I have a feeling this is going to be a whole week of “At least it’s Friday” jokes.

Listen right here at 9:00 AM ET!

Podcasts! They’re hip! They’re hot! Everyone’s got one! But Daily Kos has had one since slightly after that point at which you would have been able to say that we had one before it was cool. Only we do ours over a live stream, every weekday morning from 9-11 ET. So the news is as fresh as the morning dew! Delivered and interpreted for you by David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, and even Armando.

We think you’ll like it so much, you’ll even help support its continued production, with monthly donations via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash.

Not ready to face the world that early? Unsure whether you’re ready to donate your hard-earned cash? We’ve also got these handy-dandy record-o-matical things, like the one below, featuring our most recent LIVE show! At Daily Kos, it’s always free to try before you buy! (I think! Usually, anyway!)

The giant planet scheduled to hit Earth last Saturday had to postpone until next month. We didn’t even have a little planet hit us this weekend. So, David Waldman and KITM are back to address the relatively smaller disasters striking everyone. It is however, horrible in Puerto Rico. Greg Dworkin rounds up the latest on the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, Graham-Cassidy, and the Anti-flag Burning Amendment Athlete Protest controversy. The Gop bill is swirling pretty low, but might require another couple of flushes this week. It would be probably worse for Republicans if it passed, but then again if it passed it would be worse for everybody…. Therefore, Single Payer maybe? As some Democrats determine who they’ll vote for in 2016, we all remain united on the big stuff. Barack Obama tried to give Mark Zuckerberg a wake-up call over fake news. Now we wake up to Jared Kushner using private email to conduct White House business, a Trump nominee committing voter fraud, and appointees to the Agriculture Department including a long-haul truck driver, a country club cabana attendant and the owner of a scented-candle company. Tom Price-tag wakes up and stops with the private jets. Milo Yiannopoulos trolls for Free Speech Week, trolls after it, and will continue to troll. Armando calls our attention to Puerto Ricohot, isolated, running out of supplies, and near desperationbut without FEMA, difficult to access by national news crews, therefore too low in television ratings to interest Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton has ideas on how to fix things, which will probably slow Donald up also. The US government needs to fix this before anyone else can.
