Is that too much to ask? The divide between white progressives and the old, black guard is growing; and young progressives of color are stuck in the middle! Plus, Farah or Monique? Brooklyn’s 45th District picks a new Council Member. Caban fights the Queens establishment… and her campaign. White Plains, what's good? Dems make Kat Brezler jump through hoops. Apparently, Rev. Diaz ain’t no “rat” or whatever. And Barron battles billionaires to end the all-powerful SHSAT.

"The more, the merrier"

Depends. Even with all the super qualified women in the race, the media is still totally obsessed with the white dudes—groundbreaking. Plus, it’s official, HE’S IN! Meanwhile, America braces itself for a shoulder rub. For the record, we asked Obama not to endorse this podcast. Cuomo has 35 questions. We have just one: Why? Elizabeth Warren drowns us in minutia and solves the student debt crisis, while she’s at it. Ain’t sh*t changed. Black folks ain’t feelin’ Mayor Pete—time for a trip to...

Uh... yea, you are! The Mueller Report is here and it's BONKERS—even with all the redactions! So will Democrats finally impeach the motherf*cker? Plus, Byford might be going bye-bye. After congestion pricing, NJ is big mad, and they want NY to sleep with the fishes or whatever. Bernie, you in trouble, bro! And more "crazy sh*t" from Mueller's 448-page Trump novela.

"Elitist bulletin board"

4/16/2019
More
Cuomo pops our Twitter bubble. #Sad! But don’t fret, House Party is getting mad hits, so nevertheless, the echo chamber persists—we worked REALLY hard, of which you were a big part of also. Plus, battle lines are drawn on every level. Crowley had dirt on AOC. Maloney faces the MOMO challenge. BdB, just announce already! Are progressives the new Tea Party? DeRosa thinks so! And can't we all just get along... on social media? Ask the Senate Dems.

"0.1%"

More
Yep! That's the total number of openly LGBTQ elected officials in our country. After Lori Lightfoot's historic win, we wonder if the #RainbowWave will hit New York. Plus, 2020 candidates kiss Sharpton's ring at NAN. Progressives ain't feelin' the budget. Who will Corey Johnson strip next? Cy Vance is living his best life! And call it Gracie MANsion, 'cause the 2021 mayoral race is shaping up to be a total—y'all get it, right?

“MeToo Joe”

More
Batsh*t Bernie…Nerdy Pete…Pochantas… Whatever Trump calls 'em, in about a year, NY takes center stage in the 2020 primary. Are we ready to win or ready for 2016 2.0? Plus, Jose Serrano retires. Is AOC MIA? Queens looks for a DA. Byford looks for $40 billion with cops on buses—‘cause that’ll totally work. Legislators pull an all-nighter and bans plastic bags while they’re at it. Cuomo pulls in $25K-a-plate at secret fundraiser—luckily his budget director was there to count ALL THAT COIN.

"7 f*ckin' students..."

...Out of 895! Why can't black and brown kids win the specialized high school admissions game? 'Cause NYC's Hunger Games-style education system is a lose-lose. We volunteer as TRIBUTE! Plus, no collusion my ass, the Mueller brief summary is revealed. We’re gagging! 'Cause our fave NYS electeds are roomies! Ritchie Torres has been working out and now he's ready to run. And how come Bill de Blasio don’t get no love?!

"No business being this good"

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a super politician! That’s what we’re calling the new crop of leaders with Kryptonian-level political powers. From AOC to Max Rose to Jessica Ramos, these new electeds are in a league of their own. Plus, Laura Curran just says no to drugs. Cuomo pits Democrats against Democrats—again. Greg Meeks takes the reins of the Queens Dems. Meanwhile, who wants to take the reins of New York City? Hakeem Jeffries? Maybe, but Speaker of the House is looking real cute.

That is the question! Young politicos around New York are out here faced with an AOC choice—do I wait my turn or skip the line? Plus, Cuomo selected Jay Jacobs as NYS Democratic Party Chair and took an ax to fusion voting. A coup in the Staten Island Democratic Party—wait, where is Staten Island? Queens Democrats reclaim their time. Meanwhile, AOC for Mayor or nah?

Wow! It's like that, huh? Politicians are people too, y'all—or at least that's what they want you to think. Plus, it's our very 1st episode (oh, and Bernie announced for President). Sex work is hard work. What's in her box is in her box! Where the hell does AOC live? Baby come back! Cuomo isn't taking the Amazon break-up well. And the winning winner won. Viva La Public Advocate! Now what do they do again?
