June 12, 2015

Sam calls Nancy Pelosi to tell her we want a no vote on TAA and Fast Track authority.

Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains the importance of the fight on Trade and why its the key legislative fight of our time. Why we need to kill the Trade Assistance Authority. The internal politics of the Democratic Party and killing awful trade deals. The new political energy on the left. Why President Obama’s establishment worship explains his support for corporate trade. Is the activist behind the Obama “ObamaTrade” website a progressive? President Obama’s last minute push for trade and why Jeb Bush isn’t going anywhere.

Film Guy Matthew Weiss talks about his teaching and production work. The joys of cutting Sam out of the action. How Matthew decides what to sell on eBay. What Matthew has been watching. Matthew tells us to watch the The Year of the Sex Olympics, the 1960s BBC television film that predicted the Reality TV era.
