Sam and Emma host Columbia Law professor Jamal Greene to discuss his new book “How Rights Went Wrong: Why Our Obsession with Rights Is Tearing America Apart.” They delve into the absolutist, legalized view of rights that frames discourse in the US, how it diverges from the Framers original community-shaped vision of rights, and how exploring the rights on all sides of disputes might lead to more productive political conversation both in and out of the courts. Next, Sam and Emma continue their discussion around vaccine IP law, the crisis in India, and Bill Gates’ role in all of it, and brainstorm Larry Kudrow’s favorite meat-based beers.

And in the Fun Half: Tim Heidecker’s Oscar Special displays a beautifully unique red, white, and blue stained glass set, Emma works her word magic to trap the Biden administration into committing to student debt and international COVID relief, and Sandy and Hussain from Ontario explore the Canadian vein of the prison industrial complex and its effects on Indigenous communities. Then, Chuck Schumer sets his timeline for Democrat unity on an array of policies and Rick Scott assures us that Republicans are united, no matter what Trump says or does, plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam and Emma host Osita Nwanevu, staff writer at the New Republic, and Andy Kindler. With the former, they talk Democrats’ favoring of out-of-touch symbolism over substantive change, Biden’s preemptive deference to the right, and how these elements have come to light through the filibuster and PRO Act charades and were reinforced by responses to the Chauvin trial. Then, a newly confident Andy Kindler shows off his theme song and petite wardrobe, and talks Gutfeld!’s revelatory spin on “comedy.” Sam and Emma discuss Kavanaugh’s 180º on second chances for kids and explore a year of the right severely misunderstanding COVID.

And in the Fun Half: Republicans’ herd mentality overcomes their supposed desire for herd immunity, wokeness overtakes the Disney world experience, Sam reminisces on his trip to Epcot, and Emma and Sam discuss the tragedy of Dave Rubin. Glenn Greenwald sticks up for the little man (Matt Gaetz) and takes on the cultural imprisonment that is canceling, plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam and Emma host journalist and author Ann Neumann to discuss her new piece in the Baffler – “Who Owns Vaccines?" – on the barriers of IP patents and how US vaccine hoarding risks needless COVID deaths abroad. They touch on Bill Gates and the exploitative nature of capitalist philanthropy, how the West has socialized the costs while privatizing the profits of vaccines, and what the Biden Administration would need to do to help. Next, Sam and Emma cover the raging COVID situation in India, the republicans rediscovery of the debt ceiling, and Chuck Schumer wheeling away from his senatorial responsibilities.

And in the Fun Half: Matt explores Schumer’s intimate policymaking relationship with the Baileys from Massapequa, Ben Shapiro shows off his small wood, and the group talks about the political obfuscation of Pat Tillman’s story. Then, Sinema shows her true colors in a call with the AZ Chamber of Commerce, and Bro Flamingo and Brandon explore how domestic police and the US military are part of the same imperialist project that maintains forever wars at home, and abroad.

Sam and Emma host Gabe Winant, professor of history at the University of Chicago, to discuss his new book, The Next Shift: The Fall of Industry and the Rise of Health Care in Rust Belt America. They explore how a healthcare complex was built up around the failing industrial sector, the destabilizing switch from retroactive to prospective billing, and the “trilemma” facing the U.S. government’s handling of a privatized healthcare industry. Next, Sam and Emma cover Rep. Pelosi’s Fear-of-Single-Payer, the Bessemer Union vote, and the republicans’ nitpicking at what an “Infrastructure” bill definitionally means.

And in the Fun Half: Sam takes on taxonomies, we debate whether angry folks on Twitter are more powerful than Senator McCarthy’s legacy, and Lavinia from Brooklyn explores Big Tech’s algorithmic relationship with cancel culture. Sam and Emma talk death (of the monarchy) and vaxxes, Fauci’s mask shortage cover-up, and Tucker Carlson and Jimmy Dore’s clinic on self-victimization, plus, your calls and IMs!

