11-14-22 Nicole Sandler Show – Marcy Monday Another Emptywheel Update

  Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I've been consumed by the midterm elections for the past few weeks. Now that it's (almost) all over, it's time to figure out what's been happening with the numerous investigations into the former guy and his sycophantic insurrectionist followers.

She answers my questions [...]

And the other side is delusional, claiming that January 6, 2021 was just another day. We'll continue reviewing some of yesterday's madness on today's show, and then welcome Jeff Sharlet back to the show.
