Over the last 10 days, we have seen two television journalists have high-profile exits from their employers. First, Chris Cuomo, the brother of disgraced former New York governor Andrew Cuomo was fired by his employer, CNN, after an investigation revealed Chris had been working and leveraging his position to try and discredit those who attacked his brother Andrew’s actions as governor. After his firing, the New York Times reported that sexual harassment allegations are also being lodged against the younger Cuomo. The firing of Cuomo and the departure of Wallace serves as an appropriate yin and yang of television media and displays why the public lacks trust in media institutions. In this episode, I break down both departures and talk about what it means for the future of media in the United States and how we got to the point where a character is more representative of the industry than a respected journalist like Wallace.

For years various groups have either advocated for or opposed regulations on a variety of topics, none more controversial than abortion and firearms. Both stories have re-entered the public consciousness this week. The big question: do the regulations work? Listen to find out.

Last Friday a jury in Wisconsin found Kyle Rittenhouse, the young man charged with two murder charges stemming from the shooting at a protest, not guilty of those charges. Reaction was swift from across the ideological spectrum with conservatives hailing the ruling as a win for 2nd amendment rights and liberals lamenting the verdict was indicative of a judicial system that is systemically racist. In this episode, I dive into the case and provide broader context of other cases that prove the Rittenhouse verdict is not evidence of the way in which our system is broken, but rather the way it works. However, it is necessary to be introspective about our criminal justice system and I highlight three cases and trends for how we can reform our system to ensure more equitable verdicts and to minimize injustice.

Every day we get inundated with news from major media centers like New York and Washington, DC. In sports, it’s a common refrain that the world always is centered around the teams down the I-95 corridor from Boston to Baltimore, yet how does that impact our politics. In this episode, I spend some time highlighting stories from the west coast of the United States that would be major issues if they took place on the other side of the Mississippi River. From California towns declaring themselves sanctuary cities to Oregon parents turning violent at school board meetings, these stories mirror some of the same conversations that are taking place in the east coast but receive none of the coverage.

After eleven months of fits and starts, President Joe Biden finally has the crown jewel of his Build Back Better plan in place. The infrastructure bill was supposed to be a bipartisan slam dunk, but it wasn’t? In this first episode of Political Perspectives, I break down the nearly year-long saga behind the legislation, why it got delayed, who is to blame, and who deserves credit for getting it passed. As I will do in all future episodes, I give both sides of the argument and let you decide who comes out on top.

Political Perspectives is the same, great content you've known to love over the past year. I thought a name change was appropriate as my show grows, as the audience grows, and as my political content expands beyond DC politics. Plus, some new cover art. We hope you enjoy it!
Election Day has come and gone in the contentious Virginia gubernatorial race and to the surprise of many (not me), first-time candidate Republican Glenn Youngkin has likely defeated former governor Democrat Terry McAuliffe. While neither candidate has conceded, as of late Tuesday evening, Youngkin has a 96,000 vote lead with 93% of precincts reporting. Therefore, on this special election night podcast, I analyzed what happened and break down the county-level results that show Youngkin made considerable in-road in the Virginia suburbs like Loudon and Prince William counties while maintaining strong leads in traditionally conservative rural counties.

Election Day 2021 is upon us and if you’re not prepared, do not be alarmed. Most of the country is not voting, but a few states (and commonwealths) have off-year elections for governor and assembly races. Tonight, the eyes of the country will be fixated only a few miles from our nation’s capital as the Commonwealth of Virginia is set to decide its next governor. Tune in to listen to me break the race down and give you the inside scoop from the Beltway about how the race will break down and what you need to know.

Nearly three decades after their rise, we are seeing China both at the pinnacle of its powers with their recent display of military might as well as at their most precarious economic point as Xi Jinping attempts to pull China back from the brink. Today we look at how the United States should approach its dealings with China from an economic and military perspective in addition to a broader discussion about US foreign policy. It is time for us to look at a post-China world or to understand that in the next 20 years China may occupy the same space Russia currently does as a geopolitical foe who is attempting to destabilize our democracy but is no longer the nexus of the world’s economy. What does that mean for India, the United States, Africa, and the EU? Listen to find out!

Political posturing is not new and is, in fact, something most Americans have become accustomed to and typically expect from those holding public office. However, over the last year, we’ve seen two high-profile instances where political posturing has cost people money and prevented them from getting the services they require. This week I take a look at Arizona and Washington, DC to examine what happens when political posturing on the far right and the far left go wrong.  Let me know what you think by tweeting me @FromTheSwampPod! ___ A bipartisan, unbiased look at politics from a former political science professor.

This week, I spend some time talking about the recent Norwegian election results and how they fly in the face of the popular narrative that right-wing nationalism is overtaking Europe. I also discuss the upcoming German elections, which will see a new Chancellor named after Angela Merkel decided to step down after 16 years in power. Interestingly, the same movement to the left that we saw in Norway is taking place in Germany as Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats are flailing in the polls and it’s looking increasingly likely that Germany will be covered by a center-left coalition that will include the Green Party. Finally, I pontificate about yet another foreign policy blunder by the Biden Administration as the French (yes, the French) have withdrawn their ambassador to the United States and Australia after we spurned them on a naval military deal to instead sign an agreement with the United Kingdom.

For years America was a country that modeled democratic norms, not only in our institutions but our civil society. Over the last two decades, however, we have started to normalize extremism in thought, word, and deed. In the shadow of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America, Matthew takes a look at how and why we normalized these dangerous ideas and what we can do to overcome them. From vaccines to rhetoric to riots, both liberals and conservatives have normalized behavior that two decades ago would have been unthinkable. Now, they are broadcast every day and we simply shrug our shoulders. How can you fight the apathy of malaise? Matthew provides answers for how we can become the country we claim to be while ridding ourselves of the abnormal actions we’ve come to normalize.
