Episode Date
Kara Swisher, Max Rose, Monica Trannel & Mitch McConnell

Kara Swisher the host of Pivot & On With Kara Swisher drops by to give her take on the latest going-ons of powerful men who won’t stop making things worse, as well as how to see the tech anti-trust laws playing out in congress. Then we’re joined by two candidates taking on some of MAGA’s worst candidates.

White House Chief Of Staff Ron Klain, Rick Wilson & Tim O’Brien

On the first episode of the pod we’re lucky enough to be joined by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. He tells us how the White House makes decisions to keep a big tent party happy, and how to deal with the unprecedented constant rabble-rousing of a former president pretending he is still the ruler of the free world. We also have the reunion that political junkies have been waiting for—after 20 months of being apart, Rick Wilson & Molly Jong-Fast get the band back together to discuss the midterms and Donald Trump’s very bad week. If that weren’t enough, Bloomberg Opinion editor and long-time Trump business expert Tim O’Brien breaks down the former president’s mounting legal troubles. Oh yeah, and we also learn what Trump’s dance moves are like when no one is watching.
