Today's scheduled third day of hearings from the House Select Committee investigating the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol was postponed, giving us a bit of a breather. But not really, when you consider all that's happened today. The Supreme Court handed down decisions in six more of their still undecided cases for this term, though none of them were the blockbuster cases some had expected. That leaves 18 more decisions to come in the next few weeks. The Fed made good on [...]

We've now passed the one-year mark of the post-Trump presidency, but like other former presidents, that one won't go away. I realized last week that I had entirely forgotten about the annual Progressive Honor Roll, as designated by John Nichols and his colleagues at The Nation magazine. I think I've had John on as a guest every year for the past decade reviewing the progressive heroes of the previous year. So, I reached out to invite him on, belatedly. And learned that [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) The chaotic end to our longest war ever. Hurricane Ida makes landfall in New Orleans on the 16th anniversary of Katrina, devastating the region again. The Supreme Court all but overturns Roe v Wade on its shadow docket in the dead of night. Ida remnants wreak havoc on the northeast, killing at least 45 people in six states, crippling NYC and the surrounding areas. This was an epically awful week. The cynic in me wants to crawl under a rock. My hopefully [...]

Every year, The Nation publishes their Progressive Honor Roll and John Nichols joins me to discuss who made the list. He'll be with us today to go over 2020's MVPs, and to talk a bit about the unprecedented circumstances we find ourselves in today. As usual, we started with the latest news, a few mini rants from me. One was about Katie Porter being taken OFF the House Financial Services Committee (WTF [...]

I'll have the latest on Trump's attempts to subvert the will of the people in Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. John Nichols, National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation, joins us from Wisconsin, where the orange one has demanded another recount that won't change anything. In the second part of the show, I'm joined by "Boca" Britany Somers. This week has been Transgender Awareness Week, and today is Transgender Remembrance [...]

It's a fight we must wage and progressive must win, but it comes as the country is fighting for our future. The events of the past week make me wonder if we have a future at all... today's conversation with John Nichols will be a good one (as they always are). He joins in at the bottom of the hour. [...]

What a week! The second of the Democratic 2020 primary debates is/are history. Congress is on recess until September. And a majority of the House Democratic Caucus now supports impeachment. We'll go through all of it and more, and chat with John Nichols of The Nation about where we go next.
2019 is here, and so is the 116th Congress! The Democrats are back in control of the House, and we can allow ourselves a bit of hope again. With a narcissistic madman in the oval office, it's easy to get discouraged. That's why every year, we invite John Nichols on the show to salute The Nation's 2018 Progressive Honor Roll. Today, a look at the best of 2018, and a preview of what's to come in this new year.
