On today's BradCast, guest hosted by Angie Coiro, a roundup of Trump-generated violence around the country; a Holocaust scholar suspended from high school teaching for daring to mention the obvious; the Democratic Coalition Against Trump's compendium of Trump/Putin connections; and finally: futurist Alex Steffen says it's not "game over" for the climate.
Angie's first guest is Scott Dworkin from The Democratic Coalition Against Trump. DCAT is giving the FBI a little help, since it's having so much trouble finding connections between Donald Trump, his team, his family, and Vladimir Putin. The kicker: all of this stuff is public record.
Also today: Angie covers the story of a Holocaust scholar who tried to show high schoolers the parallels between the rise of Hitler and the rise of Trump. One parent complained; boom, he's suspended. There's a petition to get him back in the classroom.
Finally, futurist Alex Steffen, founder of The Heroic Future makes a pitch for the tech world to unify against the evil Trump is sure to wreak. And he explains why this is no time to shrug your shoulders and declare the battle for the planet lost.

Angie Coiro rocks.
Great sub to have.
But she wass a tad easier on Monday's guest
than perhaps I would have been.
Maybe it's just me, but I found Scott Dworkin too over-the-top New Millemium McCarthy-ite for my taste. And, gasp...did I smell a faint odor of...neocon?
(I apologize for the crude language in this post.)
IMO, I'm hearing too much of this kind of thing lately from too many Democrats and so-called "Liberals". The sense of hurt from losing the election (or gettying it stlen away), feeds this sentiment, understandibly.
Being born in the 50s, I well remember the old days of calling people (usually Democrats & Liberals) "commie" or "too soft on the Ruskies(USSR)." etc etc
Pardon me if I still resent this very similar, IMO, political attack-angle regarding Russia and Putin.
I thought it was bs then,
and I still think it so.
And on a related issue ...
If they ever do come up with solid, verifiable evidence that it was indeed Russia who hacked Podesta's emails, then I will condemn those dang Ruskies as much as anyone, as they should be.
Unfortunately, no such evidence has come out thus far ---- Only innuendo and accusations.
Pardon me again if I am reminded of Aluminum tubes and Yellowcake from Niger.
