Well, we got bogged down in the Kavanaugh story and theories about Russian hacking and turning old models of voter turnout upside-down yesterday, and that leaves us with a lot to catch up on.
Will we do it? Or will we hyper-focus on some curious aspect of one of the many stories waiting in the wings? Anything’s possible! Trump could have gotten a “beautiful letter” from the Martians by showtime, for all we know!

PODCAST LISTENERS: There’s a new podcast platform in town, and the big news is: this one pays! RadioPublic pays podcast producers at $20 CPM for listens on their native app (available for iPhones & Androids), financed by pre- and post-roll ads they insert. Not a bad way to support the show, with somebody else’s money!
So if you’re a podcast listener, please consider downloading the RadioPublic app on your Android or iOS phone. Yes, you can still download directly from their site, or listen to the player embedded here at Daily Kos. But it’s listens in their app that count toward payment. And get this: listen to just three episodes in their app, and we earn a one-time, $1 “loyal listener” bonus.
Nothing changes on our end. It’s still Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, plus also, me. And you! As always, we still want your voice on the air with us. Sit down with your smart phone or other electronic recording device and send us your stories and commentary to share with the audience. There’s no easier way to try your hand at podcasting, without all the hassle!
Of course there’s no substitute for having your support via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash. (And hey, if you want a cool trick for donating sorta-kinda cost free, get their cash.me app and use this share code to get $5 in your account (plus $5 in mine) when you send your first $5 (to anyone)!
For now, how about one on the house? Here’s what we did on our last new show:
A new week, a new day, and KITM and David Waldman and Greg Dworkin return. Unfortunately, a lot of 2016 and 2018 followed them in: Brett Kavanaugh returns to the news. Actually, more witnesses are finally being heard. The New York Times sees some harmless penile face-thrusting. Donald Trump sees the New York Times’ penis. The FBI help keep the real dick out of sight. Should Democrats be concerned by a rhetoric gap? On a related note, life will be cursed and you will be blamed for it all if you don’t read this paywalled article. Is Trump launching a generation of Democrats into the future? Is Donald Democrats’ biggest inspiration right now? For that matter, is Joe Biden dooming Democrats’ future or is he the best representative of Democrats’ present? Will this election be decided, not by swaying independents, but by mining more partisans? John Bolton has moved on to better things, so Trump handed over the military to Mohammed bin Salman. Vladimir Putin called dibs, though. Donald Trump wouldn’t be Russia’s only asset in the US.
