We welcome Heather "Digby" Parton (of Digby's Hullabaloo and Salon.com) back to the show to commiserate on all that's happened so far in this new decade, and to preview what's coming up-- like a Senate impeachment trial starting next week. One last note... Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to the Democratic caucus, explaining that she'll likely send the articles of impeachment over to the senate next week. Read the letter here.
The third of the Democratic party's primary debates is in the history books. Today, Digby joins me to talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of it... But this is only part one of today's show, posted above. I'm also guest hosting The BradCast today for Brad Friedman, who's dealing with a family medical emergency.

It's a busy finish to a very busy week. Today, we have two great guests joining in to help Nicole recap the week.

It's the end of another week in Trump's America, and the world is suffering because of it. Obviously, I'm in another bit of a mood today. Thankfully, Heather "Digby" Parton is here today to help try to make sense of the utterly sense-less. We'll also speak with Code Pink director and co-founder Jodie Evans, who's been at the Venezuelan embassy in Washington DC where a standoff is happening between the pro-Guaido forces and the people who believe the Venezuelans should control their own destiny. What we understand is that it's not that simple. We'll try to get to the bottom [...]

Trump is melting down! Apparently the big GOP losses in last week's midterms, his much-criticized trip to Paris, and the Wall Street Journal expose about his hush money payoffs have all gotten to him. Heather "Digby" Parton wrote about it for Salon, and joins us today to talk about it, how the Blue America-endorsed candidates did last week, and more... To start the show today, I played an amazing parody of "Bohemian Rhapsody". Enjoy!
Whenever the news is on overdrive at it appears to be right now, there's no one I'd rather speak with than Heather "Digby" Parton. She's one of my favorite writers -- both at her Hullaballoo blog and at Salon.com. Today, Digby returns to talk about Brett Kavanaugh and the circus surrounding his probable confirmation to the Supreme Court and the new bombshell report from the NY Times about Trump's tax cheating ways that led to his fortune.
