Your host goes solo in an episode recorded about two days before the Midterms. He talks about himself a little bit, but it's mostly to share several great stories, columns, and radio or podcast work by people who are focused on the ways that media and politics interact in America under Trump. Listen and visit the website for a list of links to that work, along with a suggestion for music when you want to escape politics.
