The Blasphemy, the Bureaucracy & the Bernie | G...
Steve, Todd, Aaron, and the Daily Wire’s Josh Hammer discuss a week full of leftists missing the point on anything and everything remotely related to the issues. The loudmouth leftists that conservatives tend to scoff at are extremely dangerous, because they would compose the bureaucracy needed to impose tyranny if the socialists take power. Then, does Bernie Sanders have a clear path to his party’s nomination? If he takes a key early state, he might just cruise to victory. In Hour Two, Steve responds to listener feedback and goes on one of his classic rants about the rise and fall of Pete Buttigieg. Finally, is student loan debt forgiveness viable? Is it right?

Let Curt Schilling In Already! | Guest: Daniel ...
Steve goes off on the people keeping legendary pitcher Curt Schilling out of baseball’s Hall of Fame for purely political reasons.

To Beat Your Opponent, Respect Him First | Gues...
We’re two weeks out from the Iowa Caucuses, and the latest poll is an absolute debacle in the eyes of one Steve Deace. The media has gone to bat for Elizabeth Warren time and again, but Bob Vander Plaats explains why the New York Times’ attempt at a dual endorsement featuring her and Amy Klobuchar could be a bad sign for her campaign. In Hour Two, the team responds to some questions posed on social media over the weekend. Among them are thoughts about the age of the Earth, the Chiefs’ chances in Super Bowl LIV, Catholic vs. Protestant interpretations of Scripture, and the lack of sinfulness in speculation (even when it comes to betting).

Make Gulags Great Again! | Guests: D.C. McAllis...
The Deace Group is on the job yet again, breaking down a cringeworthy week for the Democratic candidates. Steve and Aaron are joined by author D.C.

In Hour Two, Steve presents an email from a listener who wonders whether Steve makes the effort to be gentle when discussing “PG-13-rated” material on the show.

A Feckless Feud on a Notorious Network | Guest:...
The feud between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders rose to the forefront during Tuesday’s Democratic debate, but does it even matter when it’s the equivalent of a political pillow fight? Then, the team plays an hour-long round of Buy, Sell, or Hold? Among the topics discussed are another developing scandal at Penn State, a comparison between LSU star Joe Burrow and NFL legend Joe Montana, and a list of sci-fi films that effectively kills Steve’s will to live.

In Hour Two, the team thoroughly breaks down the ten-part Netflix series ‘Messiah’ (spoiler alert: They will tell you exactly how it ends).

Ignoring the Truth at All Costs | Guest: Bob Va...
The debacle continues, as leftists just won’t get off their high horse to stand with the freedom-loving students taking to the streets throughout Iran.

Then, Bob Vander Plaats joins the program to shed some additional light on the developing race between hard-core progressives Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. In Hour Two, Steve opens the phones to ask listeners if he should accept a new role that could broaden his reach as a host.

Taking Partisanship to Unprecedented Levels | G...
Elvis, Princess Diana, and … General Soleimani? That list is just one example of the anti-American bilge that was spewed by the mainstream media and Democratic leaders over the past week. Ricky Gervais’ lambasting of the Hollywood elites at the Golden Globes was both welcome and unexpected, but what has happened to his career trajectory in its wake? In Hour Two, the team returns to discussion of the modern evolution of Star Wars, and Steve doesn’t hold back on his disdain for the filmmakers. Finally, the team responds to listener feedback on several topics discussed at the end of 2019.
95 min
413
Truth of Scripture Doesn’t Hinge on Personal Be...
Steve, Todd, and Aaron continue to lament the mainstream media’s openly anti-American coverage of the Iranian situation. Interventionism in the Middle East doesn’t work, but people should realize that it’s not the only option. Then, author Mary Jo Sharp joins the program to explain why so many Americans who have turned their backs on the church come back to the fundamental truth of Christianity. In Hour Two, for Theology Thursday, Steve takes aim at those who preach the gospel for all the wrong reasons. Finally, Aaron poses three non-political questions about the impact of music and theater, the best jobs in the trades, and whether the Marvel Comic Universe is a better film franchise than "The Lord of the Rings."

