Hello, and Happy July! We’re back once again with our live show. Were there any large gatherings of Democratic presidential hopefuls that materially changed the 2020 outlook while we were gone?
I left Greg Dworkin in charge of watching the debates while I was away, so he can probably tell us what’s up punditry-wise since then. Remind me to tune in for that part. I gotta find out what happened.
And of course, Trump traveled overseas, to that means there are fifty-something disasters that require untangling. Should be a full day/week!
Listen right here at 9:00 AM ET!
PODCAST LISTENERS: There’s a new podcast platform in town, and the big news is: this one pays! RadioPublic pays podcast producers at $20 CPM for listens on their native app (available for iPhones & Androids), financed by pre- and post-roll ads they insert. Not a bad way to support the show, with somebody else’s money!
So if you’re a podcast listener, please consider downloading the RadioPublic app on your Android or iOS phone. Yes, you can still download directly from their site, or listen to the player embedded here at Daily Kos. But it’s listens in their app that count toward payment. And get this: listen to just three episodes in their app, and we earn a one-time, $1 “loyal listener” bonus.
Nothing changes on our end. It’s still Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, and even Armando. Plus also, me. And you! As always, we still want your voice on the air with us. Sit down with your smart phone or other electronic recording device and send us your stories and commentary to share with the audience. There’s no easier way to try your hand at podcasting, without all the hassle!
Of course there’s no substitute for having your support via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash. (And hey, if you want a cool trick for donating sorta-kinda cost free, get their cash.me app and use this share code to get $5 in your account (plus $5 in mine) when you send your first $5 (to anyone)!
For now, how about one on the house? Here’s what we did on our last show:x Embedded Content
David Waldman continues his embargo on Democratic debate takeaways, but he didn’t skimp on providing an ALL-NEW Kagro in the Morning! Sure, some of it is from vintage 2015 recordings, but they remain new to us! Anyhow, if you had heard back it then, you’d have no idea how prescient it is right now: Back in 2015, with Hillary Rodham Clinton soon to be elected as the the first female President in US history, reality show lunatic Donald Trump proposed an inane scheme to round up 11 million immigrants, costing the US hundreds of billions of dollars, an unimaginable expansion of authoritarianism just for the satisfaction of a handful of vindictive racists…. So, uhm, what if Trump won’t accept 2020 defeat, and instead refuses to leave office? Meanwhile, Donald added another million to his golf tab with a visit to Trump National Doral. Taxpayers paid him to do it, as did campaign donors, influence peddlers, even golfers. Ivanka Trump made almost $4 million from Trump Washington hotel last year. Trump’s official in charge of diplomacy carried a whip to office to intimidate staff. As Jamal Khashoggi’s bone-saw murder at the hands of Saudis comes more and more into focus, it’s not getting prettier. Quick-thinking residents of Ostritz, Germany, bought up hundreds of crates of beer to keep them away from Neo-Nazis at their rally.Thanks to Scott Anderson for the show summary!
