This week we talk about Major League Baseball's decision to move their All-Star Game out of Georgia due to their new slate of voting restrictions and THE subsequent call from Trump to "cancel" the MLB in response. Since the term "Jim Crow" has been thrown around a lot these past few weeks we take the time to explain the term, where and when it came from, and how it relates to today's voting restrictions. We also discuss the gutting of the Voting Rights Act in 2013 and explain how that single Supreme Court ruling is 100% at the core of today's controversy. Last but not least, REST IN PEACE DMX!!!!
BGP – Ep 106 – This Chicken Taste Like Jim Crow
Broken Glass Podcast
This episode we laugh in the first half of the show and cry in the second. First we breakdown some of the funniest stories in the news including Lindsey Graham acting like a tough guy, Sharon Osborne quitting her job like straight up snowflake, a Capital Building rioter being arrested while wearing a shirt that said "I was there January 6 2021" and Donald Trump having his first rally of 2021... at a wedding at Mar-A-Lago. In the second half of the show we discuss one of the absolute without a doubt most horrific acts of racism in American history... that you've never heard of.... that happened way back in... 1999!!! This story will shock you from start to finish, but what will shock and surprise you even more is where one of the participants currently works. Spoiler alert, he's a United States Senator now!
BGP – Ep 105 – Laugh Now Cry Later
This week, as America reopens and things get back to normal... things get back to normal. 2 major mass shootings (at least one of them by a religious fanatic) and racist graffiti plastered over Asian American restaurants signal a return to normalcy. Back to normal old American problems of religious nut jobs, public displays of racism (PDR's as I like to call them), and innocent Americans getting gunned down in broad daylight on the whims of a psycho. Instead of the pandemic bringing us together as a country, we are emerging from our lockdowns significantly more divided than when we entered. People hated the theatrical version, now it's time for the Snyder cut.
BGP – Ep 104 – God, Guns, And Race... The Snyder Cut
This week we discuss the rise in hate crimes against Asian American's all across the country since the start of the pandemic and stand in solidarity with them as they fight this all too familiar battle. We also discuss the hesitancy about taking vaccines in the Black community and break down the difference in coverage between Republican reluctance and African American reluctance. Last we talk about how the Tuskegee Experiment affects all of this and challenge those who believe that the conclusion to be drawn from a 40 year experiment on poor black men that DENIED them access to proper treatment (for syphilis) should used as an excuse to voluntarily deny yourself a vaccine for a disease that is disproportionately killing people in your community.
BGP – Ep 103 – Asian Lives Matter
This week we take a look at the story from an alternate reality that took place in a giant red bubble that was broadcasted across television screens all over the world, also we talk about the TV show Wanda Vision (Major spoiler alert if you haven't seen the show yet!). Then we discuss the completely preventable power outages that plagued Texas... in 2011... and compare the response to that disaster to the current response to the storm of 2021 and see if any lessons have been learned. (Also spoiler alert! The answer is nothing was learned)
BGP – Ep 101 – Wanda Vision
This week the Broken Glass Podcast Turns 100!!! It's time to break out the Bengay, pop in our best pair of dentures and take a double shot of viagra because tonight we're going out on top! This episode is full of special guests, previous guests, and guests not yet conceived by their parents. Also Vocab gets mildly drunk while recording so there's that. We've spent that last 99 episodes trying to shine a light on the many accomplishments of the great talents of the Northwest, but this episode we stop and take a look back at our own. The reciprocation of love we received this week was both unexpected and greatly appreciated. Cheers to 100 more episodes!
BGP – Ep 100 – The 100th Episode Celebration
Remember when Donald Trump said he could "shoot someone in the middle of 5th Ave and not lose a single supporter"? Well we now know he wasn't that far off at all. We explore the fact that while his popularity is at an all time low around the country and the world, he's every bit as popular as he's ever been with Republicans even after his failed attempt to steal the election through violent means. Then we use the profound words of the Terminator himself Arnold Schwarzenegger to explain to our audience the true meaning of the name Broken Glass Podcast, where we got it and why it's so relevant in this moment. We close out our 99th episode with part 2 of our interview with Rapper/Pitch Man/Entrepreneur Dboi LTD. We'll be back in 2 weeks with the 4th Annual BGP Awards and our 100th episode celebration so stay tuned!
BGP – Ep 99 – Fifth Ave = Capitol Building + Dboi LTD pt 2
Has anyone seen Q?! HAS ANYONE HEARD FROM Q?! This week we discuss what quite possibly may be the dumbest, most consistently incorrect, disconnected from reality, tinfoil hat wearing cult in the history of America. Q Anon set itself apart from other similar movements from the beginning. Instead of operating on the fringes they became fully immersed in conservative politics developing a true cult-like love for Donal Trump, while being welcomed with open arms by Trump and Republican party as a whole, even getting one of their own elected to congress. However on January 20th of this year a strange thing happened, literally every single prediction, every single theory, every single hair brained proclamation were all proven false! Every... single... one. Nothing they said was going to happen, happened. So we laugh for 30 minutes straight because let's face it, they were just the worst. Then Vocab welcomes special guest Dboi LTD to the podcast to discuss how he managed to create the Dutch Brothers anthem and the Portland Trailblazers official anthem, all the while dropping a full album every year for the last 4 years.
