About This Show
Dan Spaventa (@spaventacular) & Sam Wagstaff (@wagstank) host The Plunge, a news and pop culture commentary machine that shows how centrism, capital, the profit motive, and horse race politics are massive collective delusions sustained by the media. We are inspired by five core principles: 1. Always punch up, not down 2. Human rights over economic concerns 3. Class politics and identity politics must work together 4. Actions speak louder than words 5. Stealing is usually fine.

Please subscribe and give us that coveted 5 star iTunes rating. We have a tantalizing tornado of stories today. In court Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen admitted his connection to blustering state TV personality Sean Hannity. In gossip news women of a certain age are horny for brain pill salesman Alex Jones and for the newest member of Trump’s legal team, the decaying husk Rudy Giuliani. In terrible takes we wade through nauseating sendoffs to Paul Ryan and appraise the self worshiping book tour of former FBI director James Comey. In the pop culture corner we discuss the acclaimed Teddy Perkins episode of Atlanta, Dennis Miller’s fall from Weekend Update to Breitbart News, and the most underrated Coen Brothers movie A Serious Man.
