We've Got Issues

This week, Elizabeth Preza and Joshua Holland kick off the show with a look at the Covid relief bill that's stalled in Congress amid Republican infighting and Trump's bonkers interview with Jonathan Swan. Then we're joined by Salon columnist Amanda Marcotte to talk about why conservatives keep falling for obvious grifts and why the Alex Jonesification of the GOP will almost certainly result in scattered terror attacks if Trump loses in November.

The Lone Star Plate

Today I am joined by Amanda Marcotte, a Texas-born writer who covers politics, feminism and culture for The Salon. A few days ago she wrote an excellent article on the Black Lives Matter movement.

In 2018 Amanda published a book called ‘Troll Nation’, and I wanted to know how the writing process went for her.  As always, we chat about Texas and food. We discuss how it was to grow up in Texas, and racial prejudice that we witnessed, and I’m also surprised to learn how much food Amanda grows in her garden! “The best way is to be a noob.
