    Prosecuting the Capitol Rioters

    In the months since a pro-Trump mob breached the walls of the Capitol building, some 420 people have been arrested and charged in connection with the attack. And that number is expected to rise.

    From The Sunday Read Archive: ‘Weird Al Yankovic’s Weirdly Enduring Appeal’

    In this episode of The Sunday Read, we revisit a story from our archives.

    Sam Anderson claims Weird Al Yankovic is not just a parody singer — he’s “a full-on rock star, a legitimate performance monster and a spiritual technician doing important work down in the engine room of the American soul.” In these absurd times, Sam reaches into his childhood to explain the enduring appeal of an absurd artist.

    We look at the factors behind her ouster and the new requirements for Republican leadership.

    Apple vs. Facebook

    Apple vs. Facebook

    Recently, Apple released a seemingly innocuous software update: a new privacy feature that would explicitly ask iPhone users whether an app should be allowed to track them across other apps and sites.

    For Facebook, however, this feature is anything but innocuous — it strikes at the heart of the company’s business model.

    The dispute represents a further deterioration in the frosty relations between the two companies. What’s at the heart of this conflict, and why have the stakes become so high for both sides?

    Guest: Mike Isaac, a technology correspondent for The New York Times.

A good way to get bad news.

The soothing, dulcet tones of Michael barbaro lulls me into a false sense of security before being hit with the impending doom that is the news cycle.

But this is my favourite way to get the news!
