Join Jim and Greg as they welcome a much better than expected jobs report when dismal numbers were expected. They also unload on President Biden and the Democrats for running out of COVID relief funds – because their $1.9 trillion legislation contained very little COVID relief. And they scrutinize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments that America’s Olympic athletes should just compete and not speak out against the repressive Chinese government.

Join Charlotte as she discusses how we can all help non-profits that are helping people who have been hurt by the coronavirus.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome more help from Congress to help small businesses stay afloat. They also shudder at a new poll showing 75 percent of seniors don’t even want non-essential workers to be allowed outside.  And they discuss the significance of learning coronavirus was here and killing people earlier than we thought.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome reassuring news from Dr. Birx about the COVID-19 threat. They also agree there’s a ton of wasteful spending in the relief bill but aren’t sure if forcing members back to D.C. was a great move by Rep.

Welcome the the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for September 13, 2017, it’s the You Gotta Be Blind edition of the podcast with your hosts Todd Feinburg, Boston/Hartford radio guy and Mike Stopa, a.k.a. Mr. All-Things-Nano. This week we analyze the transmogrification of the Republican Party. Obviously there’s a big food fight going on. How did the once radical, Ayn Randist acolyte and Eddie Munster look-alike (I just threw that in) find himself all of a sudden as the face of the GOP establishment? Mitch McConnell we understand. He was made for the role. But Ryan’s self-image (surely) is as the rowdy, uncontrollable disrupter plugging Tooheys and moochers faster than you can say where is John Galt? Who exactly is the establishment? Why are they at war with Trump (aside for personality factors)? We will discuss.

And then, Stevie Wonder takes about thirty seconds to transform a charity fundraiser for victims of the two recent hurricanes into a political platform. Stevie! Not you!?!? We thought he had more gravitas than that. Beyonce, on the other hand, thinks that earthquakes are caused by climate change. What one thing does Hollywood – whose denizens have everything man or woman could want –  lust for that they just can’t seem to find? We will reveal.
