Portland-based anti-fascist Sean Kealiher was killed in 2019, months before the uprising that would bring Portland international attention. Nearly two years later, his homicide remains unsolved. His mother, Laura, believes she hasn't received justice because of police hatred for her son and his politics. Dying For A Fight, the second installment in Somethin’ Else’s Fault Line series, goes in search of answers: What happened the night Sean was killed? Why have no arrests been made? Who are the Americans living at the political extremes? And how did things escalate from Portland to the Capitol? This show is a co-production with Oregon Public Broadcasting.

David Dimbleby, one of the BBC’s best known news hosts and reporters, takes us back to those crucial 18 months. Talking to prime ministers, politicians, spies and weapons inspectors he asks how and why we came to invade Iraq. And as we experience an era of lies and mistrust - did the events of 17 years ago set the stage for the world we live in now?

    Introducing Power: Hugh Hefner

    Who was Hugh Hefner? Centerfold models, Playboy Bunnies, and other women from the Playboy founder’s inner circle, like TV personality and author Holly Madison, tell journalist Amy Rose Spiegel their side of his story. We hear how Playboy changed their lives, for better and for worse. Beyond the bunny tails are darker questions: What actually went on at the notorious Playboy Mansion? How can we square Hefner's progressive legacy with his abuse of vulnerable people? What can the Playboy saga tell us about sex and power—then and now?

Depressingly good

Lays the sociopathy of the US neocons and the hubris of Tony Blair bare for all to see. A major contributor to the decline in trust for politicians and the media in the West over the last twenty years, and of course the chaos and death that rippled out across the middle east and the world.

Two extremes

Series one was excellent! Serious two was not a good listen, utter drivel at times. People who were very principled at others expense. Mind that seems to be the only link between the series.!

Dubious

The episodes about Portland give a point of view but has little objectivity. If the presenter is some kind of journalist he lacks depth and critical thinking and not sure I’m hearing anything that useful.
