Kagro in the Morning - May 5, 2021

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Greg Dworkin welcome you to the Cinco de Star Wars KITM Holiday Special — tomorrow: Revenge of the Sixth. Joe Biden’s July 4 vaccination goals might have changed, but his pandemic safety goals have not. The vaccination rate is slowing, and so is the drop in cases. Pfizer expects to file for full US FDA approval of its Covid-19 vaccine for 16-to-85-year-olds, and soon the age will open up to...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) May the fourth, the day David Waldman hosts the entire KITM using his beloved “Jar Jar Binks” impression, and CBS refers to Republican voter suppression as “tightening state voter laws”. Some people like to tell the truth. Some people like themselves better when they tell the truth. Some people know you like them better when they tell the truth, and they like that. So, what’s in it for Republicans?...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Greg Dworkin are back together again! Their pent-up news energy threatened to explode at any minute (as did Greg’s computer). Good news! The world has emerged victorious over influenza this year! COVID-19, not yet. India is calling their pandemic response a crime against humanity. In the US, “herd immunity” has probably fallen out of reach, but we might not need to achieve it to reach...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Last night was The Big Speech, not that you could have told from my TV. But you probably didn’t need a TV to know how Republicans would react. Or the traditional media, for that matter. The FBI searched Rudy’s home and office yesterday, because he’s a villainous traitor. And that’s all I have to say about that. January 6th insurrectionists who aren’t already in jail are... running for elective office. The Q...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Well, the CDC is out with its new outdoor masking guidance, which certain people will no doubt take to be proof that they were right all along, even though they probably weren’t. Meanwhile, excess vaccines may indeed begin to flow, though we still don’t know any more about those contracts. You’ll never guess what Fox & Friends claims they see lurking around every corner. Aw, you did guess it! It’s...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Every show’s first hour could, theoretically, be about the Republicans’ latest fake outrage. While the second hour could be about the very real outrages Republicans spark. Or at least, enlightening ourselves about how horribly off-base they are. None of the Gop-adjacent outrages have changed the fact that the pandemic is still with us, of course. And yes, excess deaths are pretty much what we always thought they...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Greg Dworkin bring their usual red carpet style and substance to this morning’s KITM: It’s Oscar time, the time when we discover all of the stuff that we should have been watching, had we any taste. This year however, we have a winner that is not only good for you, it is actually good! Two Distant Strangers was written by Travon Free, who wrote for the Daily Show, and was directed by Free and...

4/23/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) On today’s KITM, David Waldman opens with a simple comment on banana peel gags, then proceeds to weave a discussion of bananas, insurance fraud, Tammany-Hall political reform, the inherent value of infrastructure, salt, SALT, breathing, and the proud history of sanitation workers into it. Just like Rachel Maddow! We’re way ahead of the Maddow curve when it comes to election reform, that is, “election systems and...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, this is Earth Day! David Waldman eco-celebrates in KITM Earth Headquarters. Meanwhile, Eco-rebels misutilize poo outside the White House, perhaps in an effort to get their hands on pink wheelbarrows. Elsewhere on Earth, Greg Dworkin brings us the latest in polling and pandemics. Are vaccine rejectors like motorcyclists that refuse to wear a helmet? If so, why do they keep...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman gets us over the hump, that many of us will sled down this morning. Derek Chauvin is guilty. Guilty. Guilty. Accountability, and maybe a step towards justice took place last night, as Black lives mattered, for a moment. Justice requires neverending vigilance. In this case, the credit goes to 17 year old Darnella Frazier and her cellphone videography prowess. Then, police in Columbus, Ohio released...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) It’s the 50th of 420! Happy! ...uh, where were we? David Waldman delivers sad news: Ted Nugent has contracted COVID-19, and as his, and our luck, would have it, continues to survive. Ted Nugent and Donald Trump somehow both recovered to see another bigoted dawn. If only Ted would have chosen to suck exclusively American guns and bullets, he might not have this problem now. As for Covid, an ounce of prevention...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) The Mighty KITM Worldwide Multiplex has battery backup! Nothing can stop us now! David Waldman and Greg Dworkin are charged up and ready to go: If only John Boehner Republicans were in charge there would be no immigration concerns, mass shootings or racism. If George W. Bush was in charge the world would be a progressive utopia. Ah, but Republicans had that former guy come in and ruin it all, aka “William of...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) How about politicide? No, not “political genocide”… but literal “political suicide” — an opposing political party united in an actual deadly suicide pact of their own choosing. Not the entire population of the party, mind you, but precisely focused, so that the more entrenched their ideology, the tighter they will all grip as they leap off the cliff together... It’s a fantasy, of course, as it would be impossible...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Happy Tax Day! (Traditional) David Waldman starts off Thursday with a lightning round list of Republicans being Republicans: In Florida, Matt Gaetz’ former colleagues want to check out some high school genitalia. Gaetz’ former classmates will tell you Matt hasn’t changed a bit since high school… maybe even junior high. Kristi Noem will make undocumented immigrants feel about as unwanted as Native Americans in her...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Are vaccines breaking the pandemic wave? Oh, so close — Maybe, maybe not, but it does feel more close every day. Even so, who would want to go back to work with the people you used to work with? Or back into public with them for that matter? You can get a lot more done at home, anyhow. For instance, check out David Waldman and Greg Dworkin. Whether working from home or at the studios in KITM World Headquarters,...

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...

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...
