Nick is back with one final episode on the US election, featuring some listener feedback on our last two episodes (#146 and #147) on this topic. Jeremy Mendelson @CriticalTransit makes the case for why he is not voting for Clinton and the importance of voting for third parties like the Greens.

There is also some discussion on Trump, class and the urban/rural divide in the US. For more on this, check out Cracked podcast, Jimmy Dore and Chomsky on the impact of NAFTA (Trump opposes this free trade agreement).

*Despite the title of the above video (and the photoshopped hat!), Moore is NOT voting for Trump!

The episode also features a new segment ‘Angela Davis ALWAYS Makes Sense’.

There has also been yet another horrible new policy by the Australian government towards asylum seekers. For more on this, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @ProgPodcast – Katie has been posting a lot about this on there.
