Welcome to Liberally Correct!
Fellow millennial Matthew Hirte joins Eric Mack and Brett Madsen to discuss the aftermath of the 2016 United States presidential election. As a Bernie Sanders supporter, Matthew believes the Democrats rigged the primaries and stole the election from Bernie, which Eric and Brett disagree with. The discussion dives into the history of Matthew’s political views, why Bernie decided to run as a Democrat rather than as an Independent, and why if the Left cannot find a way to unite, the Republicans will be in control for the foreseeable future.

This Episode’s 45 RPM Single
In each episode, we will create a 45 RPM single with the intro and outro music (each typically taken from the same album). The intro music is the A-side; the outro music is the B-side. We believe music should be more relevant when it comes to politics, so we’re showcasing some songs we like each episode.
Even though this technically violates copyright law since the songs are not “podsafe,” you have options below to stream or buy the album or songs in order to offset any potential revenue lost on the part of the artist or record label. (Hopefully this will keep them from coming after us to cease and desist for, you know, giving their music free advertising.)
If you like what you hear, give it some extra spins (and let us know in the comments below that you’re buying or streaming the songs so we can actually have a legal defense in the future).
A-side: “Only Shallow” by My Bloody Valentine, from Loveless (1991)
B-side: “Soon” by My Bloody Valentine, from Loveless (1991)
