On Inauguration Day we focus on eliminating the noise and keying in on who stands to benefit the most from Donald Trump’s rise to power. We remind listeners that as an agent of chaos, Trump will distract us while our treasury is looted and our planet is poisoned by incompetent errand boys working for the richest one percent.

“What I love about ‘The David Feldman Show’ is I’m listening to a middle-aged guy getting radicalized, but he still can’t stop telling dick jokes with his comic friends from the ’80s.” – Michael Brooks, The Michael Brooks Show
“A podcast for folks who believe that strong political convictions and a sense of humor do not have to be mutually exclusive.” – Nathan Rabin, The AV Club
“The inherent danger of listening in public is that you need to figure out in advance what you’re going to say when someone asks, ‘What are you laughing at?’” – Marc Hershon, Huffington Post