Emma begins by discussing the relevant developments in the Derek Chauvin trail and the disintegration of the defenses’ case. Then, Manny Fidel, opinion writer for Business Insider, joins the podcast to talk about the biggest news stories of the week. Manny, Emma, and Matt begin by discussing the breaking news pertaining to the sex trafficing investigation of Matt Gaetz, which now involves him and Joel Greenberg breaking into a license facility to make fake IDs. Manny, then, discusses Biden’s announcement of his $2.25 trillion infrastructure bill which has shattered any hopes that Biden would continue to be a more progressive president than we expected. Finally, Emma asks Manny how effective he believes the right’s rhetoric about canel culture will be in rallying the base under the Biden administration.

Emma hosts Ken Klippenstein, reporter for The Intercept, to discuss his three recent articles on the horrible experiences of Amazon employees and their unionization efforts. First, Ken talks about his reporting on delivery associates who routinely have to urinate in bottles in order to meet daily quotas. Despite Amazon’s claims, Ken uncovered documents that show that management has not only been aware of this issue, but that they actively tell their employees to keep this practice a secret. Then, Ken discusses the recent tweets coming from Amazon’s PR account which have gone after people making these accusations. Ken believes that whoever has been tweeting is someone from senior leadership, possibly even Jeff Bezos himself. Finally, Ken discusses his investigation into Amazon’s paid twitter army who are trained to go after any criticism and aggressively defend the company on social media. Ken’s reporting has brought to light what a lot of us have suspected all along: Amazon employees work under horrible conditions and any unionization efforts have been actively shut down by management.

Andreas Malm joins Sam to discuss his new book, “How to Blow Up a Pipeline: Leaning to Fight in a World on Fire.” Andreas begins by explaining that while the pandemic has temporarily tamped down the climate movement, it has simultaneously led to a 7% drop in world-wide emissions and demonstrated how government can effectively intervene in the private sector during a crisis. Then, Sam asks Andreas to explain the two strategies of the climate movement, one being putting pressure on the government to pass policy and the other being reducing profits of fossil fuel companies through physically shutting down their operations. Andreas discusses the limitations of peaceful climate activism and argues for the need for a more radical flank in the movement. And finally, as it turns out, renewable energy is actually much cheaper to produce, but companies refuse to switch over because they can get away with a much higher markup on fossil fuels than they would be able to on renewables.

Emma hosts Edo Konrad, Editor-in-Chief of +972 Magazine, to discuss the rise and success of the Irsraeli right and last week’s election results. Edo begins by explaining the political failure of centrist left candidate Benny Gantz and his decision to join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right wing coalition in last year's election. Then, Edo dives into Palestinian politics in Israel, explaining the consolidation of the four Palestinian political parties, the disintegration of the Joint List, and Mansour Abbas decision to join Netanyahu’s coalition. Finally, in order to ensure his own political survival, Edo talks about Netanyahu’s dangerous decision to bring Jewish extremism into the fold of his party and the potential long term implications of that political move.

Sam interviews Jennifer Berkshire & Jack Schneider of the Have You Heard podcast about their book,  A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door: The Dismantling of Public Education and the Future of School.” Jack begins by giving a brief history on the origins of the anti-public education movement in Bary Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign, as a response, in part, to the civil rights movement. Jennifer explains how the right has already begun laying the groundwork for the total privatization of education through advocating for “funding students, not systems,” in which parents are given vouchers to decide how they want to educate their children. Then, they discuss how the Democratic Party has also contributed to the disintegration of public schools through commodifying education by placing more importance on standardized testing and introducing charter schools. Jennifer and Jack make the point that as important as the public education system is, it is not the solution to poverty that billionaires such as Bill Gates claim it is.