BGP – Ep 98 – Has Anyone Seen Q? + Dboi Ltd
Is your insurrection flaccid, ineffective, useless? Did you try to storm your way into another term, only to walk directly into another impeachment? DId you start the day full of life but end the day responsible for 5 deaths. Are your most devoted supporters rotting in jail? Did your insurrection last more than four hours but accomplish nothing but screwing yourself? If you answered yes to any of these questions, call a lawyer immediately. Also, you might want to make a reservation at the Trump hotel in hell, you do not want to get stuck in some s*** hole. This week we talk about the lack of imagination that people seem to still have for some reason when talking about what Trump might do and how he should be dealt with in response to his failed insurrection attempt. Then Vocab interviews long time Portland rabble rouser Jessie Sponberg to discuss what he sees as the difference in how the traitors on January 6th were treated as opposed to quite literally any other protest in the history of history.
BGP – EP 97 – INSURRECTILE DYSFUNCTION + JESSIE SPONBERG
We told you something EXACTLY like this was inevitable! To prove it, we revisit a portion of episode 85 we did in September titled The Not So Civil War. There's been an obvious pattern of violence around Donald Trump that has been prevalent ever since the campaign. This outcome was predictable to anyone that has traveled outside the US or has roots in a third world country as I do. And yes, that violence was very specific to Donald Trump. Because unlike every other politician in the modern era that has learned the hard lessons from America's history of political assassinations, Donald J Trump cheered on the violence at his rallies and even offered to pay the lawyer fees of his supporters if they assaulted protesters. The escalation was as natural as bird flight, the outcome as predictable as rain in the Northwest. The time to stand up was then, it's too late now. Movements like this never really die once they gain enough momentum. That's why the swastika and confederate flag are still here long after their creators have failed and passed on. The MAGA hat and the Trump flag will live just as long and appear at the same places as the swastika and confederate flag for as long as this country stands. Those who do not understand their history are bound to repeat it. This is not our first rodeo.
BGP – Ep 96 – I Told You This Would Happen
This week we bring in the New Year looking at some of the best skits we did in the 2020 including Obama Trump, Donny Trumptana, Johnny Buckshot and the Canadian Anger Translator.
BGP – Ep 95 – Best Of Skits Vol 4
This episode we discuss the inevitability that after January 20th we will have two Presidents. One President will control the Army, Navy, Air Force, CIA, NSA, DHS, FBI, ATF, the Justice Department, and the Space Force. The other will control a twitter page and the minds of about 85% of the Republican party. Two Presidents one cup... Get ready for a sh*t show.
BGP – Ep 94 – Two Presidents One Cup
It's over, yet again. For the second time in a week the Supreme Court has rejected the Trump campaign's final effort to overturn the election in the courts. The Electoral College will vote today to elect Joe Biden President Of The United States of America and then it'll be over for the 60th time. Donald Trump will have turned 1 loss into 60 losses and dragged our country into the darkest period of democracy since the Civil War. Over 70% percent of Republican's believe the election was stolen by the deep state, George Soros, the Rupublican led courts, the Republican led Justice Department, The Republican Governor of Georgia, and Steve Rogers also known as Captain America. So this week we talk about the ridiculous fact that we're watching a President try to steal an election over and over again, failing miserably while accusing the other side of successfully stealing it with little difficulty. All the while driving what will probably be a generational wedge between Americans during a pandemic that is killing a 9/11 worth of people everyday last week (over 3000 deaths a day) to a Pandemic that New Zealand has totally eradicated without a vaccine. What could go wrong?
BGP – Ep 93 – The Man Of Steal
This week we talk about the epidemic of Republican on Republican violence sweeping the nation. From Republican voters sending death threats to Republican election officials, to caravans of Trump supporters circling the homes Republican election officials, to the President's Republican lawyers taking daily beatings in courts with Republican judges, to the Republican Attorney General being called "mentally ill" by the Republican host of a popular Fox News show, to... well you get the point. We offer our thoughts and prayers. After all, it's not exactly normal to lose 1 election 47 times so we sympathize. Then we discuss the calls from Sean Hannity and Matt Gaetz for the President to pardon himself and his family on the way out of office.
BGP – Ep 92 – The Beginning Of The End Pt 3
This week it's time to address the tin foil hat wearing, flat earth dreaming, "the election was stolen but they forgot to steal the Senate", covid's not real, morons that are destroying our country. These social media warriors with absolutely no substantive knowledge in the subject matter they purport to have done "thousands of hours of research" on. The people that pump gas by day and uncover "conspiracies" by night. We connect the dots between this increasingly popular type of citizen, the social media algorithms that connect them with their "ideas", and the real world life and death consequences that we're suffering as a result. No Karen we don't care if this hurts your comically uninformed feelings.
