Podcast: Trump’s Very Fake News Bait And Switch – Weekly Open Call – 02.20.2017


It’s admittedly a bit difficult to figure out whether we’re in the sublime or the ridiculous part of the cycle at this moment, but one thing is certain: everyone is up in arms about what ultimately amounts to a worldview dispute.
