Our beloved host Dan is out this week due to a bad ass ski injury. His Olympic dreams are officially over - but that doesn't mean you have to suffer without Blacksite Podcast! Ryan interviews State senator Todd Weiler and Representative Joel Briscoe about Utah Politics.
Dan is gone! Temporarily. It's up to Courtney to helm the podcast. We discuss Trump's 'Bill of Love' to DACA recipients, North Carolina ruling gerrymandering unconstitutional, and Ben McAdams raising a half million dollars despite not appearing on Blacksite Podcast. Just imagine how much more money he would have raised if he had just appeared on Blacksite! Ryan and Bob also panel. Follow-up: Courtney never got to watch IT on Blu Ray that night.
It took us two days into the New Year, but it finally happened - TRUMP ESCALATED NUCLEAR TENSIONS AGAIN! Oh, and famed senator and sometimes songwriter Orrin Hatch announced his retirement after forty years in the senate and zero years on the billboard top 100. We talk with Ken Whitaker about how to be better media consumers. We take a look at how we can lower our expectations about things getting better - yet maintain that wonderful, optimistic glow about us! Ryan and Courtney also panel.
