In brief: Zach Roberts is back on the show to talk conservative conventions and why, in this digital information age, what happens at them still matters. He regularly attends CPAC and the NRA as part of his coverage of voting and election rights and theft, reporting back to us so that we don’t have to watch or listen to the abhorrent goings on. In my intro I go into the Russian-NRA connection, one being so widely reported on by Zach and others that I shelved my distaste for conspiracy theories long enough to read about and share it with you. Spoiler: it’s not a conspiracy (the Russian players have been open about quite a lot of it).
Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
