Episode #747: A Lot of Bad Shit
First Broadcast: 10/17/16
I originally thought I was going to discuss the second "debate" between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but as we were preparing to tape our program, several different women went public with their accounts of how Donald Trump groped, kissed, or otherwise touched them inappropriately, completely contradicting his denial during the debate that he had not done such a thing, and inadvertantly corroborating his brags to Billy Bush about how he likes to "grab" women "by the pussy." It's almost enough to distract people from realizing that the rise of Trump and his backing by the accurately described "basket of deplorables" (mostly men, it seems) provides us an up-close answer to the question, "How did Germany allow Hitler to rise to power?" It was a question that puzzled people in the Allied countries for decades after World War II ended. Complex experiments were devised to derive some clues, since the thought that anyone like Hitler could come to power in a country like the United States was almost truly incomprehensible to many. And yet, here we are, "banality of evil" be damned. I shudder to think what we might be talking about next week.

So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a this neat little public access TV show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else, Kim. The complicated answer is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times, the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.

If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel like sending me snail mail, the address is:

Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009

You can also email me at, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.

And now, the "Thought of the Moment" . . .

Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
