This episode is really fun. And important. Samantha Bee (@iamsambee) [34:19] has taken on the rich, the powerful, the crooked and the wrong. She’s been a voice for the voiceless. And a true patriot. After 12 legendary years at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the trailblazing comedian, writer and producer launched her own groundbreaking satirical news show on TBS. Full Frontal with Samantha Bee (@FullFrontalSamBee) debuted in 2016. And with the launch, Sam became the first woman to host a late-night satire show.  She was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine, her show has won an Emmy, she’s battled Bill O’Reilly, and in 2017 hosted "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner". Sam’s always squared the circle from TV into political and social impact and created on-ramps into politics for millions. In 2017, her "Nasty Woman Shirt" campaign raised over $1 million for Planned Parenthood and now she’s launching a new app to gamify the primary process.  Host and Iraq Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) leads a conversation with Sam and takes Angry Americans (@AngryAmericans) into the powerful place where comedy and activism intersect. It’s a hilarious, moving and candid conversation that takes you deep inside the world of comedy, satire, politics and television. Sam shares stories of life inside the early days of The Daily Show--and through a personal life journey that has taken her from working as a waitress in Toronto, to becoming an American citizen, to challenging three Presidents. She also breaks down the latest Debate of Democratic candidates, Trump’s abandonment of the Kurds and shares her very first car. And Paul rips into Trump’s betrayal of our troops, Le Bron James’ China comments and the latest on America’s electric scooter invasion.  If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention.

Marc Roberge (@MarcRoberge) is the thoughtful, sincere, brilliant, fun and tenacious lead singer of the massively successful band, O.A.R. (@OfARevolution). Together, with his bandmates and childhood friends from Rockville, Maryland, Marc has built one of the most successful bands of the last two decades. O.A.R is successful because of the concerts they’ve sold out and the hits they written like Shattered (Turn the Car Around) and That Was A Crazy Game of Poker. But more importantly, they’ve been successful because of the impact they’ve made. From veterans coming home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), to kids with cancer, to music programs in schools, to Habitat for Humanity, to the Special Olympics, O.A.R has been a trailblazer in making music matter. If you know their songs, you know why they’re great. If you don’t, you’ll quickly realize that you know more of their music than you thought. And you’ll find out why they’re important, iconic and inspiring.It’s an uplifting and insightful conversation that takes you deep inside the world of music, and the story of a local high school band that went all the way to selling out Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks. If you love music, this is an episode that’s in your key.But the music of politics in America right now, unfortunately, is not an OAR song. It’s Eric Clapton’s Tears in Heaven. Or it’s a tragic opera. It’s a gut-wrenching aria. It’s Puccini’s La Bohem. And host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) artfully takes Angry Americans (@AngryAmericans) deep inside where music and politics collide and through the urgent stories you need to know about. And after 4 weeks, General Motors workers are still on strike. Impeachment is gaining steam. Our President sold-out the Kurds, leaving them to be slaughtered by the Turks--who have now crossed the border into Northern Syria. There’s a new scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Minnesota Twins collapsed in the playoffs yet again. The Jets, Bengals and Dolphins haven’t won a game. And Paul got a butt-dial from Rudy Guiliani. Yes, really! As we creep closer and closer to Halloween, October is looking scarier and scarier by the day. But don’t fret. Paul takes you through all of it, with his trademark independence. And the 4 I’s: Integrity, Information, Impact and Inspiration.If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. Download the new Angry Americans podcast for free now.

With the American political landscape facing a new bombshell every few hours, host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) takes Angry Americans deep into the intersection of entertainment and politics with a man who has uniquely lived in that intersection for the last four decades. [27:50] Legendary actor and activist Bradley Whitford (@BradleyWhitford) has starred in The West Wing, won an Emmy for Transparent, and is fresh off winning another Emmy for his brilliant role as Commander Lawrence in the global phenomenon, The Handmaid’s Tale. Also a dedicated political activist, Bradley openly and hilariously shares his thoughts on President Trump, how his childhood as a Quaker shaped his politics, why he likes bourbon, and which candidate for President he’s supporting for 2020.

And as in every episode of Angry Americans, Paul Rieckhoff rips into the most urgent stories in America with a sharp and independent perspective.

