TPPP Episode 63 : Alix Goes South

Welcome back to The Triple Po! I have returned from The Native American Slaughter Day break with another spectacular episode. On the pre-ramble, I talk about the travesty that is the #TaxScamBill. It is probably one of the most blatant giveaways to the the wealthy and corporations in American history, and it was passed with no debate and not even completely written when it was passed. It still requires reconciliation with the House to hammer out the final bill, and Democrats may be able to soften the blow a tad, but for the most part the middle class and poor of this country are getting royally screwed. So if you voted for Republican, hey, fuck you!

On the palaver, I speak worth activist, blogger, speaker, and Zen master Alix Jules. We talk about the unique challenges the South faces in implementing change in both politics and social justice. As a New York transplant to Texas, he has an insight into the unique challenges our region faces. We also discuss how to get people who are in other parts of country to understand our plight here. Ultimately, you just have to come and visit! You’ll uh then, trust me. It was a very enlightening talk with an awesome guy. I think y’all will thoroughly enjoy it.

TPPP Episode 21 : Naked Politics 

Happy New Year, and welcome to another episode of The Podunk Polymath Podcast! This week on the pre-ramble I talk briefly about the impending inauguration of Donald Trump and the sense of impending doom I feel, as well as the need for us to fight against the Trump agenda. I also talk about the terrorist attack on a nightclub in Istanbul, and the facts that are currently known about this tragedy.

On the palaver I this week I speak with the host of ‘Naked Mormonism’, Bryce Blankenagel. We talk briefly about his podcast, but then we delve into a topic he stays away from on his show : Politics. We talk about the election of Donald Trump and the implications of his pending administration, as well as the need for people with common goals to come together to try to make this country better. Bryce and I didn’t agree on everything, but I think it was a respectful and fruitful conversation. I think y’all will enjoy it.
