The Matt McNeil Show
Matt McNeil is a proud Minnesotan, on live weekdays from 3pm to 4pm. Matt has been living most of his life in the state of his birth. He's a husband, a father of three, a veteran, and a broadcaster. He's worked in radio for over 25 years, starting with Armed Forces Radio in Nuremberg, Germany. He currently lives in Hopkins.
On his show Matt talks politics from a Democrat/Progressive perspective, but he'll also venture into parenting, religion, entertainment, sports, gardening, business, cooking, and many other subjects. He interviews politicians, political insiders, authors, pundits, entertainers, and artists, and loves talking to the listeners.
Besides being on air, you can read his thoughts at the 'Progressive Citizen X' blog.
Before we get into our big topics we talk spring break and Captain Marvel. Then how Bill Barr was never going to write a Mueller Report summary critical of Trump, how the media dropped the ball covering the report, and what will the SCOTUS do when they’re asked if the report should be released.
Molly Beck joins to talk the latest on the Republicans attempts to take away the power of the Governor and Attorney General after Democrats claimed the seats back in the midterms. Dermot Flanagan joins to talk Brexit and its effects on Ireland.
Bears are invading northern Minnesota! Then Matt talks about Minnesota Republican education policy only benefiting the extremely wealthy. Also Jeff Stein talks national politics including Republicans not calling out Trump for attacking McCain and whether the Senate can override Trump’s first veto on border all funding.
