No full show this week! That’s right, we are on vacation! However, I (Jon) had to share some thoughts on the Daily Beast article by Nico Hines that caused quite a stir last week. The article was finally removed from the website the evening it was posted. I enjoyed this article in Salon by Mary Elizabeth Williams. Check it out.
On this week’s episode, Nan, Faith and Jon are joined by special guest and West Fund co-founder Adriano. Topics include last week’s Republican National Convention, Harassment on Twitter, Commonplace Racism, Abortion Access in Texas, Ted Cruz, Texan Individualism, and Dog Whistle Politics.
