Episode #253 – ‘Killing Comedy’ with guests Robert Bridge, Basil Valentine

By 21st Century Wire

This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE with host Patrick Henningsen bringing you all the top stories from the US, Europe and internationally. This week we’re joined in-studio by UK Column editor Mike Robinson, to discuss the firestorm around former Saudi court scribe Jamal Khashoggi who is still MIA, Trump threatening to pull out of INF Nuclear Treaty, and also how BREXIT being held up by the Irish border, along with America’s narrative obsessions in the new United States of Netflix. In the first hour we’re joined by special guest, American writer and political commentator, Robert Bridge, to discuss the latest creative wave spawned by 4Chan and Reddit, the NPC meme and how it’s really indicative of a deeper cultural and political meltdown in America in the run-up to the 2018 Midterms, and how the ‘New Left’ is killing comedy, which, if left unchecked, could eventually drown America’s congenial better half in the process. In the final segment, we’ll connect with our roving correspondent for culture and sport, Basil Valentine, for his newly revamped segment, Basil’s Magic Roundabout, with all the latest political gambits and so much more. Enjoy the show… HELP US TO KEEP DOING WHAT WE DO: http://21stcenturywire.com/support SUBSCRIBE & BECOME A MEMBER @21WIRE.TV: https://21wire.tv The Sunday Wire with Patrick Henningsen broadcasts LIVE on Alternate Current Radio SUNDAY 5pm-8pm UK Time, 12pm-3pm EST (US), 9am-12pm PST (US) at http://alternatecurrentradio.com and http://thesundaywire.com.
