Isaiah Martin, the potential “next Gen Z member of Congress” launched his campaign this week to both fanfare and criticism. Adam Johnson, co-host of Citations Needed joined us to break down the launch, the hollowness in “generational politics” and more.
We also get into the looming government shutdown and how, yet again, social safety net programs are on the chopping block. We also talk about Bill Maher calling for the writers strike to end and his comments that writers’ demands are “kooky.”
