1/3 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Marc Maron

January 3, 2014

Political maestro Cliff Schecter, explains why raising the minimum wage is finally being used by Democrats to drive a wedge with Republicans, why the economy in the midwest is slowing down, New York’s new Mayor Bill de Blasio, has the tide turned on Social Security? David Brook’s writes an incredibly stupid pot column, the New York Times calls for clemency for Edward Snowden and America’s two tier justice system.

Marc Maron did not like Sam pointing out his connection to Hollywood, why Sam still isn’t on Marc’s show, why Marc never mentions Sam in public appearances, is Maron becoming Republican? And Marc suggested Francis Ha.
