Will & Willie FINAL 2016 Election Special – TV

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

With all editing from the Facebook Live broadcast on Tuesday, our TV/Radio Talk Show hits hard, and yet still aims for the funny bone, on the 2016 Elections. There has never been an election year like this one, and there’s no Talk Show out there like the combo of Will Durst and Willie Brown. The Radio version, in 3 parts, covers it all with humor and insight. It’s not your right-wing echo chamber show. It’s the San Francisco Point of View. With no apologies priligy online. We tell it as we see it, not how they sell it.

All three parts of our hour long program can be accessed by clicking the image. 

Part 1 – We start out riffing on the differences in how the media reports and the public perceives Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and what might happen with Tuesday’s election and it’s aftermath. 

Part 2 – Heather Knight of The San Francisco Chronicle, and writer of the weekly City Insider column, is our special guest. We cover local & state propositions and the problem of government bureaucracy.

Part 3 – Heather stays with us for a Q&A with the audience, and our first question comes from Stephanie Weisman of The Marsh Theater. We end urging the audience to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!
