Doogie Horner / Mueller’s investigation and Putin’s motivation

Listen 49:14

Guests: Doogie Horner, Julia Ioffe, David Corn

Today we’ll meet comedian and Philadelphia-native DOOGIE HORNER. He’s just released a new illustrated book version of Die Hard – part of the ongoing nerd-centric debate as to whether the film qualifies as a canonical Christmas movie. We’ll talk about Die Hard, his viral appearance on “America’s Got Talent” and his comedy album, A Delicate Man. Then, with some observers predicting that the President will fire Special Prosecutor Mueller despite official denials from the White House, we’ll talk about the ongoing investigation, as well as Russia and President Putin’s interest in disrupting American politics. JULIA IOFFE of The Atlantic and DAVID CORN of Mother Jones join us.
