Sam hosts David Dayen (@ddayen), Executive Editor at the American Prospect, to discuss his new book Monopolized: Life in the Age of Corporate Power, which details how a small collection of corporations have come to dominate every aspect of our lives.

On today's show: Asked about "cancel culture," NDAA and confederate named bases, Trump explains he won't budge on base names.

David Dayen (@ddayen), Executive Editor at the American Prospect, joins Sam to discuss his new book Monopolized: Life in the Age of Corporate Power. From the airlines we fly on, to the internet companies we use, to the banks that control our money, much of American life is now dominated by a handful of large corporations. Dayen examines how things progressed to this point, and makes an argument for the resurrection of antitrust legislation as an effective way of dealing with corporate monopolies.

On the fun half: Trump says Biden/Sanders want to defund the police, Wallace in studio after interview says Biden wants to increase police funding. New Fox News poll: Trump says he's not losing, polls are fake, says he's winning in swing states, says Biden can't put 2 sentences together. Ben Shapiro says Trump's Covid policy has been good, media to blame for its focus on his rhetoric. Surgeon General on Fox & Friends imploring Americans to wear a mask, won't call for a federal mandate. MS Governor struggles to defend lack of statewide mask mandate: ‘it’s complicated.’ Harpers letter drafter says signers voted against Glenn Greenwald signing the Harpers letter.

Sam hosts Princeton historian Julian Zelizer to discuss his new book, Burning Down the House: Newt Gingrich, the Fall of a Speaker, and the Rise of the New Republican Party. 

Zelizer and Sam begin their conversation with Newt's unconventional upbringing, including his marriage to his high school math teacher. Plus, his early entry into elected office and his pragmatic politics morphed into a career centered on partisan power. Zelizer explains how Gingrich set out to reshape and take back the House through anti-establishment rhetoric against the Democrats in the House for the first time in 42 years. Sam and Zelizer consider the effectiveness of running against "corruption" in Washington and the example of Speaker of the House Jim Wright. The two compare and contrast the GOP's unity and the Democratic party's disconnect and how it impacts each party's ability to legislate. And finally, Zelizer and Sam conclude their conversation investigating whether or not the parties have moved on from the Gingrich era of political power. 

And in the Fun Half: Trump demands schools reopen, Stephen J Gould recommended reading, Brian Kilmeade doesn't understand how Fox has abetted the COVID crisis, Tucker Carlson says masks don't prevent the virus's spread in July 2020, Tucker Carlson's white supremacist head writer, runoffs in Texas, why Elizabeth Warren won't deliver the youth vote for Biden, Trump saved the US oil industry, plus your calls and IMs!

Stephanie Kelton (@StephanieKelton) joins Sam to discuss her new book, "The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People's Economy." To those who favor a robust welfare state bolstered by generous federal spending, "how are you going to pay for it?" is an all-too-familiar rejoinder. But what if that question were irrelevant? In her latest work on modern monetary theory, or MMT, Kelton lays out the case for a new understanding of money and taxes that could free up the federal government to disregard the deficit in service of the public good.

For members,  the 11/13/12 inteview with Michael Hastings on The Real David Petraeus Scandals.

Frank Smyth joins Sam to discuss his new book, "The NRA: The Unauthorized History." The NRA is one of the three most powerful lobbying groups in Washington, DC, consistently opposing restrictions on gun ownership and enjoying a mutually beneficial relationship with Trump and the GOP. But it has not always been this way. In this book, Smyth traces the history of the organization, from its surprising roots in post-Civil War New York City, to the "Cincinnati Revolt” of 1977 that changed its political direction, to the rabidly reactionary force it is today.

Greg Mitchell joins Sam to discuss his new book, The Beginning or the End: How Hollywood―and America―Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. In 1945, multiple Hollywood studios set out to make films about the advent of the atomic bomb — including one written by Ayn Rand. In this book, Mitchell tells the story of how President Truman and the military successfully pressured Hollywood to drain these films of all critique, revealing how the government molded culture into propaganda in postwar America.

And for members: Sam talks with late journalist Michael Hastings on Stanley McCrystal.
