The Majority Report with Sam Seder

It's a special All Calls Casual Friday! Call into the show at 646-257-3920! Sam and Emma also talk to Astra Taylor, co-founder of the Debt Collective, about what's next in the fight to maintain student debt forgiveness as the Supreme Court gears up to rule on President's Biden's plan. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on the Supreme Court’s recent decision impacting native sovereignty, peace in Ukraine, Iowa’s abortion ban, labor action, and climate change, also diving into Boris Johnson’s exit from Parliament and the MASSIVE updates on the Biden crime family (turns out there’s still not much). Nathan from Kansas City dives into the bigger picture of pistol brace legislation, Kaley from Boston discusses the relationship between queer acceptance and legislation, and Mike from Troy takes on the absurd lack of comprehension Matt Walsh and Jordan Peterson have on the topic of trans medical issues. Sam and Emma also listen to JP’s Antifanalysis, Eric from Pittsburgh brings up criterion censorship, and Dave from Charlottesville explores the dem-ification of NC and the impact it has on local corruption. Astra Taylor then walks through the state of Biden’s student debt relief, why his admin insisted on using the HEROES Act, and why other avenues remain open to him. They also assess the impending Supreme Court cases on the issue, and explore what Biden actually would be open to.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma talk with Anonymous about the world of political consulting, Jake from Rhode Island discusses the impact of a local school board takeover, and Steven from Mississippi explores the relationship between fundamentalist religion and the rejection of non-religiously-affiliated welfare. DJ Cold Case clears up some of yesterday’s Discord drama, Michael Knowles is offended by a flag, and Billy from Sacramento dives into her experiences transitioning, and the lack of understanding around hormone therapy, plus, your calls and IMs!
