No, we are not playing Jeopardy! this week. 聽In this episode, I discuss the surprisingly little-discussed Senate report on Trump campaign discussions with Russia, a controversy with Goodyear, and the hidden issue with Trump's payroll tax holiday. 聽I also get into the whole QAnon thing and where it came from and my own "conspiracy theory" as to who is actually behind it. 聽Finally, I talk about Memphis's reign in week 2 of Big Brother. --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-moderate-podcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-moderate-podcast/support

Episode 86 - Who's the VP?

2020-08-0901:05:10

My dad joins me to talk about some of the history and ramifications of getting a lack of a majority in the electoral college. 聽We also speculate on who Joe Biden's VP candidate will be (which we thought we would have a decision on by now), and we talk about this week's return of Big Brother! --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-moderate-podcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-moderate-podcast/support
This week, we dive into some early numbers on the 2020 election, but as the 2016 election would remind us, it is way too soon to make any predictions on where this will go, especially given how close the swing states are. 聽And since it is almost a guarantee Trump will dispute the results if he loses, we talk about the closest election in our nation's history...and I'm not talking about Bush v. Gore.

I don't know what it is, but people have all of these (stupid) reasons why they don't want to wear a mask. 聽Is it because they simply don't like to be told what to do? 聽Is it because they only care about themselves and "aren't afraid of the virus"? Is it because of some vast left wing conspiracy? 聽Who knows! 聽But we talk about it all on today's program. Also, we talk about President Trump's speech at Mt. Rushmore and, as a special treat, my kids come on to talk about their Zoom learning experience and how they see the next school year going. --- This episode is sponsored by 路 Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-moderate-podcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-moderate-podcast/support
