Episode #792: #DeleteFacebook
First Broadcast: 3/26/18
Will Trump meet with Kim Jong Un? Trump fired Rex Tillerson! Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe! Reasons to delete Facebook! Cambridge Analytica! A bomber in Austin! The March For Our Lives! I can't keep up with this backlog of news! Does the fun ever stop??
Episode #793: I Can't Tell
First Broadcast: 4/9/18
Trump's White House says that U.S. military involvement in Syria will soon end, but are those troops just going to be shifted to the Mexican border? Has the U.S. learned any lessons about putting short-term gain above long-term consequences? Will the success of the Roseanne reboot mask the fact that racial resentment was a better indicator of who would vote for Trump than the often-referenced "economic anxiety"? Too many questions for 28 minutes!
Episode #794: Smash and Grab
First Broadcast: 4/23/18
Did President Trump bomb Syria just so that he wouldn't look like he was lying with his tweets? Will New York State's Attorney General prod the state government to pass an amendment to make sure anyone pardoned by Trump doesn't get away with violating state law? Will New York City pass a "vacancy tax" that will result in a reduction of vacant storefronts throughout the five boroughs? Will Cynthia Nixon prevail in her primary challenge to Governor Andrew Cuomo? What did Mike Pompeo talk about with Kim Jon Un? Will the Senate really confirm a torture enabler to run the C.I.A.? Can't I just have one week where there isn't so much news, for once?
