(Katie Halper) We talk to Jonathan Clarke, an attorney who filed the law suit against New York Board of Elections over voter purges about what the hell happened, what he hopes to achieve and if it could effect the presidential race. We ask Hillary Clinton to apologize for the remarks of one of her surrogate (we think this may be a recurring segment, unfortunately)and talk about why Jonathan may be the Irish-American Bernie Sanders (my words, not his.) Gabe offers a list of women role models. And finally, Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland)talks to us live from outside of the IFC movie theater where his latest film “How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change.“
In this amazing episode we go over the tone of the Clinton’s, and how they described Jesse Jackson and played with the truth in 2008. We play a mashup of Clinton’s campaign in 2008 and today and wonder why she was so open to debating in 2008 but not in 2015. Then we talk to Bob Scheer, who interviewed Bill Clinton for the LA Times when bubba was governor of Arkansas and interviewed Jimmy Carter for Playboy! Bob tells us about why he thinks Hillary Clinton has no shame, the difference between Trump and Sanders and Goldwater and McGovern.
This month’s show features guests who shatter the myth of the Bernie Bro, the alleged white male millennials, living in their parents’ basements, harassing women online and supporting Bernie Sanders. Leslie Lee, a Black writer and teacher was so frustrated with the misrepresentation of Sanders fans and the erasure of his supporters of color, he created the spot on and very funny #BernieMadeMeWhite hashtag, which went viral. Erika Andiola is a dreamer, organizer and she happens to be a National Press Secretary for Bernie Sanders Campaign for President. Jacob Bridge, a VeteranForBernie and conscientious objector who has organized around LGBT rights, is also far from a Bernie Bro.
