I have been a fan of Cenk Uygur & the Young Turks for some time now. Cenk is one of my key sources for Progressive news & podcast enjoyment on my ride to work. He and the crew help to spice up my now drab cubicle life. As with any other human being, we do not always agree, ie: Black Lives Matter action at Netroots. He came around. But, I was a one-man boycott for a couple of weeks. As a podcast freeloader, I sure showed him.
My introduction to Bernie Sanders and his firebrand style of politics came through TYT. Cenk has interviewed Bernie a few times over the years. It’s always informative, spirited & exciting. Never disappointing.
Since Bernie started running to be the next POTUS, I have been craving a reunion. Mainstream news sources like CNN, MSNBC & Fox never ask the right questions. Only three shows in my podcast rotation really would or could ask those questions- TYT, Majority Report & Progressive Army flagship The Benjamin Dixon Show. Thom Hartman, Chris Hayes & Rachel Maddow could as well. But, they may be tethered by their large network affiliations.
This interview was a tour de force. It will always be among Cenk’s best interviews for me. Press play and soak in all this Progressive Goodness.
