PDR 08-20-16 - WHY is Sticky Nips


The campaign is a violent joke, and we couldn't stop laughing at the worst 1-minute infomercials ever. Trust us though, there is a serious conversation in this episode.

PDR 07-14-16 - Race Relations with #myEdward


Kevin is out today, so Michael Wimbush took the reigns as my co-host. we talked American History and Race Relations going back before even the Revolutionary War. Which lead to one of the most calm and educating conversations on this show that we've had in years. We also got to explain from the beginning the inside joke behind the new hashtag #myEdward. Which with whole-heartedly encourage everyone to use in their everyday conversations.

PDR 05-15-16 - You Don't Use Words Like That


George Zimmerman sold the gun used to murder an unarmed child for $140,000. Why? Because he cited it as a genuine piece of American History. Between that and Trump, Loren's brain is ready to explode. And there are no words we can use to describe this episode that won't get us booted off iTunes. Enjoy.

PDR 04-02-16 - Trump-The Reason EVERYBODY HATES US


We need you to listen to this whole episode. It's important. It's a podcast, take your time. But we spent months waiting for the right time to finally do this show. We needed it to hit critical mass. The entire planet is watching this. At this point, it's sickening. Trump was a joke, and now the joke went WAY too far. One terrorist attack and Trump is president. You think about that. Maul it over. If you support Trump, let me tell you, it says more about you than it does of him.

PDR 02-04-16 - Completely UnHinged


This is one of those episodes where our 28 loyal listeners will find it hilarious... While the other couple hundred that tune in to every show might find it as baffling as Andy Kaufman reading Of Mice and Men for 90min. To anybody who just discovered this show and has NEVER listened to it before, we might actually recommend possibly skipping it and checking out another episode first. Come back later and you'll understand why its only really funny if you've been around for quite a while. Sometimes you just have to blow off some steam.

PDR 01-20-16 - The Caucus and The Cactus


Carnival Barkers and freak shows. Iowa and New Hampshire. You know what that means... Time to start placing bets like a true degenerate. Iowa is the first inning, and you know the difference between a Caucus and a Cactus?? At least with a Cactus you know the pricks are on the outside.

PDR 10-25-15 - The Lost Episode: #20lbsOfGlitter


Recorded 10-25-15, this episode was supposed to be released months ago. Originally titled #20lbsOfGlitter - We urge you to get that trending on twitter as we come up with the absolutely worst ways to so delightfully make use of a bathtub full of glitter in the most malevolent ways possible.

PDR 08-05-15 - Political D!SH-content Radio


Special Guest host Jennifer Briney of Congressional Dish. We are live in an undisclosed location deep within Chicago's Miracle Mile. Got an idea, lets pick each other's brains for an hour and see who walks away with the most dignity. Amazing already.

PDR 07-29-15 - Where's your point


Next week we are recording a live show with Jennifer Briney of Congressional Dish. And trust me, it's going to be a scene. Until then, we racked up the points on the week that was. And there's loaded question!!!

PDR 07-09-15 - ZOO


We always expected the 2016 GOP race to be a circus. We just never expected it to be a zoo. This amount of unruly sh!t is enough to make you gag. So we spent an hour distinguishing the batsh!t from the horse sh!t. All that remained is elephant dung. Go figure.

PDR 06-02-15 - Loaded Questions


We have a laundry list of loaded questions provided by our loyal listeners. First, there is no question we arent willing to answer. And chances are, there are no depths to Loren's depravity.

PDR 05-12-15 - Playing Catch-Up


A months worth of work in just over an hour. Trust Me. We hit all bases. If George Zimmerman gets shot in the face, and nobody is around who cares... Is it a crime? See. I told you. Flawless logic. America. My favorite 3rd world nation.

PDR 03-31-15 - Iran them Over


Fun times this week. We have foreign policy. We have domestic policy. And to top it all of, we get to play the Larry King Game. Kevin Pollak would be proud.

