Hosted by: ​Professor Jeremy Kuzmarov, Craig “Pasta” Jardula

The new Left-on-Left segment (LOL—which also stands for Laugh Out Loud) provides critical commentary on left wing media and political figures in the United States from a left-wing perspective, in a way that is enjoyable and accessible to a wide audience. The show features radio personality and ex-Navy enlisted man Craig “Pasta” Jardula, who fashions himself the Captain, and Professor Jeremy Kuzmarov, who is managing editor of CovertAction Magazine. Each week, the two hosts dissect some of the major shortcomings and gaffes seen in left-wing political circles. They take on topics that are taboo in left-wing media (ie. political assassinations, CIA covert operations, false flag operations), criticize left-wing institutions and luminaries, and provide independent political analysis. A key purpose of the show is to facilitate critical self-reflection and help get people on the left to think more outside the box and to not subscribe to a dangerous herd mentality. “Pasta” supplies a good dose of humor each week, while Kuzmarov is able to draw on his reservoir of historical knowledge to try and help inform listeners/viewers of important things going on in the U.S. and world.
