump dump.
Mitch McConnell will release the new senate wealthcare bill tomorrow, with the CBO score expected Monday. They plan to bring it for a vote sometime next week. This is real - the danger of upwards of 23 million of us losing our healthcare is a distinct possibility. Today, Senator Bernie Sanders joined me for a few minutes to talk about what's at stake, and to urge everyone to call and email your senators and urge them to do the right thing-- fix the Affordable Care Act, and give us a public option so we can buy into Medicare. I've been [...]
