How do we reclaim an independent press so we can actually learn what our candidates will do and our elected officials are doing? By only talking about horse-races and scandals, the press is letting the GOP get away with murder, while keeping people ignorant about Democratic Party solutions to our problems.


David Brock from Media Matters for America joins Thom to discuss why our media is broken, and why Billionaire owned media is working as a propaganda arm of the oligarchs-- threatening our very democracy.


Plus- given the recent protests and internal instability in Iran, has Trump's policy there brought us closer to a nightmare scenario, what guest Jamal Abdhi calls a 'combustible moment'?

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
