He is the co-founder of Spirit …

The death of the great RBG is absolutely devastating, and has made the stakes so much higher. In this episode, I talk about what we HAVE to do to keep our democracy. Things aren't good.

The annual United Nations General Assembly is a chance for world leaders to use a global platform to speak their minds — and perform a bit of theater.

Muhammad Sahimi discusses Mike Pompeo's continual efforts to provoke a war between the U.S. and Iran, or to incite regime change from within. His "maximum pressure" sanctions campaign is part of the quest to attain one of these outcomes, a policy that Sahimi thinks is both doomed to fail and incredibly dangerous for America.
