    In the final hour of today's show, Dom welcomes former Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to the Program to discuss the heightened crime in and around Philadelphia. First, Giordano and Williams dissect yesterday's weekly press conference held by current DA Krasner, in which he answered questions as to whether tourists should feel safe coming into the city. Then, Giordano and Williams discuss who's to blame for the heightened violence, debating whether Coronavirus had as much an impact on the spike as the DA sells in his press conferences. Then, Williams offers up his own causalities that have led to the current situation, discussing a deep lack of accountability borne in a lack of prosecutions and radically progressive policies. After playing Dom's Money Melody for the day, Williams returns for further discussion, turning to solutions being employed in other cities that have seen their crime rates decrease. Then, to round out the hour, Dom again asks listeners whether they think the United States should participate in the Beijing Olympics.

    In today's third hour, Giordano invites Bradley Lanning onto the show, to discuss why he's chosen to primary Representative Brian Fitzpatrick in the first district in the upcoming election. First, Lanning explains the concept and the mission of the America First Party, which has thrown their support behind Lanning. Lanning explains that America First is very self-explanatory, noting that the primary goal is to prioritize the needs of Americans. Giordano asks whether or not this is drawn from stances by the Trump administration, which Lanning affirms, further explaining which policies he'd hope to push for while in office. Lanning also tells why he's running against Fitzpatrick, telling that for far too long, Fitzpatrick, in order to frame himself as a moderate, has voted against conservative causes. Then, Giordano asks about individual issues, gathering Lanning's thoughts on the large infrastructure bill that Fitzpatrick voted for, arguing that while bipartisan is useful, his vote did not make much sense. Then, after playing Dom's movie-themed Money Melody, Giordano welcomes Virginia Jorgensen to the show to discuss a rally today that she organized, focused on the heighted crime on the Temple campus. Jorgensen, who has a daughter at Temple, organized other parents to rally with her to try and bring some sense of safety back to the Temple campus, after another Temple student was murdered on campus last week. Jorgensen explains what the parents have spoken out about, focusing on the Temple and Philadelphia police, which urges Giordano to question why the court system nor Larry Krasner have been considered at fault for the heightened crime. Also, Jorgensen explains what change has already been enacted after working with the TUPD, and tells as a mother whether she's comfortable with her daughter continuing attendance at the University.

    Dom leads off the second hour of today's show by picking up the conversation centered on the push to add women to the military draft. Dom takes callers, including a woman who was a voluntary service member, who asks why this is even a topic of discussion in the political realm. Giordano explains that this is a purely political move, mostly because a mandatory draft is not even on the radar. Then, Giordano welcomes famed Philadelphia sportswriter Ray Didinger to the show. Every week, Didinger joins the Program to run down the most recent Eagles game. This week, Didinger and Giordano recap yesterday's win over the Jets, with the most pressing topic becoming a new QB controversy bubbling after a great outing by backup quarterback Gardner Minshew. Ray offers his thoughts on the controversy, discussing whether Minshew should retain the starting job once Hurts is healthy enough to play in the eyes of the front office. Didinger explains that he thinks the Philadelphia fan base should take a few breaths before charging full bore toward another controversy, after seeing how a similar debate tore apart the Wentz and Foles locker room. Then, Giordano asks about the Eagles receiving options with Dallas Goedert emerging as a true weapon, and Ray and Dom debate whether Hurts could gain anything from Minshew's fruitful appearance.

McNesby tells that the officer was able to heroically drive himself to Temple University hospital, and started providing details of the incident during a time many would be paralyzed by shock. Then, Giordano asks McNesby for his thoughts on the rampant crime in Philadelphia, asking him for his underlying causes behind the situation, which McNesby, similarly to McSwain, chalks up to a lack of accountability wrought on by progressive policies pushed by Mayor Kenney and DA Krasner.

Rosica announces that it has come to the group's attention that Montgomery County is teetering on the decision to close in-person education and instead revert to virtual learning due to positive cases in schools.

First, Dom reveals developing details around the murder of another Temple student, a topic that took over much of yesterday's show, telling that the alleged perpetrator has turned himself in. Giordano plays back clips from Mayor Kenney, who blamed the rising violence after the shooting of an off-duty officer on gun shows such as the monthly event over in Oaks, PA. Then, Bill McSwain, former United States attorney and Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate, rejoins the Dom Giordano Program for a wide-ranging conversation covering multiple topics. First, Giordano asks McSwain for his thoughts on Mayor Kenney's new angle in pushing back against the rampant crime, blaming gun shows and asking for federal help in controlling guns, rather than looking within at the policies enacted by his administration. McSwain takes us inside what it was like working with the Kenney administration, and tells that accountability and deterrence are the two biggest issues the city faces concerning crime, an attitude which was brought forth by Kenney and District Attorney Krasner policies. Then, McSwain and Giordano pontificate why the mainstream media within Philadelphia refuse to hold Krasner accountable for what's lead to the climate in the city. Then, Giordano switches over to state-wide issues, discussing planned raises given to state lawmakers which McSwain is against, and the issue of energy production in the state of Pennsylvania.

Then, Giordano asks Makary for an update on natural and herd immunity, a portion of the pandemic that seems to have fallen out of the debate, asking whether we will or have reached what was initially the end goal for the pandemic. Then, after Dom offers his Money Melody for the day, he moves back into the national sphere of politics, playing back Jim Cramer on his CNBC show suggesting that the military should take over and run a national vaccine mandate. Dom explains why this is such a radical and ridiculous suggestion, asking whether people like Cramer recognize that they are welcoming in authoritarianism.

    Today, Dom Giordano leads off the Dom Show by discussing revelations surrounding the suspect in the murder of a 21-year old Temple University student over the long holiday weekend. According to Ralph Cipriano of BigTrial.net, suspect Latif Williams was arrested on August 14th and charged with 8 crimes. Allegedly, after having bail set at $200,000, a municipal court judge lowered the bail for Williams to an unsecured $200,000, meaning that the culprit would not have to pay to stay out of jail. DA Larry Krasner filed no appeal, and because of this, Williams was a free man able to commit such a heinous crime. Giordano ties it to other crimes in Philadelphia, and notes that this is just one example of the horrible policies of the Krasner administration biting the citizens of Philadelphia again. Then, Giordano brings the discussion to a national scope, discussing the potential nominees for a presidential run in 2024 after Vice President Harris and President Biden's approval rating continue to plummet. Then, Giordano returns to the local stage to discuss the recent voting history of Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, which Dom has taken umbrage with, particularly his vote in favor of the ‘bipartisan' infrastructure bill, and tells of Bradley Lanning, an entrant into the congressional race as a Republican opponent to Fitzpatrick.

Giordano plays back clips from the trial, including the admittance by a key witness that Rittenhouse only fired after the witness drew a gun and approached Rittenhouse.  Then, after Giordano gets a tip that Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw may be in consideration for a job in New York City, both debate how one could be considered for such a job after the recent track record here in Philadelphia. Then, due to the occasion, Col. Tom Manion joins the show to explain what Veterans Day means to him. First, Manion and Giordano discuss the significance of today in particular, explaining that for the first time in 20 years, we are celebrating a Veterans Day without an active war. Also, Manion discusses the culmination of his organization centered around his son, Travis, and tells of the relationship he shared with his brothers in arms. (Photo by Sean Krajacic-Pool/Getty Images) See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
