Recorded the night before Super Tuesday III, this is the last time we talk about Trump. I hope to god. Watch for my piece in Salon on the working class community that created the Trump phenomenon. We also jibber-jab about the CESLetter, a critique of Mormonism by an insider.
One thing about Donald Trump is that he has brought the level of political discourse to a place that even I can understand it.
That makes sense to me.
In this week’s podcast, Rick,RobRoy and myself have a wide ranging conversation on real estate, Donald Trump and the continued movement of all political discourse to the kind of discourse I remember having when I was a dishwasher at the Owl Club. We also talk over my personal experience as a Bernie Sanders delegate at my local caucus.
On this week’s Podcast, Edwin, Rick and RobRoy discuss their predictions about the Iowa caucus. We also mock Sean Anderson, the last douche bag standing in Oregon. There is also a fun digression about large men in Speedos.
Also, there’s a new piece up on my blog, talking about my personal experience with outrageous prescription drug prices. It really is a crime.
The last two podcasts hosted on Armchair Blasphemy have been extra long and filled with profanity.
The first one: Living in a work-a-day world goes in depth on our collective work malaise.
The second one: Posted today, this podcast covers the massive news last week about gay marriage, Bristol Palin and the Confederate flag.
We’re up to our fifteenth podcast. As we do them, I think they get more relevant. Join us and don’t forget to subscribe!
I enjoyed the heck out of the latest podcast:
Check out podcast 13 on camping, guns and Amway scams.
Very shortly, I’ll have a piece up on Salon that covers some of the Amway scam. Suffice to day, we have become a nation of people preying on each other. Instead of working, saving or building stuff, we seem intent on selling each other cheap, Chinese shit no one wants or needs. But hey, let’s have fun anyway!
This week’s podcast was particularly fun, with Edwin, Rick and RobRoy sitting down to talk the presidential contest and then discussing the Josh Dugger scandal. For a preview of the issue with the Dugger’s check out this piece in Slate and then listen:
There is a lot of interesting stuff going in with religion, hypocrisy and social issues in America– check out my latest on Salon for a taste. You can be sure we’ll be chatting up these issues again soon.
The Pew Religious Landscape Study came out last week showing big gains for atheists, agnostics and so-called “nones,” those who profess no religious faith. The Armchair Blasphemy team sat down to discuss their respective beliefs: CLICK HERE for Podcast 11.
On a side note: I wrote a piece for Salon spiking the football just a little about the study. I just couldn’t help myself. At any rate, watch for more discussion on this blog about America’s dramatic culture shift. There are a great many implications for an ever-more-secular America.
