The Trump Plays His Greatest Hits Episode

In this episode (our 20th podcast!), we talk about Donald Trump’s rambling return to the spotlight with his appearance (and speech) at the Conservative Political Action Committee (or CPAC) – and what it means for the future of the GOP. We also talk about the federal government’s (seemingly impending) airline industry bailout – and the recent history of the industry’s relationship with the feds.

For PodReport, we both listened to Renegades (ironically sponsored by Starbucks Canada), the 8-part, Spotify-exclusive podcast where President Barack Obama and rock and roll legend Bruce Springsteen shoot the breeze on some meaty topics.
