July 30, 2016: Marcotte: Republicans See a Dystopian Hellscape; Digby: Dems Embrace America

This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show with a look at what the #DNCLeaks do and don't tell us about the relationship between senior party officials and the Sanders campaign.


Then we'll be joined by two Salon columnists to take a look back at the two major parties' political conventions. They offered dramatically different presentations of the world around us.

First, we'll speak to Amanda Marcotte about what it was like in the belly of the beast -- at the GOP convention in Cleveland. Amanda also caught some of the fireworks in Philadelphia.

Then we'll talk about the Democrats' remarkably inclusive convention in Philadelphia, which culminated in the first woman being nominated to top a major party ticket.
