John Amato On The Bob Cesca Show
Bob Cesca and John Amato
July 15, 2021

The owner and publisher of Crooks and Liars, our own John Amato, sat down with Bob Cesca for a wide-ranging discussion of politics, the history of blogging, the impact of social media, and the outlook for blogs and politics in the future.

"Hosted by Bob Cesca, the popular Salon.com contributor and editor for The Daily Banter, the Bob Cesca Show combines funny liberal political talk from podcasters knee-deep in the trenches of the American political debate."

Show notes:

John Amato from Crooks & Liars -- [Explicit Language] John is the founder of Crooks & Liars, one of the original liberal blogs dating back to the middle 2000s, and it was the first blog to feature streaming video long before YouTube existed. John's also a successful professional musician, performing with Duran Duran, Ronnie Montrose, Ringo Starr -- and even Ozzy Osbourne in a weird way. Follow John on Twitter @JohnAmato.
