    This CEO Wants a Fountain of Youth for Dogs. Can We Be Next? Please?

    This CEO Wants a Fountain of Youth for Dogs. Can We Be Next? Please?

    Jon turned 60 this week, which had him asking: “Can I live longer?” So we’re talking with Celine Halioua, the founder and CEO of Loyal, a biotech start-up with a mission to extend a dog’s lifespan. She believes that if they’re successful, it could work on humans too. Jon and Celine talk about Silicon Valley culture and ask the big tech question: Just because we can do something, should we? Plus, writers Kasaun Wilson and Alexa Loftus discuss the latest Twitter happenings, and Jon gives them a fashion show—which is great content for a non-visual medium like a podcast. 




    The first half of Season 2 is streaming now on Apple TV+.

Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice are here for a fascinating discussion about American power, whether spreading democracy has actually made us safer, and how our role on the world stage should look going forward.

    I Was Kidnapped by the Taliban: Safi Rauf on Rescuing Afghan Allies

    I Was Kidnapped by the Taliban: Safi Rauf on Rescuing Afghan Allies

    This week’s guest is Safi Rauf, an Afghan refugee who came to the U.S. as a teen and is now the president and founder of Human First Coalition. Also a veteran, he tells us about his work in Afghanistan helping to evacuate local interpreters who worked with American troops. He shares the astonishing story of how he was taken hostage—and eventually released—by the Taliban while working there. He also talks about the Afghan Adjustment Act and the obstacles he’s run into while advocating for it. Plus, writers Rob Christensen and Tocarra Mallard stop by for a little schadenfreude about Trump’s very bad midterms week.

    Rep. Katie Porter Can Explain Anything: Inflation, GO!

    Rep. Katie Porter Can Explain Anything: Inflation, GO!

    This week we’re talking to Rep. Katie Porter, the Democratic congresswoman from California’s 47th district, who wields her whiteboard like a weapon. She explains (in plain English!) what we’ve got wrong about inflation and why Congress isn’t jumping at the chance to fix it. She updates us on the midterm elections, breaks down the hypocrisy of Republican rhetoric on crime, and blows our minds about why political ads never show members of Congress doing actual work. Plus, we’ve got writers Jay Jurden and Alexa Loftus here talking about Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover. Stream our newest episode, “Allies: Friends Without Benefits, ” starting November 4 on Apple TV+!

    The Fumes of an Empire: UK Chaos and the U.S. Midterms

    The Fumes of an Empire: UK Chaos and the U.S. Midterms

    The midterms are two weeks out and chaos just keeps building. The UK is cycling through prime ministers faster than James Bonds as their economic crisis continues. Meanwhile, election deniers in the U.S. are whipping themselves into a frenzy. Jon is joined by British journalist Gabriel Gatehouse to break down what’s happening in the UK, plus what his QAnon and election-conspiracy reporting might tell us about our democracy’s post-election fate—if this election ever ends. Writers Tocarra Mallard and Robby Slowik are also here talking Ye and Adidas, antisemitism, and the conspiracy earworms that have infected us all.




    Stream our newest episode, “Midterms: This Is What Democracy Looks Like?,” starting October 28 on Apple TV+.

    Why Does Fighting Inflation Have to Hurt So Much?

    Why Does Fighting Inflation Have to Hurt So Much?

    Jon is joined by Steve Hanke, a professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University, for a chat about why we find ourselves in this current inflation disaster and how we might get out of it. They get into whether the Fed is blowing it, the role of money supply, and whether anyone is looking out for the little guy in all of this monetary maneuvering. They don’t always agree, but Jon manages to score a passing grade from the professor! Plus, staff writers Kasaun Wilson and Henrik Blix are here talking about Kanye’s anti-Semitism and, of course, the Mets.




    Stream our newest episode, “Globalization: Made in America,” starting October 21 on Apple TV+.
