We have a real live Electoral College member on this week’s podcast! His name is Bret Chiafalo, he has a plan to block a Donald Trump presidency, and he shares it with me and Rich Smith. Get out your copy of the Constitution, grab your Federalist Papers, and fire up your calculator. The Electoral College votes on December 19th and, if the plan being hatched by Chiafalo and his “Hamilton Electors” movement works, we’re in for a wild, historic ride. After that: Congresswoman-elect Pramila Jayapal, the first Indian-American woman ever elected to the US House. She’s been described as another Elizabeth Warren, and she’s on to talk about what she’ll be fighting for in DC and how the progressive left can dust itself off, cast aside its bickering and “Oppression Olympics” tendencies, and keep on doing good work. Finally, Stranger film writer Charles Mudede discusses the latest Star Wars movie, Rogue One, and what it teaches about political resistance. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
