How would you respond to Jesus' question of: what do you want me to do for you? Perhaps our answer shouldn't be that different from Bartimaeus's. The scripture reading is Mark 10:46-52 Links! https://linktr.ee/JosephYoo (intro by Nick Serena, frontman for Astro Inn)Joseph Yoo
 
I spoke to author Jeff Sharlet in November 2020, just after the election was called for Biden - but Trump was already signaling that he would not concede.

In this episode, I talk with fellow IMG podcaster Bradley Onishi about how things have developed in the last year since the 2020 election. In that time we've seen Trump's decisive electoral loss, the Jan 6th insurrection, the entrenchment of The Big Lie within the GOP, and vaccine hesitancy. We've also seen reasons for hope.

Earlier this month, Tucker Carlson broadcast from Hungary.

It's 2021. Ossoff & Warnock won the Senate, and the next day Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building after being incited by the President himself and encouraged by Senators Cruz and Hawley. 5 people died.
