2232 - Shadow Network: Media, Money, and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right w/ Anne Nelson

Happy Tuesday, Sam hosts journalist and academic Anne Nelson to discuss her new book, Shadow Network: Media, Money, and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right. Sam and Nelson begin their interview with a play-by-play of how fundamentalist Evangelical Christians rallied behind Ronald Reagan during his the 1980 election and helped fuel his victory with a strong turnout in southern and southwestern states. Nelson also explains the foundational tenets of Christian Nationalism, and the role of "Biblical Inerrancy," which states the word of God is in the text of the bible, in Christian Nationalists policy projects. Nelson's book explores the history and impact of the Council for National Policy (CNP), the professional umbrella organization for the country's most influential conservative organizations and activist groups. Nelson explains how the CNP brokered a deal with Trump in 2016, which involved adding Mike Pence as his running mate and establishing an Evangelical Advisory Board in Trump's White House. Sam and Nelson conclude their discussion exploring the role of conservative media outlets like Salem Media, and their ability to fill the void where capital investors starved and killed local news organizations.  And in the Fun Half: Mehdi Hasan gets the chance to remind CNN that Bernie is still leading across the first four democratic primaries, Mayor Pete moves the goalposts on his free college position, Michael Bennet dodges the free college question (and is still running for president), Sebastian Gorka wants to know if Charlie Kirk took a DNA test, Duncan Hunter is pleading guilty and we remember when he blamed his wife for the 60 campaign finance criminal charges against him, a Libertarian caller makes Sam's day, TruNews' "Jew Coup" and their White House Press Corps membership, plus your calls and IMs!

2231 - For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity w/ Liz Plank

Good Monday morning, the Majority Report is back from the Thanksgiving holiday with a new interview featuring journalist Liz Plank on her new book, For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity.  Sam and Plank begin their conversation discussing the need to expand the context surrounding gender discourse. Plank explains that we are more comfortable limiting boys in their actions in behavior in ways that evoke emotion or vulnerability. Yet, we have no issue promoting boys to perform violence, whether that be toy guns or certain video games. Considering the hierarchy of social roles, how they are gendered, and the value applied to them, Sam and Plank discuss how the state and American capitalism have shaped our understanding of masculinity in our culture. A foundational element of male identity in America is the role of "Provider." Sam and Liz discuss how, under capitalism, the part of Provider is magnified and brings stress that is not as prevalent in countries whose economies incorporate more elements of socialism. Closing out their conversation, Sam and Plank take on Sam's "zero-sum" discourse, what happens when white guys begin to lose their disproportionately large piece of the cultural and material pie? Plank concedes that there is a self-correction taking place in society and that white men are losing their entitlement, but, in the end, ending that entitlement will ultimately be a good thing as it will help bring more substantial equality.  And in the Fun Half: a city-run grocery store in deep-red Florida, Mayor Pete's insincere free college proposal, John from San Antonio plants his Bernie yard sign and shares his latest thoughts on progressives need for delegates in 2020, Louie Gohmert and "the power of positive thinking" legal defense, John Kennedy double backs and reclaims his belief that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections, Bloomberg's unique take on dictatorship and democracy, Brandon Straka updates Walk-Away 2020, Mark Zuckerberg's private dinner with Donald Trump, Waleed Shahid from Justice Democrats explains the fight for Medicare for All, plus your calls and IMs!
