We know him from so many movies, his unapologetically honest podcast IAmRapaport, his character on Netflix’s hit series Atypical, or as a long-time valuable/irreplaceable member of the Howard Stern show family. But, to this journalist, and many political junkies, Rapoport reached new heights during the last year of the Trump Administration. He became a trusted news source. A voice of reason. A tell-it-like-it-is political commentat...

Corey “The Buttercream Dream” Forrester is a comedian hailing from Chickamauga, GA — more specifically, this means Corey is a liberal stand-up comic, an internet sensation, and a frustrated constituent living in Majorie Taylor Greene’s 14th congressional district in Georgia. This is the perfect storm to achieve overnight success (after a decade of being a comedian) for the co-author of The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin' Di...

How does a former Tea Party member — very vocal Trump supporter and a self-proclaimed “MAGA” activist — switch to become a devoted Biden/Harris supporter and proud “Liberal Democrat”?

In this episode, things changed quickly. We were supposed to figure out why the heck Chicago radio host wrote a “crude” tweet that went viral.
