The King of Stuff talks with Alberto de la Cruz, a Cuban American living in Miami and Managing Editor of the invaluable Babalú Blog. Alberto and his writers have tirelessly documented the uprising in Cuba that began Sunday, July 11, and continues throughout the island nation. He talks about how it began, what’s happening now, and what it will take for the decrepit Castro regime to finally fall.

Subscribe to the King of Stuff Spotify playlist featuring picks from the show. Today’s pick is the song that helped spark the uprising, “Patria y Vida” (“Homeland and Life”) by Cuban musicians on the island (Maykel Osorbo and El Funky) and in exile (Yotuel, Gente De Zona, and Descemer Bueno).

The Conservatarians welcome Alberto de la Cruz, Managing Editor of Babalú Blog and expert on the Castro crime family’s hijacking of Cuba. “Insipid apparatchik” Miguel Diaz-Canel has been selected to replace Raúl Castro as warden of the island prison — should we expect changes or more of the same? Jon and Stephen then discuss the latest speech criminal, Prof. Randa Jarrar of Fresno State, whose job is in jeopardy for her ugly Barbara Bush tweets.

The intro/outro music is “Sinner in the Sea” by Calexico. Stephen’s song of the week is “Never Ever” by Lord Huron, and Jon’s is “Watch You, Watch Me” by Suuns. To listen to all the music featured on The Conservatarians, subscribe to our Spotify playlist!
