episode 222: Ep. 222: The Stench (w/ Justice Sonia Sotomayor, et al.)

Today was a chillingly, historically, bad day for women's rights in the United States of America. The right-wing, reactionary Supreme Court heard stunning oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case intended deal a death blow to Roe v. Wade and make abortion in America essentially illegal. But in listening to the arguments and to the mind-altering questions of the six conservative justices, you can hear far more than the death knell of Roe...

episode 217: Ep. 217: How “Moderates” Are Killing America (w/ David Sirota)

After the promise of major legislation that would rival the impact of FDR’s New Deal, Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda has been sucked dry by corporate America and their pawns in the Senate.

episode 214: Ep. 214: Why Buffalo Matters. Why India Walton Matters. Why Democratic Socialism Matters. (w/ India Walton)

India Walton shocked the political world and upset the establishment by running against and defeating a four-term incumbent Democratic Mayor of Buffalo this past June in the Democratic primary.

episode 213: Ep. 213: EMERGENCY PODCAST SYSTEM — Rep. Ilhan Omar

Congress could be on the verge of passing a historic investment in America's human and physical infrastructure not seen since the 1930's.

Yet two Democratic Senators -- Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona -- stand in the way of getting it done. Michael Moore is joined by Rep...
