Duke and Zink Do America — Where My Politics Go to Live

Leave a comment

If you’ve been a reader of this blog for at least a year, you’ll have noticed that I’m rather political.  I’m also hesitant to post about politics on this blog, in part because this is supposed to be a space about genre fiction, writing, and so on.  That doesn’t mean I don’t talk about things that are political, but it does mean that I try not to talk about things to do with actual politics (Presidential races, etc.).

And that’s how it’s going to be from now on, because I just started a political podcast/blog with my co-host at The Skiffy and Fanty Show.  What is this new show called?

We describe it as follows:

Duke and Zink Do America is a 3/5ths serious political commentary podcast from a progressive perspective. We cover news, relevant events, and whatever else comes our way, always on the lookout for the stupid arguments and the stupid people who make them. 

If you need a fix of progressive politics with a moderate dose of humor, then this is the show for you.

Our first episode recently went live.  The show will be bimonthly, but we expect to post a few columns a month alongside.  Essentially, this is where my political rants and nonsense will go to live, fulfilling my desire to keep my writing and political worlds separate.

Feel free to head on over there and subscribe if you are politically inclined.  There will be a post over there soon enough explaining our mission, history, and so on.  For now, you’ve got over an hour of political deliciousness to enjoy.  Go listen and leave a comment!
