Political Misfits
Political Misfits bring you news, politics and culture from the belly of Washington DC without the red and blue treatment. Informed by progressive politics, class analysis and anti-war activism, we break down the day's pressing economic, social and political stories from perspectives often ignored.

Drones Target Russia, Student Loan Trials, Northern Ireland Deal

Drones Target Russia, Student Loan Trials, Northern Ireland Deal
US military bases suffer from the same ills capitalism forces on civilians, and the Washington Post offers a science howler.
KJ Noh, a scholar, educator and journalist focusing on the political economy and geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific, discusses drone strikes within Russia, explains China’s response to the revival of the lab leak theory of COVID’s origins, breaks down the visit of the Belarusian leadership to China, and gets into the TikTok ban.
Phil Kelly, a political commentator and socialist activist based in Belfast, discusses the new deal struck to deal with Northern Ireland’s complicated Brexit, how much public opinion is needed to support the UK’s monarchy, and how Europe plans to deal with increasing irregular migration.
Margaret Kimberley, editor and senior columnist at Black Agenda Report and author of the book "Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents,” discusses the fate of US President Joe Biden’s student loan relief program, US government interference in Nicaragua, a new report on the US war in Afghanistan, and how US media fails to convey the reality of war and peace.
Ron Clewer, Illinois market president of Gorman & Company and an affordable housing advocate, discusses affordability in the US housing markets, how declining rents can actually coexist with declining affordability, and what an increasing rent burden does to communities.
The Misfits also discuss a bad situation involving bats in Arkansas, and Adidas’ quandary over its Yeezy surplus.
