Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for February 16, 2018, it’s number 162, the Liz Warren 2020! edition of the show with your humble hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa nanophysicist. This week, in anticipation of her nomination, election and coronation in 2020, is our all Liz week! What’s the point of swimming upstream? Socialism is nigh. We didn’t build it! Who doesn’t need a shrill school marm to keep us all in line? Who doesn’t yearn for that Patron Saint of people who can’t read the fine print on their credit card application?

We will reveal some things you never knew about Granny Warren and discuss some things you know only too well.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast number 161 it’s the Devin Nunes, Man of Steele edition of the show with your humble hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. In this week’s edition we dissect, trisect, septasect the Nunes memo, the Steele dossier (yichh!) and the FBI cabal that is working night and day to take Trump down.

This is a serious discussion. Of course the legacy media on the left (did I repeat myself?) are doing nothin but “debunking.” They call it fact checking but they set out with the clear and unvarnished objective to cut the Nunes memo down to size. Newsweek’s treatment is particularly egregious in its one-sidedness. But is the right a bit unhinged as well? Stopa thinks so, Todd is unconvinced. Is there really a conspiracy in the FBI? or is it simply partisanship that has gotten excessive? We will discuss.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast for January 29, 2018, it’s the The Glenn Reynolds Interview: Listen to it All edition of the show, episode number 160! Our special guest this week is the purveyor of Instapundit himself, Glenn Reynolds. We are truly psyched to have Glenn on. He represents the best in independent, libertarian, power-suspicious and iconoclastic podcast voices in the history of the internet.

We will have, in addition to the interview with Glenn, a discussion about gridlock and why it’s so bad after all. The New York Times blathers on about how Donald Trump has demolished the sweet, bipartisan spirit that had been, up until recently, embracing Washington for, how long? who knows?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 23, 2018, it’s the Whither the Street Walkers? edition of the show with your humble Johns radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa. This week we ask why aren’t the street walkers embraced whole-heartedly by the March for Women and the #MeToo movement? After all, who has more right to wear a pussy hat than professional sex workers? They have appeared this year at the Women’s March in Las Vegas (where their profession is, of course, legal) with their insignia red umbrellas, but they seem to generate some, er, friction with the movement, so to speak. We will analyze.

And then, the #NeverTrumpers….again….An interesting article by David Frum in the Atlantic. According to Frum, conservatives need to be culturally modern, economically inclusive and environmentally responsible. According to Frum, Trump appealed to what was mean and cruel and shameful.

Well it worked for the Long Blockchain nee Island Ice Tea Corporation, why can’t it work for us? The former Harvard Lunch Club Political podcast is now the Harvard Bitcoin Club Podcast…or maybe it’s the Harvard Lunch Club Bitcoin podcast…we’re not sure yet. But the Long Island Iced Tea Company tripled their share price last month after catching the bitcoin wave with a catchy name change to go along with their business model change. So we too are going for it!

In this edition of the Harvard Bitcoin Club podcast we talk about…Bitcoin! and then some more about bitcoin! and then (to show how flexible we are) we talk about racism and Donald Trump.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 10, 2018, number 157, it’s the Let’s Go Get Sessions Stoned edition of the show with your Magical Mystery Tour guides Todd Feinburg and Mike Stopa.

This week we explore the non-changes to the federal law prohibiting the sale and use of marijuana and the radical suggestion (hasn’t he done this before?) by A.G. Jeff Sessions that we enforce the existing law!!! Where did they find this guy? Hasn’t he been around Washington enough to know that we pick and choose which laws we enforce based on our perceived anticipation of the arc of history? Our HLC edition #80 contains our interview with then Senator Sessions and is here.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 3, 2018 – O.M.G. it’s 2018! It is the Crimson Crystal Ball edition of the show with your hosts fortune-teller Todd Feinburg and Swami Mike Stopa. We will peer into the future, part the enveloping mists of chaos and tell you what you can expect in the coming year and perhaps beyond! Here are, yes, our much-awaited predictions for 2018! Can you afford *not* to listen?

