My daughter Grace, a 27-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter, weighs in on the presidential race, the Trump and Sanders phenoms, and she makes a November predication. We kick off episode 28 of Scott Ott Show with our first-ever live interview (had a few audio hiccups, but straightened it out around the 6:10 min. mark.) Then, two viewer questions launch us into a passionate tribute to the pursuit of happiness, and of telling the federal government to stick it. And we end with some funny stories and a song.
I also carved out my interview with Grace from the rest, so you can get right to the best part of the show.
A black, woman, civil rights champion will be the face of the 20 dollar bill, supplanting Andrew Jackson, and I couldn’t be happier. Let’s have some fun at his expense on episode 45 of Scott Ott Podcast. (Sponsored by BillWhittle.com)

If I don’t support the Republican Party’s presidential nominee (e.g. if it’s Donald Trump) am I still a Republican? And what is a Republican anyway? What are the benefits and obligations of membership? We non-Trumpians may have a big decision before us. Episode #35 of Scott Ott Podcast should help us get ready for this political worst-case scenario.
Billionaire progressive George Soros says that the Islamic State (ISIS), with help from the Republican Party wants you to hate your Muslim neighbor so he’ll join ISIS to prove that he’s not a terrorist. And they know just how to do it. Scott Ott Podcast (#19) wages intellectual (or at least, comical) jihad on this “extra-rational” argument, with a little help from Gilbert Gottfried, Yoda, Jackie Mason, and Woody Allen.
Episode #19 of Scott Ott Podcast contains audio excerpts from Scott Ott Show originally streamed live on YouTube December 28, 2015.
