Ep 648: Marshall Law and Student Loans

4/28/2022
A long one this week as there was very much media fail. And we were almost done with recording when we went off on a tangent about what is REALLY unfair about the student loan situation. Warning: the topic of "Mean Jean Schmidt and abortion" comes up and Blue Gal swears a LOT.

Ep 646: The Midterms Are Coming!

4/14/2022
DG and BG rail against those arguing that the Democratic Party should move to "the center." What center!? And also against disinterested Americans when reproductive rights AND democracy itself are under serious threat. It's time to ENLIST! More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

Ep 645: The Patient Capital of Fascism

4/7/2022
The passing of the great Eric Boehlert reminds us that there’s no institutional support for liberal truth. Single shingle truth-tellers asking for subscription five-dollar bills is the liberal business model, while Peter Thiel and Rebekah Mercer spend millions on Right-Wing Structure. That said, Fox viewers paid to watch CNN **and take notes** change their minds a bit. More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

Ep 644: Happy 17th Blogiversary, Driftglass

3/31/2022
In true blog fashion, Driftglass says he doesn't want to talk Oscars so we talk Oscars (for a couple minutes) then move on to CBS, Mulvaney, Don't Say Gay, and Madison Cawthorn.

Ep 642: The Party Of Tax Increases?

3/17/2022
Republicans want to increase your taxes, Democrats want to lower the cost of insulin and prescription drugs. It's not complicated!

Ep 641: How Did We Get Here?

3/10/2022
How do we get to the point where Bill Barr says with a straight face that Trump is utterly unqualified to be president, but that he would never vote for a Democrat? And where does that leave the Democratic Party's need to compromise with wackjob Republicans? (We think you know the answer to THAT one.) More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

Ep 640: And Like That, Republicans Reset Their Software

3/3/2022
The great Republican software reset has begun, as Tucker Carlson claims he never supported Russia, and White-Wing Evangelicals set their brains to "Pelosi 9/11 Socialism" instead of "Trump 1/6 Big Lie." And Biden's State of the Union was great overall, yet contained a Sista Soulja moment we wish he had avoided. More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

Ep 639: Truth Social Will Be Fixed 'In Two Weeks,' But Not Ukraine

2/24/2022
Republicans can't help but politicize a Russian invasion of one of our allies. Trump won't shut up, but can't fix anything in less than his "two weeks" lie. The backfire for Putin and an even worse one for Fox. And we're giving up despair and cynicism (especially as it denotes intelligence) for Lent. And thank God or the Flying Spaghetti Monster or whatever higher power there is that Joe Biden is actually President. More at http://ProLeftPod.com! Support the show...

Ep 638: Republicans Are NOT Democrats' Responsibility

Ep 637: From Soup to Nuts

2/10/2022
Did some nut say gazpacho? Also Sarah Palin makes a fool of herself in court, a Louisiana US Senate candidate (Gary Chambers, Jr) makes one helluva campaign ad, and we discuss why Democrats are the FUN party (It's all the sex.

Ep 636: Six More Weeks of Winter

2/3/2022
We're snowed in, and expect many of you are too! Driftglass spends his time observing "shelter culture" in the media and Bluegal talks about Win Red's recent loss in court and Facebook's loss in the eyeballs market. Also the real crimes of Jeff Zucker aren't about affairs in the office, but obscenities on the air like Corey Lewandowski. More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

Ep 635: Nothing Personal, Pal

1/27/2022
Joe Biden's "hot mic" not-an-accident moment was not for Peter Doocy, it was for Biden's base. A new SCOTUS justice freaks out the right even before they know who SHE will be. Sarah Palin tests positive and dines out anyway, and no, M&M shoes do not distract us from the criminal investigations Republican fraudsters, especially their favorite president, are facing.

Ep 634: Maybe Joe Biden Is Simply A #@%^ing Democrat!

1/20/2022
People in the media insisting Biden move to the center - wherever that is, punch a hippie or do a "Sista Soldja" moment - are just in the habit of hating plain ordinary progressive Democrats.

Ep 633: Merrick Garland Does Something

1/13/2022
Merrick Garland arrested 11 Oath Keepers and charged them with sedition. Blue Gal has some simple (and possible) math for the midterms, and Driftglass pushes back on Republican pundits who have opinions on what Democrats "must" do. Really.
