Download here or click below to play Welcome to another Wednesday at home. Trump is now admitting the virus is serious, but is it too little too late? We'll have the latest news and information, and a bit of homemade humor as well. And then, we welcome journalist Ross Barkan to the show, who has an article up at The Nation, "Cuomo Helped Get New York Into This Mess," that tells the real backstory of Andrew Cuomo, and how his austerity policies helped lead to the disaster currently unfolding in New York. I played a couple of song [...]
Please don't read yesterday's post, because boy did I get it wrong. I never make predictions, but made an exception as I was blasting through posting the podcast, and I just had an epiphany that it was gonna be a blowout. When I'm wrong, I'm really wrong!! I'm still stunned, shocked, numb and my brain hurts because I can't understand how this nation could elect him. Then again, FloriDUH elected a criminal as governor, so I don't know why I'm surprised. Anyway, today I opened the phones to let you vent. We'll have to do that more often. Tomorrow, [...]
Another snark-filled guest post by the one, the only Will Durst: TOP 11 REASONS BEING POTUS IS SO DARN COOL As it appears we’re smack dab in the middle of the 2016 presidential campaign announcement season, this might be the perfect time to ask the question on every American’s lips: what kind of twisted psychopath chooses to do this? Who are these people that are so all fired up to enter this soul- sucking fray just to sit in an Office that is Oval? Masochists? Sadists? Sadomasochists? Masosadochists? Folks who didn’t pay attention during any previous election? As we ravenous hounds [...]

Today, Nicole talks about the bullshit being piled on us, figuratively and literally, daily. Tom Butler joins in to talk about a new book on Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot. Joel Silberman dissects the message being perpetrated by "House of Cards" and Third Way. And we go back to the FloriDUH files too.
Randi Rhodes broadcast her final program on Friday. I'm hoping she'll come back - but, for now, she's done. I was honored to be in the studio on her last day. Not that I was invited, mind you. I just showed up. As I told her, I just couldn't imagine sitting at home listening. So, I got her a balloon and a card and a bottle of champagne... and it was the definition of bittersweet. But move forward we must... so, on the show today, we looked to the future. Congressman Alan Grayson was on with me in the first [...]
