Today on the Dom Giordano program, Dom was joined by a broadcasting legend with some great stories about The Sultan of Swoon, Frank Sinatra. Also, Dom discussed a new way colleges will be able to judge a potential student’s victimhood, the everlasting damage that District Attorney Larry Krasner reckons on Philadelphia, and the outdated lifestyle restrictions placed on priests by the Catholic Church.

An oft-talked about topic on the Dom Giordano Program is the power held by Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner and his steady effort to seemingly cause havoc in the city through lax criminal justice enforcement policies. Dom’s take went national last night, when Fox News host Tucker Carlson was joined by US Attorney William McSwain to connect the dots between Krasner and political powerhouse and billionaire, George Soros. McSwain used the platform to explain that, through Krasner as a proxy, Philadelphia is being used as a “laboratory for an experiment of Soros-funded prosecutors.” Dom breaks down the conversation between Carlson and McSwain and asks who, other than Krasner, should be considered Philadelphia’s political power broker.

A regular face on Fox News, Father Jonathan Morris is dropping the prefix from his name. Morris, who’s been a Catholic priest for 25 years, decided to leave the priesthood this week. Why? He wanted a wife and a family, which is something the Catholic Church still disallows for its’ priests. Dom has long said that the lifestyle restrictions are preventative from the young men wanting to join the priesthood and asks listeners whether or not priests should be allow to marry.

Sid Mark, a broadcasting legend known for his Sounds of Sinatra radio program, was recently nominated to the Radio Hall of Fame. Sid joined Dom to have a discussion about the honor, and tells some great stories about getting his start in radio and his first time meeting Frank Sinatra. On July 15th, listeners nationwide will be able to vote for Sid’s entry into the Radio Hall of Fame, a designation deserved after a legendary career spanning 6 decades.

The College Board, which administers the SAT for high school graduates and college hopefuls, decided to throw their hats in the ring as social justice warriors. A new “Adversity Index”, which Dom has rightfully deemed the “Victim Score”, awards a confidential score to each student based on how privileged the student’s upbringing has been. An idea that hints of a dystopian social score, the College Board hopes to use the new index to help less privileged students get prioritized recognition at schools to which they apply. Dom tears apart the new idea, explaining how the score reflects a negative aspect of society, and why the score is a negative addition to the college application process.
