The Matt McNeil Show – September 20, 2021

Hour 1 segments 1/2: Yesterday’s Vikings last second meltdown was more proof that new stadiums for pro sports teams won’t bring in more money for the state, championships, prestige or anything else.

Hour 1 segments 3/4: Ogimaa Giniw Ikwe of Native Roots Radio joins Matt. She talks about the MN DNR’s very shady relationship with Enbridge on Line 3. Enbridge so far has had 28 environmental violations on Line 3 but only received one fine from the DNR. We also talk about the lack of legacy media reporting on the environmental problems Enbridge has created building the line.

Hour 2 segment 1: An update on Matt’s search for a new church. Amid worker shortages,, a Minnesota based costume company will spend a half-million dollars to house workers in local hotels who will make a little more than $18/hour. Would they need to spend that half million if they paid all their employees $18/hour?

Hour 2 segment 2: The MN COVID-19 update. And how ridiculous COVID conspiracy theorists sound when they “do their own research” and take horse dewormer as their treatment for COVID.

Hour 2 segment 3: How anti-vaxxers are getting more unhinged and violent around the country attacking doctors, teachers and school board members.

Hour 2 segment 4: GOP candidate for governor Scott Jensen calls for ‘civil disobedience’ of COVID policies. What kind of “disobedience” is Jensen calling for? Something similar to 1/6?
