This week, we get concrete proof of the Trump campaign staffers listening to us and taking our advice (it's great advice, trust us) and we look at key Senate races. We also have the pleasure of talking to the Executive Director of PrideFund.org (7:56), a new organization that's working at the crossroads of the LGBT and gun violence prevention movement to #DisarmHate.
We catch up with Will who survived Philly, on basically no sleep. We discuss some of our favorite moments from there, but we also look at polling and the effect the convention had. We talk a little about GOP endorsements of Hillary and we cover how we'd deal with The Donald being our candidate.
Hold your tears audience, no Will for this podcast, but Ryan Donohue ably steps in! We covered a lot of ground, previewing the DNC, recapping the RNC and talking about Tim Kaine and his rollout at FIU in Miami. We chat a bit about some of the leaks and their results coming out of the Democratic National Committee as well
We didn't time it so the thirteenth pod was about the RNC, but we're staying indoors to avoid black cats and not going anywhere near a mirror. Unlike Donald Trump we assume...we're not yet done with the RNC but we explore plagiarism from Trump's family and the catastrophe from night 1 and 2 at the convention. Speaking of catastrophic, the final branch in Alabama to fall into disrepair is discussed and we also talk a little about Mike Pence and the potential Hillary Clinton VP.
We'll have more from Netroots Nation and the last two nights of the RNC soon, in the mean time, enjoy this picture of four people who are likely to need some major therapy in the near future.
This weeks podcast is a little longer. We chat a little on the shootings of #AltonSterling and #PhilandoCastile as well as #Dallas. We summarized our thoughts on #Brexit. We chat with Kaili Lambe from @Ultraviolet around sexual assault and the #StanfordRape Case as they seek to #RemoveJudgePersky and finally, we talk about Donald Trump's very strange operation and his Game of Thrones-style campaign leadership.
It only feels like 1996 was the last time we podcasted. There are a few major revelations in our pod. No major alien technologies but we talk about Vice President Joe Biden, the X Factor to 2016 that never came to fruition, we cover the AZ, CO, FL Senate races. And we had to talk about what we learned from the Presidential primaries.
It's a quick pod and time will fly by. Crummy level satisfaction guaranteed.
KEEP CALM AND POD ON.
That's what we did this week while the Republican Party welcomed their new, orange overlord. It seems as if no one actually thought it would happen, until it did. What does this mean for the Republican Party? Why was John Kasich still in the race? What's the Hillary camp's response? We talk about all that AND we have a GOPutz of the Month. Thanks Kansas, you're at least good for electing horrible people.
The Republicans turn on each other and we have numbers to back it up. A listener's question is addressed at the top and then Beth Clayton talks about the impeachment of a Governor that was unveiled due to a sex scandal. Don't worry, we have NY predictions included at the end as well.
It's enough to make Olivia Pope herself listen.
We're back in your earbuds (or car speakers). It's been a quiet time electorally, although not so much on the Trump talking front. We look at California politics after they passed a $15 minimum wage, regulate "Crisis Pregnancy Centers" and more. We also look at what the Trump effect will be on US Senate and House races and Will tries to figure out, what exactly would happen if delegates were given out differently.
