    On today's BradCast, guest hosted by Nicole Sandler. Nicole talks about the Kevin McCarthy saga and the US bombing of a medic hospital in Afghanistan.

    As House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was poised to take the first step toward becoming Speaker of the House today, he did an 11th hour about face. Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), who filed an ethics complaint against McCarthy, joins us to explain why he did it, and how he might have been the cause of today's turmoil.

    Guest host Nicole Sandler of radioornot.com speculates that a Speaker who can't adequately speak probably wouldn't have worked out too well anyway.

    And Emptywheel's Marcy Wheeler helps us understand the inconceivable bombing of a Doctors without Borders hospital in Afghanistan over the weekend.