PDR 03-18-15 - Tom Cotton owned a farm


Sen. Tom Cotton wrote a letter to Iran. Thats not a punchline. With a name like cotton, you know his grandpappy owned someone elses grandpappy. Aaron Shock from Illinois tried getting a little ambitious, one more charge and he can be governor.

PDR 03-04-15 - Spook'd


Those amatuers on the right finally thought that got something on Hillary, harpooning her 2016 run. A birdy told them that she ONLY used her personal email account during the entirety of her post as Secretary of State. Gmail anyone. Do I hear a hotmail. Turns out that it is strictly on a need to care basis. That and it is probably the most secure server on the entire planet. Commissioned by Leon Panetta and created specifically by Langley. Good work you dolts.

PDR 02-10-15 - The Day the Clown Cried


Brian Williams is off the air for at least 6 months. Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show in around 6 months. And Kevin is seriously depressed. What, Rachel Maddow isn't good enough? When she puts on her glasses, she becomes Chris Hayes.

PDR 02-04-15 - Net Neutrality or how I learned to love the FCC


We have the FCC attempting to make Net Neutrality the law of the land, despite the fact that they don't actually write any laws. ISIS killed a Jordanian pilot alive, so guess what happens next. If you said they all sit down and talk it out... Guess again. And finally, Loren explains why low gas prices might actually do more harm than good in the long run.

PDR 01-13-15 - #JeSuisCharlie


They say that comedy is merely tragedy plus time. If thats the case, I'd still prefer a little less tragedy. The brazen attack on cartoonists, not even journalists... Cartoonists, at Charlie Hebdo rocked the boat and shook our nerve. Lets discuss.

PDR 01-06-15 - The tea Party is Challenged


When pointing out someones complete lack of comprehension for reality, for some reason we feel it is more polite to say that they are merely challenged. Its what happens when the words we really want to use, gets us tossed off itunes for being... inappropriate. Oh, what charming euphemisms we use to dodge the painful truth. Lets just say they're challenged.

PDR 12-23-14 - Christmas in Korea


It was two nights before Christmas and all though the house, not a creature as stirring... Except - Cuba, North Korea, Sony, and a couple of police shootings. Ok, something was stirring. But it wasn't that alcoholic Santa at the mall smelling of poverty and whiskey. This is the week that was on Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 12-02-14 - Circle Takes the Square


Kevin tries to goad Loren into stepping on his own rake TWICE. Like Sideshow Bob. Good luck with that. Ashton Carter, the most qualified man in all of America, is named SecDef. Chicago Raises the minumum wage to 13. DC tables Wall Street reform. Ukraine turns into the UAE. And Circle takes the Square.

PDR 11-18-14 - Fast and Furious


The senate went all fast and furious with a trip to nowhere. Keystone XL, Immigration, NSA. Keep it coming boys. They called up the National Guard in Ferguson Missouri because Vegas odds say the grand jury will acquit the cop who shot Michael Brown faster than an LA minute. That and more, this week on Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 11-04-14 - SuperTuesday - Election Night Special Coverage


It's election night, SuperTuesday, and we have full comprehensive coverage of all the madness running across the screens. Aside from that, stay tuned to the next episode coming up where we spill our guts on all the dirty secrets of all the crazy shit we were not only witnessed to, but were involved in during our work as professional political consultants over the past 4 years.

PDR 10-12-14 - Never Under-Estimate the Ignorance of the WhiteMan's Culture


This is a Rock'em Sock'em Robots of an episode that you do not want to miss. And SPOILER ALERT - it's probably the most fun we've had in years. Isn't it great when we've finally have time off from our work behind the scenes in politics, and can at least laugh at all of what we've been through.

PDR 09-10-14 - Bombing Syria One Year Late


Obama gave a speech about full scale military opps against ISIS. Lets start bombing Syria. Why not, they gas their own people. Second half, we have Putin. He rides shirtless on horses. Never thought the Russian cowboy chic was a popular style. Go figure.