Dean Kamen [22:32] is one of the greatest inventors of our time. He invented the Segway, the first drug infusion pump, and the Slingshot--a water purification device that requires no filters, can turn almost any kind of water into drinking water and can operate using cow dung as fuel. He also invented the LUKE (Life Under Kinetic Evolution) prosthetic arm for the Department of Defense’s DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). And now, Dean has invented invented a revolutionary all-terrain electric wheelchair known as the iBOT. He rode to our interview on Angry Americans (@AngryAmericans) with host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) on the newest version that he unveiled to the world this week in New York--and shares why it can change history not just for the disabled and wounded veterans--but for everyone. Like all our guests, Dean Kamen is an iconic, important and inspiring American. One who’s shaped what America has been in the past, is in the present, and more than any other guest we’ve had so far, he’s shaping the future. One of Dean's proudest accomplishments is founding FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), an organization dedicated to motivating the next generation to understand, use and enjoy science and technology. This year FIRST® will serve more than 1 million young people, ages 6 to 18, in more than 86 countries. High-school-aged participants were eligible for more than $50 million in scholarships from over 200 leading colleges, universities, and corporations.And as 16-year old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg rallied millions worldwide to focus on climate change, Paul Rieckhoff went out in the streets for the protest in New York City [1:45:16] --one of the biggest of thousands that happened all across the world. He walked in the march, interviewed participants--and counter protestors. Angry Americans take you inside a movement of hundreds of thousands of Angry Americans---and tons of kids. We walked with them, we talked with them, and we stood in the crowd, just a few hundred feet from Greta when she gave her speech that echoed immediately around the globe. It was a powerful and historic event, and we take you inside all of it.And as always, Rieckhoff digs into the most important stories in America with a fresh, independent and unique perspective. From the sale of Javelin missiles to Ukraine, to the latest 2020 polling, Rieckhoff breaks it all down.If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention.

Legendary tattoo trailblazer Scott Campell is more than an artist. He’s a storyteller, he’s an oracle, he’s an entrepreneur, he’s an innovator, he’s a tastemaker. He’s a father, he’s a traveler, he’s an activist. He’s a great American success story--and a true creative visionary. Starting at the lowest levels, sweeping floors and scraping to eat, he learned to become a master of the craft at Picture Machine, one of the oldest tattoo shops in California. He rose to become one of the most influential tattoo artists on the planet. Campbell built the legendary Saved Tattoo (@SavedTattoo) in Brooklyn and a client list that includes the most elite art and design and celebrity stars on the planet, like Marc Jacobs, Heath Ledger, Jennifer Anniston, Orlando Bloom and Penelope Cruz. And he’s also tattooed criminals inside a Mexican maximum security prison, working people all across America, and Air Force special forces pararescue PJ’s in Afghanistan after some of the fiercest fighting they’ve ever seen. He’s now at the forefront of marijuana innovation as the co-founder of Beboe (Beboe). Campbell has a wise and insightful voice that must be heard--especially right now. Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) sat down with him at the Classic Car Club (@cccmanhattan) in New York for the most interesting interview we’ve ever had on the pod. It’s one that spans elements of culture, art, business and politics. It’s a conversation that will definitely surprise and inspire you. And Rieckhoff digs into the most important and under-reported stories in America. From the GM workers strike, to the latest Democratic debate, to new tensions with Iran, to cuts to the military budget to pay for Trump’s wall, to Eli Manning’s benching by the New York Giants, Rieckhoff breaks it all down.If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention.

18 years later, America is still processing 9/11. And 9/11 First Responder Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) digs into all of it. From Trump’s plans to meet with the Taliban at Camp David to the Department of Defense making cuts to may for the wall to how to talk to your kids about 9/11. It’s a time that should be about unity. And Angry Americans is here to unite all Americans around the 4 I’s: integrity, information, inspiration and impact.The war in Afghanistan is now the longest war in US history. 18 years old. With no end in sight. Our war in Afghanistan is a teenager. It’s old enough to drive. It’s old enough to make its own choices. It’s old enough to get married to someone we don’t like. If Mitch McConnell has his way, it’s not old enough to use tobacco products. It’s NOT old enough to drink--which I think is bullshit. But regardless, the war in Afghanistan is almost 18 now. It’s old enough to legally do most things as an adult. And, now, it’s old enough to enlist. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention.

Nearly three out of every four homes in the Bahamas are underwater. The airport is gone. Countless people are homeless. And recovery from the catastrophic damage will cost billions of dollars. And now, the storm is headed straight for the United States. And straight for the Carolinas. No matter where it hits, it’ll be bad. But don’t worry, our President thinks we can nuke hurricanes. And Marienne Williamson thinks she can stop them with the power of her mind. School is back in session. And Professor Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) delivers a master class on the most pressing, most vexing and most inspiring stories in America. He rips into what has him understandably angry, has many others angry, and should have you and everyone in America angry. For example, it turns out that Mexico is not paying for Trump’s wall. Our troops are. Yep. This week, the Pentagon announced $3.6 billion is being snatched from 127 military construction projects to pay for the border wall. Just as Hurricane Dorian is set to hit military bases all across the southeastern coast of the US. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention.

