Another day on the road means another all-new, pre-recorded show, designed to fill in some blanks at the end of another crazy week. We double back on that complicated Rule 6(e) question, not just to split more hairs, but to check in on how the other guys will be splitting them. We note that House committees are already having their subpoenas rebuffed. And this time, we actually remembered to let you know about that stunt the NRCC was up to, but which we forgot to get to on Thursday.
Wind up the week with all that, plus a curve ball story or two you can casually drop into conversation to wow your friends, or make them jump out a window.
Listen right here at 9:00 AM ET!
PODCAST LISTENERS: There’s a new podcast platform in town, and the big news is: this one pays! RadioPublic pays podcast producers at $20 CPM for listens on their native app (available for iPhones & Androids), financed by pre- and post-roll ads they insert. Not a bad way to support the show, with somebody else’s money!
So if you’re a podcast listener, please consider downloading the RadioPublic app on your Android or iOS phone. Yes, you can still download directly from their site, or listen to the player embedded here at Daily Kos. But it’s listens in their app that count toward payment. And get this: listen to just three episodes in their app, and we earn a one-time, $1 “loyal listener” bonus.
Nothing changes on our end. It’s still Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, and even Armando. Plus also, me. And you! As always, we still want your voice on the air with us. Sit down with your smart phone or other electronic recording device and send us your stories and commentary to share with the audience. There’s no easier way to try your hand at podcasting, without all the hassle!
Of course there’s no substitute for having your support via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash. (And hey, if you want a cool trick for donating sorta-kinda cost free, get their cash.me app and use this share code to get $5 in your account (plus $5 in mine) when you send your first $5 (to anyone)!
For now, how about one on the house? Here’s what we did last time out, on our previous LIVE show:x some science stuff . Closer to home, but still kind of far away, Greg Dworkin examines potential political collapses in Israel and the UK. No closer to home at all, and in fact, in exactly the same place, Julian Assange is arrested, and Armando joins us in not knowing, initially, exactly how to feel about it, until things clear up, somewhat. Then, right here at home, we all bemoan William Barr’s shallow and craven predictability, and wonder how our various national big brains could ever possibly have missed the clues. Later, it’s time to wonder the same with regard to the Republican Senate and the filibuster. We didn’t neglect electoral politics entirely, though. Poll cravers got their fix. In other corruption news, Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, retired from her senior, inactive status on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, thereby mooting a court inquiry into… those taxes Trump keeps refusing to give up. But also reaffirming that there’s there there. Oh, and did we mention that the Russians tried to hack election systems in every single state? Yes we did, but only just.Need more info on how to listen? Find it below the fold.
