New Normal: When it comes to symbols, I’m with George Carlin: I leave symbols to the symbol-minded. That said: It’s one thing for the Confederate Flag to come down. It’s another for the Rainbow Flag to go up that same week. Odds are like one in some number with more zeros than the Republican Party. Do not miss my debate with our very special guest, Chief Justice John Roberts. The result will render your slack-jawed.

Against the backdrop of Donald Trump’s preference for soldiers who have not been captured, this week’s episode examines who is and who is not captured. Captured by money and fake outrage? Country singer Luke Bryan and comedian Steve Harvey. Not captured? Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. Unlike John McCain and Lindsey Graham who are captured by lobbyists and fake outrage, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are not captured. They are independent.

E002 • My Debate With Chief Justice John Roberts

Mark Whitney; Chief Justice John Roberts

Attorney David Boies

When it comes to symbols, I’m with George Carlin: I leave symbols to the symbol-minded. That said: It’s one thing for the Confederate Flag to come down. It’s another for the Rainbow Flag to go up that same week. Odds are like one in some number with more zeros than the Republican Party. Do not miss my debate with our very special guest, Chief Justice John Roberts. The result will render your slack-jawed. Also featured — from the 2016 Presidential Auction — Lindsey Graham, Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie and Donald Trump. If that’s not enough, Attorney David Boies explains: (a) why every constitutional decision is, by definition, anti-democracy and (b) why that’s a good thing! /// Timestamped Transcript ///

E001 • Introducing Mark Whitney

The best way to introduce myself is for you to listen to my hilarious, award-winning, one-man show, Fool For A Client, about that one time, when facing 225 years in Federal prison, I decided the right answer was to represent myself. No: I am not making this up. I’ve written and toured three one-man shows and I am currently writing my fourth show which I plan to tour next year. But, I may never write another show as good as FFAC. This show was recorded at the iconic Studio Theatre in Washington D.C. in 2010. If you prefer to watch, the video is embedded in the sidebar.