BGP – EP 91 – The Beginning Of The End Part 2
Last week we told you exactly how this thing was going to play out, did we not? Biden was going to win and Trump was going to claim the Democrats stole it... duh. We also said, the thing to watch closely was what Trump did when he inevitably lost in court. Well those days have come and gone and Trump still hasn't acknowledged the fact that he lost. So what now? The end of the Trump administration or democracy as we know it? Your guess is as good as ours. This week we breakdown the claims of voter fraud by the President. Then we ask the question, why are conservatives always getting outsmarted in their conspiracy theories? Why can't they ever crack the case and make an arrest? I mean, Donald Trump couldn't even keep his affairs secret and he actually paid $150,000 in an attempt to do just that. Not to mention his lawyer went to jail as a result. So why is it that since Trump has been President multiple members of his campaign have been arrested convicted and jailed, his lawyer jailed, his former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was just arrested (all by his own administration), but not a single Democrat has been arrested in the BIGGEST ELECTION FRAUD IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY? Spoiler alert, if your answer is that the Democrats secretly control everything, you're proving our point.
BGP – Ep 90 – The Beginning Of The End Part 1
This week instead of focusing on the election that everyone has already made their mind up about, we zero in on some of the funniest stories you may have missed involving the candidates. Including the "Law and Order President" Donald Trump getting endorsed by Ice Cube (the guy that wrote 'Fuck The Police') and Blood gang affiliated rapper Lil Wayne aka Weezy F Baby. Not to mention Trump also got the endorsement of Nora Bin Laden, yes the real life niece of Osama Bin Laden. Plus our own resident gang member/political pundit Brian Bleed returns to the podcast to give his full "Blooded" support of his Bresident.
BGP – EP 89 – Bickin Back Being Bresident
This week we look back on the month that saw the President, his wife, his son, his Press Secretary, and multitudes more of his aides and administration officials and advisors all contracting Covid-19. So for clarity, we just saw a security protocol shift from trying to protect the President from contracting the virus from visitors to the White House, to protecting visitors to the White House from the President... and failing miserably. That is correct, the people in charge of protecting us from the "Kung Flu" as Trump has called it, couldn't protect themselves or their families from getting kicked in the face by it. We also breakdown the last and final debate between Biden and Trump and discuss each candidate's performance.
BGP – Ep 88 – President Cootie Reporting For Duty
This week's episode we take a look at what was revealed in the President's tax returns. We discuss what it means to have a President that's constantly bragging about how much money he's making, while reporting to the IRS 10's of millions of dollars in total losses. We also ask the not enough asked question, if a black man behaved like Trump, what would people call him? I'll give you a guess, it rhymes with bigger. Then we examine the recent debates because why the hell not.
BGP – EP 87 – The 1st N–Word President
This week we Say Her Name. Breonna Taylor deserved better, and we'll prove it. We take critical eye to the facts of her case including the warrant to her apartment, and the self defense conundrum. Then Vocab goes on an epic rant about why he thinks we desperately need to move the conversation beyond Black Lives Matter, and into the next phase of what equality looks like.
BGP – Ep 86 – She Deserved Better
This week we return from a vacation to a state that is literally on fire. Not to mention to a country that is in total disarray, with political violence on every side of the isle becoming the new norm. That's where we begin our discussion on the most divided country in the western world. We also discuss the civil war breaking out across dinner tables around the nation and talk about the erosion of the American family due to political disagreements.
BGP – Ep 85 – The Not So Civil War
This week on the podcast we take a critical eye to the Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden. Donald Trump has done some truly disastrous interviews in the last 3 weeks that prompted our undivided attention. Then last week as if right on que, Joe Biden said "hold my beer"... We not only have a discussion about the gaffs and brain freezes of good old Joe, we also take a look back to the 1970s and shine a light on some of the extremely problematic things (you might not know) he had to say about race and desegregation. To close out the summer as we take the rest of the month off, we talk about the reopening of schools and America's continued battle with science and better judgement, even as it relates to children and the elderly. We also introduce a new character Donny Trash, a country singer that keeps it real AF when it comes to politics. See y'all in September!
BGP – EP 84 – Donkey Show Joe
This episode starts off with one of the funniest and rawest skits we've ever done, the mafia style '2020th Council Of The Infectious Diseases'. We take on the too often asked question, "why does Trump get different coverage than other politicians?". Then we answer that question by analyzing Donald Trump's latest viral interview with Axios where he once again "wishes" alleged child sex trafficker and rapist Ghislaine Maxwell "well", says about the 1,000 people dying everyday from the coronavirus "it is what it is", implies that not even he knows whether or he thinks the late John Lewis is "impressive", and states that percapity is not the right metric to measure death as a result of a worldwide pandemic...
BGP – Ep 83 – Put It Back In
This episode we talk about the "well wishes" sent to the accused child sex trafficer Ghislaine Maxell by the President of the United States of America. Admittedly we've talked about the Jeffrey Epstein case before but never really dove deep into his connection to the President until Trump inexplicably sent that bizarre sentiment to his co conspirator last week. Considering the fact that he's stated that he believed people who harm statues should get 10 years in prison, it's curious he would "wish" someone who trafficked underaged sex slaves "well". But maybe that's just just us. I guess Predator Lives Matter more than others. We also discuss the Fed's presence in our home town of Portland Oregon and Danny Justice of the PPP network gives a hilarious play by play of the events on the ground.
