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.
Fernand chats with Norm Ornstein at the Miami Book Fair about his latest book, One Nation After Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet Deported. Next up, former Health & Human Services Secretary and former University of Miami President Dr. Donna Shalala drops in to discuss the future of healthcare in America. Finally, our favorite dynamic duo, POLITICO Florida’s Marc Caputo and POLITICO Magazine’s Mike Grunwald stop in to talk and close out the show with a round of rapid fire.
