We're snowed out! A freak storm in Seattle meant we couldn't get to the studio to record, so this is a rebroadcast of the November 21, 2016 show.
 
On the #RADIO show this week we take stock of what actually happened in the Presidential election and where we need to go from here. From who voted how and why, to Russians rigging our election and an explosion of fake news sites and bot Tweets, to why we need to stand against Trump’s appointees who are self describe “alt-right” white supremacists like Steve Bannon.  We are #PickingUpThePieces and taking action toward liberty and justice for all!
