  • February 18 2015The Big Guns

    The Republicans are gunning for disabled people's Social Security payments, mega-bank HSBC is gunning for news outlets' ability to report on its crimes, and NYU's Nantina Vgontza​ joins to talk about SYRIZA, which is gunning for Europe's austerity-obsessed capitalist class.

  • January 18 2015Return, Revival, and Revisiting

    Jesse and Alexis bring back their segment ADHDisCon, wherein they talk about everything from alternatives to CBO budget scoring to an anti-racist economic program to Alexis' hopefulness about the Democratic Party. Then they talk about how Antonio Weiss, seemingly defeated by Elizabeth Warren, may have won out after all. Lastly, they replay last year's interview with Stephanie Kelton (@StephanieKelton), who has recently accepted a position as Chief Economics for the Senate Budget Committee's Minority caucus.

  • December 18 2014Figgy Pudding

    Grumpy, grumpy Wall Street gets its bonuses, a leading economics forecaster sees doom on the horizon, and Elizabeth Warren's Citigroup speech fulfills a DisCon prophesy -- so we go back in time to make sure you know we told you so.

  • November 14 2014The More Things Change...

    We start with a wrap up of the 2014 midterm elections telling the saga of Andrew Cuomo and the Working Families Party, checking in with our favorite weird North Carolina Congressional district, and winding up with Elizabeth Warren, Jim Himes, and the future of Wall Street and the Democratic Party. Then, we reflect on the recent passing of the anniversaries of the Russian Revolution and fall of the Berlin Wall. Lastly, we speak to David Dayen (@ddayen) about Loretta Sanchez, President Obama's nominee for Attorney General, and one of DisCon's favorite topics, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
