You hear me? I said iTunes!

So that's really easy, right? No more excuses, then? You'll start listening? Good!

Well, like I said, for the time being, the show is becoming an ongoing seminar series on Senate rules reform. Check in with us each day for a between-the-lines reading of what's being reported, and all the detail, background and weedy stuff that the traditional media just can't give you. It's like a kind of Radio Free Senate, beaming out the good stuff to anyone brave enough to tune in and learn more.

Damn, we're practically national heroes!

Tune in live each morning, or pick up the podcast at your convenience, and hear Greg Dworkin run down the latest in polling & punditry. Join in the discussion of the day's top stories with other Daily Kos and Netroots friends. And just generally have something better to do than listen to NPR. After all, we make jokes! Plus we read your Twitter comments on the air! You can't beat that! And if you can, I don't want to know about it.

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

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.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.

    The Commission as a whole does not take a position on which
    view (ACA/Obamacare works or does not work to control costs) is correct, but we agree that Congress and the President must be vigilant in keeping health care spending under control and should take further actions if the growth in spending continues at current rates.
    Deficit commission non-report still not a reasonable budget compromise (Joan McCarter, Apr 2011)

  •  yesterday's show was absolutely spectacular (3+ / 0-)

    i was not sure where you were going until you got there, but when you got there I was applauding and cheering.  I am helping your Stitcher stats by making DK radio one of my favorites and by giving the thumbs up to individual shows as I did for yesterday's show.

    I'm still on the fence about filibuster reform because I don't know what they are going about the problem of extending a talking filibuster through repeated quorum calls.  Sheldon Whitehouse told me at NN12 that they were planning to get around that problem but so far I have not seen any details anywhere.

    anyway, i hope you sent a link to yesterday's show to every D member of the Senate (not just Levin and McCaskill et al.) and to Jennifer Steinhauer.

    I agree that we must find a way to make your institutional memory more widely available.  is there a dK diary detailing all this stuff?

    i apologize for not listening live but I have gotten used to watching CurrentTV in the morning when I am home...

    keep up the fantastic work!  w00t!!!

    We just KNEW that you saying the background of your insanely gifted knowledge of the congressional rules innards would be worth it's weight in Fort Knox Gold!  You also made me feel better - more than a decade ago C-SPAN had these quasi publications explaining the rules which I ordered and then read. What I was missing were the examples of when the rules were deployed and when in real life.

    I obsessively watch C-SPAN because as a kid I fell in love with the weird way the senators talked during Watergate.  This channel came on where I could have study.  It was a foreign language albeit supposedly English.  I learned that my friend was equal to the southern Bless Your Heart!

    Great radio!!!!!

    •  i love C-SPAN too (0+ / 0-)

      I used to watch it all the time when they made a more consistent effort to be nonpartisan.

      now every time Greta says "Democrat Party" I cringe.  She cannot get through a show without saying it at least once, so it's not a slip up.  It's the way she talks, and she thinks it is just fine, and we all know what that shibboleth signifies.
