Episode #4: When Did Capitalists Give up on Capitalism?
On episode #4 of The Ann & Phelim Scoop, we discussed sixteen-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg's latest venture and other news from the radical environmental left. We also ask the question, "when did capitalists give up on capitalism?" The economic system that brought peace and prosperity to the United States has been increasingly attacked as of late. We also update you on the latest from "Crazy California" and discuss Mark Halperin's upcoming book, " How to Beat Trump: America’s Top Political Strategists on What It Will Take." Ann wraps up the episode by sharing her mother's delicious recipe for rhubarb and almond pie.  If you enjoyed the episode, be sure to give us a shout on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Episode #3: Ann & Phelim's Message for Bill & Hillary Clinton, Ferguson, and The Hunt
 On the most recent episode of The Ann & Phelim Scoop, our hosts opened with an “apology” to Bill and Hillary Clinton that you definitely don’t want to miss. The Obamas are settling into their role at Netflix! Or, are they? Our hosts discussed the new venture and their skepticism about the substance of the former First Family’s actual role at the media giant.  The five year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri just passed. Phelim discussed his FERGUSON verbatim play, which premiered in Los Angeles and New York in 2015 and 2017 and consists of word-for-word dialogue from grand jury testimony. Our hosts then compared the actual facts of the case to its treatment by the mainstream media and the Left.  Ann & Phelim also talked about the recent cancellation of the Universal Studios film The Hunt, a fictional tale of blue-state liberals “hunting” red-state Trump supporters for sport. The film received significant backlash from conservatives and President Trump himself.  Our hosts also provided an update on environmentalist Josh Fox’s pitiful fundraising campaign and the recently released book This is Not a Drill: An Extinction Rebellion Handbook, which is full of climate change hysteria. Ann rounded out the podcast by sharing a delicious frittata recipe, which is great to serve at brunch, or to store in the fridge as a healthy snack.