PDR 09-10-14 - Bombing Syria One Year Late -PART 1


Obama gave a speech about full scale military opps against ISIS. Lets start bombing Syria. Why not, they gas their own people. Second half, we have Putin. He rides shirtless on horses. Never thought the Russian cowboy chic was a popular style. Go figure.

PDR 09-10-14 - Bombing Syria One Year Late -PART 2


Obama gave a speech about full scale military opps against ISIS. Lets start bombing Syria. Why not, they gas their own people. Second half, we have Putin. He rides shirtless on horses. Never thought the Russian cowboy chic was a popular style. Go figure.

PDR 08-24-14 - ICE Busket Challenge


Pouring a bucket of ice over your head, just to get out of donating money to charity - is fucking retarded. Fuck off. That and more, including politics, the middle east, and russia. Which i can see from my home, if I lived in an igloo.

PDR 08-17-14 - Adrian Cronauer


Robin Williams once said 'suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem'. Parkinson's is not a temporary problem. By the looks of it, neither is Ferguson. Fun times.

PDR 08-10-14 - Dropping Freedom From the Sky


We stopped work to record a show. Just for you, The Wolf Blitzer comedy hour. Bombs on Baghdad and bullets over Broadway. This is Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 08-03-14 - YES We are Back


What have we learned... Kevin will not help me if I have Ebola. Call me naive, but I expected more from him. Welcome to the week that was. This is Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 04-30-14 - THE WAY WE GET BY


Welcome to the week that was. We have updated analysis of the crisis in Ukraine. We also have a follow up to the TPP as Obama travels to Japan. If you haven't yet, we urge you to listen to the show from 01-14-14, where we went into great detail to explain the TPP in the first place.

PDR 03-13-14 - Interview: Ukraine


We have a special guest in the studio this week. Joined by a Ukrainian national... We try to make sense of this on going situation. Is this a simple land grab by Russia, or is Putin playing a high stakes game of RISK here. On the other side, will NATO come to the rescue, or are they partially to blame in the first place.

PDR 01-29-14 - Pompous Circumstance


The State of the Union address. This is the Superb Owl of political events in DC. If you didn't see it, you missed nothing. Lets recap the most lack-luster of pomp and circumstance. This is the week that was... Here on Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 01-14-14 - Chris Christie and The TPP


Back by popular demand!!! Chris Christie might be in hot water over a bridge, but it's his earlier behavior that has us smoking. Back in 2011... When it came to making sure rape victims weren't forced to pay for their own rape kits, Christie almost never didn't sign that bill. And have you heard of the TPP. You have now!

PDR 10-16-13 - Was it worth it??


Jennifer Briney, host of Congressional Dish, joins us once again to finish where we left off. We have her on this week because she read the entire 759 page bill that is Obamacare. With both sides of congress going all George Zimmerman on us and standing their ground to tragic results, we only have one real question for her... Was it worth it??

PDR 10-03-13 - The Lunatics Shut-Down the Asylum


Jennifer Briney, host of the most intelligent show on the internet - Congressional Dish - joins us to talk about the House of Representatives. We discuss the government shut down, holding the country hostage to demands against Obamacare, and the impending economic disaster if they do not vote to raise the debt ceiling.

PDR 10-03-13 - The Lunatics Shut-Down the Asylum - part 1


Jennifer Briney, host of the most intelligent show on the internet - Congressional Dish - joins us to talk about the House of Representatives. We discuss the government shut down, holding the country hostage to demands against Obamacare, and the impending economic disaster if they do not vote to raise the debt ceiling.

PDR 10-03-13 - The Lunatics Shut-Down the Asylum - part 2


Jennifer Briney, host of the most intelligent show on the internet - Congressional Dish - joins us to talk about the House of Representatives. We discuss the government shut down, holding the country hostage to demands against Obamacare, and the impending economic disaster if they do not vote to raise the debt ceiling.

