Trump Leaks Like His Russian Hookers

Donald Trump leaks classified information to the Russians. Howie Klein from Down with Tyranny fills us in. How corrupt is Congress? On Monday, Politico released the results of its three-month study of senators and house members who continue to play the stock market, trading on what some might call inside information despite passage of a law five years ago specifically banning such activity. We talk with the author of that study Politico’s Maggie Severns. The reason radio and television stink is because the justice department wont enforce antitrust legislation and so television and radio remains in the rapacious hands of just a few corporations who care more about money than they do our democracy. Trump’s FCC is expected to allow media conglomerates to just get bigger, case in point– the conservative television group Sinclair broadcasting announced plans to buy Tribune’s television stations. David Dayen from The Nation and The Intercept joins us to talk about why the growth of large media giants is good for republicans but bad for what’s left of America’s critical thinking. Graham Ellwood is a hysterical comedian who hosts Comedy Film Nerds. His new documentary about podcasting has just been released. It’s called Ear Buds: The Podcasting Documentary. And then we discuss parenting, and mating with animal behaviorist dr. Dr. Jennifer Verdolin whose new book Raised by Animals is just out this month. We talk about that and her previous book Wild Connection: What Animal Courtship and Mating Tell Us About Human Relationships which tackles the wild world of romance. Here’s a hint, if you want to attract a mate, don’t use so much perfume and stop showering. Also we learn that the birth control pill may be leading women into picking the wrong mate.
