Dear Jimmy and Marc,
I live in Vermont. I was listening to past podcasts when I heard you speak of the way Bernie was shunned by Vermont’s aficionado super a-holes. I want you to know in your hearts that Bernie won every fucking town in this state and that is unprecedented in its history. Don’t take my word, look it up at Vermont Secretary of State’s website on elections. Every fucking town! 100% voted for Bernie and that ain’t County shite. That’s every fucking TOWN! P.S. I didn’t vote for Leahy this time since he obviously gave up representing his constituents by stating he was all in for the the corporate pigster. The others weren’t running or I would have voted against also. Keep the faith! Tally ho!

Oh my God. Thank You, Vince! A sane celebrity, imagine that. Good for you Jimmy, for having him on at least, whoever the hell you are.

I am so excited to see this Democrat/Republican alliance against Trump that Jimmy said would happen.

Trump just opened up Keystone XL and DAPL. That’s basically game over for any action on climate change, so that whole alliance thing is gonna be so great when it happens. I can’t wait.

What a nice long discussion with Thomas Frank! For me, this almost makes up for the unnecessary anti-Christmas episode that aired around the time of the holiday (made it easy to send my money to someplace other than Pacifica). But back to Frank — “Listen Liberal” is essential reading, basically a book that predicted, back in the middle of last year, what would happen and why, along with an essential critique of the Obama presidency. Thanks to Jimmy for giving such a generous amount of time to the discussion with Frank, which was great listening. Capping it off with a “Barack Obama” phone call was perfect. I understand this is a YouTube video, which I’ll look for and share.

Jimmy,
Outstanding interview with Thomas Frank! You two sounded like kindred spirits-if not fast friends. Mr. Franks has obviously been talking about his book ‘Listen Liberal’ for some time now, but he was so fresh and enthusiastic to be talking with someone who was so prepared and well versed in his work. One thing that struck me about your interviewing style-the thing that really sets you apart from ‘mainstream media’- is that you asked questions and made your point, and then actually stayed quiet and allowed Mr. Frank to give a full and complete answer without being interrupted. Much appreciated!

Regarding your discussion of Pres. Obama’s failure to bail out main street or to prosecute any banksters, I couldn’t help but remember a piece in The Intercept back in July 2015 by Lee Fang in which he called out Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder for being a corporate tool swinging through the revolving door ostensibly to protect big banks rather than punish them. Here’s a link to that article for your hundreds of thousands of listeners who may be unaware of this telling piece of Obama’s legacy.

Interview with Mr. Fang perhaps? Keep up the great work. A quarter million subscribers is just on the horizon!

Wow…Great and meaningful discussion with Thomas Frank…Jimmy reminds me of a serious and funny George Carlin. I’ve been a 35-year democratic activist, former elected democratic official, DNC delegate and last year a Bernie 2016 Field Organizer (the 17 hours days 24/7 nearly killed me)..which was the most inspiring campaign I worked on besides my own…First-time show viewer…but I’ll be back and sharing The Jimmy Dore show with my friends…Jimmy’s right about the HRC walking dead supporters…they still don’t get it…They were played for dupes by 97% of the party’s Super Dupers. Nothing is changing…YET!
