Daily Kos Radio is LIVE at 9 AM ET!

Another wild week draws to a “close.” Of course, there’s never any respite from Trump. It’s all weekend to him.

I sincerely hope those of you who are in Philadelphia were too busy and personally engaged to have seen the Bagel Boss Meet-Up in the Rose Garden. But more likely, you were passing your phones around showing everyone the video. Sad!

Many, many stories to catch up on, of course. And probably 16 hours or so of examination of wherever the hell we are now on the census. Though the short answer, as always, is: who knows? It depends on whether or not LOL YOLO Nothing Matters, or LOL YOLO Really, Really Nothing Matters.

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:

Netroots Nation! Sounds like fun, but you know somebody has to hold down the fort, or in this case KITM World Headquarters. So in between the caucuses, breakouts, keynotes, and mindfulness moments, pop in your earbuds to catch up with David Waldman and Greg Dworkin on the hot topics you know your friends will want to talk about: There’s Jeffrey Epstein, in the basement of Pedophile Island. The more people know, the more questions come up. For instance, Epstein seems to have a lot of money and power, but only one client, Les Wexner. Epstein never once checked in with city cops in the eight-plus years since a Manhattan judge ordered him to do so every 90 days. Alexander Acosta’s press conference also raised questions. Acosta plans to slash funds for sex trafficking victims. You’d think the RNC would have answers to all of the pedophile/rape/abuse/sex trafficking questions by now. Donald Trump shoots the constitution on 5th avenue today, and sure, there are questionsTrump and Republicans quit caring about answering questions in October of 2016. Actually, Putin and Republicans quit caring about answering questions even earlier. Oh, look—there’s Donald attacking another woman. Maybe an election would help. “Electability” is the new “I’m not racist/sexist, but…” of 2020. Nevertheless, Harris and Warren join Joe Biden in the top tier of the Democratic contenders. The race is closest among likeliest voters… but Joe is still winning.