PDR 09-25-13 - Ted Cruz is a Putz


What if Ted Cruz babbled on for nearly 22 straight hours and only c-span junkies paid attention? What if the Pittsburgh Pirates were instead called the Somali Pirates? Now that sounds like an intimidating mascot. Trust me... There's more. This is the week that was on Political Discontent Radio.

Special Report: Syria - PDR 09-04-13 - YOU DO NOT GAS PEOPLE.


We always said that we'd rather talk about it first, than report on it later. Well... we've been talking about Syria for over a year. And, I guess we are reporting on it now. Very rarely do we ever see eye to eye on military use and action, but this time we stand together on this. One thing remains a constant... YOU DO NOT GAS PEOPLE. EVER. You do not gas people. We've seen footage of children dying slowly from the effects of nerve agents. Enough is enough. You ever touch a hair on child's head, and I will show absolutely no sympathy for what's to come. And so, here we are. You do not gas people. Ever.

PDR 08-14-13 - Shit Got Real


Twelve years ago, we experienced a defining shift in the way we exist. It was a dynamic moment in time where we got to choose how we go forward. And we gave into fear. We gave into fear, and systematically dismantled everything that made us who we are. Not as citizens of this country, but who and what it was that made us Americans as a people and as a culture. And it is time to ask how we now go forward. And when do we know if we have passed that point of no return? It is time we have that conversation.

PDR 07-17-13 - Battle Over Who Could Care Less


Rachel Allshiny joins us to co-host the show once again. Only took her 7 months. We have a myriad of topics to cover. Including... Knock Knock. Who's there. NOT GUILTY. But of course, foreign policy ultimately rules the day.

PDR 06-26-13 - Uncle Clarence's Cabin


I was going to call the show - Paula Dean's Plantation, but that might be a little racially insensitive. Actually, no it won't. The events of this week have been nothing less than repugnant, and there is no better way to draw attention to this fact. I might not be black, but I'll tell you one thing... sometimes I am embarrassed to be white.

PDR 06-05-13 - Shenanigans


There's a lot to get to this week and we apologize for being off the air for so long. Good news is, we are back. And we have a show loaded with entertainment and information. So it's the best of both worlds. Stay tuned. We have more shows on the way.

PDR 05-08-13 - Hiking Down the Appalachian Trail


Mark Sanford went for a hike along the Appalachian Trail and ended up a United States Congressman from South Carolina. McCain picked a fight with CIA Director John Brennan and swiftly was put in his place. Fun Times. These stories and more, this week on Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 05-02-13 - Inside Trading


Loren finally gets to the story of the most brazen act of insider trading that he's witnessed in years. Also, we cover Stephen Colbert's sister running for congress in South Carolina, as well as, Jason Collins who is the first major sports figure to openly come out as gay.

PDR 04-23-13 - Reflections From The Plank


Since our first show, we are here to report the news and to entertain. Sometimes one must come before the other. But if you stick around, I promise, we'll be sure to make you laugh. And in the end, comedy has always proven to be the best way of coping.

PDR 03-28-13 - Political DISH-Content Radio


Jennifer Briney, the host of our favorite podcast Congressional Dish, joins us once again for round two. Two questions asked, and a dozen solid answers on how we can progressively change for the better. How do we take the money out of the system? And better yet... How do we get the youth vote out to the polls. Because if this generation between the ages of 18-35 years old actually showed up to vote, they would out number the baby boomers and the senior vote combined.

PDR 03-14-13 - DISH IT OUT - Part 1


We are so very proud of the show we put together this week. We are honored to be joined by Jennifer Briney, host of the podcast Congressional Dish. Calling in from Boston as a contributor to the show, we got an up-front civics lesson from host and creator of our favorite show on the internet. This is the first episode in a series of upcoming shows we will have featuring Jennifer. Join us as we meld the best of both worlds and tackle the issues and questions that we as a country have been consciously dodging for over a decade now.

