episode 68: How to Lose the Information War with Nina Jankowicz

They’re not stopping in 2020, and their tactics are expanding. It’s so important to understand what’s happening and what we can do about it, so we’ve invited Nina Jankowicz on the show.

Nina is the Disinformation Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars...

episode 65: Eliza Orlins' Amazing Race

From the racial biases in policing to the criminalization of poverty and for-profit prisons, our criminal justice system is broken. We've asked Alyssa Milano's friend Eliza Orlins on the show this week to talk about these issues and more...

episode 63: Talking the Trumpocalypse with Anti-Trump Conservative David Frum


Many of you may be surprised by our guest for this episode. David Frum is a proud conservative, having served in the George W. Bush administration as a speechwriter, where he is credited with coining the phrase “access of evil.” He and I don’t agree on a lot of things.

But it turns out Donald Trump is the great uniter after all. Following on the success of his book Trumpocracy, David has just released his book Trumpocalypse: Restoring American Democracy...

episode 62: Democracy in One Episode or Less with David Litt, Barack Obama's Funny Speechwriter


Today’s episode is a treat. We’ve invited David Litt, one of President Obama’s speechwriters, on to the show. He’s very funny, and we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t a bittersweet interview remembering when we had a president who had a sense of humor and was able to complete a sentence. David’s got a new book out, Democracy in One Book or Less, and we think you’ll find our conversation inspiring. I know we sure did...

episode 61: Making Their Way Home: Historian Blair Imani talks Juneteenth, Police Violence, George Floyd


George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Ahmaud Arbery. Stephon Clark. Tamir Rice. Michael Brown. Philando Castile. John Crawford. Akai Gurley. Freddie Gray. We say their names over and over again. The list never stops. Black and Brown Americans murdered by police at wildly disproportionate rates, and a white America which refuses to surrender our power and privilege to stop this from happening.

And in the middle of the latest national response to the murder of George Floyd comes Juneteenth...

episode 59: COVID-19 Impact on ICE Detainees and the Immigrant Community


ICE and CBP continue to detain immigrants in facilities without adequate medical care, sanitation supplies, or even the ability to maintain a safe social distance. At the same time, our weak, failed president is using the pandemic as an excuse to end all legal immigration to our country, increase family separations, and even deport sick immigrants after diagnosis. Our guests today are on the right side of that fight, working to make life better for immigrant communities...
