North Korea is an enigma. We know they have nuclear weapons, and we know they're a highly controlled society run by a madman who comes from a long line of them... but what do we know about what actually goes on there? The society? The people?

Not much. Lucky for us, Suki Kim (@sukisworld) bravely went undercover as an Evangelical English teacher for 6 months, and is here to tell us about her experience.

"Knowledge in that world is dangerous. Truth is dangerous. What goes on there is worse than my worst nightmare."

House Republicans finally managed to take the first step towards repealing Obamacare - passing a bill none of them had read, and the CBO didn't have time to evaluate. Luckily Trump had clearly gone over it carefully and in detail, so everything should be fine.

Obamacare was popular. Trumpcare isn't. Neither is this president. Yet Republicans followed him over the cliff anyway. Hopefully people won't get hurt as a result, but if they do everyone who voted yes will have this vote "tattooed on their foreheads" as Pelosi said come 2018.

You've probably heard of Alex Jones and dismissed him as a right-wing conspiracy theorist kook... but you know who hasn't? Our President.

We're in an info war, and Alex Jones is a general in command of a very riled up, very well-armed army- one which he isn't afraid to incite. He has the ear of Donald Trump, he regularly talks about "hot civil war", and if we don't start paying attention to the things he's saying, we may get ambushed.

Andy Cush (@cushac) of Spin Magazine has been following Alex for a while, and he's here to give us some insight into this influential, potentially very dangerous man.

By all accounts, Russian bots played a big part in tipping the election to Trump, in large part by using data to hyper-target Americans and inundate them with misinformation - a strategy called "Active Measures".

But how did they have so much information about Americans? And where did they get it?

All roads seem to lead to Cambridge Analytica, a mysterious company that Steve Bannon was on the board of until recently, likely owned by Robert Mercer, the billionaire behind Trump, Brexit, and Citizens United. It's a complicated story, but Ann Marlowe (@AnnMarlowe) has been following it longer than most, and she's here to explain as much as we can understand.

A few weeks back you may have seen Rachel Maddow's 30 minute presentation on Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Trump's links to The Bank of Cyprus, where Russian oligarchs stash their dirty money. Her (uncredited) source for that report was James S. Henry (@Submergingmkt) - a Yale Professor/Lawyer/Global Justice fellow who knows a thing or two about a thing or two.

Jim is here to talk a bit about the Trump-Putin situation, offer 2 potential theories for it, and also discuss a bit about journalism ethics in the digital age.

"We need to put #TrumpRussia in its place

and get on with the business of organizing."

- James S. Henry

When tweeting about the issues doesn't feel like enough, the next best thing to do is run for office. I've had a half-serious itch to do that recently, but we live in a very conservative area now, so I wanted to talk to someone who faced similar odds.

Khary Penebaker (@KharyP) is an African-American man in a deep red part of Wisconsin. He's an optimist, so he threw his hat in the ring and ran for a congressional seat, challenging a 38-year incumbent this past year.

He lost, but it was a valiant effort, and he's here to tell us about the experience.

"Democracy requires our participation."

- Khary

Adam Khan (@Khanoisseur) has been deep-diving into Trump's financial ties to Russia - and the Russian mafia in particular - for MONTHS, and the media is just now starting to catch on.

Trump has been helping Russians launder their money for decades. He was recently fined $10 Million for money-laundering through his casinos. This is a big deal. Yet nobody talks about it. But Adam does.

"Trump has been courting dirty Russian money since the late 1980's... The President of the USA was fined $10M for laundering money. That's a smoking gun."

@LouiseMensch is a former member of British Parliament who has been out in front on the #TrumpRussia stuff all along.

She's here to tell us how the Russians were involved in throwing the election to Trump... why democrats anger towards FBI director James Comey for "The Comey Letter" is misplaced... what it has to do with how Anthony Weiner was catfished,... and how in the end James Comey will be the man that rids the White House of President Trump, who was installed by Putin, in what will become the biggest scandal in American history.

By now you've all heard the rumor that Trump likes to watch girls pee-pee on each other. It's funny, but that comedy is serving as a smoke screen to hide the fact that the 35-page dossier the Golden Showers story came from was put together by a credible British agent, and Trump being in bed with Russia - with his eye on Trillions worth of their oil - is a very real problem for our country.

Trump's ties to Putin run deep. This week, the CIA made it clear Russia did its best to throw the election Trump's way, and Trump's right hand-man even posted "Washington Is Ours" on Facebook. Chilling.

Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Daily News is here to tell us whether or not we should be in our bunkers already.

"It's a similar feeling to Watergate."

In part 2 of my attempt to process our new Trumped-Up reality, I talk about the anti-Trump protests and our next president's psychotic tweets about them, which Trump we'll get, how Hillary really won, where the country is really headed... and how it feels like we're all in the closet waiting for our abusive father to come home, wondering how drunk he'll be and what he'll hit us with.

Would love to hear your thoughts...

That wasn't a bad dream. That happened last night. Today I fly solo without a guest and try to process what happened, why it might've happened, why it's scary... and do my best to strike a hopeful tone for what's to come.

We all remember the Eric Garner video, where he told Staten Island police "I can't breathe" 11 times before dying after an illegal choke hold-- all for allegedly selling cigarettes. @RamseyOrta was the man who filmed it, and has been targeted by Staten Island P.D. ever since. He's here to tell us what happened that day, and explain why he regrets not remaining anonymous.

"They started harassing me that same night.

As soon as I lay in my bed at 4AM, a big-ass spotlight comes in my room."