Sam and Emma host ProPublica journalist Alec MacGillis and author of “Fulfillment:Winning and Losing in One-Click America” to discuss how Jeff Bezos has used America’s infrastructure to make Amazon the most dominant monopoly in the US. Alec explains how Amazon has been a driving force of regional inequality and has stunted prosperity and business activity around the country, including in the cities where it resides. Starting with Amazon’s founding in Seattle, Alec talks about the conglomerating effect of tech companies and Amazon’s ability to strategically avoid paying taxes through setting up warehouses in states with a smaller sales tax and moving profits offshore. Through the interview, Alec explores the question as to whether this is an issue specifically with Amazon’s unethical company practices or if this is indicative of a fundamental flaw in our capital structure that awards massive trusts. With the majority of Democrats believing that Amazon is the most trustworthy institution in America, what can be done to reverse the domination of these tech monopolies?

Sam and Emma host Jemima Pierre, professor of African American Studies at UCLA, to unpack the long history of Haiti, the first free black republic established in 1804, and successive years of occupation and exploitation by France and the US. Then, Jemima discusses how this history has led to the current political situation in Haiti where the Organization of American States (OAS) and the UN have essentially propped up dictators, such as current leader Jovenel Moïse, against the will of the Hatain people. After, Brian Concannon, director of Project Blueprint and advisor at IJDH, joins to further explain the U.S.’, along with France and Canada’s, economic and geopolitical interest in thwarting Haitian democracy. Brain describes steps that the Biden administration and the House of Foreign Affairs Committee should take to end their support of Jovenel Moïse’s government and restore Haitain sovereignty.

Sam and Emma host ACLU Deputy Director for Transgender Justice Chase Strangio to discuss the anti-trans legislation make its way across GOP-controlled statehouses across America. We're live at noon ET.

Sam and Emma begin with discussing the Biden administration's immigration policy at the border and react to Dan Crenshaw’s interview with Mehdi Hassan. Then, Sam and Emma host ACLU Deputy Director for Transgender Justice Chase Strangio to discuss the increase in anti-trans legislation that has made its way across GOP-controlled statehouses. Chase explains how the current wave of anti-trans legislation in girls sports is the new manifestation of the same kind of GOP generated transphobic panic that informed the restroom bills in 2016-17 and is used to drive up Republican voter turnout. And further, Chase discusses the current legal precedent set by Bostock v Clayton County that protects trans rights, which GOP state legislatures actively disregard. Finally, Sam and Emma discuss Glenn Greenwald’s “oppression ladder” in the LBGTQ community.
 
And in the Fun Half: Sam on the Conan O’Brien show (as an angel), Biden waiting to call the Atlanta shooting a hate crime, the weaponization of identity politics against the left, Arkansas legislature bans abortion in an attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade, Donald Trump returning to social media on his own platform, Emma on Libertarianism, the YouTube 1 million subscriber award, filibuster against HR1, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam and Emma host MIT professor Justin Reich (@bjfr) on his latest book Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education on remote learning's failures during the Covid crisis and how we can improve schooling in the event of future pandemics.

On today's show: Biden gives bid of support to Alabama workers and their right to unionize.

Sam and Emma host MIT professor Justin Reich (@bjfr) on his latest book Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education on remote learning's failures during the Covid crisis and how we can improve schooling in the event of future pandemics. While Silicon Valley has promised great advancements in education through trendy new technology, it hasn't exactly panned out that way. Examining things like proctoring software (which functions like spyware), auto-grading, and MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses), Reich shows how tech alone cannot mitigate inequality or revolutionize education.

