Stephen Miller Won’t Pick Up His Trash (E34)

If you want to support the show, you can do so on Patreon for as little as $1 a month. You’ll get access to bonus content each month and help us keep the show going!

We discuss the recent events of resting evil face Stephen Miller, and examine his long history of racism and white nationalism. In addition, we look at GOP attempts to rip away our right to a day in court. But just like with Trumpcare, united Democratic opposition and at least one Republican defection spells good news for the rest of us. And that’s not the only bit of good news! Betsy DeVos recently backed off her spectacularly dumb idea to make student loan servicing Too Big To Fail.

Reflections on Orlando and the Questions Congress SHOULD be asking (E13)

Kade and Alexis discuss the tragedy in Orlando, the response from politicians, the failures of the FBI, the questions politicians should be asking vs the reaction they are having, and how proud we’ve been of the LGBTQ community’s response to this tragedy, including rejecting responding to bigotry with more bigotry and Islamophobia.

Islamophobia in America, FBI vs Apple Update (E10)

Kade gives a quick update on the FBI vs Apple case, and explains the government’s curious backing down from their attempt to force Apple to hack into its own device (as discussed last episode). And we interview writer, activist, and Executive Director of CAIR-AZ Imraan Siddiqi (@imraansiddiqi) about dangerous election rhetoric, Ted Cruz’s fear-mongering advisers, and Islamaphobia in America.
