We move away from all things Trump for an episode to talk with author Dan Ancona about his new book Venus Shrugged. Dan is a long time leader in the progressive movement, always imagining what a better country looks like and what technology and California can do to get us to that place. His new book meets the intersection of politics, race, sexuality and a vision for what the country could look like if progressives win.
Now go get the book!
We knew that Trump believed being President was harder than anticipated, but it doesn't help when you take stupid actions. Trump's 2016 campaign homie, James Comey, the head of the FBI and the man investigating Trump and his ties to Russia has been fired by...Trump. And with every hour that goes by the story gets worse.
It's all been said before but we're just going to repeat it because maybe if we say it three times, we'll wake up and things will be better.
Plus there's a funny story about a 5th grader.
Yeah, it's 100 days. Not years. It just feels that way. We dig in on what has worked for our nations first Orange President so far as well as why he seems to be top of the mind at all times.
It's also been 100 days of #Resistance. With no end in sight, we discuss what IS the resistance, what is it doing well and where can it still improve (hint:data). It's a fast paced pod that hopes the odds are ever in your favor.
