About Us

A show about the perilous state of the Golden State—and what that means for you, wherever you live. California is the hothouse lab of the Left, the nation-state creating the statist policies, art, and lifestyles of the future – and generating the political dollars to make them a reality in a community near you. Hosts Will Swaim (California Policy Center) and David Bahnsen (The Bahnsen Group, Fox Business News commentator, conservative activist) beam this weekly show internationally, from mostly undisclosed pirate-radio platforms west of the Sierra Nevada. [Intro music graciously provided by Los Angeles-based Metalachi, the metal/mariachi soundtrack of the near-future. Find them at Metalachi.com.]

Everybody Is an Idiot

David and Will review the politicization of human intimacy, this week starring Kamala Harris’s bedside ministry to Jacob Blake, state Senator Scott Wiener’s bill to legalize pedophilia, and the Oscars’ newest diversity initiative. Bonus: Nancy Pelosi fights for her most valued constituents (rich Californians in need of a federal tax break) and the San Bernardino gender-reveal party that literally sparked a social movement.

Everybody Is an Idiot

Not to be Confused with Janet Jackson

The state’s bill-o-matic legislative session ended this week, and with it comes the end of Santa Barbara senator Hannah-Beth Jackson’s 14-year reign of error. David and Will consider Jackson's Constitution-busting legislative history, Donald Trump’s bizarre foray into the eviction-moratorium debate, and the profusion of California obituaries. Bonus: Respect for actor Chadwick Boseman. Music by Metalachi.

Not to be Confused with Janet Jackson

False Promises, True Miseries

Nearly four years into operation, the California Resistance has produced schools that won’t educate, an ineffective (when not destructive) response to COVID-19, million-acre wildfires, and government-imposed blackouts as a sacrificial offering to Mother Earth. David and Will discuss the week’s developments, and take a look at the highs and lows -- and Californication -- of the Republican National Convention. Music by Metalachi.

Governor Gavin Newsom looks everywhere but the mirror for an explanation of this week’s “unacceptable” blackouts. In other news, David and Will consider the sideshow over Kamala Harris’s citizenship, the role of religion in politics, the National Football League’s canonization of Stephon Clark, and why two state lawmakers think their proposals to tax California’s wealthy will save the state. Music by Metalachi.

Teachers Unions to Rich Parents: 'Don’t Try This at Home -- or Do, but Don’t Succeed'

David and Will wonder: Are “learning pods” a hate crime? What’s the meaning of the first COVID-19 death of a California child? Is LA’s distance-learning plan for fall a “smart start” or just a repeat of last spring’s dumb failure? Is the California Bar exam racist? Bonus: Entertaining ourselves (Netflix, Hulu, and the Great Books podcast) in the plague year.
