#164 - The United States Of Trauma show art #164 - The United States Of Trauma

Winners and Losers Show

First recording goofed; this is the 2nd attempt (so it's shorter than usual, which is probably good news.) In this ep, Hank rambles about recent upticks in the nightmare factory that is America. Lots of the hits in this one: brutal society, individualism, childhood trauma, capitalism, Hank's inquiry into his own mental conditions and swearing!   Recorded 06.27.22 (Note: opinions subject to being forgotten)   โ–ผโ–ผโ–ผ FOLLOW!

#163 - Seeking Sister-Wives & Joe Biden On Jimmy Kimmel show art #163 - Seeking Sister-Wives & Joe Biden On Jimmy Kimmel

Winners and Losers Show

A Mormon show on Hulu converts Hank and we watch Joe Biden's appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show (19:52) in which he proves over and over why he's the worst person for the job. Highlights include defending Mitch McConnell, pointing to biracial commercials as a sign of progress and overall being an out-of-touch figurehead for a sclerotic gerontocracy racing towards fascism and collapse. Plus the usual rambling about how capitalism sucks.   Recorded 06.14.22 Note: opinions subject to being forgotten.   READ, WATCH, LISTEN, LEARN Biden on Kimmel | Jun 8 2022 ...

Winners and Losers Show

Updates on Hank's arms, his recent turn to TikTok, how money is an abstraction of time, how America getting back to "normal" means getting back to dismissing others and Hank sifts through a pile of political mailers, including one from his former co-worker Michael Shure of The Young Turks, who has been silent about TYT's union-busting, which is the perfect way to lose Hank's vote.   Recorded 06.23.22   ๐Ÿ Š๐Ÿ Š๐Ÿ Š READ, WATCH, LISTEN & LEARN ๐Ÿ ˆ๐Ÿ ˆ๐Ÿ ˆ   โ–ผโ–ผโ–ผ FOLLOW!

Winners and Losers Show

The despair era continues as blood, stress and fascism rapidly accumulate in our land of horrors. On the personal side, Hank's out of work from his arms giving out and is on a journey into the worker's comp system. Don't worry; he bought a plant and might go cottagecore.   Recorded 05.25.22   ๐Ÿ Š๐Ÿ Š๐Ÿ Š READ, WATCH, LISTEN & LEARN ๐Ÿ ˆ๐Ÿ ˆ๐Ÿ ˆ   โ–ผโ–ผโ–ผ FOLLOW!

Winners and Losers Show

A haunted shoe disturbs less than Jimmy Fallon's ape. Impoverished parenting hurts baby brains, a study shows, prompting a dive into the foundation of Hank's lefty politics โ€”preventing childhood trauma and the horror of a world that has no interest in stopping it.   Recorded 01.25.22   ๐Ÿ Š๐Ÿ Š๐Ÿ Š READ, WATCH, LISTEN & LEARN ๐Ÿ ˆ๐Ÿ ˆ๐Ÿ ˆ Line Goes Up โ€“ The Problem With NFTs on Folding Ideas: Study: Cash aid to poor mothers improved babies' brain functioning: https://www.axios.com/study-cash-payment-baby-brain-development-5ad61fc5-be81-49c8-8297-9e425c7a713b.html  ...

Winners and Losers Show

Skip to 24:00 to bypass the opening ramble.   Video version:   As a former employee of TYT who was part of the union-organizing effort, I was dismayed when the company answered the union with aggressive union-busting tactics, first by rejecting card check, then using nearly every tactic in the union-busting playbook; but especially when they spread a deliberate lie that their workers were part of a conspiracy by Cenk Uygur's political opponent, Christy Smith, to harm his upcoming election for US House of Representatives in CA-25.   Our efforts began several months before Cenk...