BGP – Ep 82 – Predator Lives Matter
This week we talk about Kanye West's presidential campaign announcement and have the awkward conversation about what his perceived mental state means for the campaign trail. Then we juxtapose the perception of Kanye's self described battle with mental illness to our current president's self described struggle with a very difficult cognitive test. Also, the Canadian Anger Translator chimes in on whether or not Canada should open its border to the Covid 19 hotspot that is the United States Of America.
BGP – Ep 81 – Pinky And The Brain
Last week we learned about Jada Pinket Smith's "entanglement" with August Alsina, this week we explore America's "entanglement" with covid-19. With infections spiking as so many states begin to roll back their re-openings, we examine how this little love affair began. We also discuss General Maddog Mattis' op ed about the President's lack of mature leadership and examine how that has affected our current pandemic response. In the second half of the show we compare the media's coverage of the Ebola outbreak that infected 9 people and killed 2, to the coverage of our current situation. Plus Obama Trump finally makes his return to the show, and defends his handling of this fiasco with a freestyle for the ages.
BGP – Ep 80 – Entanglement With Covid
This week we continue last week's conversation about systemic racism. Previously we discussed the first 5 components of the "system" in systemic, this episode we break down 6 through 10. Needless to say, taking this journey through the last 400 years of American history to arrive at this point has been an enlightening experience. We leave it more whole than we entered but also more aware of the danger present by the scope of the problem if left fractured and unattended. God bless America, and God forgive it.
BGP – EP 79 – Automatic Systematic Part 2
Keeping our discussion in line with the last 3 episodes, this week we start in on the most divisive term in America today, "systemic racism". Most of the discussions on this topic on mainstream news outlets usually devolve relatively quickly into debates on whether or not systemic racism is real or not. Instead of wasting time debating, we instead spend our time defining. So that in the future when we use the term, you the listener will know exactly what we're referring to. We identify 10 aspects of American society that are objectively rooted in obviously racist legislation and policy. Because we are not your typical show and we're dedicated to giving each important issue we discuss it's deserved time, we only get to 5 points. So enjoy part 1 of what hopefully is fruitful conversation that will allow you to move forward much more informed on the topic so many people refuse to acknowledge is even real.
BGP – EP 78 – Automatic Systematic Part 1
This week we're continuing our conversation on radicalization from last week and taking it back to it's ideological origins. It's Confederate origins. Once again, we read the words written by the Confederates themselves to discern their motives and discuss their place in the American present day. Spoiler alert, it still reads like a white supremacist manifesto. We also discuss the controversy in Nascar regarding the flag, as well as Dustin Skinner's comments towards lone black driver Bubba Wallace. Side note, most countries have one flag, this is a stupid problem to have.
BGP – EP 77 – Confederate State Of Affairs
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we're taking on the incredibly uncomfortable conversation of radicalization. We say uncomfortable because very few people that have been radicalized will ever admit it. From ISIS to the KKK, most radical's feel enlightened, not brainwashed. They feel empowered, as if the truth has set them free. They've been given a clear enemy to blame all their problems on and direct all their anger towards. That anger usually starts with misspelled rants on social media, eventually turns into hate, and in the most extreme cases violence. If I'm being honest I find it completely fascinating. It's like watching someone repeatedly punching themself in the face while looking at you like you're the crazy one.
BGP – EP 76 – Systemic Radicalization
This week we're taking a look at Drew Brees' as well as Roger Goodell's sharp reversals of opinion on the peaceful protests that took place during the national anthem at NFL games for the last several years. We give criticism and credit where it's due and try to dive a little bit deeper into this world wide conversation on race. Hopefully, through examining our past, leading to our present, we can carve out a better more sustainable path for our future. Maybe next time a silent protest will be enough to start the dialog instead of waiting for the next video, the next round of protests or the next riot.
BGP – EP 75 – Drew And Colin Sitting In A Tree
After an extended break due to Covid 19 shutting down the Broken Glass Studios we're finally back, and not a moment too soon! This week there are over 30 million unemployed Americans, over 100 000 dead from the largest pandemic to sweep the world in 100 years, all sports and entertainment is cancelled, and the country is on fire with protests from coast to coast... In other words, it's a typical Friday in 2020. Today we're talking about the same thing we talked about three years ago in our 10th episode, protests about police brutality. A lot has changed since then, and still at the same time, not much has changed. So let's restart the conversation exactly where we left off, and see if we can't actually make some progress as a country this time. Here's the point.
BGP – Ep 74 – Here's The Point
This week we talk about Joe Biden's outburst with a voter that ended in the presumptive Democratic Party Nominee threatening to take the man outside and slap him. Also we break down the Whitehouse's response to the Coronavirus amidst the looming shutdown of major aspects of American society. Then Vocab sits down the John Roussos the creator of the Here's My Thing Podcast for a hilarious conversation about everything from Damian Lillard's high cheekbones to car thieves in Southeast Portland.