We will also discuss a column from the New York Times which, gasp, gives begrudging credit to Trump’s deregulation efforts for the economic revival we are enjoying, including the optimism and investment by the business community even before the tax breaks became a reality (or even before they had moved very far along).

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 27, 2017 it’s the Exquisite Flake edition of the show, episode 155 (O.M.G.). We are your humble hosts…at times unabashedly pro-Trump, at times, acerbic, at times silly, we are Todd Feinburg, radio guy and Mike Stopa nanophysicist. And we are with you every week to keep you up to date and properly enraged at the political landscape.

This week, enraged is the key to the show. We have two topics, both enraging. First, Jeff Flake and second regulatory dark matter.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 19, 2017 it’s edition number 154 and we call it the Did Trump Dump Blacks? edition of the show with your hosts Hartford radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.

This week, we will discuss a pair of interesting articles about the African American community and the Trump Administration (the first is called Black America and Donald Trump and the second, from Vox, is The past year of research has made it very clear: Trump won because of racial resentment). The eternal question is naturally why do Blacks support the Democrats so overwhelmingly when the Democrats are working so hard to keep them down and marginalized? Also, was Trump in a position to break that mold only to surrender to racial dog whistles so as to appeal to his racist voter base? What is going on in the heads of the left if they think this is really what’s going on?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for December 13, 2017, it’s the She’ll Do Anything for Moore edition of the show with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.

This week, as we broadcast in real time the results of an election whose results are already known to all, we talk about whether the left is going to succeed by sacrificing Franken and Conyers and any and all other signs of impurity to go after Trump. Will Conyers succeed in holding his seat through nepotism? Will the people of his district in Michigan give a damn about a few pats on the ass here and there? And what of Franken? Who read him the riot act?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for November 21, 2017 it is the “Smelling Like a Charlie Rose” edition of the podcast — *and* it is our podcast number 150! — with your hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and nanophysicist Mike Stopa.

Our topics this week are, first, is there something wrong with Hillary? Hillary lambasts Donald Trump for being a sexual predator in the White House with no apparent sense of irony. None. Even Mika Brzezinski is appalled at her lack of, er, tone???

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for November 14, 2017, it’s the Overseas Trump edition of the show with your hosts, Hartford CT radio maven Todd Feinburg and all things nano person Mike Stopa. This week, we have a Filipino flavor to the podcast in honor of Trump’s visit to and bromance beginning with Rodrigo Duterte. And, in the latest edition of the Florida man saga, who is Ja Du and why does he think, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, that he is Filipino? Isn’t he culturally appropriating? Does he need a bathroom all his own? And, more seriously, why does someone who “identifies” as a different race or ethnicity need to *be* that race or ethnicity? Isn’t it enough to simply *like* Filipino food, clothing, dance, and culture? Why does Ja Du need to actually *be* Filipino? Is it possibly more a denial of his own culture – a need to rebel – that is driving him to insist that his real ethnicity is something else?

We then get into the developing relationship between Duterte and Trump. Are they, perhaps, a match made in heaven? Who are the forgotten people of the Philippines? Isn’t the system there rigged far worse than the system here?

Welcome to this special edition of the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast – because, well, because, …, because, because, because, because, becaaaauuuuse – because we wanted to do more to fill the world with silly podcasts.

In this special edition we talk about three topics. First, what happened in Virginia? Was it the repudiation of Trumpism? Was it rather the repudiation of NeverTrumpism? Is there any meaningful justification for the continued existence in the pundit sphere of Evan McMullin, Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin, Bret Stephens, etc, etc, etc??? Mike tries his hardest to advance the “dignity in the White House”/”the (Grand Old) Party is better off out of power than being trodden upon by Trump” arguments of the McMullin holdouts amongst our listeners. We know you are out there. I won’t go as far as to say that we feel your pain.

And, in a related topic what gives when a poor Soda Pop and Pet Store owner (not kidding here) joins Donald Trump for a signing of an executive order that will help his 100+ employees get affordable health insurance only to find, when he returns to his home in central Massachusetts (yes, *that* Massachusetts) that his name is dog poo-poo? Michael will help us analyze.
