Welcome back loyal Strange Day listeners, you’re about to hear a whopper of an episode. We begin with filmmaker Jen Senko as she breaks down how the right-wing media brainwashed her father in her 2016 film, “The Brainwashing of My Dad”. Next, we got GOP strategist and ‘Never Trumper’ Rick Wilson on the line, joined by former Congressman Patrick Murphy, and stranger to the podcast, Marc Caputo of POLITICO Florida, to talk Democratic Party strategy, memo wars, and Trumplandia. Finally, we wrap with a fuego round of rapid-fire.
Sorry I’m late! I barely made it back in time for my own show, and what a strange week it’s been. Remember when Donald Trump declared war on the NFL? “Son’s of b**ches” if I recall correctly. Well, we get a player’s perspective of that debacle from none other than Super Bowl Champ Jonathan Vilma, joined by fellow UM alumni and 30-for-30 documentary filmmaker Billy Corben. Unfortunately, those pesky M&M boys (Marc Caputo and Michael Grunwald) crashed the party and joined us for quite a round of political football.
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!
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!