BGP – Ep 73 – Get Sick Or DIe Tryin + John Roussos
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we talk about the newest viral sensation to sweep the nation, the Coronavirus. Instead of focusing our coverage on the hysteria surrounding the illness we instead talk about how we got here, and how we can better deal with these pandemics in the future. Then Vocab sits down with Mss Oregon, the Founder of the National Cannabis Diversity Awareness Convention going down this weekend at the Redd On Salmon in Portland. If you're in the Rose City this weekend make sure you stop by and check out the artists, musicians, comedians, activists, and speakers that promise to make this event one to remember.
BGP – Ep 72 – Corona and Lime + Mss Oregon
This week we stroll down memory lane and revisit some of the funniest, craziest, and most surprising moments from past guests of the Broken Glass Podcast. If you love the interview portion of the show, this is the episode for you.
BGP – Ep 71 – Best Of Interviews Vol 1
The pride and joy of the Broken Glass Podcast by far is our satire skits. This week we'll take you down memory lane with our funniest, smartest, and nastiest skits from 2019. Enjoy.
BGP – Ep 70 – Best Of The Skits Vol.3
This episode we celebrate the life of the late great Kobe Bryant after his tragic death in a helicopter crash alongside his daughter GiGi. Of his 41 remarkable years on this planet he spent 20 of them as one of, if not the most polarizing athlete of his era. Whether you loved him or hated him, when that ball was in his hands, you had to respect him. Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire Bryant family in their time of sorrow. Gone but never forgotten, RIP Kobe.
BGP – Ep 69 – Mamba Out, Kobe Bryant Tribute
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we break down the blood feud between Elizabeth Warren G and Bernie “The Butcher” Sanders. We talk about the mainstream corruption of “Woke” culture. Update you guys on the latest news in the impeachment saga. Then we also present part 3 of our 10 part series from the Plumber And Chief entitled ’10 Times Clean, Dishwasher Edition’.
BGP – Ep 68 – Woke To Death
We're back baby! It's our first episode of the new year and we're off to a bang... literally. Iran and the United States started off the week trading explosions like mean tweets. While most of the media has been focusing on that last week of events seemingly in a vacuum, we've chosen to take a much broader view of the conflict and trace it to its origin. Since the Trump administration used the Authorization Of Military Force passed in 2002 to grant the Bush administration permission to invade Iraq (cuz that worked out so well for everybody) to kill the Iranian General Soleimani in Iraq 18 years later, we decided to start there. We work our way from the beginning of the Iraq war, to "Mission Accomplished" 3 weeks later, to the Iraqi civil war, to the birth of ISIS, to the Iran Nuclear Deal, to the pulling out of the Iran deal, to our current predicament. Needless to say, Bruce Banner was right, "Were stuck in a time loop! This is exactly where it went wrong last time!".
BGP – Ep 67 – Time Loop 2002
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we breakdown the Impeachment Inquiry from start to finish and issue our final verdict on the case. We also discuss President Trump's apparent flushing addiction and Obama Trump get's the last word. Last but not least, it's our last show of 2019 so Happy Holidays everybody!
BGP – EP 66 – #Flushgate
Epstein may not have killed himself, but somebody definitely farted on Chris Mathews' interview with Representative Eric Swalwell and we're going to get to the bottom of it so help us God! Also this week on the Broken Glass Podcast we have a conversation about Colin Kaepernick's attempted return to the NFL, and Kanye West's un-mastering of the english language. Then we continue on to part 2 of our Impeachment coverage and point out some things we guarantee nobody else (excuse me) will.
BGP – EP 65 – Fartgate
In this special edition of the Broken Glass Podcast we decided to forgo our usual format and instead do an entire hour on the topic of Impeachment. We begin with breaking down exactly what Impeachment is, the difference between Impeachment and Removal, and lay out the actual rules of the process that govern this rarest of constitutional functions. In keeping with our usually unusual approach to analysis (and instead of boring you guys with the step by step facts of the case), we turn the magnifying glass on the legitimacy and logic of the arguments being made on day 1 of public testimony. Not to mention that Epstein didn't kill himself...
BGP – EP 64 – Epstein Didn't Kill Himself
This week Obama Trump stops by the podcast to brag about killing the leader of ISIS with his bare hands. We breakdown an extremely random set of topics ranging from healthcare, to Kanye West's recent comments, to Katie Hill's resignation from Congress as a result of revenge porn. Then we tune back in to part 2 of Vocab's interview with Tacoma legend Rocky Sandoval where they discuss break ups, new music, and play a hilarious new game called First And Last.
BGP – EP 63 – Like A Dog + Rocky Sandoval Pt 2
This week we breakdown the controversy between the NBA and the Chinese government. We also give an update on the Impeachment inquiry currently going on the House Of Representatives. Then Vocab sits down with Tacoma based R&B artist Rocky Sandoval and talks about his crazy journey through the music Industry for the past 10 plus years. From appearing on shows like American Idol and Making the Band, to moving to LA to chase his dreams, Rocky's story is a truly one of a kind path to success.
