We now know that AT&T nearly fully funded OANN because they "needed another right-wing news channel." And it just so happens a multi-millionaire who ran a channel called WealthTV (!) was able to set one up in no time. Covid conspiracies, the Big Lie and all kinds of insanity then ensued. A taste of the *Patreon Only* bonus bish. Listen now on an exclusive RSS feed by becoming a patron at just $2 a month: www.patreon.com/bitchuationroom.

*TEASER* Bonus Discussion Ep 106: Occupy Made Activism Mainstream

September 27, 2021

Occupy vs. Obama, police repression, and whether or not there should have been demands made by organizers.

Occupy Wall Street Lives On with Sonny Singh & Nato Green (Ep 106)

Occupy Wall Street Lives On with Sonny Singh & Nato Green (Ep 106)

September 27, 2021
It was anti-capitalist mass direct action. How did it even happen? Looking back at ten years since Occupy Wall Street, the lasting legacy of a “leaderless” movement with no central demands was actually far greater than anyone could have imagined. It was a moment of resistance, of saying enough is enough. Social justice educator Sonny Singh and comedian Nato Green join Francesca to discuss the lessons of Occupy Wall Street and the conditions that were ripe for such an unprecedented action. Plus the GOP-led Arizona election audit goes awry and AOC votes “present” on a billion dollars for Israel’s Iron Dome. Finally, imagining a world without Facebook. And a BONUS discussion for *PATRONS ONLY*, more discussion of Occupy: what were the internal struggles, how did the police ultimately win, and the openings for social movements when fascism is out of the way.

The Conservative Brain with Jesse Fernandez & Dr. Danna Young (Ep104)

September 15, 2021
How can we lure loved ones away from the conspiracy theory dark side? Dr. Danna Young joins the podcast to discuss how to put away the quick quips and jokes and actually listen to those who we disagree with. Plus, comedian Jesse Fernandez on 20 years since 9-11 and George W. Bush somehow is speaking not from a prison cell, dogs that can smell Covid, and the "Tax the Rich" dress. What do we make of it? Performative or powerful, neither or both? Finally a new game: "Would you/wouldn't you?" 
 
Featuring: 
Jesse Fernandez, comedian & writer 
 
Dr. Dannagal Young, professor of communications & political science