PDR 02-27-13 - Secretary of War or How I Learned to Love Defense


Chuck Hagel was finally confirmed as our Secretary of Defense this week. This comes after a rather contemptuous confirmation hearing where John McCain tried to rewrite the war in Iraq and re-litigate the Vietnam War. This brought us to a larger conversation which revolved around our recent history of getting into wars without even knowing how we got there to begin with. We drop a little knowledge and walk our way down memory lane, this week on Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 02-21-13 - Herman Cain is the Funniest Comedian Ever


If there was ever an episode of Political Discontent Radio that you do not want to miss, it is this week. In the spirit of Andy Kaufman's alter ego, Herman Cain is about to get a show on Fox News. This man is so offensive that it went full circle from being offensive to pure comedy. In the Second Segment, we downshift from the funny to the all too serious. The former Navy SEAL who personally was the one who shot Bin Laden, left the special forces after 16 years. Despite slipped disks in his spine and a body riddled with scare tissue from bullet wounds, apparently he hasn't done enough for this country. So now he is left without a pension and the Navy dropped the medical coverage for his family. If that is how we treat the real heroes in this world, this is a very sick country. And we don't toss that word HERO around lightly. Good to be back in the studio doing what we love. This is Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 02-14-13 - This Country is on the Verge of a Breakdown


This week is an absolute carnival. We have North Korea popping off another nuke. The Senate blocked Chuck Hagel's nomination as SecDef, so we are now a country at war without the secretary of war... charming. The former Hitler-youth Nazi Pope resigned. And LAPD burned down a cabin finally killing a psychopathic ex-cop with an arsenal of guns and a hit list. Did I miss anything?? Oh yeah, Syria is a nightmare and Obama gave the State of the Union address. This is the week that was - here on Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 01-17-13 - TROLLS


The word for the day is TROLLS. As brought to you by Rachel Maddow. Our news got cancelled this week because of multiple sports scandals, and it seems to have been replaced by Inside Edition and TMZ. So we are going to knock it out of the park... You see what I just did there?

PDR 01-10-13 - Gun Control Anyone??


Kevin's Back!!! And he wants to discuss gun control. Been there, done that, and out-crazied the crazies. But Kevin is insistent on trying to take a swing at it himself. What about progressive legislation to help regulate a marketplace that sells military weapons to civilians that live in densely populated areas?? What about that is going too far? Just send the hate-mail to Kevin.

PDR 12-25-12 - Festivus For The Rest Of Us


We already crashed a ski lodge. And it's the "Festivus For The Rest Of Us" show and tell. We recorded a show on location today, and it's fun and games for everyone. Rachel tells what it is like to be hit on while working at a book store, and Loren tells what it is like to be always treated like a piece of meat.

PDR 12-20-12 - Zombie Apocalypse


It is 12-20-12 and that means only one thing... you have only hours till the Zombie Apocalypse or as we call it - The Cosmological SuperBowl of Lunacy - descends on all of us. Either way we are cracking jokes like there is no tomorrow. ahh... See what I did there? If this is the last show we ever do before being eaten by Zombies, then this is the way I wanted to go out. Recorded on location somewhere deep in the bowels of the Chicagoland area, this is Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 12-05-12 - Something's Amiss In Syria


While our politicians are playing financial Russian Roulette with a Fiscal Cliff, the middle-east is playing with a firestorm of their own. Egyptians are rioting in the streets and the Syrian government is prepping sarin nerve gas to use on their own people. Back with a chip on our shoulder and a puppy on Kevin's lap, this is Political Discontent Radio.

PDR 11-21-12 - THE RUMBLE 2012


We wanted to give all our loyal listeners a treat this week. So we are finally presenting THE RUMBLE 2012, where Jon Stewart got to debate Bill O'Reilly live on stage. This was a pay-to-play event, where half of the money went to charity, while the other half went to pay for O'Reilly's concubine. So we are giving it to you for free. Only one request... If you have the means, we'd like you to donate a dollar or two to Make-A-Wish. They provide one last trip for terminally ill children to spend with their families, and we graciously support this charity . So if you have the means, please help a child that doesn't have the time. Thank you, and enjoy.

