2622 - The Lies and Legacy of Donald Rumsfeld & Unionizing Newsrooms w/ Digby, Lowell Peterson, and Andy Kindler

The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam hosts Heather "Digby" Parton to discuss the week's top stories, including the infrastructure negotiations, SCOTUS decisions to gut voter rights, and more. Then, WGA East Executive Director Lowell Peterson joins to discuss the unionization efforts at MSNBC Digital. Digby and Sam start off the show by looking back to the start of their careers in the wake of the 2000 election, 9/11, and the Iraq War. They reflect on the disturbing legacy Donald Rumsfeld leaves behind, focused on his role in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens, and how he and the Republican machine used 9/11 as the perfect jumping-off point for bombing the Middle East, before remembering somewhat more fondly the absurdity of conservative culture war around France’s pushback to the attacks. After looking deeper into how today’s Republican authoritarianism stems from the legacy of the Bush Administration, Lowell Peterson of the WGA joins to discuss the recent boom in media unionization. He and Sam look into the unionization effort at MSNBC Digital, and the irony of listening to a supposedly pro-union company explain why collective bargaining is good everywhere but under their roof. Sam also cover’s the development in yesterday’s SCOTUS decisions, and the dark shadow rising over the future of getting money out of politics and democracy as a whole. And in the Fun Half: Andy Kindler joins to provide an industry perspective on Ben Shapiro’s analysis of conservative values in film. They explore the fundamental importance of choice in the pro-life film, A Quiet Place, the view that we exist beyond our earthly bodies as expressed in Soul, and the general right-wing theme of overcoming our social context… even when that context is capitalism. Then, Sam covers the Exxon leak, exploring the disturbing behind-the-scenes of fossil fuel executives ensuring the US Senate stays in line with their interests, and a green Kyrsten Sinema offers up a perfect take on today’s issues facing… Kyrsten Sinema, plus, your IMs!

90. Andy Kindler: Actually, Everybody Loves Andy, Amirite?

Conversation For Adults

I discovered Andy Kindler as the other funny guy on “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Currently, he voices Mort the mortician on “Bob’s Burgers,” which I don’t fuck with, but I may now on principle. In this episode, we dig deep: why he's been in bed with me a lot lately, his OCD, his writing, traditional Jewish humor, my crush on Kristen Schaal, the omnipresent H. Jon Benjamin  (who I’ve loved since “Dr. Katz” and “Hey Monie!”, but enough already, with the this, the THAT, the ARBY’S and the jock-itch cream-- yeesh) and his fond memories of summer camps (mine, notsomuch). But he takes me on his journey, and we talk comedy, my adopted Jewish grandfather, writer Harvey Pekar, and the artistic merit behind everyone’s favorite sitcoms and films. What -- I should say more? It’s #conversationforadults.Resources:Twitter: @AndyKindlerInstagram: @andykindlersuperstarAlbum: “Hence the Humor”Website: Andy Kindler.comLet’s Talk:Website: conversationforadults.comInstagram: @conversationforadultsFacebook: facebook.com/conversationforadultswithjimiizraelTwitter: @convoforadultsConversation for Adults is a production of Crate Media

Stand-up comic and actor Andy Kindler returns

Kinda Sorta Maybe Like a Podcast

Andy Kindler has been a stand-up comic for over 30 years; toured endlessly all over North America; co-starred in hit TV shows like "Everybody Loves Raymond", "Bob's Burgers", and "Maron"; spent years doing regular field pieces on Letterman; and delivers the "State of the Industry" address at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal ever year. Yet somehow, he only released his debut comedy album *this year*. In a way, it's fitting that a comic known for deconstructing the craft would wait until a global pandemic to release "Hence the Humor" via digital download and streaming.Less than a week after delivering this year's JFL "State of the Industry" address via Zoom for the first time with the festival moving online due to COVID-19, our own Andrew Lizotte joined Kindler on Zoom for a long conversation covering the 7 year process putting out the new album, what goes into making the address at JFL every year (and what was different about this year), Kindler's thoughts on "cancel culture", and a deep dive into each other's experiences with therapy, medication, and mental health.
