    2584 - Can Antitrust Laws Destroy Surveillance Capitalism and Tech Monopolies? w/ Cory Doctorow

    2584 - Can Antitrust Laws Destroy Surveillance Capitalism and Tech Monopolies? w/ Cory Doctorow

    Sam and Emma host journalist Cory Doctorow to discuss his new book “How to Destroy Surveillance Capitalism” on the issue of tech monopolies, antitrust laws, and what we can do to reign in Facebook and Google. They explore big tech’s self-portrayal as mind manipulators, how their power comes from a historically cooperative relationship between the government and monopolies, and Doctorow dissects how increased interoperability and expansive antitrust laws can begin to break up this relationship. Then, Sam and Emma talk Republicans getting out to suppress the vote, and watch Texas Representative Rafael Anchia explain the unsurprisingly racist relationship between purity and voting laws to a somehow surprised Briscoe Cain.
    And in the Fun Half: The group chats horrible bosses, cancel culture’s cross-species impact, and monopolies as a natural endpoint of capitalist accumulation, before Ryan from NJ helps unpack the unemployment myths Fox has been peddling. Next, Coop calls in to explore the democratization of Brooklyn’s energy grid, Adam from NY talks progressive chances in purple districts, and Sam and Emma watch David Litt jump on Newsmax’s Monday blues. Plus, your calls and IMs!

    2583 - Donald Trump’s Chokehold on Republican Fealty & Chevron’s Criminal Conspiracy w/ Digby & Steven Donziger

    2583 - Donald Trump’s Chokehold on Republican Fealty & Chevron’s Criminal Conspiracy w/ Digby & Steven Donziger

    Sam and Emma host Heather Parton, columnist at Salon.com and proprietor of “Digby’s Hullabaloo,” and talk with attorney Steven Donziger about the criminal conspiracy that Chevron has been enacting against him. Heather, Sam, and Emma delve deep into the chokehold Donald Trump has over Republican fealty, and what (and who) this might affect in the coming midterms. Then, Steven Donziger recounts the ongoing attempt to force him into jail as part of a greater conspiracy to continue imperialist exploitation of indigenous folks in Ecuador and elsewhere. Emma, Sam, and Steven explore how Chevron has been using a private prosecutorial regime and a network of corrupt judges to force criminal contempt and RICO charges on him, with the aim of undermining an Ecuadorian Supreme Court decision defending Indigenous people’s human rights.
    And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma encourage ICE agents to resign in protest of Biden’s immigration policy, they explore Tucker Carlson’s manipulation of VAERS as part of the broader anti-vax disinformation campaign, and Charlie Kirk recoins tragedy of the commons. Next, Laura Ingraham and Dinesh D’Souza rage against BrainPOP, exploring how Moby the educational robot is undermining the American family unit, and the Utah GOP come together to express their dearest grievances - beyond Mitt Romney - from the cancellation of dixie to “taxed enough already!” Plus, your calls and IMs!

    2582 - What's In Store With a 6-3 Conservative Supreme Court? w/ Ian Millhiser

    2582 - What's In Store With a 6-3 Conservative Supreme Court? w/ Ian Millhiser

    Sam and Emma host Ian Millhiser, Vox senior correspondent, to discuss his new book, “The Agenda: How a Republican Supreme Court Is Reshaping America,” and how conservative control of the courts could impact democratic government for years to come. They chat about coming out of a decade defined by congressional inaction and judicial activism, how the SCOTUS is seeking to defang congressional delegation abilities and boost (certain) religious exemptions, and how republicans have embedded their roots of minority rule in all levels of the court system. Next, Fox News hosts Ron DeSantis’s assault on enfranchisement, McConnell’s dedication to obstruction, and the positives and… more positives of Biden waiving the vaccine patents.
    And in the Fun Half: Emma explores the NHL’s refusal to hold Tom Wilson accountable, Andrew from Chicago gives domestic insight into evangelical politics, and the group sees first-hand Israeli excuses for forced Palestinian exile. Montana Gov. Gianforte promotes deprivation for the sake of dignity, the CIA tries to rebrand from puppet dictators to millennial girl bosses, and Caitlyn Jenner and her community’s fight and flight are triggered by the mere existence of poverty. Lastly, the group shares their favorite James O’Keefe disinformation attempts, plus, your calls and IMs!
