On today's BradCast, I'm your guest host for a fully-stuffed hour, with lots of news and deep dives into two important books.

A whirlwind review of the news up front:

  • the Brennan Center is out with a comprehensive list of voter access legislation across the country;
  • The California Dems passed on endorsing Dianne Feinstein;
  • CREW and PEER are going after Scott Pruitt's oddly secretive way of conducting EPA business;
  • CREW isn't here for TrumpCo's ridiculously opaque "accounting" for what it's done with foreign government spending at its hotels;
  • where Trump looked for the next FAA head (hint: Trump One's cockpit, 'cause if you can fly a plane you can run a federal agency!)...

... plus CPAC, the Trump Family Follies, and more.

Author David Neiwert breaks down the roots of America's radical right renaissance, as we talk about his new book Alt-America. David was on the spot when one of the "alt-right" started shooting.

Health journalist Mary Otto covered the young boy who died of a toothache in 2007. That set her on a journey to find out how deep dental care inequality goes in America. Our conversation is an excerpt from my hour-long interview with her for my show, In Deep with Angie Coiro.

Brad is back tomorrow! If you'd like to keep Desi's birthday happier even longer, you can show a little b-day love right here!
