12 February 2018 – We’re BACK!!! At least, we are back on the air. I’m still traveling so I’ll keep this really short. At the top of the show Will emphasizes the importance of continuing to work toward victory in November and not making the mistake of thinking we are already over the finish line. I get into the latest in the Brexit talks with the EU insisting that Northern Ireland remain within the common market.
In his main block Will talks about the shifting sands within the German government and why this may be a generally hopeful sign. In my block I try to explain what the hell is going on in the stock market and why it is in no way a reflection of what is happening in the real economy.
25 September 2017 – In the show this week Arliss interviews Zach Carter and I discuss both the NFL and the German election.
Yesterday was a tough day for German Democracy, the Far-Right took third place in the German election entitling them to become the third largest political party in the Bundestag. What’s particularly worrying is the tough path that Merkel now has in order to form a government due to fractures in the left wing SDP and the poor coalition options. These conditions include trying to get the Greens to work the CDU and the FDP. The three parties that agree on very little.
We’re also poadcasting the first of several interviews which Arliss made with folks at the MMT conference. This week with Zach Carter, whom we like to quote here at Hopping Mad. Their wide ranging discussion touched on a number of economic issues, but also the way that certain conservatives tend to treat politics like sports.
We’ll have another heavy hitting interview for you next week. – Will