Chris Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) grew up in the political and media crossfire. He knows how to mix it up with the world’s most powerful people in politics and media. And in the last week, the Emmy-award-winning journalist has found himself in the middle of the headlines like never before. The controversial host of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time and SiriusXM’s Let’s Get After It sat down exclusively with Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) for an extended interview about the state of affairs in America, the White House assaults on the media, Trump’s attacks on him personally, and the recent incident that dominated headlines worldwide. Chris was a co-anchor of 20/20 and an anchor on Good Morning America. But he’s really breaking news journalist. He’s not just an anchor behind a desk. He’s the kind of guy that gets out into the field. With the people. Chris has been all around the world, covering the biggest and toughest stories from Iraq and Afghanistan to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. And Cuomo talks candidly about the last few weeks under the media microscope and in the nasty crosshairs of Trump’s Twitter account. He also shares stories of his Italian-American upbringing, parenthood, fishing, fitness and his very first car (it’s unforgettable one). Chris Cuomo is a guy millions know from TV. But he’s also a father of three, a man of faith, and a dude who loves sports and working out. This episode will reveal a personal side of the Chris Cuomo that you’ve never heard before. And Paul Rieckhoff does what he does best. Asking probing questions of his guests and framing up the big picture of what’s happening in America. And ripping through the most important stories you may have missed or need to know more about. The Army veteran and renowned activist examines how Trump’s tone has become insidiously invasive and contagious. And how on the one-year anniversary of Senator John McCain’s death, that toxic tone is in direct contrast with leaders like John McCain, George Washington and Stephen Colbert. Rieckhoff also explores the violent and breaking news out of Afghanistan, digs into a tragic political fight that’s hurting Gold Star families, and rips into why a focus on Greenland is sucking attention away from the American Marine veteran and journalist, Austin Tice, who was taken prisoner in Syria 7 years ago this month. And with football season coming soon, Rieckhoff analyzes the political importance of Vince McMahon’s new XFL football league.

It’s the dog days of summer in America. And there is LOTS happening you need to know about. From the aftermath of the El Paso and Dayton massacres, to the evolving shooting situation in Philadelphia, to attempts to change the meaning of The Statue of Liberty, to the wave of veteran suicides happening in VA parking lots, Paul Rieckhoff (@Paul Rieckhoff) breaks down what you need to know--and what you may have missed.

This is the most powerful interview we have ever had on Angry Americans. After mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton rocked our already fragile nation, Paul Rieckhoff (@Paul Rieckhoff) sat down exclusively with a young man that has captivated and inspired America: JT Lewis (@thejtlewis). JT Lewis knows more about mass shootings than just about anyone in America. He is the 19-year-old brother of Jesse Lewis, a 7-year-old hero who was one of 20 children and 6 adults murdered at the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. Young Jesse bravely rallied his friends to run for safety, just before losing his own life. After losing his only brother, then 12-year-old JT committed his life to honoring Jesse’s memory by making a difference in the world. He raised money for Rwandan genocide survivors, met with both Presidents Obama and Trump, and just three weeks ago announced his candidacy as a Republican for State Senate in Connecticut--at just 19-years old. The freshman college student and football player is a powerful voice on gun violence and an inspiration for all Americans. And especially right now, his is a voice that must be heard. And as a show that is always focused on being a voice for political independents, Angry Americans also check in with GOP strategist, media guru and former Giuliani adviser, Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson). Last week, we talked to Democrat whisperer, Tommy Vietor (@TVietor08) of Pod Save America (@PodSaveAmerica). This week, we get the other side of the aisle and talk to Republican whisperer Rick Wilson. Rick breaks Trump’s reaction to El Paso and Dayton, which Democrats are the strongest and boldly predicts whether or not Donald Trump will be re-elected.

This bold new episode of Angry Americans is feeling the need. The neeeeed for speeeeed. As the trailer for the new Top Gun: Maverick movie went viral nationwide, our guest for this episode has felt that need for speed. And the need for service. She was the first female Marine Corps pilot in history to fly the F/A-18 on a combat mission.Marine Fighter Pilot Amy McGrath (@AmyMcGrathKY) is running in the most-watched 2020 Senate race in America. After flying 89 combat missions against al Qaeda and the Taliban, the trailblazing combat veteran, former Naval Academy professor and mother of three just announced she’s running for the Senate in Kentucky versus the exceptionally unpopular Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It’s the biggest challenge of her life--and on the biggest political stage in America. McGrath sits down with fellow combat veteran Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) for an exclusive and extensive discussion about her race vs McConnell, breaking barriers in the Marine Corps, being in the cockpit of an F-18 on 9/11 tasked with defending all of Los Angeles, and how she got her unique and unforgettable call-sign. Paul also digs into the most urgent news stories in America: the Mueller testimony, the historic victory for 9/11 First Responders, Trump’s threats to drop a nuke on Afghanistan, the expanding measles threat--and lots more fun stuff. So, yes, as with every episode, there will be some whiskey. Because we need it. This pod is always an examination of the great American experiment, a distress call and a rally cry. And if you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. But we promise you’ll leave this episode with a sense of the 4 I’s that we bring in every motivating installment of Angry Americans: integrity, information, inspiration and impact. Renowned activist Paul Rieckhoff always recommends ways to turn your righteous anger into positive action. And unites an audience that cares and is committed to making a difference in America.

