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!
