From the legacy of the Trump presidency to the spectre of a Trump-Biden rematch, our conversation traverses a vast political terrain. We delve into the changing dynamics of union votes, the pervasive influence of lobbyists and the dark shadow of money in politics. The repercussions of Trump’s judicial appointments and the spiralling national debt, are some of the high stakes topics we grapple with. We also contemplate how the two main political parties can truly champion the cause of the middle class and society's less privileged.
But, hold onto your seats because the ride gets even bumpier as we lay bare the recent disturbing events that have shaken the foundation of US politics. We pick apart the multiple legal troubles Trump is currently embroiled in, including the shocking attempted siege of the US Capitol. Discover how the Presidential Records Act could potentially lead to espionage charges against Trump. Lastly, we reflect on our work on the Common Bridge, a platform for productive, non-partisan dialogue, and our ongoing commitment to involving our listeners in these compelling, timely discussions.
