Bienvenidos Strange Days faithful! This episode is sure to be a treat. A lot has happened since we last spoke. Trump’s lawyer called it quits (I don’t blame him), Mueller and the investigation have been repeatedly attacked, and the army of women seeking justice against Trump gained victories. If you feel over your head in trying to comprehend everything that’s happened, you are not alone. So we will attempt to sort through it all with our friend and CNN legal expert Katie Phang, joined by the fearless journalist Marc Caputo of POLITICO Florida. We continue with our “Flip That Seat” series this week, speaking with the former prosecutor and man who is determined to replace Devin Nunes in Congress, Andrew Janz of the 22nd District of California. So take out your handy pocket-sized copy of the Constitution because it’s about to get real. Enjoy!
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.
Happy new year gang, it’s the return of the swamp! In our first episode of 2018, we’ll be talking to Simon Rosenberg, President of the New Democratic Network, to get his take on the “bomb cyclone” enrapturing Steve Bannon (aka Darth Vader) and the WH. Next, Chenell sparks up conversation with Ben Cort, author of “Weed, Inc. The Truth About the Pot Lobby, THC, and the Commercial Marijuana Industry”. Finally, we peek behind the curtains of Congress with former United States Congressman Joe Garcia.
