In our first installment, just two weeks after bay area communities held local primary elections – where San Francisco voters overwhelmingly endorsed proposition h, recalling progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin, and at the same time, in two neighboring counties, voters turned away from relatively liberal sheriff’s, in favor of a candidate touting progressive reforms, and in two counties, contested races for district attorney resulted in reelection of incumbents with differing policies toward criminal justice – we discussed the implications of the election for bay area politics and the local face of law enforcementTonight, we discuss the mood of the electorate, and implications of the election for criminal justice reform statewide.

    The Roots of January 6

    When historians look back at this point in history, the single biggest domestic issue will be the investigation of the incursion on January 6th, and the affects upon our democratic republic.That an attack on the capital, on the very day the votes were to be counted, was predicted by Professor Lawrence Douglas of Amherst; he repeated that prediction on this program well in advance of January 6.The focus of today's congressional hearings was Dr. John Eastman, the man alleged to be the legal Archetect of the broader attack on the presidential election. Dr. Eastman, was on this program, two weeks before the election, wherein he espoused false claims about a rigged election.Amidst the Congressional hearings underway, we tonight will replay that discussion.YLR Host Jeff Hayden, and tonight’s Co-Host Joshua Borger are joined by Dr. John Eastman (formerly) the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service at Chapman University, Professor Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of the Berkeley School of Law and Jesse H.

Busy employee ,

Factual but irritating

I must admit that i only listened to the medical episode and one other but the host was rude to one of his callers and to his guest when she tried to correct him. Good idea for a podcast, bad host.

P.S. the hosts lisp is annoying

Jackpot Poker is my new Fave ,

Fear

is the mind killer 🏂
