Messing with the Enemy

Are you out there? Still holding on? I know you hear me say it often, but I do not exaggerate when I say each week gets stranger and stranger. This week was no different. This week we talk cybersecurity and Russian interference with former FBI agent Clint Watts, author of Messing with the Enemy: Surviving in a World of Hackers, Terrorists, Russians, and Fake News. Next, we talk Mueller investigation with former federal prosecutor in the Watergate scandal, Nick Akerman, who offers some juicy predictions of who is next to be indicted. Finally, we wrap with author Dan Kaufman, to talk about his new book, The Fall of Wisconsin: The Conservative Conquest of a Progressive Bastion and the Future of American Politics. Hope you enjoy!

Treasonous Traitor Trump

Hi folks, welcome back to #StrangeDays! This week we’re bringing you a variety of compelling conversations. First, we start with a world that I come from, the world of progressive talk radio. Dean Obeidallah joins us to talk to us about what it’s like covering the everyday absurdity that is the Trump presidency. Following that, we have a conversation with a dear friend of mine, MAMA Stephanie Miller, to get her take on the talk radio in these strange days we find ourselves in. Moving onto a more serious note and a topic that is near and dear to not only me but to the city and country that I love, immigration. We invited ACLU Deputy Director of Florida, Melba Pearson, and Juan Calderon, an organizer for the Florida Immigration Coalition, to discuss the continued and not forgotten saga of Trump’s zero-tolerance policy on separating families at the border. You don’t want to miss this one, folks. Enjoy the show.

 

Infrastructure Week

I’m baaack! I know it’s been two weeks since our last show so I hope you didn’t miss me too much. After the long holiday, we had to bring back both of the M & M boys to catch up on infrastructure week under the Trump administration, as well as the latest SCOTUS pick. After that. Marc joins us as we continue our coverage on the Florida gubernatorial race with Orlando businessman and Democratic candidate for governor Chris King.

A Progressive Governor for Florida?

This week we’re bringing you another interview with a candidate for, what I would say, is one of the most important races in the country. That is the Florida gubernatorial race, and we brought on democratic candidate Andrew Gillum, mayor of Tallahassee and a FAMU Rattler alllll the way. Of course, we had to bring the heat with the M&M boys(Marc Caputo of POLITICO Florida and Michael Grunwald of POLITICO Magazine). Enjoy!

The Week that Broke Me

Welcome back #StrangeDays listeners! This week, prepare for a rollercoaster of emotions – we start with the matriarch of comedy and mayor of zero f**ksville, Kathy Griffin as she recounts her last year and why she is not sorry about the photo seen ’round the world. We end on a somber note this week as we discuss the recent passing of the brilliant Anthony Bourdain. Friends of the show Billy Corben from Rakontur and Marc Caputo of POLITICO Florida join us to remember the legend, and to talk a little politics.
