Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and many of us will be sharing the dinner table with family and others with whom we many not see eye to eye politically. Dave Johnson joins me with some tips on navigating the holidays with the family. We'll also discuss the great political divide, not only between left and right, but between progressives and ConservaDems, and more. But first, the latest news... and a conversation with my friend Michele Clark who just happens to be in Malta where there are mass protests calling for the Prime Minister's ouster over the murder of a journalist. She shot [...]
Today was the second day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump. Today, it was former Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie "Masha" Yovanovich, and the testimony was quite riveting. So much so that Trump, himself, tweeted such ugliness at her that even Bret Baier of Fox so-called-News said it was witness intimidation, "adding essentially an article of impeachment in real time as this hearing is going on."

This is one of those weeks where it feels like the WH resident is spinning out of control, and I have to wonder why the idea of the 25th amendment isn't being seriously considered. With so many possible topics of discussion, we welcome Dave Johnson back to the show for a discussion of the insanity of our lives.
It's been another week that feels like a year in D'ump's America. Nicole Sandler has a few choice words about Think Progress and their latest attack on Bernie Sanders (both the article and the attached video that they produced!). We welcomed Dave Johnson back to the show to talk about our new, sad reality, and what we can do to change it.
Donald Trump today declared a national emergency in order to spend money that Congress denied him for a ridiculous border wall. He then went on to admit he didn't have to do this, but wanted to do it fast. Oy. Dave Johnson joins in to discuss today's Rose Garden spectacle, as well and brainstorm on what the Democrats need to do once they win back the Senate and the White House.
It's been a year, that's for sure. We're glad it's ending. Nicole Sandler welcomes her friend Dave Johnson back to the show for a conversation about the year gone by and why we're already stressed about 2019...
Nicole Sandler and Dave Johnson recap the 2018 midterm elections. Sadly, Beto O'Rourke didn't win. But, as his concession speech shows, he's the real deal. I'm sure we'll see him again, hopefully soon!
After an update on the news of the day, Nicole Sandler welcomes Dave Johnson back to the show to discuss the news of the past week, including Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, Nikki Haley's resignation, the big climate change report and Trump's non-action, and more...

Nicole Sandler recaps the massive news that unfolded over the last 24 hours with a live version of "What's News." Dave Johnson joins in to tell us about Elizabeth Warren's new anti-corruption bill that has been overshadowed by the breaking news of Trump world corruption.
After being out sick for a week, Nicole Sandler returns to a world even more insane. From the G7 (G6?) to North Korea to the horrific and immoral practice of tearing kids out their parents' arms, Nicole and Dave Johnson attempt to make sense of the senseless. David Daley, author of Ratfucked: Why Your Vote Doesn't Count also weighs in on yesterday's non decision by the Supreme Court on gerrymandering.
