3/24 Trump Still Sweating It Out; TikTok As A Surrogate For Fighting China w/ Andy Kindler

March 24, 2023

It’s an All Calls Casual Friday! Sam is back from sunny Florida after his appearance on the PBD Podcast. Him and Emma are then joined by comedian Andy Kindler, host of the Thought Spiral podcast! First, they run through updates on a Jan 6 insurrectionist launching a defamation case against Fox for painting him as a Federal infiltrator, the US’ airstrikes in Syria, the Donald Trump Grand Jury going on break, Montana youth suing their state for fossil fuel abuses, the end of the LA school strike, and 2022’s sharp uptick in book bans, before diving into Donald Trump’s recent Truth social breakdown. John from Indiana and Bee from Queens call in to discuss members of the left media laundering transphobic talking points (however innocently they may be doing so), Jay from Atlanta talks about TikTok’s trial, and Matt from Grand Rapids reflects on a Tucker Carlson segment from last night. Andy Kindler then joins as he and Sam reflect on the iconifying of various conservative figures during the US’ propaganda push at the start of the Iraq war, including the production of multiple action figures, before parsing through Matt Walsh’s defense of being a horrible husband (“its a JOKE” ). Louisa from Massachusetts dives into the legislative repression of medical procedures, before Sam walks through his recent appearance on the Patrick Bet-David (BPD) Podcast, from the social security debate to jailing rich people. Michael from Miami tackles Florida’s changing electorate and Yosef from Israel reflects on Bibi’s most recent authoritarian action, plus, your calls and IMs!
