  • 55 - Bleach blonde butch body - American politics goes full Jerry Springer

    American legislators in the House are hurling personal insults at each other - meanwhile Biden and Trump have committed to debate each other on TV and Trump is using an attack ad - a riff off of a Tom Petty song- to accuse Biden of “free falling“.

    What has happened to rational discourse in America?

  • 54 - "He should go to jail!" Michael Cohen tells Donald Trump's trial

    If the adult porn director Stormy Daniels was the star witness of the Trump trial last week, this week it got even hotter. Trump's former fixer, friend and lawyer took the stand.

    Except now, Michael Cohen is no friend of Trump. What's more, he's a convicted felon, a liar and a perjurer. Will his presence as a key witness help or hinder the prosecution?And does it matter that he's told a jury he'd like to see Trump jailed?

    Later, why are 21 foreign born sailors still stuck on the cargo ship that collapsed the Baltimore bridge?

  • 53 - Stormy Daniels takes the stand against Donald Trump

    In a surprise move, the sex worker and pornstar Stormy Daniels appeared as a witness yesterday in the trial of Donald Trump to reveal details of the night they spent together in a Nevada hotel room.

    The details were specific, and to some ears rather lurid - and included a description of her beating him on the backside with a rolled up magazine. None of this is illegal - but what might be is the money she alleges he paid her to hush it up - money from his campaign funds.

    Later, we revisit dog murderer-in-chief Kristi Noem's fortunes as a potential VP pick. And ask what happened overnight in Indiana.

  • 52 - Should a president be able to "assassinate" his political opponents?

    Is Trump above the law and should he have immunity from a case involving his actions around the January 6th insurrection?

    That's what the Supreme Court has spent the last week arguing about. Amazingly, they might be making a case for why he checks notes... IS immune.

    We hear from The New York Times Supreme Court supremo Adam Liptak.

    Later is Joe Biden wise to joke about his age at the White House Correspondents Dinner?

    And why did Trump's potential vice president pick shoot dead her pet puppy - and then boast about it?

  • 51 - Trump on trial... and should America arm its teachers?

    Later in the show...Why are teachers now being given guns in Tennessee schools?

    We start this episode with the astonishing testimony of former Trump ally David Pecker - who ran the National Enquirer tabloids - and freuquently bought up the embarassing stories about Trump to save him face when he was running for president in 2016.

    Was this against the law? Does it hurt Trump's defence?

    And why does Trump keep slagging off his critics on social media when he's been gagged ?

    Later what's actually happening on the Columbia campus protests?
