Talking Politics with a "Gay Southern Liberal Techie"Listen to this episode from Adrogo Academy on Spotify. In today's show I spend some time talking with Robert Thompson, a self proclaimed "gay southern liberal techie, who help turn Georgia blue." We talked a lot of politics, but not just policies, also trying to better understand the thinking behind Robert's beliefs, why he is so confident in them, and how he tries to avoid falling into the common "traps" of the mind and maintain a objective/logical mindset. I am not sure the walls fully came down in this discussion, but I do think Robert and I had a really good discussion and it helped me to better understand his thinking a bit better.
Warning: Republican Armies of Fembots are Everywhere!Listen to this episode from Got Damn Liberals! on Spotify. Kellen reached out to me from Mount Pleasant which I later learned is in rural Iowa. He is the co-host of the progressive podcast Three Rural White Guys. They push back on some of the craziness happening in rural red America right now. They have an eye on building and strengthening rural communities while making them a better place to live for everybody. They recognize our privileged white status in society and aim to lift up voices of people who don't look like us. Our episode covers where Republicans obviously lost in Georgia and Stacey Abrams beat them by not stooping to the antics of robotic fembots that don't hold town halls and can't speak to moderates and liberals.

With all the problems the country faced and still faces, how bad could things have gone and could we ever have gotten rid of him? My book, Trump's Second Term, was written in early 2020 long before Trump lost the election and it is eerily prescient in many of its predictions. He would even call it dystopian fiction.

Mercedes Closet by Got Damn Liberals! • A podcast on AnchorApril Jackson-Hunter received a Master of Art in Forensic Psychology from Argosy University. A Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Herzing University. She has a love for a plethora of things, but books and literature has always been her passion. Her story isn’t different from anyone else’s, she took a portion of her life that wouldn’t be forgotten and harnessed it. Her life is filled with family and memories that would get her through some long, rough, and sleepless nights. She experienced violence at the hands of someone who was supposed to love her. For many years after this she battled fear, guilt, and shame until she couldn’t mentally handle it anymore. After seeking help for what she thought were mental instabilities, she received some game changing advice. A counselor suggested that she start a journal in an attempt to help with reoccurring nightmares and insomnia issues. The journal she started turned into the literary work of art you see in front of you today. Listener Supported https://sites.google.com/view/peachnews/sponsors
