Daily Kos Radio is LIVE at 9 AM ET!

Well, at least it really is Friday.

Here’s hoping any potential wars wait until after the show. Wow, our times are so normal!

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 at $20 CPM 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 downloading 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. And get this: listen to just three episodes in their app, and we earn a one-time, $1 “loyal listener” bonus.

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 on our last show:

Did anyone impeach the Prince of Wails yet? How about an impeachment inquiry? Anything? Damn Donald Trump, and the system that let him slide for 60 or so years. (Foreign interference in 2016 did matter, btw.) David Waldman brings us a special “Not Letting Trump SlideKITM (Issued weekdays since 2015): Donald Trump lies. Donald said you’d “freeze action” the video of his “secret trade agreement.” You did, and now Trump says he didn’t anticipate that, as each sentence he utters must be a lie. Trump said he officially submitted Patrick Shanahan’s nomination for secretary of defense weeks ago. He lied on the “submitted”, “officially”, “nomination” and the “Patrick Shanahan” parts. Trump says that in his whole life he never called the FBIHe lied. Today, Trump lies about yesterday. Tomorrow he will lie about today. A team of two or three Democratic Presidents could be very cool, but Greg Dworkin suggests against this strategy going into 2020. For those needing to settle on just one, Elizabeth Warren is seen rising in the polls, and Joe Biden might be dropping. Is Joe Biden a return to the past? Is that such a bad thing? Iowans Seem To Like Warren And Buttigieg. Californians check “all of the above.” All Americans increasingly support transgender rights. Trump moves out of California. Not all Chinese are spies. But all Chinese spies seem to be connected to Mar-a-Lago. We do seem to be pleasing our Chinese overlords.
