The Majority Report with Sam Seder

It's a special edition of the Majority Report: The MR Crew are celebrating the life of Michael Brooks, as his 40TH BIRTHDAY was yesterday. They're joined by a number of friends and former guests of The Michael Brooks Show to commemorate.

Guests on the show today: Lisha Brooks, Michael's sister; Luke Mayville of Reclaim Idaho, TV, film, and video producer Artesia Balthrop, Drew Mikhael, scholar in the Centre for the Study of Ethnic Conflict at Queen’s University Belfast, Ben Burgis, columnist at Jacobin and host of Give Them An Argument With Ben Burgis, and Bhaskar Sunkara, president of The Nation. Plus, some birthday wishes from other friends!

First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Trump’s tampering in Georgia, the civil war amongst his Co-Conspirators, the failures behind the Hawaii wildfires, the Wisconsin GOP’s attack on the state Supreme Court, a potential Assange plea deal, and fascist attacks on education, before diving into the recent raiding of a Kansas Newspaper by local police. Then, Sam, Emma, and the MR Crew are joined by countless guests as they share stories of the beauty, joy, strength, and righteousness that Michael brought into their lives, and the lives of countless others – touching on how he constantly welcomed people into his life, delivered masterful impersonations and impressions, influenced and connected with the politics of strangers and friends alike, grew his vision of cosmopolitan socialism, and so much more.