Some are upset Colin Kaepernick has been protesting the national anthem before games, but Dave Zirin (@EdgeOfSports) of www.TheNation.com - a frequent contributor to ESPN, CNN, and many others - is here to explain why what he's doing is as American as apple pie. 

"This is not a demand for peace, this is a demand for justice. This is much more in that Muhammad Ali tradition."

Again, we're vaccinating our daughter. But we do have questions. Our 3rd interview about vaccines is with Mary Holland and Lou Conte, 2 parents who after much research and observation have come to the conclusion vaccine injury is the only explanation for what happened to their children.

Mary and Lou looked into all the children compensated for brain injury by the U.S. Vaccine Court, contacted the families, and found 83 kids with an autism diagnosis. Coincidence? They think not.

"If vaccines don't cause autism, how come all these children compensated for vaccine injury have autism?"

- Louis Conte

In interview 1 we heard from Del Bigtree, producer of the controversial documentary VAXXED. Today we hear from investigative journalist Brian Deer, who got the director of the documentary Dr. Andrew Wakefield - the conductor of a study linking the MMR vaccine to bowel disease in autistic children- barred from practicing medicine years ago. 

Brian's work is a big part of the reason the documentary is essentially being blackballed in America... but is Wakefield as evil as Brian thinks? Have a listen and decide for yourself.

In California we're required by law to give our kids 49 doses of vaccines by Kindergarten... but are vaccines 100% safe, as most people seem to think? 

A high-level CDC whistleblower has admitted to destroying data linking vaccines to autism, but no national media covered it, and "VAXXED", a new documentary about it, has been yanked from the Tribeca Film Festival.

The subject is taboo, but there's more to the story than you might think.

In this first installment of our 4-interview series, the producer of the documentary Del Bigtree (@dlbigtree) tells his side of the story, and explains why calling discredited and much-maligned Doctor Andrew Wakefield "The Father of the Vaccine Movement" may be a misnomer.

Coming soon:

Interview 2 - with Investigative Journalist Brian Deer

Interview 3 -with Lou Conte & Mary Holland

Hopefully by now you've all binge-watched "MAKING A MURDERER" on Netflix, the addictive 10-part documentary about the controversial Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey trials in Manitowoc County... if you haven't, go do that now and come back. Spoilers ahead.

Today we talk to Brian Mccorkle, a Wisconsin blogger who followed the trial as it happened and is here to provide the local perspective on the case as it went down.

"It could happen to any one of us."

Tamir Rice was a 12 year-old black child with a toy playing in the park. Someone called the cops on him, cops with emotional issues killed him within seconds of their arrival - on video - yet nobody will ever be punished. The cops are still cops.

Wesley Lowery (@WesleyLowery), who covers police brutality/race issues for the Washington Post, helps us put this case, and the issue in general, in perspective.

"We grow up in a culture and a society that criminalizes black men... being conscious of that is something that potentially helps all of us." - Wesley Lowery

Rabia Chaudry (@rabiasquared), an attorney, a mother, a wife, and the original source of the case at the heart of the global podcast phenomenon "SERIAL", talks about what it's like to be a Muslim in America today- with people like Donald Trump doing their best to make them feel unwanted in their own home.

"My little one is 7... I don't want her to get it, I don't want her to know about it. I don't want her to feel like her country hates her." - Rabia

These are scary times we're living in, but with Trump calling for a ban on Muslims and gifting ISIS more propaganda material than they could ever have hoped for, and 65% of Republicans supporting him, it's more essential than ever we resist the urge to blame all Muslims for the actions of these extremists.

CJ Werleman (@CJWerleman) returns to explain why, and talk about how witnessing a bomb blast in 2005 framed his understanding of these issues. Tune in for fun insights like:

"I think when history looks back on this period they'll say World War 3 started in 2015." - CJ Werleman

Half of Syria has fled the country, which is now a war zone. 11 million are displaced. Thousands flood into Europe each day.

We hear about it, but what is it really like for those living through it? Isabeau Doucet (@IsabeauD_) of Al Jazeera Digital (@AJPlus) went over there to be with some of the refugees on their journey to a brighter tomorrow, and she's here to tell us about it.

"Refugees shouldn't be dealt with as a security threat... It's a humanitarian crisis." - Isabeau

Back in April, right before the NBA playoffs, the #1 seed Atlanta Hawks' Lebron-stopper Thabo Sefolosha had his leg broken and his season ended by out-of-control NYC cops with Napoleon complexes. The Hawks proceeded to get swept without him. 

This month, Thabo refused a plea deal, took it to trial, and dunked on their heads. Next hopefully he'll sue their asses. Oddly, not many are covering this story, but Dan O'Sullivan (@Bro_Pair) of Vice Sports is, and he's here to talk to us about it.

Russian planes are now dropping bombs in Syria. Putin claims to be bombing ISIS, but really he's bombing Syrian "rebels" who oppose President Assad- a brutal dictator most agree has to go away for there to be any stability in the country.

So why is Putin doing this? Mikey Kay (@MikeyKayNYC), formerly a British chopper pilot who flew in Iraq in Afghanistan, now a foreign correspondent for MSNBC and others, explains.

Former United States ambassador to Iraq Joe Wilson talks about how the Bush administration exposed the identity of his wife Valerie Plame, a covert CIA agent, in retaliation for his having exposed their lies about Saddam and the WMD's.

Joe also explains his support for the Iran Deal, and why Republicans are "engaged in sedition" and not fit to lead.
