Description

A five-time Emmy winning SNL comedy writer/producer, joins a four-time #1 NYT bestselling author, a three-time highest-rated national progressive radio host, a two-time Grammy winning artist, and a former US Senator. So, it gets a little crowded in the booth when Al talks public policy and sometimes political comedy with notable guests. Think “The Daily” without the resources of the NYTimes.

How about if we stop using words like Trumpy, Trumpism & Trumpiest. What do those words really mean, truly stand for? Amoral? Corrupt? Authoritarian? Vulgar? Narcissistic? Power-hungry? Saying Trumpy is too benign. Let's call it like it is. Words matter.

Great one (for a change)! Thanks for explaining Largo; hadn't heard of it before. I also missed the fact that Sarah has a podcast, so now she has one more subscriber 🙂

This is SO depressing. Our democracy literally depends on Democrats winning and expanding majorities in the House AND Senate this fall. We need Al running the DNC.

Unfortunately the poor sound quality made this one extremely difficult to follow. Hard to know if this was a great one, for a change...

so how us this all legal and how can it be changed. I hate that my adult life has been with a government with these self indulgent game players wrecking government for billionaire interests. think what could have been without this paid off bullshit. I want them to face Justice and be forced to stop.

I look forward to my hour long drive to work on Sunday mornings so I can listen to Al's podcast. It's always informative and funny. He's good enough, smart enough and doggone it, people like him.