On the fun half: Jen Psaki says Cuomo accusers deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, supports independent investigation. Asked about Biden administration decision to not sanction MBS personally and general accountability, Jen Psaki says US will hold Saudi Arabia accountable, suggests US doesn't sanction heads of state personally. Trump hints that he might run again, beating Democrats a "third time" (crowd goes wild). Fox and Friends pumped that Trump is back, Kilmeade says Trump looks thinner, he wants to unite the GOP. Right wing figure espouses Qanon beliefs during CPAC panel, talks about being canceled for addressing Q, child trafficking and finding out what's really going on. Reporter asks if WH is pushing harder for Neera Tanden than $15 minimum wage. Asked about horrible death rates in South Dakota, Kristi Noem says press should ask same question to other governors. Singer botches National Anthem at CPAC. Young girl sells lemonade to pay for her brain surgery in "heartwarming" local news story. Plus, your IMs.

Sam and Emma take a look at some of the most important stories of the week including the parliamentarian's ruling on a $15 minimum wage, fixing the USPS, and more.

On today's show: Chris Hayes asks Bernie Sanders if Senate has votes for $15 minimum wage on up/down vote, Bernie laughs "no." John Thune recounts making a wage in the '70s, says it's too much to raise wages to $15/hr, even though his wages in '70s (adjusted for inflation) were higher than $15/hr. Ro Khanna explains why passing $15 minimum wage is not conditioned on parliamentarian ruling, "Be honest with folks." Roger Marshall (R-KS) says he had a low wage job in HS and college and it helped him graduate debt free. DeJoy says he’s sticking around at post office til his work is done. After Jim Jordan says Democrats are hypocrites and Post Office is besieged by partisanship, Gerry Connolly explains how USPS was hamstrung by GOP appointments and political efforts. Former aide speaks out about how Cuomo sexually harassed her.

On the fun half: Asked if Trump should speak at CPAC, the GOP leadership is divided. Reopened Miami detention center for children is the same one where Kamala had her manufactured meme moment. One year ago today: Larry Kudlow claims "we have contained" the corona virus. Rep. Marie Newman (IL-03) gives floor speech on importance of passing the Equality Act. Marjorie Taylor Greene posts sign outside door saying there's only two genders. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of the Benjamin Dixon Show and David Roth (@david_j_roth), editor at Defector and host of The Distraction Podcast, to discuss the week's top stories including the second senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump and the Biden administration's Covid relief plans.

On today's show: Rep. Raskin argues that if Trump returned to office he would not bother to reign in his supporters' violent attacks on political opponents. Lindsay Graham says he wants an investigation into what Nancy Pelosi knew before January 6.

Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of the Benjamin Dixon Show joins Sam to discuss stories including: Trump's second impeachment trial and the Biden admin's shrinking Covid relief checks. Trump's lawyer argues that his impeachment is "constitutional cancel culture." Sen. Whitehouse says Senate ethics committee should look at GOP senators' role in Jan 6 riots. Dave Ramsey says if you're concerned about difference of $600 or $1400 relief then you have bigger problems in your life.

David Roth (@david_j_roth), editor at Defector and host of The Distraction Podcast, joins Sam to discuss where the Trumpist wing of the GOP goes from here. Will Marjorie Taylor Greene actually write laws, or just become a touring aggrievement show? OAN's sentimental tribute to Trump Presidency includes sad piano music, poem by Rudyard Kipling. Speaking about Dallas Mavericks' decision to not play national anthem before games, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick says it's like the Jan 6 riots. Mike Huckabee running ads on Newsmax, targeting grandparents to buy their grandkids books on Trump's accomplishments. Brian Kilmeade says media isn't talking about falling Covid cases because Dems can't pass their wasteful stimulus if the numbers are going down. OCTOBER 2020: Seema Verma at Aspen Ideas Festival says governors are on board with Medicaid work requirements, people don't want to be on Medicaid. CNN interviews children of parents who fell deep into Qanon conspiracy.

