Have you checked out the Sexy Liberal Podcast Network?

I see it was posted a few weeks ago, but itís worth promoting until it becomes a ubiquitous DU community resource for progressive news, information, insight, analysis and humor.

It offers podcasts from progressive luminaries like John Fugelsang, Bob Cesca, Ryan Grimm (Proud Resister), Jody Hamilton, Frangela, Dean Obeidallah, Rude Pundit, Randi Rhodes, and Stephanie Miller. With support, they aspire to add more podcasters and succeed where Air America failed.

The first half of this Hidden Brain podcast will appeal to anyone interested in the psychological and biological factors in our great national divide. The second half is interesting too:

ďMany of us intuitively feel that the bitter partisanship of American politics is bad for our nation. So should we be concerned about the health of our democracy? This week on Hidden Brain, we revisit two of our favorite conversations about U.S. politics. We start by talking with political scientist John Hibbing about the psychological differences between liberals and conservatives. Then, we explore the role of conflict in democracy with historian David Moss.Ē

ďToday, you, Mr. President, are the only person in the country with the moral authority and the political influence to stop Trumpís dismantling of our republic. Other Republican leaders wonít do it. They demonstrated over the first two years of the Trump era that they have no honor, no integrity and no fealty to our way of government. And no Democrat can pierce the miasma of right-wing propaganda to muster the moral outrage of Republican voters and Trumpís MAGAloids. They will dismiss any calls for Trumpís removal made by Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, any Democrat now on the national stage.Ē
