This track serves as the third and, for now, final installment of a multi-part look at some vulnerabilities in American democracy, and what could be done about them. In this episode, I review the importance of addressing these threats to American democracy, and discuss what is probably the biggest impediment to some of these solutions going into ef…
 
This track serves as the second installment of a multi-part look at some vulnerabilities in American democracy, and what could be done about them. In this episode, I have a conversation with Democrats Abroad Global Chair Julia Bryan, focusing on those threats to democracy, and the steps being considered by Democrats in the House and Senate (HR1/S1/…
 
This episode will serve as the first installment in a multi-part look at some flaws in American democracy, and what could be done about them. In this episode, I go back in time to imagine what might have been prevented had the Democratic Party taken advantage of their huge majorities in 2009 to fix some of the vulnerabilities in America's democrati…
 
In this episode, we look at the January 6th attack by Trump supporters, incited by the President, on the Capitol. I discuss the recent history leading up to the attempted insurrection, and how the actions of not just Trump but a number of other figures in the Republican Party paved the way to the extreme-right violence we saw directed at our democr…
 
After the 2010 U.S. Census, aided by massive midterm wins, the Republicans gerrymandered themselves into unbreakable control of the House for almost a decade. With Democrats in 2020 on the cusp of an election that might look a lot like the Republican landslide in 2010, Republicans have sabotaged the census. This represents yet another attack on a f…
 
Several months ago, I put out an pod about the ways in which the Republicans have been actively working to undermine democracy in America. Unfortunately "The Democrats vs. The Anti-Democrats" has aged fairly well - new reporting has detailed a plan by some in the Republican Party to create chaos in the election which will allow them to reinstall Tr…
 
Ruth Bader Ginsberg's passing represents a devastating blow to her millions of fans, to American jurisprudence, and to the causes she fought for during her entire adult life - causes threatened by the Trump administration and the increasingly right-wing Supreme Court which will now lurch dramatically further in that direction with her passing. It a…
 
In this episode, I'm joined by Professor Andrew Latham for a fairly open and broad conversation touching on Russia’s recent history, strategic culture and self-image, how those things bring it into conflict with the west, where that might lead, and what the west can do about it.By Oliver Kendall
 
In this episode, I describe dual threats posed to small-d democracy by the American Republican Party: their efforts to interfere with democracy by suppressing the vote (through voter ID laws and opposing measures to make voting safe in the context of COVID-19), and the potential that they'll ignore democracy altogether by rejecting the results of t…
 
In this episode, I discuss differences in how conservatives and liberals protest in America, and the disparity between how conservative and liberal protests are responded to. This is highlighted and made especially relevant by the apparent toleration of armed anti-lockdown protests violating social distancing guidelines in the context of COVID-19.…
 
In this episode, I give listeners an overview of Filipino politics under the rule of its colorful, extremely Trump-like President, Rodrigo Duterte. I'm also joined by Dr. Jerry Diaz, a physician in Manila, with whom I discuss the response to COVID-19, and the likely impact to Filipino politics and relations between the Philippines and China.…
