This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features two great guests.
Author, writer extraordinaire, and friend of the podcast "Champion" Joe Lansdale stops by to share his thoughts on Donald Trump's winning the White House, if Trump's voters are stupid, ignorant, racist or all three, and updates us on Season Two of Hap and Leonard on SundanceTV.
William Astore is the second guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a history professor and retired Air Force Lt. Colonel. Astore is also a contributor to TomDispatch, The Nation, Truthout, and PomfThe Huffington Post where he writes about military affairs and international relations.
In this week's episode of the podcast William and Chauncey talk about Donald Trump's "foreign policy", our shared love of Star Wars and science fiction, what it was like to be stationed at Cheyenne Mountain during the Cold War, and what real national security would look like in the United States. During this week's podcast Chauncey comes out of his media detox post-Trump period of reflection and mourning, reads a letter from someone who will be personally impacted by Trump's meanness and fascism, makes a public promise, and shares some wisdom from the political theorist and philosopher Sheldon Wolin. Chauncey also discovers a new favorite animal friend--the echidna.
