Every week two friends search for meaning in life and show off a bit. Sometimes we know a lot about our topic and sometimes we work out how little we know. We always try and have fun. You might laugh, get a bit angry, a bit sad sometimes, agree, disagree, nod, shout at us. That sort of thing. Michael made all our music. Have a listen. Tell your friends.

He’s the President, yet we’re still trying to answer basic questions about how his business works: What deals are happening, who they’re happening with, and if the President and his family are keeping their promise to separate the Trump Organization from the Trump White House. “Trump, Inc.” is a joint reporting project from WNYC Studios and ProPublica that digs deep into these questions. We’ll be layout out what we know, what we don’t and how you can help us fill in the gaps. WNYC Studios is ...

Is winning the lottery all it’s cracked up to be? Not necessarily, not that either of us has ever won it. But it’s nice to think about how life would be different if money was no object, so let’s give it a go.

Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are not the only Democrats opposed to filibuster reform—Dianne Feinstein says she won’t vote for it, either. And there are more Democrats in the Senate staying the same thing. But without filibuster reform, the rest of the Democrats’ agenda is dead—starting with protection of voting rights and elections. What’s wrong …
 
Kendi joins the show this week to explain critical race theory, and why it has become such a political lightning rod. He also talks about how the backlash against critical race theory is threatening academic freedom, and specifically how it kept Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones from tenure at the University of North Carolina. D…
 
Republicans are not just making it harder to vote—they’re making it easier for judges and state legislatures to reverse the results of elections they have lost. Congressional action could block these changes—but that requires filibuster reform, and Joe Manchin says he won’t vote for filibuster reform. What does Joe Manchin want? John Nichols commen…
 
Joe Biden went to Tulsa on Tuesday to commemorate the fact that, one hundred years ago this week, in 1921, a white mob attacked an all-Black neighborhood there. It was one of the worst episodes of racial violence in U.S. history. Historians think it left 300 dead and 10,000 homeless. David M. Perry comments on the political issues around the histor…
 
We’ve all found the need for a bit of emotional resilience as the pandemic has turned out lives upside down, not to mention polarisation on social media and whatever is going on in our personal lives. It’s important to maintain healthy boundaries between ourselves and others, and between our sense of self and our emotional reactions. Streamed Live …

While Joe Biden has pledged an “ironclad commitment to Israel's security," many Democrats in Congress, and outside of Congress, have been moving away from unquestioning support for Israel since the Israeli attacks on Gaza last week. John Nichols reports. Plus: It’s probably the most radical show that’s ever been on TV: Exterminate All the Brutes, t…
 
Our animal brains tend to be suspicious of anything that looks out of place or unusual. We have to train ourselves not to see people who are different as a threat. Most weirdos are behaving in the service of their own values so it’s not really our problem if you don’t immediately understand. We want to normalise new behaviours where think we can do…
 
We’ve taken you on a Dantean journey in this series, revisiting the damage done to the Republic by the presidency of Donald Trump. Other the last five episodes, we’ve chronicled how norms were shattered; loopholes exploited; and the constitution’s ambiguities laid bare.

When you can’t find the “cancel subscription” button or the button that doesn’t add an unwanted extra to your bill, or you’re confused by double-negatives and weird questions, you might be encountering a “Dark Pattern”. It’s probably by design. Dark Patterns make lots of money for some very big businesses, but they betray a pretty galling lack of r…
 
This week’s violence across Israel and the occupied territories points to a new era in Israeli-Palestinian relations. Palestinian observers find themselves wondering: Is it a changing diplomatic paradigm, thanks to a growing movement to acknowledge the human rights of Palestinians and find lasting peace? Or is it something more frightening, more de…
 
Conflict between Israel and Palestine has been escalating this week. For this podcast we have two segments about Palestinians; neither is about the current crisis, which changes daily. Rachel Kushner visited a Palestinian refugee camp in 2016 – Shuafat, the only one inside Jerusalem – alongside a community organizer as he tried to solve massive pro…
 
It’s a cliché now that the Justice Department should be independent of the president. Everyone says it—constantly. There’s just one problem. As a legal and constitutional matter, this “independent” Justice Department is a lot of nonsense. For more of this show, go to AfterTrumpPod.com. Learn more about your ad choices.

Jeff Bezos’ 2020 Letter to Shareholders is a slick piece of writing, espousing everything that is ostensibly brilliant about Amazon. But there’s some stuff in there that we wanted to pick apart and examine based on our own particular values.

In one sense maybe we should be thankful we’ve never had to grapple with these perplexing issues because a President has never run as wild as Trump did. But there’s a real precedent being set in the government’s approach to presidential criming. It’s not just about Mueller or Trump or Biden or Merrick Garland. It’s about renovating the whole system…
 
Blake Bailey’s new book about Philip Roth was taken out of print by the publisher after Bailey was accused of rape and attempted rape and “grooming” his teenage students for sex with him when they reached 18. Nation columnist Katha Pollitt argues that, while she believes the women—Bailey probably was a rapist, as well as a misogynist and a creep—re…
 
There was a whole thing this week about Basecamp’s “No politics talk at work” and we felt we had something to add to the conversation. Because if politics is just “stuff that makes you uncomfortable to talk about and means you might have to change something to feel better” then that’s not okay.

It’s a slimy-feeling way to think about things so we’re doing it so you don’t have to. We talked about how to recognise our different types of capital and then use this to be braver in the world.

The pardon power was designed to be a tool for correcting wrongs. Any system of justice applied to a whole nation is going to have failures. A pardon is there to correct miscarriages of justice—and injustice. It was always believed that if a president abused his pardon authority, it would be so appalling to so many, at such a gut level, that the ch…
 
Guilty, guilty, guilty! The verdicts in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis made history—and came only after millions of people took to the streets, for months, in hundreds of cities across America; and only after a decade of sustained organizing by Black Lives Matter. Jody Armour comments—he’s the Roy Crocker Professor of Law at the University …
 
Capital isn’t just money or property, it can come in other forms such as Human Capital, Social Capital or Reputational Capital.

Also, we spend a long time swearing about a pries…

The union organizing campaign at the Amazon fulfillment center in Bessemer, Alabama, was defeated by a vote of 1798 against and 738 in favor. Jane McAlevey argues that the biggest factor in the vote was the laws that give tremendous advantages to the corporate side—but the union itself made a series of tactical and strategic errors. Jane is The Nat…

There’s one political prediction that always comes true: record turnout in one election will be followed by a tidal wave of voter suppression efforts before the next one. So it’s not surprising that, after 2020 had record turnout, 2021 is seeing voting rights under attack nationwide by Republican-controlled state legislatures. Georgia has taken the…

The arrival of multiple vaccines against Covid-19 in less than a year after the virus’s emergence is sort of a miracle—but there’s nothing miraculous about the failure of donor nations, along with pharmaceutical and biotech companies, to prepare for, and mount, a global vaccination campaign. Gregg Gonsalves comments. Also: now that Trump is gone, W…

One of the senate seats being abandoned by a Republican incumbent is in Ohio. Can Democrats win that seat? It’s going to be hard. Unlike North Carolina, which will also have an open Republican seat, Ohio has not been divided 50-50 recently. For the last decade it has elected only one Democrat to statewide office--one of our heroes, Senator Sherrod …