BGP – EP 62 – Omission Impossible + Rocky Sandoval
This week we discuss President Trumps decision to abandon the Kurdish fighting force that's been leading the charge against ISIS for the past half decade to be slaughtered by Turkey. President Obama Trump returns to the Podium to ask China, Ukraine, and Russia, (if they're listening..) to investigate his political foes. Then Vocab sit's down with with his father Carl Harvey for the 3rd and final installment of their interview, where Harvey SR tells an incredible story about the first time he met Donald Trump on the set of Saturday Night Live.
BGP – EP 61 – China, If You're Listening + Carl Harvey Pt 3
This episode could have been called 'Impeachment For Dummies', because we're breaking down step by step the sequence of events leading up to the impeachment inquiry of the President. Also, in a BGP EXCLUSIVE, we received secretly recorded audio of the FBI tip line that the whistleblower first called to file their complaint. SPOILER ALER the whistleblower is Tekashi 69. Then in part 2 of the interview of his father Carl Harvey, things get weird as Vocab asks the tough questions only he can. Like who's you favorite kid? And who get's the most money in your will? You know, journalism.
BGP – EP 60 – Ukraine, If You're Listening + Carl Harvey Pt 2
In this very special episode of the Broken Glass Podcast for the first time ever Vocab interviews a Grammy Award winner, that just so happens to be his actual father Carl Harvey of the legendary reggae band Toots And The Maytals. The BGP crew also breaks down the Trump administration's decision to ban flavored e-cigarettes after the untimely death of 5 whole Americans (or 1/5 of a Sandy Hook Massacre, depending on how you do the math). We also discuss Beto O'rourke's proposed ban and buy back of assault rifles.
BGP – EP 59 – The Smoking Gun + Carl Harvey Pt. 1
This week we're doing something different and podcasting live on location from 2 of Portland's dopest yearly events Sneaker Week PDX and Laced Up PDX. Vocab has the pleasure of doing on the spot interviews with some of the cities best and brightest including Issa, Brittain and Kayla from the Village Vibes Podcast, Zito, Mighty, Jamn 1075's Diana Hryciw, Artist BTW3, and David Jefferson of Stackin Kickz.
BGP – EP 58 – Just Kickin' It (Sneaker Week PDX & Laced Up PDX)
This holiday weekend DJ RPM takes over the show once again with another dope mix for y’all to barbecue to. Old school classics with some new school fire sprinkled in is exactly what you need to kick your Labor Day function off right. Well we got you. So turn up and turn out with your friends at the Broken Glass Podcast and have a safe weekend.
BGP Radio – Labor Day Mix 2019
This week on Portland's Best podcast (just in case you forgot) we talk about the after effects of last week's mass shooting spree. Instead of wasting our time doing silly things like offering solutions to the uniquely American problem of getting shot to death in public places by a fellow American with a small penis, we instead have a discussion about the real threat to safety in this country... video games and movies. Then Vocab sits down for part 2 of his interview with the Marshal Law Band where they have some fun, vibe out to some of their new music, talk about some real issues effecting Seattle, and play a new game called Finish That Line.
BGP – EP 57 – Facts, Fiction & Stranger Things + Marshal Law Band
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we start off by asking a question. What would it sound like if Barack Obama acted like, tweeted like, and spoke like Donald Trump does now? To answer that question we created one of our finest pieces of satire yet with our newest character Obama-Trump. Then we talk about the conflict between Donald Trump and Representative Elijah Cummings, and the obvious implications of the Presidents latest round twitter roller derby. Our special quest this week The Marshall Law band comes straight outta Seattle Washington. Stopping through on the Oregon leg of their west coast tour, the band showed up 14 deep at the studio and took over the Broken Glass Podcast like it was a stickup!

This episode of the Broken Glass Podcast we breakdown both the impact, and lack thereof, of Robert Mueller's live testimony in front of Congress. Also, in part 3 of Vocab's conversation with Astor Chambers, Astor tells the absolutely hilarious and adorable story of how he got together with his amazingly talented and beautiful wife, Emmy Award winning television personality and radio DJ Tra'Renee... Yes, that Tra'Renee. However, after this episode you will know her by another name. Tune in to find out what it is!
BGP – EP 55 – I Relinquish My Time + Astor Chambers Pt 3
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we address the controversy between the President, his supporters, and the "Squad", in an objective and unique way. With full knowledge that any criticism of Trump will undoubtedly be dismissed as partisan, we decided to exclusively use Republican critiques instead. We also take a minute to examine the not so distant history of the terms "love it or leave it / get out of our country". SPOILER ALERT, they've already been trademarked by a certain cross wielding cross section of America. Then it's time for part 2 of Vocab's interview with Adidas Senior Directer Of Statement Astor Chambers. In this part of the conversation Mr Chambers breaks down his journey from student to fixture in the world of apparel step by step. Any and every young hustler should listen to this portion of the interview for a little piece of the blueprint.
