Our producers Gavin & Richard (you know, the guys with the portable recording studio) are out galavanting through Europe, so we weren’t expecting to record a podcast this week… until Bruno & the Professor gallantly rode in on their white steeds to save the day. The result is a very special edition of Podcasting Liberally, not just because it’s a bit noisier, but because I also conducted a special one-on-one interview with WA’s 8th Congressional District candidate Darcy Burner.
Darcy tells me about the really big fundraising week she had, thanks in part to an outpouring of grassroots (and netroots) support, and then we talk about why she really is the perfect candidate to represent the working class families in her district. (She really is.) Afterwards, regulars Carl, Mollie and Will join me, Bruno, and of course, the Professor, in a round of our usual witty banter. Topics include the fucking language police at (u)SP, Tom DeLay and the imminent GOP collapse, Matt Rosenberg’s superior writing skills, and why Mollie and I are offended by people who hate atheists.
[Recorded live at the Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally.]
