EHave you ever been thrown out of a Trump Rally? Statistically probably not! But Arish Singh has! Arish (@arishish) opens up about the issues of mischaracterizing identity politics and being a "political comedian" without constantly working on your "brand." Then we have a really great interview the day after the NY primary with the hardworking Francisco Diez of the NYC DSA Electoral working group. The gang takes the opportunity to discuss winning elections, losing elections, and very briefly if cars are a type of horse. Sorry about the clicking sound in the last 10 minutes! We are working on it!
