Trumpocalypse

This is an unscheduled broadcast for Ungagged, in reaction to the news that Donald Trump has won the American elections and will be the next POTUS. We didn't expect to put out a podcast today, so it is a little shorter than usual, and maybe a little more emotional.

 

These are our live reactions, as the news was breaking.

 

Speaking in this special will be Victoria Pearson, Chuck Hamilton, Amber Daniels and Steve McAuliffe.

 

As always, we at Ungagged don't always agree with each other, but we do respect each other'says right to speak and to be heard.

Music in this pod:

Mullen - The Devil is Innocent

Thee Faction - Who Benefits

Joe Solo - Last Man  Standing

Roy  Moller - Another Man's God.
