Kagro in the Morning - April 13, 2021

4/13/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) It has been days now since David Waldman received his second vaccine shot and yet he still doesn’t feel bad at all! (He feels a bit ripped off, to be honest.) He still has a chance though, and we here all hope he feels lousy soon. Nothing marks the end of a pandemic like people getting back out and shooting each other, and themselves. Did your gun shoot your neighbor? Your child? Maybe it gave you a bullet,...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and the rest of the staff here at KITM World Headquarters got all our shots for all 19 Covids and we’re raring to tear into the news this week: The Derek Chauvin trial continues, as the examples of why these trials are needed multiply. Minnesota police shot and killed Daunte Wright after detaining him for air fresheners on his mirror. More protests, more teargas and rubber bullets. A...

Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez, Owen Wilson and Luke Wilson, all those Hemsworths, David Waldman and… David isn’t saying. But, it is whomever’s birthday! Happy birthday! While we’re celebrating, thank you to all you out there sending in recurring contributions! We find that we rarely have to call you defectors to keep you in line. Stay healthy, keep the money coming, and never take the drug Ivermectin unless...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Who is it? Dave? Dave’s not here, man... Who? Oh, David Waldman? Yeah, he and Greg Dworkin are over on the couch contemplating the ceiling and national politics: Who would have guessed that the US War on Drugs spawning generations of poverty, crime, and corruption throughout Latin America might eventually lead to problems for us? Joe Biden’s going to take our guns! Well, your homemade guns, and the ones you...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman spent the night tracing the roots of his family tree until he slipped and fell down a genealogy rabbit hole. He discovered that similar names might go with dissimilar people, but sometimes that just doesn’t matter. David has wanted the Senate filibuster dead for years. Now that it’s either the filibuster or democracy, others are catching up. The Senate parliamentarian will let Democrats bypass the...

4/6/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman handcrafts yet another small-batch KITM, lovingly prepared once daily in our World Headquarters’ kitchen. Joan McCarter joins us with an exquisite water ganache, and her usual political acumen. President Joe Biden keeps moving his own goalposts… And he’s still scoring! Now, all US adults will be eligible for the Covid vaccine on April 19. Saying Boris Johnson is “smarter than Trump” is like saying...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman wishes us all a happy Canadian Easter Monday, regardless of nationality or religion, except for Orthodox Christians, who have boiled their eggs way too soon. Greg Dworkin hauls in two rafts of stories, giving us a lot to talk about. Are we safe from the pandemic yet? No, but we are much safer. Will herd immunity stop the disease? No, but we in the herd will be much more secure. Yes, we still have...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! All fooled out? You’ve come to the right place, as David Waldman, and we at KITM, do not suffer fools gladly… Okay, perhaps with a little glee... The only letdown with the Matt PizzaGaetz scandal is that it’s not happening to Rand and Ted too. Other than that, GaetzGate has got everything — party drugs, naked women hula-hooping, online payments and solicitation, condoms by the gross… which means it still has a...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! April Fools! It is only day one of April, but there are plenty of fools to call out. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin only have a couple of hours today, but a whole month to go: Let’s start with Ted Cruz of the panhandle, Matt Gaetz. Gaetz’ Mann act adds a few new players, including a former Department of Justice official, a presumed dead Iranian hostage, Andrew McCabe, William Barr… it’s enough to make your Tucker...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman and Greg Dworkin bring us Wednesday! Maybe Wednesday brought them… Either way, it works out for us: It’s Infrastructure Week! For real! No big trucks for President Joe to go vroom-vroom in, but some actual plans. Republicans don’t plan to vote for any of it but do plan to take credit for all of it… and talk about transgender girls. Hey, have you been vaccinated yet? Anecdotes abound suggesting...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman pilots the KITM’s raft of stories through Tuesday without a sandbar in sight. Hey, have you been vaccinated yet? President Joe Biden wants 90% of us eligible within 3 weeks, and the rest of us a month from now, so that we can all celebrate Get Closer to Normal Day, on July 4th! For the time being, cut out the crazy stuff! Do you want to doom us all? Speaking of, those folks who thought Covid was a...

Listen to David Waldman and Greg Dworkin on today’s KITM, then find yourself a volcano and a soccer ball and have ye a joyous Passover, arr! Giant container ship “Ever Given” finally made the long-awaited pivot to freedom, and scampered back into open water, leaving reporters misty-eyed on shore. We are still stuck with a COVID pandemic, though. Thanks to Joe, vaccines are pouring into millions of arms....

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman brings us the Friday KITM morning news, traffic on the 10’s: We still have that container ship jackknifed out on the Suez, blocking northbound… well, all transit. Authorities caution that honking horns will not help the situation, and advise patience as plans are implemented. Yesterday, President Joe Biden was asked if he was throwing his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential election. Other...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman brings us the latest KITM news for Thursday. Greg Dworkin is first up with sports analysis: UConn beats Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament second-round game, setting up a meeting with Iowa in Sweet 16. Syracuse were worthy opponents. Next up is Joe Biden’s first press conference! Joe has some experience with journalists. ABC’s Bob Clark, who scored Joe Biden’s first interview, won’t be attending...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) You think you’re facing a crisis? How about that poor guy trying to parallel park in the Suez canal? In Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu is on his, like, hundredth election without “a clear path” (which probably still won’t get rid of him). You could be Meghan McCain. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin discuss the latest crises and non-crises, along with the latest impressions of those in the news: There is no...

3/23/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) The pandemic might be waning, it’s nicer weather, and so mass shootings have rebounded. Shootings are again coming so fast, it’s hard to forget the last one, before a new one arrives. Is it too soon to mention yesterday’s massacre while we are talking about last week’s? Not anymore — Everyone, from the NRA to Keith Olbermann already have their lines rehearsed and are ready to go. Also, this season we have Lauren...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman makes it official, throwing out the first bag of mulch, and his back, to kick off the spring season. Greg Dworkin sails in with his jumbo raft o’stories. It’s summarizing time! Democrats that like to worry, worry that HR 1 might hurt democracy. Republicans worry that HR 1 might hurt Republicans, and make them all “former guys”. Scaredy Dems want to go back to baby steps, but big plans can carry the...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) TGIF! At least, for those of you who are “Friday observant”, which thanks to Joe, the flock welcomes even more each week. Atlanta police aren’t commenting on whether the killing of eight people—six of them Asian or Asian American women—was a hate crime. The spokesman for the Georgia Sheriff's Office isn’t commenting on anything anymore. Was the shooter just trying to wean himself from being enticed by women?...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Greg Dworkin deliver the good news — Joe Biden really is here, the former guy isn’t, and COVID hasn’t canceled the brackets. Is the worst over for the COVID-19 pandemic? Most Americans believe it is. Experts urge caution with 15 states increasing their cases by 10 to 25 percent. It has been a little while since some Americans really listened to experts, however. Sometimes it is because actual...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Greg Dworkin wore green and attempted to drive the snakes from KITM World Headquarters this morning, but that’s trickier than you’d guess. Robert Aaron Long had a bad day yesterday, entering three Atlanta Georgia spas and killing 8 people, most of them Asian women, at least half of them Korean. Who did he really hate? Asians? Women? Everyone? We probably won’t need to speculate much further, as...
