12/20 The Decade In Politics w/ Digby & Film Guy Matthew Weiss

December 20, 2019

Digby (Heather Parton) (@digby56) and Film Guy Matthew Weiss (@langdonboom) join us on the last show of the decade.

On today’s show: Amy Klobuchar and Buttigieg spar over experience and winning statewide races.

Heather ‘Digby’ Parton (@digby56) joins us to wrap up the decade in politics. Occupy Wall Street and the rise of the left. The rise of the millennial generation and how the political conversation has shifted. The potential effects of impeachment. Digby’s take on the debates.

Film Guy Matthew Weiss (@langdonboom) joins us to talk (spoiler alert!) film. ‘Black Bear,’ the movie Matthew edited, is headed to Sundance! Matthew and crew discuss the festival circuit, his class for seniors, and what movies we should watch over break, including: Rodrigo Garcia’s “Nine Lives” and Miranda July’s “Me and You and Everyone We Know.”

Eric July, libertarian, has had it with weak libertarians debating roads. Giuliani brags about surviving hits by the mafia, FARC, “Islamic terrorists.” Ben Shapiro values fetuses more than women. The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles advocates theocratic fascism to own the libs. Warren and Buttigieg have at it over closed door fundraising. Bernie owns up to Afghan vote, gives props to Barbara Lee. Bernie says he has zero billionaire donors, negs Buttigieg’s donors compared to Biden. Bernie asked about lack of diversity on stage, talks about environmental justice for POC. Van Jones asks Warren if her criticism of Pete’s wine cave is elitist.