Sam hosts Ari Berman, senior reporter at Mother Jones, to discuss the deluge of statehouse legislation aiming to curb voting rights for the next election cycle. Sam and Ari examine how states have tried to restrict voting rights after the 2013 Supreme Court decision which no longer required southern states to receive federal approval before changing their voting laws. Sam and Ari then explore how voting laws may change in the midterm cycle and the next presidential election. Ari warns against the restrictive voting rights and how it could very well come back to hurt the GOP turnout, not just the Democrats. Sam and Ari go state-by-state on how battleground state legislatures are trying to restrict voting rights from gerrymandering to court elections.

And in the Fun Half: Tucker Carlson goes full InfoWars, the union drive at the Alabama Amazon fulfillment center, water rights in Florida, student loan forgiveness on Fox and Friends doesn't go exactly according to plan, plus your calls and IMs.

Sam and Emma host Maurice Chammah, staff writer at The Marshall Project, and author of Let the Lord Sort Them: The Rise and Fall of the Death Penalty joins the show to discuss his new book and how America might move beyond its shameful history of capital punishment. Sam and Chammah explore how the death penalty took hold through American culture, particularly Texas, and its relationship to reconstruction and lynchings in the south. Chammah continues to describe the mythology of Texas, frontier justice, and how it impacted the continuation of the death penalty. The two continue their conversation considering how state governments made capital punishment operational from the 1970s onward, and how Bill Clinton used it to secure his political future. Sam, Emma, and Chammah conclude their conversation by examining the future of the death penalty and how a Democratic administration could work around states' efforts to uphold their capital punishment. Chammah closes the discussion by talking about changing punitive carceral reform and the incremental changes needed to provide a more humane society.

And in the Fun Half: Reaching out to Christians with left talking points, will Dems repeal GOP tax cuts, why the fever will not break for the GOP, dispatches from George Floyd Park in Minneapolis, the disturbing footage of Rochester NY cops pepper-spraying a black child in the back of their squad car, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Vanessa Williamson (@V_Williamson), a Brookings Institute fellow, to discuss her recent piece in Dissent Magazine, "The Austerity Politics of White Supremacy," on how the cult of the "taxpayer" functions as an effective veneer to push through racist attacks on democracy.

On today's show: Cori Bush says House should impeach Trump, a white supremacist president, GOP boos her. House GOP member says Trump and his supporters aren't racist.... they're just afraid of immigrants crossing the border and not being able to say offensive things!

Sam hosts Vanessa Williamson (@V_Williamson), a Brookings Institute fellow, to discuss her recent piece in Dissent Magazine, "The Austerity Politics of White Supremacy," on how the cult of the "taxpayer" functions as an effective veneer to push through racist attacks on democracy. In the days of Reconstruction, the Southern planter class found it difficult to get poor whites on their side without appealing to their material interests. By re-framing policy in terms of taxes, they got tax-burdened whites on board with a project of austerity which continues to this day.

On the fun half: Poll: QAnon favorability is highest among young people. Marjorie Taylor Greene unveils plan to impeach Joe Biden. QAnon Shaman describes how the cops let him leave the capitol. Trumpers yell at Rep Correa in airport. A plug for National Educators United (nationaleducatorsunited.org). Protestor before capitol building yelling "we were invited!" After Trump is impeached in the House, Mike Huckabee describes it as a lynching. NY AG Tish James talks about lawsuit against NYPD. Tucker says Democrats are a solitary group with "shared genetics" founded in the exclusion of straight white men. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Adam Jentleson (@AJentleson), former advisor to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, to discuss his new book Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy on how the filibuster negatively impacts American democracy.

On today's show: Democratic House member says GOP reps are telling him they fear for their lives if they vote to impeach Trump.

Sam hosts Adam Jentleson (@AJentleson), former advisor to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, to discuss his new book Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy on how the filibuster negatively impacts American democracy. How John C. Calhoun and other Southern Senators pioneered the filibuster to block civil rights legislation during Reconstruction. How it persisted through the Jim Crow era and became normalized. Reforms that could change the majority required to pass legislation in the Senate back to 50%.

