Time for your weekly podcast with The Professional Left, otherwise known as our own Driftglass and Bluegal. Have a great weekend and enjoy the podcast everyone.

I would imagine most of the readers of this blog can relate to or has their own story about how they responded to right wing chain emails that show up in our inboxes forwarded from family members or friends. My dad used to send me right wing chain emails that some of his buddies sent him once in a while and a couple of replies to all debunking what was in them put a stop to that. I don't know how many of them he still receives, but if he's still getting them, he's not passing them along to me any more.

You can listen to the archives at and you can also make a donation there if you'd like to help keep these podcasts going and help Fran and Driftglass with their fuel expenses so they can afford to go to Netroots Nation this year.
