Rick Perry signing something official with his tongue sticking out.
My favorite station? Three words: Daily. Kos. Uhh... hmm.
Daily Kos Radio is on the air, Monday through Friday, now from 9 a.m. to noon, ET. We start with two hours of the Kagro in the Morning show from 9-11, and then it's The Ministry of Truth, with Armando Llorens, starring Jesse LaGreca from 11-12.

For podcasts you can stream or download, watch the Daily Kos Radio group page, where we post our shows daily.

We're working toward a solution that'll enable us to take your calls during the show without blowing up our computers. But in the meantime, you can reach me at @KagroX on Twitter with comments, suggestions, story ideas, etc. Try your hand at the job of Program Director! If you're any good at it, maybe we'll hire you #Retroactively!

What'd you miss if you skipped Daily Kos Radio yesterday? Well, some of the good stuff went like this:

where4art joins in to help us straighten out some of the remaining mysteries of Mitt's departure from Bain, including why it might legitimately have taken nearly three years to negotiate an exit agreement, even though the guy was President, CEO, Chairman of the Board and sole shareholder!


You can find yesterday's full show here, and highlights here. (Now with links to non-Flash players that you can even access on your mobile devices.)

And because I still care... What's happening in Congress today?

In the House

Work will continue on the Department of Defense appropriations bill, and the pile of amendments to it.

In the Senate

Well, to no one's surprise, they didn't get that agreement on the motion to proceed to the "Bring Jobs Home Act" yesterday. So today they'll be standing around, staring at one another (with their mouths moving, one at a time) until 2:15, when they'll vote on cloture on the motion to proceed. If it succeeds, they'll start burning the 30 post-cloture hours and looking for a deal on amendments to the bill, which will probably also be under threat of filibuster. If it fails, well, it's Thursday. They can pass a few unanimous consent items and take off for the weekend.

On the Radio

DemFromCT joins us in his regular slot for a polling and issues update. Today, we're set to look at the latest Democracy Corps focus group study on the Paul Ryan budget, and how it might play in the presidential race. Tune in for the details! And be sure to hang around afterwards for Jesse and Armando, and a full day of solid, progressive programming afterward, brought to you by the gang at Netroots Radio!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