PDR 11-06-12 - ELECTION DAY 2012 - 1AM


1AM-CST - On our post-election wrap up... We have a break down of who won and lost in the Senate, and how this will affect the next 4 years. We also touch on a preview of our work behind the scenes this election year as political strategists, where we were instrumental in ensuring that a $2.9B financial firm did not infiltrate a state house race. If buying a selling congressmen is bad enough, this was literally the equivalent of Enron running Ken Lay for congress. And WE WON!!! Cheers. That and more, including live coverage of Obama's victory speech on this 1AM finale to ELECTION DAY 2012.

PDR 11-06-12 - ELECTION DAY 2012 - 9PM


9PM-CST on Election Day 2012, and we finally have results to report on. We have big senate wins for the democrats in OH, IN, MA, and MO. They have called important states in the win column for Obama. We have results in on Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Alan Grayson won his seat back in FLA-9. And we are waiting on results to come in to see how much early voting affected the race in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. More to come in real soon. Stay tuned to Political Discontent Radio for updates throughout the night as we continue our on going coverage of Election Day 2012.

PDR 11-06-12 - ELECTION DAY 2012 - 5PM


This is 5pm-CST of our on going coverage of Election Day 2012. We have a breaking story of a Pennsylvania voting machine that was pulled from the line after it was found to be actively flipping peoples votes from Obama to Mittens Romney. And to top all stories of Election Day 2012, a pregnant woman in Illinois stood in line to vote, while going into labor. That and more as Political Discontent Radio gives you hourly updates of Election Day 2012.

PDR 11-06-12 - ELECTION DAY 2012 - 3PM


To open our ELECTION DAY 2012 marathon coverage, we break down the hours that the polls close and when we should get some results in. We also go state by state and answer how many electoral votes each state gets. This is the 3pm show of our on-going ELECTION DAY 2012 coverage.

PDR 11-01-12 - Pre Presidential Election Coverage


This is the last show before our 24hr ELECTION DAY MARATHON. We give a rundown of this week in American politics. A hurricane in late October, Bloomberg endorses Obama, and a breakdown of the swing states with Obama showing an 80% chance of winning the electoral college with 5 days out.

10-24-12 - The 3rd Presidential Debate


This is it, the 3rd and final Presidential Debate. We are presenting the debate in full. And just like last week, we are offering more entertainment for the buck. We take breaks four times, and give you our insight and analysis which is more entertaining at times than listening to these two drone on. We make it easier to hear the parts you want, while skipping the parts you don't. We give the minute markers to skip around and listen to exactly what you want to hear, and jump right to those testy moments and knock out shots that you've heard so much about. The goal is to give you the facts that most affect you, with an emphasis on bringing you an informative and enjoyable experience. And that's what we deliver on. So get the pop-corn ready, buckle in, and lace up those shoes... This is Political Discontent Radio.

10-17-12 - The 2nd Presidential Debate


This week brought us the 2nd Presidential Debate. We are presenting the debate in full. But this week we are offering more entertainment for the buck. We take breaks four times, and give you our insight and analysis along with quotes and perspectives from others around the country. And we make it easier to hear the parts you want, while skipping the tame notes. We give the minute markers to skip around and listen to what you want to, and jump right to those testy moments and knock out shots. The goal is to give you the facts that most affect you, with an emphasis on bringing you an informative and enjoyable experience.

10-11-12 - The Vice-Presidential Debate


This week we have the Vice-Presidential debate. We are presenting this debate in its entirety, along with a brief intermission where we bring you our half-time analysis. And as always at the end, we ask the most important question - What have we learned?

10-03-12 - The Presidential Debate


This week brought us the First Presidential Debate. While we thought we were going to hear some of Romney's famed ZINGERS, we instead got an immediate pledge to shut down Big Bird and Sesame Street when Romney promised to pull government funding for PBS. The result was immediate on twitter with a call to puppet arms for a Million Muppet March. We decided to give you this debate uninterrupted and in-full this time. Stay tuned, as we analyze the polls later in the week to see how this Sesame Street Showdown will affect the upcoming election.

