Episode 17 - The Ramshackle Resistance Podcast

Recorded: March 15th, 2017. We didn’t have a plan for this one, which feels like meta-commentary on what Tyler eventually came around to calling “the resistance”. Sometimes - most times - it’s important to just do stuff.

The Hari Kondabolu Trump Reminder Schedule is in effect every day at Kondabolu’s twitter.

Example tweet:

REMINDER FOR DAY 58 OF TRUMP PRESIDENCY: THIS IS NOT NORMAL.

Some digestible data on just who TrumpCare/WealthCare/RyanCare hurts and helps (hint: it hurts a lot more than it helps):

The Carrie Brownstein quote Tyler butchered, from the Hell No benefit show at Portland, Oregon’s Crystal Ballroom in February:

"It's important to remember that resistance is a body," Carrie Brownstein said during Sleater-Kinney's electric closing set. "We can't all be the heart, and we can't all be the vascular system, but together, we make a whole body."

A justifiably sassy headline from CNN on Sean “Spicy” Spicer’s spin moves:

Spicer: Trump Didn’t Mean Wiretapping When He Tweeted About Wiretapping

Scottish Government To Seek Independence Referendum Over Brexit

Unsurprisingly, Theresa May has some tone-deaf stuff to say about it.

Theresa May actually said this today. I had to read it twice to make sure I wasn't missing anything #Brexit #irony https://t.co/ArQfCLAhz3 pic.twitter.com/i8PRz8Yhjg

Soviet Soviet‘s “official statement” is a well-written explanation of how a band coming to play a show for no money gets jailed and deported under the auspices of illegal immigration. :(