BGP – Ep 54 – Love It Or Leave It + Astor Chambers Pt 2
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we take a break from politics to have some fun with one of the more ridiculous stories of the week, the outrage over the casting of The Little Mermaid. Yup, grown ass men seem to be SUPER upset about the ethnicity of a character in a children’s movie… So there’s that. Then, as if right on cue, the Broken Glass Podcast get’s an exclusive look at the newest hero to hit the airwaves, Black Superman. Also, Vocab has the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Adidas Senior Director Of Statement Astor Chambers (@astor_aka_ac). Mr Chambers has quietly resided in a front row seat to some of the biggest moments in hip hop history. He’s seen the rise and fall of several of the most iconic brands in music and fashion, and helped shape the influence of the biggest artists on the world at both Nike and Adidas. If you like fashion, music, family, or food, this is an interview will not want to miss!
BGP – EP 53 – Mistaken Identity + Astor Chambers Pt 1

Happy 4th!!!
BGP Radio – 4th Of July Mix 2019
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we continue our analysis of the pathological nature of deception coming out of the current administration. From the absolutely absurd lies about his father's birth place, to the significantly more consequential. We lay out an objective, non partisan play-by-play of a truly unique assault on reality. The Canadian Anger Translator stops to by to celebrate the Toronto Raptor's NBA final's victory the only way he knows how. Also Vocab sits down for part 2 of his inspiring interview with high school drop out turned honor student, the Hood Nurse.
BGP – Ep 52 – Anatomy Of A Lie Pt 2 + Hood Nurse Pt 2
This week it's back to politics for the BGP! We take a look at a specific political figure and start our analysis with a particularly ridiculous lie. Then we go back exactly 35 years to begin to establish a pattern of behavior that is pretty unmistakable. We explore the real world current day effects of these lies, and ponder how this pattern will play a role in our future. The Canadian Anger Translator also stops by to show his undying support for his hometown Toronto Raptors as they take on the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Then Vocab sit's down with The Hood Nurse for part 1 of a dope interview where he tells his incredible story of going from a high school drop out, to an honer student and full time Registered Nurse. His efforts to bring positivity and medical literacy to the hip hop community are truly inspiring.
BGP – EP 51 – Anatomy Of A Lie + The Hood Nurse Part 1
This week we celebrate our milestone 50'th episode!!! To commemorate the occasion we decided to switch roles and have special guest host Shadow interview Vocab and DJ RPM. It's a dope, introspective look at how the Broken Glass Podcast grew from a dollar and a dream, to the #1 political and music podcast in the Northwest. From the first episode to the fiftieth, cheers to everyone who came along for the ride, and here's to fifty more!
BGP – EP 50 – Fifty Questions
This week is absolutely a must listen. It's our second Best Of Skits episode!!! Fans of the show know that the skits we do here at the Broken Glass Podcast are what truly make our show one of a kind. We're extremely proud of all the different characters, impressions, accents, songs, and incredibly questionable artistic decisions that go into making these sketches. If this episode doesn't entertain you, it's because you're stupid and that's your problem, not ours. Also, Vocab has the pleasure of sitting down with one of Seattle's most talented artists Perry Porter. Trust us when we say we don't use the word "artist" lightly in reference to Mr. Porter. He's a rapper with a razor sharp wit, a creator of music videos both in front and behind the camera, and one of the most prolific painters in the Northwest art scene. Enjoy.
BGP – EP 49 – Best Of Skits 2 + Perry Porter
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we're talking about hip hop conspiracy theories. Upon the untimely death of rapper/mogul Nipsey Hussle, a slew of accusations emerged. Suspects ranged from pharmaceutical company hit-men, to the Federal Government, to the LAPD. We respectfully explore all these ideas, as well as revisit some of the conspiracy theories around the death of Tupac Shakur... Spoiler alert, we know who killed Tupac!.... Seriously.
BGP – EP 48 – Tinfoil Fitteds
It's time for our second annual 420 episode! This week, owner of Botanical Labs (Oregon's number 1 cannibus extract company) Matt Newell, and the hottest comedian in Portland Lance Edward, sit down for a hilarious discussion about all things Mary Jane. Memories of past 420s, greatest movies to watch stoned, best albums to listen to high. You name it, we break it down. We also talk about what the future holds for the legalized cannibus industry, and the evolution of the comedy scene in the Northwest..... Wait.... What were we just talking about? Oh ya, HAPPY 420 people!!!
BGP – EP 47 – 420 Edition with Matt Newell & Lance Edward
This week Vocab switches roles from interviewer to interviewee when he stops by JAMN 107.5's studios to have a 1 on 1 sit down with Juma Blaq from the Northwest Breakout. They discuss everyithing going on with the Broken Glass Podcast, as well as Cardi B's latest controversy, and the current state of Portland hip hop. Not to mention this interview was recorded the same day as Nipsey Hussle's passing, so both Juma and Vocab were forced to confront the news live on air.
