Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains the importance of the fight against the TPP. President Obama goes on the attack against progressives for opposing TPP. Why anti corporate trade politics works in the Midwest. Sherrod Brown calls out the Obama Administration for its awful stance on trade and dropping the ball on the vital progressive agenda. Barack Obama’s extreme flip flop on corporate trade deals and what you need to do to block Fast Track and TPP. Why The Koch Brothers want Scott Walker. Also why Jeb Bush is in real trouble in his presidential bid.

Isabel Gillies gives Sam exercise and fashion advice. Also why do people dress like slobs when they go to the theatre or on a plane. Coyotes invade New York City. Figuring out the Guardian Angels. Isabel tells us to watch the movie Fed Up. Also will Matt go sugar free.