This bold new episode of Angry Americans is feeling the need. The neeeeed for speeeeed. As the trailer for the new Top Gun: Maverick movie went viral nationwide, our guest for this episode has felt that need for speed. And the need for service. She was the first female Marine Corps pilot in history to fly the F/A-18 on a combat mission.Marine Fighter Pilot Amy McGrath (@AmyMcGrathKY) is running in the most-watched 2020 Senate race in America. After flying 89 combat missions against al Qaeda and the Taliban, the trailblazing combat veteran, former Naval Academy professor and mother of three just announced she’s running for the Senate in Kentucky versus the exceptionally unpopular Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It’s the biggest challenge of her life--and on the biggest political stage in America. McGrath sits down with fellow combat veteran Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) for an exclusive and extensive discussion about her race vs McConnell, breaking barriers in the Marine Corps, being in the cockpit of an F-18 on 9/11 tasked with defending all of Los Angeles, and how she got her unique and unforgettable call-sign. Paul also digs into the most urgent news stories in America: the Mueller testimony, the historic victory for 9/11 First Responders, Trump’s threats to drop a nuke on Afghanistan, the expanding measles threat--and lots more fun stuff. So, yes, as with every episode, there will be some whiskey. Because we need it. This pod is always an examination of the great American experiment, a distress call and a rally cry. And if you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. But we promise you’ll leave this episode with a sense of the 4 I’s that we bring in every motivating installment of Angry Americans: integrity, information, inspiration and impact.

Racism is ripping American apart right now. As President Trump doubles-down on his Tweets, and the parties remain deeply divided, Army veteran and renowned activist @PaulRieckhoff breaks it all down from a unique perspective.

America is right now on the edge of war with Iran. And Angry Americans breaks down what you need to know. What would American military strikes against Iran mean? How would combat unfold? How many might die? In his own unique and powerful style, Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) dissects the issue that has the entire world on edge. The US Army Iraq war veteran examines the harrowing geopolitical game of chicken playing out on Donald Trump’s Twitter account, in the halls of Congress and around exploding oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. We go deep with gragarious cryptology and intelligence expert, Navy combat veteran, MSNBC terrorism analyst, and best-selling author, Malcolm Nance (@MalcolmNance). Before joining the Navy, Malcolm came from a family with generations of combat veterans and grew up in Philadelphia studying Spanish, French and Latin, and taking free classes in Russian and Chinese on weekends at a local high school. He served for 20 years in the clandestine world of top secret covert combat operations from Beirut to Libya to Iraq. He shares fascinating war and spy stories that sound like the stuff from the movies. One of the few African Americans to serve in his area of expertise, and one of the rare Americans to have already engaged in combat with the Iranians, Malcolm has a viewpoint like no other. He has also been an outspoken critic of Republican and Democrat leaders at the highest levels—and battled haters and partisans across American and in the Wild West of political Twitter.

This is Angry Americans on drugs. Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) explores the roller coaster history of the drug reform movement and the rapidly-changing landscape of drug policy with the visionary leader Rolling Stone describes as “the driving force for the legalization of marijuana in America.”As the Presidential candidates and the national political landscape on drugs shift by the day, Ethan Nadelmann (@EthanNadelmann) has been called America’s real Drug Czar. He is the mastermind behind the biggest changes to drug policy in US history. A Harvard PhD and the son of a rabbi, Ethan founded the groundbreaking Drug Policy Alliance (‪@DrugPolicyOrg) in 1994 and was a lead architect behind 30 years of reform to include California’s historic Prop 47 referendum—which in 2014 reduced drug possession for personal use to a misdemeanor. This defining political victory proved to be the first domino to fall in a string of historic national legal changes and unleashed a wave of legalization of marijuana in 10 states across America—with inevitably more to come. Ethan has advised Presidents and Presidential candidates—and shares the fascinating inside story of building the early days of the drug reform movement, and of building powerful (and unlikely) political coalitions uniting conservative icon William F Buckley and liberal icon George Soros. With New Jersey, New York and others debating legalization right now, this conversation couldn’t be more timely. As with every episode of Angry Americans, it delivers the 4 I’s: integrity, information, impact and inspiration. Rieckhoff pushes, probes and challenges. He breaks down the latest on a potential war with Iran, the shocking resignation of Acting Secretary of Defense Shanahan and the historic NBA Finals ending. And Rieckhoff continues to be among those national leaders leading the charge with his fellow First Responders to pass the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund extension in Washington.
