    • Healthcare & Societal IssuesMint Mobile offers discounted prices for new customers and PlushCare provides online access to physicians, while Charlemagne the God emphasizes the need for nuanced discussions on societal issues and the importance of authentic conversations, expressing frustration with being typecast and the impact of social media on longer, thoughtful conversations.

      Mint Mobile is offering a discounted price of $15 a month for new customers for a limited time, while PlushCare provides online access to board certified physicians who can prescribe weight loss medications. Charlemagne the God, a media mogul and host of The Breakfast Club, discussed the importance of deeper, meaningful conversations and the issue of being typecast based on race. He expressed frustration about being asked to represent all black people's views and the need for nuanced discussions on societal issues. The conversation also touched on the influence of social media and the loss of the ability to have longer, thoughtful conversations. Tim Ryan's phrase, "the exhausted majority," was mentioned as a representation of the shared feelings of many people in America. Overall, the discussion covered topics ranging from weight loss and healthcare to societal divisions and the importance of authentic conversations.

    • Media bias in US electionsMedia focus on criticizing one candidate while ignoring the actions of another can hinder informed decision making, as seen during the 2022 US presidential election due to 'Trump derangement syndrome' and partisanship

      The 2022 U.S. presidential election has left many people around the world in disbelief, as they watch the two major candidates, each with their own set of controversies. One candidate faces criminal indictments, while the other is criticized for their inability to deliver proper messaging. The speaker, representing the 1 in 4 Americans with unfavorable views of both candidates, expresses their frustration with the media's focus on criticizing one candidate while ignoring the actions of the other. The media's "Trump derangement syndrome" and partisanship were also discussed as obstacles to delivering accurate information to the public. The speaker emphasized the importance of focusing on the actions of all political figures, not just their criticisms, to make informed decisions.

    • Political sincerity vs. truthSome individuals may prioritize sincerity in lies over truth in statements, and the application of justice can raise concerns about fairness and political motivation.

      During the discussion, it was pointed out that some individuals, like Donald Trump and certain conservatives, may be more sincere in their lies than Democrats are in their truths. The conviction of Donald Trump was also discussed, with some expressing concern about potential political retaliation in the courts and the potential lack of fairness in the application of the law. The speaker argued that Trump's felony charges for a payment to a porn star were an escalation of a state misdemeanor and disproportionate to other, more serious allegations against Trump. The speaker also compared Trump's situation to that of Bill Clinton, who faced no criminal charges despite a larger payment to settle sexual harassment allegations while in office. The speaker questioned whether Trump's prosecution in an election year was politically motivated and could potentially undermine public trust in the justice system.

    • Trump's legal troublesTrump's conviction on 34 counts has intensified political divisions, with 49% of independents believing he should drop out of politics, but his base remains strong and he's raised over $60 million since the conviction. Critics argue that Trump's privileged status as a white male ex-president sets him apart from others in the legal system.

      The conviction of Donald Trump on 34 counts related to business dealings has significantly impacted public perception, particularly among independents. Forty-nine percent of them believe Trump should drop out of politics following the conviction. However, Trump's base remains strong, and he has raised over $60 million since the conviction. Trump's argument that the justice system is unfairly targeting him, especially as a former president, is a contentious issue. Critics argue that Trump's privileged status as a white male ex-president sets him apart from others in the legal system. Despite the ongoing debates about fairness, it's clear that Trump's conviction has intensified political divisions in America. The January 6th Capitol riots, ongoing investigations, and other legal issues further complicate the situation. Regardless of one's stance, it's evident that Trump's legal troubles have significantly impacted the political landscape.

    • Trump trial controversiesThe fairness of a potential Trump trial is questioned due to his notoriety and potential juror bias, while historical precedent and challenges of applying criminal law to presidents are discussed. Concerns about divisiveness and instability in American politics and global reputation are raised.

