Last Saturday around 11:30 AM, I tuned in to his show on WCPT, "Chicago's Progressive Talk". About a minute in, he broke down and began whimpering, sobbing, and blubbing about the Supreme Court and how we just HAD to vote for Obama. I quickly tuned out. A cuppa McD's fine coffee later, the bad taste in my mouth was gone.
I suspect you could find a podcast, but I wouldn't recommend that as a good investment of time.
PS - I'm trying to shame him. Anyone think it will work? Read below the fold...

The Debt Limit can be BYPASSED!! (I. Rendered Unconstitutional, II. Have US Treasury produce 500 billion platinum coins (debt free) which can pay the entire debt, render the limit useless and then we can all put Republicans in a plane to China i.e., kick them in their rear!
First note that The National Debt Is a Republican Congress measure passed in 1971 by eliminating the Gold Standard http://t.co/H8Ppd5N this could be reversed.

I am increasingly convinced that we are headed to default. Happy to be wrong.
It is not just that everyone has painted themselves into a rhetorical corner. Ever since I learned that Eric Cantor is actually vested in default, and ever since news of this generated a thundering silence from the Very Serious People, I began to understand that reason might no prevail.
Warren Mosler called this back in March:

This is the latest example of why. Another "Left" institution turns out to be an epic fail when it comes to women.
Casey Frazee arrived in South Africa in 2009 as an eager Peace Corps Volunteer, honored to be a part of an organization known for doing good around the world.
But after being sexually assaulted, Casey discovered a glaring flaw in the organization she idealized: a total lack of support for survivors of sexual violence and a"victim-blaming" response to rape.

More than 250 of America's most eminent legal scholars have signed a letter protesting against the treatment in military prison of the alleged WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning, contesting that his "degrading and inhumane conditions" are illegal, unconstitutional and could even amount to torture.
The list of signatories includes Laurence Tribe, a Harvard professor who is considered to be America's foremost liberal authority on constitutional law. He taught constitutional law to Barack Obama and was a key backer of his 2008 presidential campaign. ..... Read below the fold...
