"What's so valuable about human attention?" I ask Ron Placone, comedian, filmmaker, political commentator, horizontal sleeper and lover of cats and cat love. We talk about the challenges of an artistic career in a world run by inhuman monsters, swap atheism origin stories, eco-socialism vs barbarism and have an honest manly discussion about our feelings and love for cats while I try to bully Ron into adopting mine.

Not gonna lie: the opening is kind of a mess. After rambling about language barriers, mold, expired food and a plant, TYT project updates, a former Steven Crowder employee comes forward on free speech grounds and Joe Biden's latest healthcare lie brings up the 2016 reporting that Barack Obama had offered to help Joe Biden with expenses related to his son Beau Biden's terminal illnesses and sparks a lot of thoughts about the moral and cosmic abomination that is healthcare in the United States.

Winners and Losers Show

"Tell The Truth, Cenk" is my two-part documentary about The Young Turks' union-busting and ensuing cover-up. Because I was involved and had a very unique vantage point, plus as an aspiring filmmaker and professional video editor, I decided to correct the record and have spent the last two-and-a-half years working on this in secret. So glad to finally be able to talk about it. It is not yet complete and I am asking for support to continue the project. Please consider helping out.
