Daily Kos Radio is LIVE at 9AM ET!

Wednesday. Halfway home!

We’ll be dragging ourselves out of bed, post-special election night, and welcoming Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter back “on the air,” and wondering whether yesterday’s madness was just a dream.

You know. “Wednesday.”

Listen right here at 9:00 AM ET!

PODCAST LISTENERS: There’s a new podcast platform in town, and the big news is: this one pays! RadioPublic pays podcast producers on a CPM basis, for listens on their native app (available for iPhones & Androids), financed by pre- and post-roll ads they insert. Not a bad way to support the show, with somebody else’s money!

So if you’re a podcast listener, please consider dowloading the RadioPublic app on your Android or iOS phone. Yes, you can still download directly from their site, or listen to the player embedded here at Daily Kos. But it’s listens in their app that count toward payment.

Nothing changes on our end. It’s still Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, and even Armando. Plus also, me. And you! As always, we still want your voice on the air with us. Sit down with your smart phone or other electronic recording device and send us your stories and commentary to share with the audience. There’s no easier way to try your hand at podcasting, without all the hassle!

Of course there’s no substitute for having your support via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash. (And hey, if you want a cool trick for donating sorta-kinda cost free, get their cash.me app and use this share code to get $5 in your account (plus $5 in mine) when you send your first $5 (to anyone)!

For now, how about one on the house? Here’s what we did last time out, on our LIVE show:

The Trump sewer really backed up quick this morning. David Waldman barely stayed a step ahead of the gusher to give a live accounting of the bodies floating by: Rex (Everything) Tillerson could have sworn that everything was going great. Sure, there was a little tension here or there, but the boss had his back. And, he was just getting into his job as Secretary of State, siding with our ally, condemning Russia and… Well, Donald Trump hates people that feel a little differently from him. Actually Donald loves Rex Tillerson, but just did not “love” love him. Then there’s Johnny McEntee, who was ejected so fast he couldn’t put his coat on. Remember: Never do business without giving the boss a taste. Does Republican Tom Rooney seriously believe the House intelligence committee has even heard of the word “credibility”? Oh, and Roger Stone might have conspired with Julian Assange against Democrats. Is nothing sacred? That was this morning. The second half of KITM was devoted to tomorrow. David was joined by Armando and Chris Reeves, Daily Kos Community Outreach Organizer (and much more) to talk about the nuts and bolts of how the Democratic Party plans to operate, how to develop and boost diversity and participation, determine who participates in primaries, encouraging primaries, and the primary schedule for 2020!

(Thanks to Scott Anderson for the show summary! Please help me pay him more!)
