Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We made it to the end of another fucked up week. As bad as last week was, this one was possibly worse. No end in sight to the break within the Democratic Party. As Bernie Sanders summed it up so well, two senators have the right to disagree with the other 48 in the caucus. They have the right to some compromise, but they don't have the right to derail the agenda favored by the other 48 members along with the vast majority [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) We've been on a roll lately, discussing some important issues facing us that the Democrats must fix before we lose what's left of this democracy. From Biden's Executive Order issued Friday on antitrust and monopoly to his powerful speech on Tuesday about the GOP attacks on our voting rights. There's also the matter of withdrawing the rest of the troops from Afghanistan, and even the billionaires' space race (about which I've not yet commented). Who would I like to talk with about [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Digby is my guest today. She wrote a great post (up at both digbysblog.net and Salon.com) about Joe Biden announcing we'll have our troops out of Afghanistan by 9/11, the 20th anniversary of that attack. I began the show talking about a few recent incidents of blatant racism, one of them featured a drill sergeant from Fort Jackson in South Carolina, attacking a young black man for simply walking down the sidewalk. It's showtime! Click to watch/listen and find out why [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) Heather "Digby" Parton is always one of my favorite guests. But I always lament that we ran out of time at the end of the hour. Well, today, for logistical purposes, we had to tape the conversation, and boy did we talk. We discussed the sad reality of where this nation is today, politically, and it's frightening. So venture down the rabbit hole with us today, and see how weird it gets! https://youtu.be/aVkpSmor9gA

Download here or click below to play It's Election Day Eve, and everything is on the line. More than 96 million Americans have already voted; that's over 2/3 of the 2016 total number of votes cast in total. Today, I'll call on two guests to help me sum up what's at stake: Congressman Eric Swalwell of California, and Heather "Digby" Parton of Salon.com and Digby's Hullabaloo. Today's funny was a brilliant parody of Hamilton's "My Shot" by a really talented young man name Zach Timson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ5TDQn_7kY And the YouTube version of today's show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF6-hwV8dn8 [...]
Download here or click below to play Thank Dog it's Friday! This has been a long, frustrating week in the middle of a long frustrating year that feels like 10. Trump is more off the hook than ever, and his insanity is escalating. Joe Biden held a great press conference today, showing a real difference between our two choices in November. And Heather "Digby" Parton joins in to attempt to make sense of the senseless. Be sure to read Digby's blog and her column at Salon. Today's funny was a Johnny Cash parody. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VZ6U4hMgck
Download here or click below to play It's July 1. We've officially made it through the first half of 2020, which is quite possibly the worst year ever! The always insightful Heather "Digby" Parton joins us today. She weighs in on what's already transpired, and to commiserate on how we'll make it through the next six months! Today's funny comes from a very talented Canadian who made Donald Trump apologize for all he's done over the past four years:
Download here or click below to play Our calls to Denmark and Italy to check in on people socially distancing around the globe went so well last week, so we're at it again today, this time reaching out to New South Wales, Australia, to see how they're faring. As usual, I'll have the latest news, and some creative comedy. And then we'll end the week checking in with Heather "Digby" Parton, who's sheltering at home in California... And I promised I'd post the full Samantha Bee segment with Katie Porter. Here you go. Enjoy!
Just click to play: or download here The first full week of 2020 is in the history books, and it was a doozy. 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.
