Our Editor's Take

Political comedy has come into its own over the last couple of years. Stand Up! with Pete Dominick is a political comedy podcast whose host is an actual comedian. Many political comedy podcasts claim to be funny but are more austere than they would like to admit. One of the things that makes this show work so well is its host, Pete Dominick.

Stand Up! with Pete Dominick shows the host's comedic skills. Dominick has been performing comedy as a professional for close to two decades. And while he may not be a household name, he has worked with several of them over his long career. He was the warmup comic on The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert. Dominick would also work as a warmup comic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He also opens for comic Artie Lange as well.

Dominick has performed at college campuses and comedy clubs throughout the United States. It's not hard to see why. He is funny, quick, and relatable. He also has a desire to keep himself on even footing with the audience. Those characteristics result in a show that feels fun instead of something akin to a lecture.

Dominick is not alone on the show, though. He often has a guest who is there to help him learn more about the subject of the day. Or sometimes, they are there to add to the laughter. Past guests include Ophira Eisenberg, Wajahat Ali, and David Cay Johnston. Peter Coyote and Ray Suarez have also guested. Listeners can never be sure of who will show up on this podcast.

Stand Up! with Pete Dominick premieres new episodes every weekday. For those looking to laugh and learn, this podcast is a great place to start.

Please subscribe now for as little as 5$ and gain access to a community of over 700 awesome, curious, kind, funny, brilliant, generous souls 10 mins I adore Sam Youngman and his daily newsletter, Today's Big Stuff which is my favorite! Sam is a veteran political campaign reporter and former White House correspondent. Youngman covered the presidential campaigns of 2004, 2008 and 2012, countless U.S. House and Senate races, and the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama while working for The Hill, Reuters and other news organizations. A native of Kentucky, Youngman has a BA in journalism from Western Kentucky University and now lives in Los Angeles. Today’s Big Stuff is a Monday through Friday newsletter for progressive Americans who want to save their democracy while making fun of people like Donald Trump Jr. and Lauren Boebert who might actually be the same, really dumb person. . Today’s Big Stuff (TBS) was founded in early 2019 by “Ready for Hillary” creator and Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko and former White House correspondent and veteran campaign reporter Sam Youngman. What started as a small clip service for six people, quickly expanded as thousands of stressed out Americans searched for a news source that tells it how it is — with lots of sick jokes and cuss words. In 2020, the more than 75,000 members of the Big Stuff community — also known as Sexy Patriots and Big Stufferinoes — mobilized along with 81 million other Americans to send Donald Trump crying back to Mar-a-Lago leaving a trail of urine along the way. And we’re just getting started. If laughter is the best medicine, then TBS is like an injection of bleach right to the fucking face. Sign up and don’t forget to share with your friends who share your twisted senses of humor and righteous outrage! 31 minutes Dan Becker, Director of the Safe Climate Transport Campaign works in the Climate Law Institute. Dan began his career at Environmental Action, MassPIRG and Public Citizen’s Congress Watch and fought in Congress for the Clean Air Act, CAFE standards, Superfund and other responsible energy policies. He led the clean-car fight, beginning in 1989, as director of Sierra Club’s Global Warming and Energy Program and then as director of the Safe Climate Campaign. He helped win and defend the Obama Clean Car Standard and has been named one of the world’s 28 “Climate Heroes” by Rolling Stone magazine and Salon.com.

A common refrain erupts at each new atrocity: This isn’t who we are. In American Rule, Jared Yates Sexton upends those convenient fictions by laying bare the foundational myths at the heart of our collective American imagination. From the very origins of this nation, Americans in power have abused and subjugated others; enabling that corruption are the many myths of American exceptionalism and steadfast values, which are fed to the public and repeated across generations. Working through each era of American growth and change, Sexton weaves together the origins and perpetuation of these narratives still in the public memory, and the acts we have chosen to forget.  Stirring, deeply researched, and disturbingly familiar, American Rule is a call to examine our own misconceptions of what it means, and has always meant, to be an American.   listen and subscribe to Jared's Podcast  subscribe to his substack newsletter      Pete on Tik Tok Pete on YouTube Pete on Twitter Pete On Instagram Pete Personal FB page Stand Up with Pete FB page All things Jon Carroll  Follow and Support Pete Coe

Although he spoke no English, he dedicated himself to his adopted land, striving for the American dream. Determined to be a success story, he joined the army to pay for college. He saw action in Iraq and returned home with PTSD. Believing in the promise of our government, he focused on healing himself and supporting his family. His hard work paid off when he landed a coveted position with the United States Capitol Police and rose to the rank of sergeant. January 6, 2021, changed everything. When insurrectionists stormed the Capitol, Gonell bravely faced down the mob attempting to thwart the peaceful transfer of power. The brutal injuries he sustained that day would end his career in law enforcement. But when some of the very people he put his life on the line to protect downplayed or denied the truth of that day, he chose to speak out against the injustice done to him and the country. Chronicling what it means to live a life of conviction, one that adheres to the best ideas of our democracy, American Shield is a bold testament to the power of truth, justice, and accountability from a highly decorated officer and immigrant who exemplifies the greatest aspirations of a grateful nation.
