As a bonus for listeners, we’re sharing the first episode of a new MSNBC podcast, “Velshi Banned Book Club,” an act of resistance against the epidemic of book banning. In each episode, a different author of a banned book joins Ali Velshi—including Margaret Atwood, Nikole Hannah-Jones, Laurie Halse Anderson and more—to talk about why their work is being targeted and about the literature itself. “Velshi Banned Book Club” is a series rooted in literary and cultural analysis and in the notion of reading as resistance. Listen to the first two episodes now and follow the series:
...Plus, DeSantis eager to disclaim his elitist roots to curry favor with MAGA populists
...Plus, 'Mad, mad world': Republicans make a mockery of primary debate before it even starts
...Plus, Despite years of kowtowing and sucking up to Donald Trump, he is spurning their Republican primary debate. Was it worth it?

I still don't understand why they don't just lock the gangster up and make him REALLY want to expedite the process. This is the way I would deal with it and why I should not be able to.

We have all wondered what they wear under those robes, and as long as they are going to be aloft the judgemental pedestal, we're gonna look, no matter how disgusted we might be by it.

Can we take this as Garland keeping these cases compartmented? Whatever the outcome, I don't get the feeling there is corrupt intent and the political consequences will be short-lived once Jack Smith starts prosecuting those behind the Jan 6th insurrection and Trump's theft of ts/sci documents. The question of the folders with missing contents, what he did them, and who he gave access to the lot of the documents still need answers.

Did they play the first 12 minutes twice or am I going nuts? 🤪

So they're going to charge the maniac with "incompetent homicide". Why shouldn't they sentence him to an incompetent execution?

Here is a very visible opportunity to see the difference between Trump and Biden as far as rescuing Puerto Rico. The mess from the previous hurricane is still there. I suspect no paper towel tossing as the main event this time. Tonight I would imagine much of the island is in dire straits.

Younger American voting men should keep in mind how much it costs to raise a child. Older ones too. If a child is not in their plans yet then they need to vote.

3:30, Monumentous? I think that isn't a word. Momentous is a word, as is monumental. This is not the first time I've heard it. Two countries separated by a common language🇬🇧

Show is good, but the sound is hard to listen to. It's very echo-y & sharp/shrill. Will put me off long term.