      The discussion revolves around the complexities and controversies surrounding the legal proceedings against former President Donald Trump, particularly regarding the investigation into his handling of classified documents and allegations of election interference. The speakers express doubts about the fairness of a potential trial for Trump due to his notoriety and the potential for bias among jurors. They also touch upon the historical precedent of impeachment as a mechanism for holding presidents accountable, and the challenges of applying criminal law to presidents. The conversation also touches upon the potential implications for other presidents and the future of American politics. Ultimately, the speakers express concerns about the potential for divisiveness and instability in American politics, and the impact on the country's reputation on the global stage.

    • Election base enthusiasmThe 2022 election outcome could be determined by which candidate can effectively energize their base, as Trump's supporters are highly motivated while Biden's base appears less engaged. Independent voters and disillusioned Democratic voters, particularly Black Americans, could significantly influence the outcome.

      The outcome of the 2022 elections could hinge on which candidate can effectively energize their base. Charlemagne Tha God, a prominent radio host, expressed uncertainty about who would win between Donald Trump and Joe Biden due to the differing levels of enthusiasm within each candidate's base. Trump's supporters are highly motivated, as evidenced by their public displays of support, while Biden's base appears less engaged. However, the potential impact of independent voters and disillusioned Democratic voters, particularly Black Americans, could significantly influence the outcome. While polls suggest a rise in Black American support for Trump, Charlemagne remains skeptical of these findings and attributes the shift to years of disappointment with the Democratic party. The Vice President's perceived poor performance has also added to this sentiment. Ultimately, the election will likely come down to which candidate can mobilize their base and secure crucial votes from key demographics.

    • Individual Accountability vs. Societal IssuesAccountability is crucial for individuals, but it's equally important to address the underlying societal issues that contribute to their actions.

      Accountability is necessary for individuals, regardless of their fame or wealth. In the case of former Vice President Mike Pence, there are calls for him to more vigorously address the constitutional issues surrounding Donald Trump's actions. Meanwhile, P Diddy faces allegations of domestic violence, and it's crucial to remember the root issues, such as the patriarchy and men dealing with unhealed trauma, rather than focusing solely on the individuals involved. In the news, Caitlin Clark's success in women's basketball has sparked discussions about race and privilege, but her talent as a player should not be overshadowed. Ultimately, it's essential to address the underlying issues and not let individual situations distract us from the larger societal problems.

    • Individual achievementsExceptional talent drives individual achievements, regardless of race or physical appearance. Respect and recognition are essential for all athletes.

      The success of individuals, such as Caitlin Clark in basketball or Tiger Woods in golf, should not be solely attributed to their race or physical appearance. While there may be more attention given to those who excel in fields where their race is not the norm, their achievements are primarily a result of their exceptional talent. However, there can be elements of jealousy and envy from others, leading to negative comments or actions. It's essential to remember that these individuals deserve respect and recognition for their accomplishments, regardless of their background. Additionally, it's crucial to be mindful of how we treat up-and-coming talents, like Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark, to ensure a fair and supportive environment for all athletes.

    • WNBA mentors and rookiesMentors should strike a balance between supporting and challenging rookies to foster their growth and excitement in the WNBA, attracting more viewers.

      Mentors and veterans in the WNBA, like Kennedy Carter, should be careful not to be too harsh on rookies, such as Caitlin Clark and Kalyn Klotz, while also not being overly lenient. Martina's point that Clark is helping all players in the long run by making the sport more exciting and attracting more viewers resonated with the speaker. The incident with Clark's cheap shot was compared to historical instances of enforcers protecting stars in basketball. The Indiana Fever was suggested to find an enforcer to protect Clark. LeBron James was jokingly proposed as a potential enforcer, although not currently possible in America. Overall, the conversation emphasized the importance of supporting and protecting rising talent in the WNBA.

    Jeffrey Sachs: On Putin's Peace Demands

    Jeffrey Sachs: On Putin's Peace Demands

    President Putin wants peace. At least that’s what he wants you to believe.

    The Russian dictator has, for the first time, outlined his terms for a ceasefire in Ukraine.

    He’s demanding the complete withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from four regions which are currently occupied by Russia, and which it claims to have annexed.

    Italy’s prime minister Giorgia Meloni, speaking at this weekend’s peace summit of world leaders, said he’s effectively telling Ukraine to withdraw from… Ukraine.

