IT'S OK YOU CAN LEAVE THE FETAL POSITION NOW.

Fact Check Dave keeps Will in line as they discuss Democrats winning back the House, the navigation of a tough Senate map, gubernatorial races and more. 

Oct 23, 2018

It's here. Early vote has begun. You know how we said it'd be a good year for Democrats but maybe not a great year? Facts.

So panic stations everyone. (Aka sign up for a canvass shift!)

 

We talk key races we're watching across the country, can we trust in the Midwest and how we're staying (relatively) sane.

Franco finally gave in and we talk some Colorado politics -- more than you want to know about the state senate, the Gubernatorial Election, and what happens when #WinterIsComing. We also talk about the Arizona and Florida primaries, John McCain's passing, Ted Cruz being a reptile and more.

After covering things at Netroots Nation in New Orleans, Ryan and Franco discuss the premier progressive convention in depth. (Shout outs to Kaili Lambe for helping us cover events & Mary Rickles Conley for allowing us to attend again.) 

At 9:45 we pivot to MN politics -- it's not a flyover state! They just had an exciting primary election. After that we cover the NY State Legislature at 17:25 and WA state legislature at 21:38.

Ryan then brought up Florida's state legislature at 23:32 and Franco wouldn't stop talking about it. At 27:47 he tells us the gubernatorial candidate he's voting for and at 32 minutes he does it for FL-27. 

At 35:35 they talk about AZ-02 and then there's a quick wrap up.

World Cup Fever hits the pod, as do various soccer ailments but it's ok because we're #InOurPrime. We talk US Senate landscape, NY-14 where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (yes Will, there's an i in her name...) shocks Joe Crowley and we cross talk about soccer and how it shows the need for liberal communitarian nationalism. 

If those words didn't make sense, it's ok. They soon will.

Will's back on the podcast so we had to get weird.

Here's what's up with today's show: 

4:45 : IL-03 and what we can learn from Illinois
13:00 Stormy Daniels
21:10 New Budget Deal
25:00 Quick conversation around March for Our Lives and banning bump stocks.

Mar 20, 2018

We start by talking about Parkland between two South Florida natives, then move on talking about Donald Trump's administration and Betsy DeVos (11:05) then talk a little about PA-18 (17:45) and wrap up by making an endorsement (21:10).

Jan 30, 2018

For those loyal folks out there: We're back! We talk about the shitdown (or shutdown, depending on your keyboard) and how Se. Schumer screwed things up, then we pivot to Russia like a desperate Republican campaign and we finish by talking about this years elections.
