Joan Walsh: Dems Are Finally Fighting for State Houses; Affirmative Action for Reactionaries; Antifa Has Nazis on the Run

March 28, 2018 @ 11:10 am

We kick off this week's show with Joan Walsh, national correspondent for The Nation and contributor to CNN, to talk about how, after years of neglect, progressive groups and the Democratic Party are finally contesting state legislative races across the country.

 

Then we'll be joined by David Klion, a Brooklyn-based writer, to discuss The Atlantic's decision to hire Kevin Williamson -- a right-wing provocateur of questionable talent --in order to bring "ideological diversity" to the prominent magazine's lineup of opinion writers. Williamson is the latest anti-Trump conservative to get a prominent platform in the supposedly liberal media despite a history of some highly offensive rhetoric. 

 

Finally, we'll speak with Dartmouth historian Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, about what the media miss in their coverage of the movement.

 

Playlist:
Smashmouth: "Road Man"
Jonathon Adams and the cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show: "Eddie"
Son Little: "O Me O My"
Jesse Belvin: "Guess Who"

New Philly DA’s ‘Radical’ Justice Reforms | Why Are White Guys Stockpiling Guns? | Katha Pollitt: Left Needs to Take #Russiagate Seriously

March 18, 2018 @ 1:59 pm

Elections have consequences. This week, we kick off with Maura Ewing, a writer-in-residence at the Fair Punishment Project, talking about her piece for Slate on Philadelphia's newly elected District Attorney Larry Krasner and the "wild" and "unprecedented" criminal justice reforms he's been rolling out in his first few months in office. 

 

Then we're joined by Greater Good editor Jeremy Adam Smith, who wrote a piece for Scientific American this week about why white men are stockpiling guns. 

 

Finally, Katha Pollitt returns to the show to talk about what #Russiagate skeptics get wrong and why the left needs to take the issue seriously.

War on Unions May Have Unintended Consequences; Rightwing Violence Against Cops; Anti-Choicers’ New Strategy

March 4, 2018 @ 4:14 pm

This week, we're joined by union organizer Shaun Richman, who explains why Janus v. AFSCME, corporate America's latest assault on organized workers, may come back to bite them in the form of more labor unrest. 

 

Then we welcome Luke Barnes from Think Progress to discuss his piece on fringe right-wing violence against law enforcement, and how it often goes under-reported by the national press. 

 

Last but not least, Rewire News investigative reporter Sofia Resnick tells us about the Red Rose Rescues -- and anti-abortion activists' latest strategy to deny women the right to choose.
