July 17, 2020

Sam recaps the week’s biggest stories with Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of The Benjamin Dixon Show; and then Matthew Film Guy (@langdonboom) joins the program to discuss summer movie recommendations for this summer without blockbusters.

On today’s show: Trump calls Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler “a little weak.” Trump touts the strength of shower heads and other appliances under his administration.

Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon), host of The Benjamin Dixon Show, joins Sam to discuss the week’s top stories. GA Governor Brian Kemp sues Atlanta mayor over city’s mask mandate. Shadowy feds deployed to Portland, DHS uses violent graffiti as excuse. Bari Weiss’ whiny hypocrisy and the trouble with “cancel culture” discourse.

Matthew Film Guy (@langdonboom) stops by to update us on his latest projects and recommend some movies: Tropical Malady (2004), a Thai romantic psycho-drama art film; Argentine period drama Zama (2017); neo-Western heist movie Hell Or High Water (2016) and classic graffiti/hip-hop film Wild Style (1983).

On the fun half: Sam engages in free exchange of ideas with the IDW’s Eric Weinstein. A teacher shares his dilemma about schools reopening. Jake Tapper says Cuomo’s victory lap is completely unwarranted, lays out criticism against the governor. Seb Gorka tells caller that Mike Flynn did not take pledge to Qanon, says Q is a cult. Rudy Giuliani says BLM is a Marxist Soros plan to give black Americans a lifetime salary and confiscated property. Pelosi wishes the country still had previous Republican presidents she liked. Plus, your calls and IMs!
