Too Cold for Global Warming

1/18/2020
More
This week President Trump chastised teenage activist Greta Thunberg for not "chilling out" and "watching a movie." Chilling out, it seems, is a great alternative for Global Warming. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of legislation helping out with that. Since March, the topic of climate change has consistently been at the front of the conversation between presidential candidates; from nuclear power to frontline communities, everyone has something to say. Join Danielle and Jon as we tackle...

The Number One Way to Assassinate Someone

11/26/2019
More
The one great thing about Watergate is that it's the gift that keeps on giving. When we think we're done, we learn of a new scandal, a new plot, a new truth that is revealed. Watergate was the scandal that rocked the country, but to this day there is much that the country has never heard about. Join Danielle and special guest, Kiera, as they dive into one of the most interesting conspiracy theories in this nation's history: the murder of Dorothy Hunt. Dorothy Hunt was the wife of E. Howard...

The rise of China was all the rage in the 2010's, unfortunately American citizens let go of that one after the 24 hour news cycle (shoutout to Russian-hacked-the-election-mass-hysteria.) The new anti-Russia hype took the stage full force during the second Democratic Primary Debate, and has been on the minds of Americans ever since. Join Danielle and a very special guest as we question what President Donald Trump's fickle foreign policy has to do with the rise of these nations, and ask the...

Simply Southern Democrats

11/16/2019
More
Yesterday, Former Governor Bevin made history in conceding the Kentucky Gubernatorial election to Former Attorney General Andy Beshear, turning the Governor's seat in Kentucky blue. Three years earlier, Trump had carried this deep red state by 30 points. Today, Democrats have turned to key elections in the south to ask if the wave of blue support means a change in the national narrative and potential foreshadowing for the national election. Join Danielle and a very special guest as we ask...

And Then There Were 17: A Postmortem Analysis of Beto O'Rourke

11/12/2019
More
This past week, Beto O'Rourke became the first 'big' presidential candidate to bow out of the Democratic Primaries, a trend that will hopefully carry on to consolidate the Democratic Party. But why? Tune in as Danielle and Angelina question where Beto's presidential campaign began and where it ended. P.S. Yes, yes we know it's now 18 candidates (Bloomberg announced WHILE we were recording [so you can catch our reactions there]) but 7 and 17 was alliteration that was too good to pass...

The US forgot imperialism was "so 1900s" (they just added more about the military bases and interventions for oil.) So, George and Danielle took it upon themselves to leave a little bit of a reminder following the news that President Trump decided to remove US forced from Northern Syria, exacerbating the tensions between the Turks and Kurds in the area. Join George and Danielle as they debate what this means for the international community and how it's going to play out in the end. --- Send...
