E024 • When it comes to analyzing Donald Trump, TNT’s Charles Barkley beats the Newshour’s David Brooks • 37:18

Today’s theme is ‘Evolution.’ Every day the establishment confronts a world where anyone can have their own show! As candidates like Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump take their case directly to their millions of rabid followers, a defining characteristic of the 2016 Presidential Auction is that top-of-mind media outlets are no longer able to crown winners and losers. To demonstrate this in stark, audible terms, Whitneyland combed through the past six months of the PBS Newshour’s David Brooks’ analysis of Donald Trump. Brooks’ analytical evolution — from “the circus is in town” to  “he can’t be underestimated” — is documented in a 10 minute package beginning on Friday, July 19th and ending 26 weeks later on Friday, December 11th. Then compare Brooks — on substance and style — with the real-world remarks of NBA analyst Charles Barkley. Who speaks to you and who sounds institutionalized? We also hear from Bernie Sanders, Jimmy Fallon and wrap this episode with the Great British Barbershop Boys performance of The Evolution of Song, which we guarantee to be the best 11 minutes of your week!

E023 • Donald Trump’s Bunker Mentality, His Enabling, Codependent Adult Children, and The Perfect End To The Republic • 30:38


How old were you when Dad stopped being cool? Today you’re going to hear that Donald Trump’s codependent, enabling, apologist adult children – Ivanka, Tiffany, Eric and Donny Jr — can only think of one thing they would change about dear ol’ Dad. This episode is chock full of production value with loads of laughs and insight, including three hilarious, insightful mashups: Trump/Sanders, Trump/Trump Kids, and Trump/Archie Bunker, who were apparently separated at birth. One of our tightest episodes to date! Enjoy!

E022 • In Your Name: The Laquan McDonald Murder • Chi-Raq • Spike Lee • #BlackLivesMatter • Podcast • 38:14


All roads lead to official misconduct, cover-up, millions in hush money and an apparent criminal conspiracy in Chicago. This is the story of how a whistleblower, two independent reporters, and a volunteer lawyer obtained the Laquan McDonald video, thereby setting off a chain of political events with the making of a feature film. We wrap this episode with comedian Bill Burr’s future classic set on guns and a cut from the soundtrack of Spike Lee’s ‘Chi-Raq’: ‘Born In Chicago’ by Bruce Hornsby and The Noisemakers (featuring Eryn Allen Kane & Sasha Go Hard).

E021 • Donald Trump: The Most Talented Bigot In Politics • Atkinson NH • Full Speech + Q&A • Podcast • 80:08



In the last episode we featured the entirety of a fascinating appearance by Bernie Sanders at Georgetown University. Today we feature an equally fascinating appearance by Donald Trump in Atkinson NH. If the New Hampshire Primary were held today there is a very good chance Sanders and Trump would win their respective contests. This is not your typical Trump rally. It is mostly the audience peppering Trump with questions and Trump completely at ease, no prompter, no handlers. No matter your politics, this is a unique opportunity to listen to Trump working a room. ~Transcript

E020 • Bernie Sanders • Democratic Socialism • Georgetown University • Full Speech + Q&A • FDR • #FeelTheBern • Podcast • 94:56




Earlier today Bernie Sanders gave a speech about so-called Democratic Socialism at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. Sanders cites FDR and Martin Luther King as precedent for his political philosophy. Sanders also ties political rights to economic well-being. This is not his normal stump speech. This speech could be a defining event in what we like to refer to around here as the 2016 Presidential Auction. We decided it made sense to post the entire speech here so we can refer to it in future episodes and so it is readily accessible and portable for citizens who rely heavily on audio podcasts for their news and information. Sanders’ speech is, accordingly, provided in full, together with the follow-up Q & A session. ~Transcript

E019 • Macroagression: Donald Trump, Melissa Click & ISIS Muscle Reporters • Chris Hedges ‘War Is A Force That Gives Us Meaning’ • Paris Terrorism • François Hollande • George Carlin, Bill Hicks, M’Bala M’Bala • Dixie Chicks, Toby Keith • 53:52


In this emotionally charged episode of Whitneyland, as French President François Hollande channels George W. Bush in response to acts of terror in Paris, we explore the exercise of individual agency against the backdrop of aggressive actions taken against reporters by the Ferguson police, a college professor at the University of Missouri and by members of ISIS. This episode rests in part, on interpretive readings by war reporter, activist, author, and Presbyterian minister Chris Hedges, who unwittingly verifies the satirical war commentary of comedians, George Carlin and Bill Hicks. We also hear from authors, Warsan Shire, Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between The World and Me), ESPN stringer and student journalist, Tim Tai, Professors Melissa Click and Derald Wing Sue,  French Muslim comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, musicians Toby Keith and the Dixie Chicks, and former President George W. Bush’s September 20th, 2001 speech before a joint session of Congress. ~Transcript

E018 • #BlackLivesMatter, White Lives Matter More, Football Matter$ Mo$t Of All • #ConcernedStudent1950 • Mizzou Football Strike • Jonathan Butler Hunger Strike • 37:40

“Show me the money!” Set against the backdrop of University of Missouri grad student, Jonathan Butler’s hunger strike, the football team’s refusal to play BYU, and the resignation of President Timothy M. Wolfe, we examine the history of sports-related, peaceful resistance and the social, economic, psychological and political impact of football in the United States, all while amplifying the potential — in a wired world — for any individual to change anything for the better. Along the way we hear from plaintiffs, the Buffalo Jill’s and Ed O’Bannon, Olympic Gold Medalists, Muhammad Ali and Tommie Smith, author/commentators, William F. Buckley, Dave Zirin (What’s My Name Fool) and Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between The World And Me), actor, Billy Bob Thornton, singer/songwriter Gus Brett (Friday Night Lights, Party Rock Anthem, Clear Eyes Full Heart Can’t Lose), Mizzou athletic director, Mack Rhoades, coach, Gary Pinkel, First Amendment opponent, Melissa Click, and Chris Rock. ~Transcript

E017 • Appearances Can Be Deceiving: SNL, Donald Trump, Jeb Bush & The Politics Of Humor; LBJ Hits On Jackie Kennedy • 42:07

Jeb! will never be the President. Why? Because, unlike his father and his brother, he does not have a discernible sense of humor. Today, for starters, you better be able to land a punchline and do sketch comedy. In another five star episode of Whitneyland, we track the nine TV presidents from Kennedy to Obama, hilariously documenting with many twists and turns, how humor, or the lack thereof, can make or break a president. Perhaps more significantly, LBJ hits on Jackie Kennedy within a month of her husband’s assassination! Finally, the show ends with with an exclusive and shocking bit of presidential oratorical history. We also hear from comedians Dana Carvey, Bill Maher, David Letterman, Rosanne, Drew Carey, Jerry Seinfeld, talk show hosts, Jack Paar and Stephen Colbert, politicians, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, John Kasich, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, and Jeb Bush, and the “executive producer” of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, Michael Deaver, and former First Lady, Jackie Kennedy. ~Transcript

E016 • Intended Consequences: Obama Goes To Prison; Reagan On V.P. Bush’s Drug Problem; Criminal Justice Reform; Ban The Box • 56:37

Today Whitneyland breaks news! According to Ronald Reagan — caught on tape — his then-Vice President George Bush had a drug problem! That’s enough show for most people, but we don’t stop there. The rest of today’s show is set against the backdrop of Barack Obama’s visit to Federal prison and my darkly hilarious, true, personal story about the gyrations I had to go through to legally support my family as a father with a felony conviction. We also hear from Richard Nixon and civil liberties advocate, Attorney Bryan Stevenson. ~Transcript
