    Ep. 98: "Ladies and Gentlemen, This Is The Plague" (feat. Laurie Garrett)

    Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Laurie Garrett has been the most blunt and forthright analyst warning the public about how destructive the virus will be. She has been sounding the alarm on our lack of preparedness for a pandemic since her 1994 book, "The Coming Plague." Her warnings were not heeded. The United States has now bungled it's response and we are hitting record-high numbers of new cases. She joins Michael for a discussion about all aspects of the pandemic, including the disastrous decisions by President Trump and President Xi, what myths have persisted about the virus, whether schools might open in the fall, why the economic impact has not yet reached bottom, and the social and psychological effects we will be dealing with for many years. We need to hear the unvarnished truth if we are going to find our way out of this. Garrett says we should call this what it is, a plague, and she offers a way out should anyone want to listen.

    Ep. 95: Are We Ready For The Big Trump Surprise?

    Ep. 95: Are We Ready For The Big Trump Surprise?

    We are in the middle of a perfect storm of white supremacy, fascism, a police killing spree, an uprising against it, the Coronavirus pandemic, and a mad genius who will be willing to fake his own vaccine shot just to get re-elected in an election he has no intention of holding. If Tulsa taught him anything it was that he cannot trust the poor redneck racists to come out for him. So he’s already on to Plan Z while we’re wondering what B is. Michael weaves together all of these elements and raises the question about what a desperate Trump is plotting between now and November 3rd — and invites his listeners to help him come up with a series of strategies to guarantee Trump’s unconditional surrender.

    Ep. 93: Juneteenth (feat. Congresswoman Barbara Lee, D-CA, The granddaughter of a slave)

    Ep. 93: Juneteenth (feat. Congresswoman Barbara Lee, D-CA, The granddaughter of a slave)

    Two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation was supposed to have freed the slaves, news of the war ending — and that Lincoln had freed the slaves back in 1863 — finally made it to Galveston, Texas, on June 19th, 1965. So Texas, against its will, finally re-joined the rest of the Union, all slaves were freed and Juneteenth is now the holiday truly commemorating the freeing of all the slaves in America. Congresswoman Barbara Lee's grandfather was born a slave in Galveston post-Emancipation Proclamation, but weeks before Juneteenth, making this commemoration especially meaningful to Rep. Lee and her family.

    On this 155th commemoration of Juneteenth, Rep. Lee joins Michael to discuss the never-ending struggle for freedom for Black Americans and her courageous, lone vote against a never-ending war, 3 days after 9/11.

    **********************



    Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.  Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. The Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 had had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance of the white racist slave owners and the poor white population willing to die for those rich racist bastards. Crazy!

    Texas today is no longer a “white state.” 58% of its population is now made up of Black, Hispanic, Asian and other people of color.
