    The Power of Nonviolence with Jamila Raqib

    The Power of Nonviolence with Jamila Raqib

    Nonviolence and peace are not the same thing. Nonviolent action is action. It’s not passive. It requires courage and dedication and perseverance and being very, very smart and even more strategic. It is an act of destruction, but not an act of bloodletting. It is the path we need to take to tear down the systems of oppression that are so very evident in America today and build something better and more equitable for all of us.

    This week we're honored to be joined by Jamila Raqib. Jamila is a former Nobel peace prize nominee and director of the Albert Einstein Institution which promotes nonviolent action around the world.

    Ending the Filibuster to Save America with Adam Jentleson

    Ending the Filibuster to Save America with Adam Jentleson

    Critical legislation on issues ranging from racial justice, the Equal Rights Amendment, gun violence prevention, economic justice, LGBTQIA rights, and so much more are at risk of dying in the senate because of the tyranny of the minority. The filibuster, an accident of the senate rules, is holding the chamber hostage, turning a majority-rule body into an arena of obstructionism. 

    To discuss the filibuster and efforts to do away with it, we invited Adam Jentleson on to the show. Adam served as Deputy Chief of Staff to Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, where he advised on strategy and led one of the largest and most diverse communications teams on Capitol Hill during the Obama administration. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Politico Magazine. His new book Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy is now available.

    Praise For Kill Switch: The Rise Of The Modern Senate And The Crippling Of American Democracy

    Adam Jentleson’s Kill Switch is the most exquisitely timed book I’ve encountered in years. Jentleson’s explanation of the filibuster’s ignominious roots, and of the mendacious arguments made today by its defenders, is careful and thorough and exacting. Every senator should be forced to read it and then reread it.

    — Michael Tomasky - New York Review of Books



    [An] excellent, surprising new book . . . Jentleson is knowledgeable and adept, offering an account of increasingly flagrant obstruction that culminates in the age of McConnell.

    — Benjamin Wallace-Wells - The New Yorker



    An impeccably timed book. . . . In Kill Switch, Jentleson explains how ‘the world’s greatest deliberative body’ has come to carry out its work without much greatness or even deliberation, serving instead as a place where ambitious legislation goes to die. . . . [Jentleson’s] intimacy with the Senate turns out to be his book’s greatest strength. Jentleson understands the inner workings of the institution, down to the most granular details, showing precisely how arcane procedural rules can be leveraged to dramatic effect.

    — Jennifer Szalai - New York Times



    [L]eading Democrats, including Reid and former president Barack Obama, are pressing for a sweeping rehab of the “home” Biden has found so comfortable. Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy, a new book by Adam Jentleson, makes for a powerful brief on their behalf… a compelling read.

    — Kathy Kiely - Washington Post



    [A]n important new book… Adam Jentleson offers a harrowing portrait of how anti-majoritarian dysfunction has paralyzed the U.S. Senate… he writes with an insider’s knowledge… As the Senate has deviated further and further from majoritarian norms, the House and the state legislatures have followed. Among the great merits of Jentleson’s Kill Switch is that it reminds us how recent this trend is.

    — David Frum - The Atlantic



    [P]erfectly timed… authoritative and well-documented.

    — Lloyd Green - The Guardian


    [A] powerful historical account.

    — Julian Zelizer - CNN.com

    The Black Panther Party with David F. Walker

    The Black Panther Party with David F. Walker

    Our guest this week is David F. Walker. David is an award-winning writer known primarily for his work in comics including Luke Cage and Bitter Root. He is the co-creator, with illustrator Marcus Kwame Anderson, of the new graphic novel history “The Black Panther Party.”

    ABOUT THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY

    A bold and fascinating graphic novel history of the revolutionary Black Panther Party.

    Founded in Oakland, California, in 1966, the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was a radical political organization that stood in defiant contrast to the mainstream civil rights movement. This gripping illustrated history explores the impact and significance of the Panthers, from their social, educational, and healthcare programs that were designed to uplift the Black community to their battle against police brutality through citizen patrols and frequent clashes with the FBI, which targeted the Party from its outset.

    Using dramatic comic book-style retellings and illustrated profiles of key figures, The Black Panther Party captures the major events, people, and actions of the party, as well as their cultural and political influence and enduring legacy.

    The People's Vaccine With Gina Cummings and Dr. Vanessa Kerry

    It's been a year since the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic. As bad as COVID is in the United States, we have the resources to confront it head on. But what about people in poorer countries around the world? Americans spent billions of dollars to develop the COVID vaccine, and now drug companies are selling it to the highest bidder. To examine the state of the global pandemic and what we can do to fight it equitably, we've invited Gina Cummings of Oxfam America and Dr. Vanessa Kerry of Seed Global Health to the podcast.

    Congressman John Sarbanes on H.R. 1 - the "For the People Act"

    Congressman John Sarbanes on H.R. 1 - the "For the People Act"

    On February 23rd, 2021, Alyssa Milano hosted a special live episode of Sorry Not Sorry with Congressman John Sarbanes of Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District. He’s the lead sponsor of H.R. 1, the “for the people act.” This act corrects so many critical shortcomings and vulnerabilities in our election system, and is one of the most important pieces of legislation in the Congress in a very long time. This is a rebroadcast of that live episode.



    About Rep. Sarbanes

    Congressman John Sarbanes has represented Maryland’s Third Congressional District in the U.S. Congress since 2007. He currently serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, in addition to the House Subcommittee on Health and the House Subcommittee on Environment and Climate Change. Congressman Sarbanes also serves on the House Oversight and Reform Committee and its Subcommittee on Government Operations. Since 2017, he has chaired the Democracy Reform Task Force, a bold effort in the House of Representatives to build a government that puts the public's interests ahead of special interests.

    Born and raised in Baltimore, Congressman Sarbanes has experience working in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. He and his family live in Towson, giving him the opportunity to drive home every night and hear from the people he serves in Congress. Listening to their concerns allows him to better represent Maryland and has shaped his work in the House of Representatives.

Right wing troglodytes are trying to tank this pod

All of the one star ratings are a concerted effort by fascists to diminish the reach of this podcast. They just can’t tolerate a woman with an opinion.