Bonus Glass – Jamn 107.5 NW Breakout Show Interview
This week we mourn the tragic loss of rapper, actor, community activist, and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle. Instead of focusing on his death, we chose to focus on his truly unique life, and attempt to explain to everyone (even those that never heard his music) why his death has devastated so many. In part 2 of our interview with Romaro Franceswa he breaks down the stories behind some of his most successful records. Then he takes the audience through a tour of Seattle, all the places you need to go, and some you should avoid. R.I.P to a real one.
BGP – EP 46 – Gone Too Soon + Romaro Franceswa Part 2
This week we talk about William Barr's summary, of the Robert Mueller summary, of the Mueller report (which we still haven't seen), about Russian interference in the 2016 election. We break down the good, the bad, and extremely ugly facts presented in Barr's summary. Our resident redneck Johnny Buckshot stops by to celebrate what he see's as the total exoneration of every negative accusation ever made against his dear leader Donald Trump. Then Vocab sits down with one the biggest artists from Seattle Romaro Franceswa. They talk about his childhood and how fatherhood has motivated his grind to be one of the most recognizable figures in the Northwest music scene.
BGP – EP 45 – Mueller Light + Romaro Franceswa Pt 1
This week we dive head first into the not so shocking content of HBO's hard hitting documentary Leaving Neverland. Guest host Shadow join's the show and brings a fresh perspective to the conversation, including bravely opening up about his own experience with sexual abuse. Then we debate whether or not "muting" Michael Jackson is the right thing to do, or is that just one "woke" step too far.
BGP – EP 44 – Surviving Neverland
This week we are Podcasting live from the 3rd annual NW Black Comedy Festival. BGP was blessed with the opportunity to bring out four of the hottest comedians in the city. So sit back, relax, and enjoy live performances from Hyjinx, Rissa Riss, Carter Anderson, and Lance Edward.

BGP – EP 43 – Live From The NW Black Comedy Festival
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we breakdown the Jussie Smollett fiasco from start to finish. We analyse both the hoax, and the hysteria surrounding the event from an objective, non political, but hilarious perspective. Then we discuss the current state of R. Kelly's disgusting situation and wish him all the worst. The Canadian Anger Translator stops by to show support for Trumps national emergency, and new addition to the show Luther Strongback presents This Week In Black History. Then we go #Viral with S. Loyal as he breaks down what it's like being the last of a dying breed, and gives some dope behind the scenes stories about life on the road.
BGP – Ep 42 – Pants On Fire + S. Loyal
Vocab had to take the week off to snitch on Tekashi 69, so your friendly neighborhood DJ RPM has taken over the show once again. This week he's releasing some previously unreleased Broken Glass content. We take it back to 2018 for a segment on the rash of people referring to prominent black figures as monkeys. Then, we share previously unreleased interviews with Samuel The 1st and BrenBoy. Don't forget to checkout Samuel The 1st new video Bulleit,
BGP – Ep 41 – Previously Unbroken + Samuel The 1st + BrenBoy
Last week we went a little hard on the G.O.P's whole R word problem. So this week we decided spread the pain and smack the Left around a little bit. We talk about 3 recent instances where the libs maybe, just maybe, took it a tad too far. Brain Bleed aka The Rebloodpican gets put on notice by the newest player to enter the political fray, Cernie Canders aka The Democrip. Then Vocab sits down with the Viral man himself S. Loyal, as he tells the crazy story about how he took a beat originally meant for his daughter to rap on, (but she wasn't feeling it) and turned it into one of the biggest hit records ever to come out of the Portland area.
BGP – EP 40 – When Keeping It Lib Goes Wrong + S. Loyal
This episode we pose some very simple questions for the country. If you're (The Republican Party) defending someone (Steve King) against calls of racism for 16 years straight, and then on year 16 you (The Republican Party) end up calling for that same person (Steve King) to resign because of racist remarks... WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT SAY ABOUT YOU?!... But for real though. What does that say about your judgement? Your ideology? You're character? Shit, what does that say about your skills of deduction??? Also, The Black Mannequin himself Bryan Walden stops by for part 2 of our interview, where he explains why he approaches his business with a hustlers motivation and style. He also gives us some fashion does and don'ts for the new year. Number 1 fashion "do", go to https://theblackmannequin.com/ right now to get your drip!

Well, we're off to an incredibly politically correct holiday season, so be careful what you wish for. President Trump must think Congress is full of Mexicans, because he keeps wishing they'd pay for that wall Mexico was suppose to pay for. The P.C Police wish that music, movies, and television were a little less "rapey" this time of year. We wished that I$$A would return for part 2 of his interview... and guess what? HE DID!
BGP – Ep 36 – Lock Him Up + I$$A Part 2
We're back from our vacation and ready to get to work. In this episode we discuss two very different things that make us go hmmm ?. The culture of rappers snitching on themselves, and the Electoral College. You heard me. Then Vocab has the pleasure of sitting down with one of the most talented all around artist from the Northwest, Issa. In part 1 of this amazing interview Issa breaks down the absolutely insane circumstances that brought him to signing with musical idol Akon. This interview is truly for the dream chasers.
