Tired of being told there are subjects you can’t talk about? Those subjects are often referred to as, “third rails.” Those are exactly the topics Nick Beaton is going to tackle right here.

Episodes

On this weeks episode I talk about a white guy hitting an Asian guy with a skateboard because the Asian guy was racist, and a video of black guy beating up a white guy because the white guy was racist.  I also talk about the two police officers who were shot in L.A, and yet again, the lack of coverage on the event.

 

All of that and more!  Plus my "Trump Round-Up" and "Tweets of the Week" segments.

On this week's episode I talk about Kyle Rittenhouse.  Was he a white supremacist?  That's what everyone is saying, except, that is, the right wing media.  I also talk about Michael Forest Reinoehl, a self proclaimed member of Antifa, who shot and killed a right wing agitator, and was later killed himself by police.  I specifically dig into a New York Time's article and how it covers the story.

All of that and more!  Plus my "Trump Round-Up" and "Tweets of the Week" segments.

On this weeks episode I talk about why I'm not leaving the left.  There have been lot's of articles on "why I left the left," but I'm not leaving.  I'm staying because it's where I align, and belong.  That's why I'm so critical of what's happening with it.  I also talk about "Chair Girl" and the ludicrous sentence she received, and the situation in Portland.

 

All of that and more!  Plus my "Trump Round-Up" and "Tweets of the Week" segments.

On this weeks episode I talk about the open letter that was published in Harper's magazine.  It was signed by dozens of journalists, writers, podcasters, and academics asking for more open dialogue.  Although it didn't mention "cancel culture" BLM, or Trans issues, everybody filled in their own blanks.  An Op-Ed in the L.A. Times said that the letter was the problem, not cancel culture.  So, I decide to dive in one more time into the cancel culture debate.

On this weeks episode I talk about a woman getting canceled for making an analogy on Tik Tok.  The twist?  She's a progressive.  Will the right start to utilize callout and cancel culture against those who used it like a wrecking ball?  I also rehash an old concern I have over the definition of racism.

All of that and more!  Plus my "Trump Round-Up" and "Tweets of the Week" segments.
