Historian Peter Kuznick is the first guest; he makes the case for Americans to 'hold their noses'
and vote for Joe Biden, but also expresses pessimism about the directions a Biden administration is likely to take.
Then media scholar Victor Pickard returns to the program to examine commercial media's superficial coverage of the election,
as well as its failures on other issues.

 

 
Notes:

 
This program was recorded on November 4 and 5 -- after the presidential election,
but before news services projected the winner.