    But if Putin’s real aim was to feign innocence for his apologists and score another propaganda victory, he may have been successful.

    To debate, We're joined by Professor Jeffrey Sachs.

    'Real Martha' From Baby Reindeer Lawyer: Fiona Harvey WILL Take The Stand

    Fiona Harvey, the "real Martha" from Baby Reindeer, is suing Netflix for a whopping 175 million dollars.

    Its also contends that Netflix 'did nothing' to prevent Harvey from being identified and that, as a result, her life has been 'ruined'. 

    Media commentators say the result of the case could change how 'true stories' are portrayed in TV and cinema forever.

    Is Joe Biden Fit for Duty?

    Is Joe Biden Fit for Duty?

    A video of President Joe Biden wandering listlessly at the G7 summit in Italy made global headlines last week.


    It appears to show a confused commander-in-chief drifting aimlessly away from world leaders - until Italy’s prime minister Giorgia Meloni retrieves him.

    Liberal media outlets screamed “misinformation.”


    While the President appeared to freeze at a campaign fundraiser in Los Angeles on Saturday and had to be guided off stage by Barack Obama.


    Democrats love to go hopping mad about “cultist” Trump supporters wearing MAGA-coloured glasses.

    It’s time they admitted their president is now unfit to serve and started a serious conversation about how America and the world should deal with it.


    Joining to debate are three ferocious commentators from the political right, left and centre.


    Cenk Uygur, Founder & Host, The Young Turks 

    Host of Tomi Lahren is Fearless on Outkick, Tomi Lahren

    Princess of Wales Returns!

    Princess of Wales Returns!

    The Princess of Wales made a triumphant return to public duties this weekend.

    It was her first official public appearance since Christmas Day.

    Kate revealed that she is still receiving treatment, including chemotherapy, for an unspecified form of cancer. That treatment is expected to continue for several months.

    But make no mistake, this was a huge moment for the royals in an historically wretched year.

    King Charles, aged 75, is still fighting cancer too.

    Conspiracy theories swirled for months about the health and whereabouts of Princess Catherine. Her badly-edited Mother’s Day photograph was an unmitigated PR disaster.

    But this weekend, against all odds, she was back at her glamorous best. And the crowds loved it.

    So, have the royals now turned a corner on a dark chapter?

    Have the Kate-spiracies been banished for good? Or were they - in fact - correct?

    And has there EVER been a more feeble attempt to overshadow a state occasion than Meghan Markle’s decision to unveil a range of dog biscuits on the very morning of Kate’s return?


    Uncensored contributor Paula Rhone-Adrien, Royal Editor, Sarah Hewson & Royal Historian Tessa Dunlop join to debate.

    But first, Fox News contributor, Dr Marc Siegel gives his thoughts.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Uncensored

    He’s a Kennedy. A conspiracist. And the insurgent, independent candidate for President of the United States.

    RFK Junior has shaken up the race for the White House; powered by younger voters and a canny media plan that favours podcasts over press conferences.

    Both the Biden and Trump campaigns are divided over who he hurts the most.

    But one thing’s for certain, a strong independent candidate could change the course of history in a knife edge election. And RFK Junior says he’s going nowhere.

    Kevin Spacey Uncensored

    Kevin Spacey Uncensored

    Kevin Spacey is one of Hollywood’s greatest villains.

    On - and off - the big screen.

    He’s played a serial killer; a gangster; a supervillain; a Horrible Boss; Dr Evil; an evil grasshopper…

    Even Richard Nixon…

    American Beauty made Spacey a symbol of suburban crisis.

    House of Cards made Netflix a content king.

    But it’s Spacey’s career - and his reputation - that’s come crashing down.

    In 2017 he came out as gay amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

    He’s since faced a slew of serious claims on both sides of the Atlantic.

    But no court of law has ever found Spacey guilty.

    His supporters think he is the MeToo victim.

    And now, he’s ready to reveal all;

    On Jeffrey Epstein;

    On Prince Andrew

    On the industry that shunned him;

    And the claims that wrecked an Oscar-winning career…

    Kevin Spacey is Uncensored.
