October 29 Show: Comey Drops a Bomb; Campus Speech Wars; Rick Perlstein on the GOP After Trump

October 30, 2016 @ 12:20 pm

This week, we speak with Ian Millhiser, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and legal analyst for Think Progress, about FBI Director James Comey's oddly vague letter to Congress regarding emails reportedly found on a computer shared by Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.


Then we're joined by journalist E.J. Graff, a senior fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism and managing editor of the WaPo's Monkey Cage blog, to talk about what she discovered when she drilled down past the headlines of some high-profile campus controversies for a recent report released by Pen America. Graff's observations may surprise you.


Finally, we'll speak to historian and author Rick Perlstein about the future of the GOP after the rise of Trumpism, and the potential for Election Day violence.

October 22, 2016: A Debate With Kshama Sawant: Is a Vote for Jill Stein Wasted?; HRC v Trump One Last Time

October 23, 2016 @ 10:26 am

This week, we start off with a debate between Joshua Holland and Seattle City Councillor Kshama Sawant about whether a vote for Jill Stein is an investment in breaking the two-party system in the future (Sawant) or a waste of time for ad ineffective and self-marginalizing third party (Holland). The debate was produced by KUOW public radio in Seattle, which was kind enough to offer us permission to include it in this week's show.


Central to Sawant's argument is that efforts to push Dems to the left have been fruitless. So our second guest gives this week's show a theme of sorts. 


We're joined by Kaitlin Sweeney, press secretary for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a group that's dedicated to promoting the idea of the Warren/Sanders wing of the Democratic Party. And Sweeney gives us a recap of the third and final presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Then we'll switch gears and talk about pit bulls, and the mythology that's developed around these dogs -- one that makes them the most frequently abused and abandoned breeds -- with Bronwen Dickey, author of Pit Bull: The Battle Over an American Icon.
