Introducing Truth Mashup America! Rounding up the most ridiculous and important American news. hosted by two progressive Canadians looking down at you every week (geographically speaking).

This week we crack open the history books and revisit the 1979 Malaise speech from Jimmy Carter and show you how perhaps it wasn't such a "Malaise" after all. The definining speech of the Carter era is still sadly relevant in 2014, listen to find out how history has failed us. Speaking of books, we enter an all new chapter in the Book of Asshattery and this one is high art from Arizona.

071014.jpg

This week on Truth Mashup Radio we're talking the Toronto Star's exclusive Rehab story - did it go too far? Let's just say Vince and Dan don't see eye to eye on it. Harper's secret TPP talks? Conspiracy theorists start your engines because apparently we must be kept in the dark. The guys will run down what it means for Canada and some reasons Harper and company would rather keep it secret. Did Ontario save Bees? Ontario joins the EU in the fight against a neonics. The Prince of Pot is set to receive a royal welcome as he returns home from prison - we talk about the newly pro-pot world Marc Emery is coming back to. The long wait for victims of a Halifax orphanage is over as a judge rules on a 29 million dollar payout - but why have so few Canadians heard about this? And Tony Abbott's Conservative immigration policies are getting a bit scary - is Australia losing it's reputation at the U.N.? And does it care? All that and more this week on Truth Mashup Radio!

This week on the show: Climate Change gave us the hottest May on record, but our government is giving us record breaking oil subsidies at the cost to the Canadian citizen of 34 Billion dollars a year. We'll break down the numbers from the Tyee. The Unions win big as Wal-Mart loses a huge court battle in Quebec, we'll break down the decision and show you why their CEO thinks Wal-Mart's greed is just an "american problem". Do you believe in a public broadcaster? Dan makes his case for why we need a strong CBC now more than ever. Should Jesus come between you and your birth control pill? A Calgary doctor thinks so and so do Alberta laws. All that - plus we bring one of the douchiest Douchebag of the Week segments ever. Listen to an all new Truth Mashup Radio

TruthMashupAmerica.jpg

This week Dan and Vince bust open the Reagan years and take on everything from Voodoo economics to how the Republicans handled the AIDS crisis. If you were born during or after the 80's you may not believe your ears. Elizabeth Warren points out that having a healthy middle class isn't magic, we'll explain how she's right and the 1980's report that told us trickle down economics doesn't work - yet why are they still running elections on it? Plus, we take a look at our old friend Bill O'Reilly and see how his boycott of Mexico is going and Mike Huckabee and his homophobic homies didn't exactly need much crowd control help at their failed rally for idiocy. All that and more as Truth Mashup America hits the air.

Truth Mashup Live 06.19.14



This week for those of our Canadian podcast listeners who haven't checked out our live YouTube show yet, we're making it a little easier. Every week on YouTube we run down North America's most important/ridiculous news mixed in with some lulz. This week we're bringing you the Canadian part of the show. Every Sunday at 830PM EST we kick it off with Truth Mashup America!. Head over to Truth Mashup's website where you can watch us live and you can even join in the chat and shape the show.

On today's episode we're talking Ford family failing upwards? Can Doug and Rob continue their streak of failing upwards into public office? Stephen Harper's fight for internet surveillance. We track the course from pedos to bullying and why we're not surprised they're ignoring the Supreme Court. Do you ever get the feeling that marketing has trumped reality? We'll show you how Canada is treating its war heroes and why it's probably better to be the actor in the commercial. Plus, more Ontario Election hangover thoughts and Dan can't quite believe how Canada treats our homeless.

99: Kickstarting Cancon

99.jpg

This week Dan and Vince talk Canadian entertainment from Corner Gas to the ailing CBC - and what exactly is crowdfunding for anyway? Then the conversation turns back to our regularly scheduled podcast - From Russia and China to Christy Clark and BC - what's going on with energy and what are environmentalists to do? Is the Bengazhi breakdown of the right actually a good thing for America? We talk tea party vs. old guard scandals. Where has the left gone? Why Dan thinks "moving to the centre" is always just moving to the right - and why progressives don't have a real option in Ontario and many other places in Canada. Plus Target Canada makes it back into the douchebag of the week. All that and a whole lot more this week on Truth Mashup Radio!
