Van Orden AWOL for a New Speaker (Hour 1)

October 26, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

We’ll review how the far-right fringe of House Republicans were able to finally win the Speaker’s chair—even without the help of Rep. Derrick Van Orden who is still puzzling many by being out of the country instead of doing his job in Washington. And Joe Zepecki not only talks about political news of the week, […]

Last Gasp or Ominous Sign? (Hour 1)

October 19, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

This week’s events in Madison and Washington, DC show how elected Republicans have taken their party as far to the extreme right as anything we’ve seen in our nation’s history. Is it a harbinger of things to come—if more voters embrace authoritarian actions? Or is the dying gasp of a political fringe that’s gotten too […]

An Unspecial Special Session (Hour 1)

October 12, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

So far, the fall session of the Legislature and the special session called by Gov. Tony Evers have little to show for themselves. Republicans aren’t making any progress on bills that would address the workforce shortage, childcare issues, or a real middle class tax cut. But they will take action today on three anti-trans bills, […]

A Glimmer of Legislative Hope (Hour 1)

September 21, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

To the surprise of many, Republicans did not bring a quick end to Gov. Tony Evers’ request for a special session to focus on the child care crisis and a middle class tax cut. We’ll talk to Joe Zepecki about that and the role of Wisconsin members of Congress in the fight to avoid (or […]

I Call Shenanigans (Hour 1)

September 14, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

A Republican leader changes course and embraces a reform to the political process. In some instances that would garner praise and applause. But not for Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, who today will try to fast-track a half-hearted proposal to change how legislative maps are drawn in order to stop any real reform that could come […]

The Impeachment Hail Mary (Hour 1)

September 7, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

For a party that has tried nullifying past election results, even this move would be drastic—trying to impeach a newly-elected state Supreme Court justice. We’ll talk to Joe Zepecki about whether Republicans are bluffing in their threat to try to undo the will of the voters who overwhelmingly elected Janet Protasiewicz less than six months […]

Presidential Caliber? It’s Debatable. (Hour 1)

August 24, 2023 at 07:00:00 AM UTC

We review last night’s first Republican presidential primary debate in Milwaukee with Joe Zepecki.

August 23, 2023 at 06:00:00 PM UTC

Dom and Crute are joined Maggie Daun, host of the Maggie Daun Show, to ask about how Trump can have such a lead while under 91 indictments. Then, Joe Zapecki joins the show to help decide whether or not it’s worse if Trump is or is not convicted.
