What an incredibly powerful podcast. I learned so much about the state and causes of authoritarianism around the world. I appreciate your introducing us to journalist Rula Jubreal and her work to expose the threats, dangers, and the tragic consequences of authoritarianism, and authoritarianism's basis in racism.
Thank You, Very interesting.
great comments from Kara
The annoying music beds
Such an enlightening conversation on so many levels! Thank you.
I really liked this episode, and I understand why you set aside the anti-capitalist argument, but for nuclear power, it really is the elephant in the room. All the documented nuclear power plant failures have been the result of cost saving measures colliding with poor working conditions. I'm fine with nuclear power as a concept, but without significant labor improvements, and regulation that is not sensitive to the needs of capital, it is dangerous. That is true of coal and oil and hydro, too. I don't see how the energy problem can be solved in end stage capitalism.
this is a great

what a retard this guy is
Chris, brilliant choice. I've heard John McWhorter in 5 minute blocks for 10 or 15 years! I appreciate the discussion you had with him so much!
Chris. I am with you on most issues. This podcast really came off as quite snobby. I really appreciate Michelle's reporting and writing as well. Frankly, I fail to see a mask less rose garden gathering any differently from what Michelle described. The "middle" I would imagine (not really imagining), would not "understand", given stances publicly taken. I can hear people that I hang with....."can't bake bread? google it!". It's insulting to those of us who are not part of the intelligentsia. This is not a slam. It is only meant as a piece of advice I guess (which could be interpreted as snobby😋).
This was such a refreshing and thought-provoking interview. I'm going to listen more than once, for sure. Great work, Chris!
What is the name of the rule that they got rid of that allowed the filibuster? Because instead of writing my senators to get rid of the filibuster, maybe we write them to reinstate the original rule.

Excellent story. I think you are an excellent host. This story would have been helpful to be aired on TV weeks before the election. Why do we have to listen to podcasts to hear actual news? Why do most cable news shows repeat the same story/tweet verbatim, 24/7 with different faces? Why does cable news air opinions, not facts 80% of the time? Viewers think they are facts because the show has NEWS in its title. Some guests are paid lobbyists, not educated professionals in whatever field they are talking about. That's how the deniers of climate change started. Paid Lobbyists appearing as professionals on the "News". I have wasted years of my life watching the cable version of "The View" called the News. Can anything be done about it? We now have conspiracy-mongering ripping our country apart, calling themselves " News, " in actually they are an easy way for the people involved to make millions/billions. Greed. I believe in freedom of speech. Our "real news" must be protected. I believe some news shows should not be allowed to call themselves news stations, rather Opinion TV. What do you think? Would love a series on TV on this topic.
My mom worked for the classified section of a local Chicago paper. I know, double death. I don't think classified ads are necessary in a major city paper but the local news is. Lerner Newspapers helped to inform the locals about what the alderman was up to. About crime and local events. It was part of community organizing. If you look up the story about Warren Park in Rogers Park in the 70's, you will understand what it really means for a whole community to come together. I'm sure the local paper had something to say about it.
Chris. No one notices any diffence in sound quality but you:). Just keep speaking truth!
Great podcast! Thank you.
I keep hoping that QAon is just an elaborate joke created by the actor John DeLance who is best known for playing the character Q on Star Trek and he's just doing this to troll the right. I don't think it is.
