Shahid Buttar and Dan Kovalik

Mickey’s first guest is Shahid Buttar, who in 2020 ran against Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her seat in the House of Representatives; he speaks about prospects for progressive change in 2021. Then author Dan Kovalik returns to the program to discuss his latest work, “Cancel This Book,” which warns of the dangers of ‘cancel culture.’


Shahid Buttar is a civil-rights lawyer; he’s worked at public-interest organizations including the Bill of Rights Defense Committee and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. In the 2020 election, he challenged long-time incumbent Nancy Pelosi for her seat in California’s 12th District (San Francisco). Dan Kovalik is a law professor and a prolific author; some of his recent books include “No More War,” and “The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela.”