Don’t Back Down and There Won’t Be a War | Gues...
Steve gets on his soapbox about the approach America needs to take to avert a major war in the Middle East. Simply put, President Trump should call the ayatollah’s bluff, something previous presidents have failed to do. Then, the team plays a game of Buy, Sell, or Hold? that touches on instant replay, Super Tuesday primaries, and Steve’s hoarding of holiday cookie dough. In Hour Two, Daniel Horowitz joins the program to explain why the killing of Qassem Soleimani was an act of de-escalation, not an act leading to war. Finally, the new XFL is experimenting with some new rules. Will any work their way into the NFL or college games?

Stooping to an All-Time Low? | 1/7/20
“Enemies of the people” is not a title that Steve throws around lightly, but the latest statements by several high-ranking journalists and powerful Democrats leave no other term that can sufficiently describe them. Then, Steve Deace himself gets put on the spot in the new year’s first round of Fake News or Not? In Hour Two, the guys break their silence on "The Rise of Skywalker" for Pop Culture Tuesday. Be warned, there are spoilers galore and some less-than-flattering commentary about the film.

Steve Makes His Predictions for 2020 | Guest: B...
The Steve Deace Show theme for 2020 is “Assume you’re being lied to,” because fake news is everywhere, no matter who you’re listening to. Then, Bob Vander Plaats joins the program to discuss the evolution of the Democrat field in the Iowa polls ahead of next month’s caucuses. Is Joe Biden toast if he finishes fourth or lower in the state? In Hour Two, Steve unveils his predictions for the year, and his outlook on the Democratic race would be historic if it comes to pass.

Be Smart, Don’t Start | Guests: Jeff Fisher & K...
Jeff Fisher and Keith Malinak are back on the program to discuss topics such as the Democrats’ half-hearted response to the airstrike that eliminated two major Iranian military leaders. When should you offer some charity to the homeless and when are you getting ripped off? Be smart, don’t use tobacco, because Jeffy definitely sees the world a little differently now that he’s a non-smoker. In Hour Two, Jeffy examines a list of downright nasty foods that Baby Boomers simply won’t let leave the public consciousness. Also, prepare to have your mind blown by the story of a man falling victim to a “secret shopper” scam.

'Pope-ing' Ain’t Easy & More TSA Horrors | Gues...
Jeff Fisher and Keith Malinak are on the program, and Keith is in seventh heaven following a delivery from his secret Santa. Pope Francis recently slapped a young girl, but Pope Jeffy thinks he understands what the Holy Father goes through. A plan to construct a 300-acre commune for 150,000 homeless people looks okay on paper, but it would be a fiasco in practice. In Hour Two, Keith vents his frustration at the TSA’s blatant double standard for what can be allowed through airport security.

Impeachment Is (Not Really) Nigh | Guest: Danie...
Steve answers the fundamental question of why so many conservatives seem to love GOP lawmakers who are all bark and no bite. Then, the team plays an extended game of Buy, Sell, or Hold? that features questions regarding Joe Biden’s future post-Iowa, Urban Meyer’s future in the NFL, the greatest campaign slogans of all time, and the worst Christmas songs of all time.

Hide the Children, Christmas is Canceled | 12/1...
Steve loses all hope for humanity watching USC students fail to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Then, the team holds “conservative” media (and perhaps Steve Deace himself) to account with a game of "Fake News or Not?" In Hour Two, the guys dive headlong into Pop Culture Tuesday with Hallmark movies for a “woke” America. Spoiler alert: Christmas is canceled. Oh, and there’s supposedly a big movie coming out in a couple of days …

Steve, Todd, and Aaron welcome D.C. McAllister to the program to discuss the week that was for loudmouth leftists.

Steve, Todd, and Aaron sift through the fallout of Jersey City and discuss the rise and (inevitable) fall of Pete Buttigieg.

The New Gold Standard for Buy, Sell, or Hold? |...

The Steve MAGA Show? | 12/4/19
Steve and the team simply can’t even any more with the Democrats’ refusal to acknowledge Joe Biden’s corruption.

The GOP Just Won’t Stop Betraying Its Base | Gu...
