President Obama gave his end of the year press conference and it's all getting too real. Tochi & Zell do a nominees breakdown on Rex Tillerson (State), Elaine Chao (Transportation), Rick Perry (Energy), and David Friedman (Am. to Israel). Tochi forces Zell into a conversation about Kayne's visit to Trump Tower. And they both share their reactions to Ta-Nehisi Coates' My President Was Black article in The Atlantic.

Tochi & Zell tell shocking stories of finding Trump supporters in their own families. Then, they interview Native American playwright/lawyer/activist Mary Kathryn Nagle on her work with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, reports from the Dakota Access Pipeline protest (#NoDAPl), and what the incoming administration could mean for Indians and their sovereign rights.
Winter is coming to the White House as the president-elect begins to appointment members of his cabinet and nominate an array of racists department heads; both old school and new. Tochi and Zell break down the histories of Trump's White Walkers, define "whiteness" and white nationalism, and try to find the middle ground between normalization v. coup d'état.
Thanks to the listeners who let me know there was an audio issue with the last upload. I was able to fix it, so if you didn't hear the show all the way through you can on this one. If you already listened, please do the world a favor and call the House Oversight Committee to support a bi-partisan review of Trump's financials and (definite) conflicts of interest. That number's (202) 225-5074.
