A jazz podcast with political undertones. I make a statement with the opening track from Charlie Haden's This is Not America (for DJT). Darcy James Argue's Real Enemies opening track being The Enemy Within sums up my sentiment about one actor in this election year. From their we lighten it up with Dexter, Wynton, Nat and Chick.
