What Happened to the Wall? - Rebroadcast

Sept. 22nd, 2016

     Politicians rarely come out and state they’re changing their mind on an issue. If you’re a presidential candidate you usually have your surrogates take the message out to the press and the public. In recent weeks we’ve been hearing a lot from Trump campaign surrogates about a change in policy on immigration. What exactly are the changes and is it possible that there’s more danger in Trump backpedaling at this point than in sticking with his original positions? We discuss in today’s episode.


The Collapse of American Journalism

Sept. 15th, 2016

     Walter Cronkite, perhaps the most revered news anchor the country has ever had, once said that the job of a journalist is to hold up a mirror to society. Have journalists today gone too far in blurring the line between facts and opinions? In today’s episode we discuss recent examples of news outlets becoming part of the stories instead of just “holding up the mirror” and reporting on them.

Get Sick? Die Quickly

Sept. 1st, 2016

     Health care in the US is a $3 trillion a year business. The US spends more on health care per person than any other developed nation in the world. One of the biggest problems with healthcare in the US is the high price of medication and treatment which drug companies often hike up without warning or justification. In this episode we detail the astronomical price increases of the Epipen and discuss whether we are doing things in the best way in this country.


Trump, Clinton and the Electoral College

Aug. 25th, 2016

     The Founding Fathers established the Electoral College to create a buffer between the general public and the choice for President. The main strategy for a presidential campaign is not to get the most votes but the most Electoral College votes. That results in campaigns targeting states with the most Electoral College votes instead of a broad strategy that pursues the most votes. Is this what the Founders had in mind?

How does the Electoral College work and does it still serve democracy in the best way? We discuss in today’s episode.


Economic Patriotism

Aug. 18th, 2016

     Currency manipulation has been a big problem between China and the rest of the world for a couple of decades. It’s no secret why China does it, but is there a bigger question to be raised in terms of China’s economic strategy as well as our own?

In this episode we answer the questions, what is currency manipulation, and how does fit in with China’s overall global economic strategy?


America, the Stupid Country

Aug. 11th, 2016

     Donald Trump has had about as bad a two weeks as a politician can possibly have. And yet he is still very much in this race. We discuss why that may be a worrisome sign for Democrats. We also discuss why some of Donald Trump’s positions may be resonating more than many believe and why his biggest mistake may have been not running as a Democrat.
