The Unbelievable Plot to Hack the Man Who Invented Christmas

Our 6th installment of Strange Days has arrived in time for the holidays! This week we come to you from the 34th annual Miami Book Fair. MSNBC’s Katy Tur talks about her book, Unbelievable, detailing her experience on one of the strangest campaign trails to date. Next up, we have the man who tried to warn us of Russian interference into our election, Malcolm Nance, author of The Plot to Hack America. And finally, we speak with the producers of The Man Who Invented Christmas, premiering in theaters this week. We hope you enjoy the show!

“He runs with energy of the Sun”

Turn up the heat because we’re cookin’ with grease! First we stir the pot with Donna Brazile and the controversy around her new tell-all book, Hacks. Next we separate the ingredients that make up Trump supporters with POLITICO Magazine’s Michael Grunwald and POLITICO’s Michael Kruse. Finally we feast inside the mind of the most powerful man in the world – the mind of Robert Mueller with one of the men that knows him best, Garrett Graff, author of The Threat Matrix: Inside Robert Mueller’s FBI. There’s a special sweet cherry surprise guest on top, who will preview our coverage of the Miami Book Fair in town this weekend. Stay tuned!

“A populist in the streets, corporatist in the sheets”

Title credit to the witty and talented Michael Grunwald from POLITICO Magazine, who joins us to talk about Trump’s Swamp a year after the election. Simon Rosenberg from the NDN phones in to discuss the hostile ‘shirts vs. skins’ nature of Fox News in the Trumpian era, and artist Billie Grace Lynn pays us a visit to talk about the national controversy surrounding her latest ‘American Mask’ exhibition.
