As my regular listeners know, I try to find something funny to share each show as laughter is good for us, especially along with all the serious shit we deal with each day. Today, I stumbled upon something that’s obviously been a thing for a few weeks now. I’m slow sometimes. But a cottage industry has grown around Elizabeth from Knoxville Tennessee who “got maced” when she stormed the Capitol with the other insurrectionists who descended on DC three weeks ago today. So I shared with you a few of the “I Got Maced” original compositions that have sprung up recently, and topped it off with a song about the teary woman from That Guitar Man from Central Park. (I’ll post some of these at the bottom of this post).

After the fun, we move on to the serious stuff… Yesterday, President Biden spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time as POTUS. We actually got a readout of the call telling us all the issues Biden confronted him on (for which Trump gave him a pass). It’s just coincidence, I’m sure, that Craig Unger‘s new book, American Kompromat: How the KGB Cultivated Donald Trump, and Related Tales of Sex, Greed, Power and Treachery was released. Regardless, Craig Unger joins us today to explain how Trump actually was a Russian asset, and has been for decades!

Here’s the original “I Got Maced” clip, followed by a few of my favorite re-mixes. At the end, you’ll find That Guitar Man from Central Park’s bit of brilliance…