09-27-12 - The Romney Stench


It seems the Romney-Ryan honeymoon is all but over. Right now, Ryan is calling Romney "the stench", while the Romney camp is referring to Ryan as Gilligan. One thing is for sure, our little buddy, Bob Denver, is rolling in his grave. We have poll numbers from the famed Nate Silver of fivethirtyeight, that says Obama will receive 320 electoral votes, which makes this race all but over. With 40 days to go, it is going to be a long green mile for that Romney Camp.

09-20-12 - The Romney Tape


This week we have the devastating notion that the Romney Campaign is unraveling at the seams. Between his foreign policy gaff that he had to release on the night of 9-11 and the video of his fundraiser where he shows nothing but contempt for his voting public, this man is toast. And if you tune in, you get to understand the new hashtag floating around now #go_buy_a_tv Oh Joy! This is Political Discontent Radio.

09-13-12 - Chicago Teachers Union Strike


This week we are covering the Chicago Teacher's Union strike including all aspects affecting negotiations. We have reports from on the ground, as well as the details of what is holding up a contractual agreement. One thing is certain, collective bargaining is a beautiful thing.

09-06-12 The Barack Obama Speech


This is the Barack Obama speech from the final night of the DNC. We let it play in its entirety, as we follow along. Inspiring is an understatement. Compared to what we heard a week earlier at the RNC, this is what a statesman sounds like. Tune in and join us, as we listen to this speech and know that this job is not yet done. It took 8 years to tear this country apart. Lets come together to take the full 8 years to put the pieces back together and make us stronger than when we started. This is Political Discontent Radio.

09-05-12 The Bill Clinton Speech


On Wednesday this week at the DNC, we were privileged to witness one of the most dynamic speeches in the past 20 years. Bill Clinton stepped on stage and captivated us with a policy speech that systematically dismembered the republicans fact-free attacks on Obama. This is something special, and 20 years from now, we will watch this speech again with the same awe and splendor that we experienced the first time we heard it.

08-30-12 The Romney Speech


This week we got together to play MST3000 with the Mitt Romney speech at the RNC in Tampa. Like a used car salesman, he got his chance to sell us on all his ideas. To our dismay, all he was missing was his ideas. This was the most charismatic we have ever seen him though, and he sounded more presidential than we ever expected.

08-23-12 Full Show


We've been on the air for one full year, and every week it only get stranger. With one week before the RNC convention, republicans are now arguing over the proper definition of rape. Oh, aren't they just charming little creatures.

08-16-12 Full Show


This week is a must hear, as we have a special call in interview from Wisconsin. Amber joins the show deep from the trenches of Paul Ryan, Scott Walker territory to discuss just how toxic the general discourse has really gotten. Keep your hands and legs inside the vehicle at all times and lace up them shoes, this is Political Discontent Radio.

08-09-12 Full Show


Rachel Allshiny joins Loren once again. This time we tear apart a news article to get to the truth behind sloppy and lazy journalism. Good news is, in key battleground states, Obama is decimating the competition when it comes to the womens vote. This is Political Discontent Radio.

07-26-12 Full Show


This week on Political Discontent Radio, Rachel Allshiny joins Loren to discuss the MPAA and whether Former Senator Chris Dodd has anything to do with the money and politics that goes into releasing summer blockbusters.

07-12-12 Full Show


This week we cover the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. We go into detail on how this bill affects each and every one of you. While we may all have problems with the bills shortcomings, whether you are 18-35 or a Baby Boomer reaching retirement, this bill benefits you and we are going to show you how.

06-27-12 Full Show


This week we are once again visited by the ever entertaining Rachel Allshiny, where she tries to keep the guys in line. Loren swears that he can go the whole show only cursing 10 times. And we place bets on the Supreme Court ruling on Obama-care the night before the verdict. Gypsy curses and more, this week on Political Discontent Radio.
