About

Acronym TV: because you stand for something.

Acronym TV with Dennis Trainor, Jr. cuts through the crap, tells the truth and can even make you laugh.

Opinionated, energized, and often funny, Acronym is seriously unserious, reverentially irreverent, and deeply committed to telling stories about the interconnected movement of movements in a way that entertains, informs, and inspires.