Asked if he feels responsible for recent events, Home Depot CEO Ken Langone feels betrayed by last week's riots: "I didn't sign up for that!"

On the fun half: GOP House member says there's violence on both sides of the aisle. Asked about companies opposing Trump, Lauren Boebert says Democrats were the ones who normalized violence. NJ Congresswoman asserts that GOP Reps were taking civilians on recon tours through the House the day before riots took place. Doocy asks hypothetical: If it was a GOP House would they impeach a Democratic president for what Trump did, Kilmeade admits yes, but Democrats always impeach, Kilmeade then asks pro-impeachment GOP why they're against Trump now. Pompeo ignores questions from VOA reporter who was reassigned after challenging Pompeo w/ hard questions about his role in delegimitizing election results. Mike Pompeo says Al Qaeda's Abu Mohammed al-Masri was assassinated in Tehran in August and that shows Al Qaida "home base" is in Iran. Plus, your calls and IMs!

On today's best of: Sam hosts former Republican strategist and consultant Stuart Stevens (@stuartpstevens) to discuss his new book It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump on how the GOP was always destined to become the party of Trump. While the Republican Party once stood for principles like “limited government” and “personal responsibility,” Stevens believes its worst tendencies have long since taken over and enabled the rise of Trump. Sam takes Stevens to task for some of these assumptions, prompting a lively exchange of ideas.

The two continue their conversation discussing the Lewis Powell memo and how corporate leaders wanted to change public sentiment towards corporate capitalism. Sam also explains his appreciation of Andersen’s novel Turn of the Century and Andersen shares how his political attitudes changed during that period at the beginning of the 21st century. Andersen and Sam conclude the conversation as to what lies ahead for younger generations of Americans and how does Joe Biden help usher in change, maybe.

On today’s show: AOC’s closing campaign ad pitch for reelection: “A better world is possible.”

NY-14 congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) joins Sam to discuss her June 23rd primary and what to expect from the progressive caucus before the next round of Covid-19 relief. Why the finance industry is donating to AOC’s opponent, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, the former CNBC anchor who lived in Trump tower before she carpet-bagged her way to Queens. The balance between local and national politics and the importance of mutual aid. The reasoning behind AOC’s votes on the CARES and HEROES acts. Why the progressive caucus isn’t always so progressive.

Historian Gerald Horne joins Sam to discuss the history of Juneteenth in the age of Trump. The various steps that led to Texas finally abolishing slavery on June 19, 1865. The messy process of actually getting rid of unpaid labor. How revisionists have changed this history to fit a liberal narrative.

On today's Best of: Sam hosts Stephen Wertheim, the Deputy Director of Research at the Quincy Institute, to discuss his new book, Tomorrow the World: The Birth of U.S. Global Supremacy and the political and intellectual history behind U.S. global hegemony post-WWII. Wertheim and Sam begin their interview by discussing the Monroe Doctrine’s implications and its role in defining the role of America’s assumption of global hegemony. Wertheim explains how the Council of Foreign Relations forecasted how to best distribute world power after WWII and how the American people would prosper under a “quartered” world. However, the CFR determined a quartered-ruled world was not a politically viable option. Wertheim teases out his thesis that interventionists and internationalists together realized that global dominion and a U.S. “world order” were essential to American exceptionalism and maintaining modern humanity. Sam and Wertheim also discuss post-War State Department planners arrived at founding the United Nations. Sam and Wertheim conclude their conversation with an assessment of what’s to come as American hegemony sundowns.

On today's show: Sam hosts Michael Sandel (@JusticeHarvard), Professor of Political Philosophy at Harvard University, to discuss his new book The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good?on the shortcomings of the "meritocratic" system and what we can do to fix it. The myth of the American meritocracy has long been used to justify a set of policies that are antithetical to social mobility.

Erika Andiola (@erikaandiola), Chief Advocacy Officer at RAICES, joins the program to discuss potential Biden immigration policy items.
