The Langer Cast

Andrew and Jerry are joined by a special guest in the Wren's Rest Studio!  The health care bill is released, we talk about the U2 Concert at FedEx Field, Bono's calls for common ground, and people trying to rob others of joy.  We break down the special election in GA-6 and what this bodes for Democrats moving forward, Trump's speech in Cedar Rapids (and his desire to build a solar wall) and Paul Ryan on Tax Reform.

Jerry and Andrew break down the thwarted massacre of Republicans in Alexandria, VA.  Who was James Hodgkinson? How did we get to this point?  Why the left's rhetoric (and the impact thereof) cannot be compared to that on the right.  What does this all mean going forward?

LangerCast Episode 144: Monitorizing Perscapacity (and other malapropisms)
 
An action-packed LangerCast as Andrew and Jerry are joined by TPA's Michi Iliazi and the Baked, Roasted & Fried Blog's Insouciant Chef, Chris Terrell (and his son, Forrest).  Comey is testifying, but what is he actually saying?  We explain the concept of "Woke" to Chris, talk what TPA's up to, discuss Transgender policy, the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, and Bernie Sanders' strange religious tests for public service.

Andrew and Jerry break down the Comey firing, cutting through the partisan narrative to get at what really matters and Andrew has a recommendation for a new FBI Director.  Then they separate the wheat from the chaff on the AHCA--the myths, the facts, and how health care can really be fixed.

Andrew and Jerry break down the first 100 days... and give Trump letter grades.  They talk about the latest in Trump's statements that have the media in an uproar, talk about America's asian foreign policy.  They talk flawed dystopian fiction... and the arrogance of political comedians!

LangerCast Episode 139:  United We Stand, Against United
 
Andrew and Jerry break down the United Airlines saga... and actually aren't so united in their conclusions.  They talk about the special elections in Kansas and Georgia, whether we'll go to war with North Korea and Russia (and what's happening in Syria).  And is Trump pivoting towards the center, or is Trump being Trump?

Andrew and Jerry are live from the Capitol Hill Bunker.  They talk about Maryland legislative shenanigans regarding generic drug and craft beer... and the cronyism involved.  Was pulling the AHCA failure, or brilliant politics?  And legislators in Minnesota want the government to prepare your tax refurns for you... why this is a supremely bad idea.  Plus, Andrew talks about Kong: Skull Island and the dearth of movies he wants to see.

Andrew and Jerry analyze the stunning revelations that came from Rachel Maddow's courageous reporting on Donald Trump's tax return.  Then we break down the concept of "intersectionality" and Andrew talks about the roots of America's "change revolution" and the "psychotic jihad' that has sprung up in response.  Finally, there's controversy over the American Health Care Act... and we talks what's actually terrific about the AHCA!
