This is a great conversation, but, Chris, you need to apply it to yourself. Quit fawning over Bernie. He is an unreconstructed 60's leftist powered by misogyny and white identity politics.

Kathleen Fuller Having Bernie on once in awhile doesn't = fawning over him.

episode #34: the guest says that trying to explain to the right that there is such a thing as 'facts' is like trying to explain a rainbow to a colorblind person, because they could not imagine that something outside their own paradigm could, in fact, be the correct way of viewing the world we live in. (i am paraphrasing him here.) for me the analogy fails, because as a colorblind person myself, i know that the beautiful rainbow i see is different from the one most everyone else sees- i think i enjoy it even more for knowing that my world view, as such, is unique to me, BUT i also accept that my view of the rainbow is an anomaly- is 'incorrect' in the context of science and social consensus. the weird right we have now would require an anaolgy more like the handful of us colorblind folks out here forcing our 'view' of the world on everyone else- arguing with people who have intact rods and cones about what color everything is 😉.

disagree with Robin that trump is weakening conservatism by not building upon conservative institutions like the heritage foundation or the Christian right. his (mcconnell's) institutional legacy will be in conservative entrenchment of the judicial system.

Could you revisit this subject post Khashoggi assassination? I would be very interested, as I'm sure others would be, in what Dexter would have to say about this.

Oh my! This was so amazing to get this clear and humble insight into both of you. May I say, I love you both. Oh now, stop that! Agape love! I'm addicted to your shows and podcasts and feel very unsettled if I have to miss even a segment (especially Rachel's Segment A)! You feed off of each other so well. Once the numbers are run and the EPs (you, plural?) are convinced that having you together on a podcast is Worth It, I'll be advocating for an hour every 4-6 weeks. I know that's a lot, but this is your back story and serves a very different function. If I knew how to be more glowing, I would be. Nicely done.

Loved it! What a gift to be able to get a glimpse into Rachel the person as apposed to Rachel the News personality. What a beautiful soul she has. Both personas are very special. Peace and Blessings!!

I listen faithfully to your pod ast,"Why is this happening " and Rachel 's "Bagman " , but my favorite is your conversation and mutual confessions with Rachel. I feel as if I know you both better and Rachel's opening up about her spiritual side moved me deeply. I will listen to her, looking for signs of her mystical side. She was right, you are a marvelous interviewer who can get anyone to expose their deepest feelings.
