    Massification, Debility, and 40 Years of Crisis in Bhopal w/ Jiya Pandya (05/16/24)

    Massification, Debility, and 40 Years of Crisis in Bhopal w/ Jiya Pandya (05/16/24)

    Beatrice and Jules speak with historian Jiya Pandya about how the Bhopal gas leak—often described as the worst industrial disaster in living memory—continues to be an unchecked crisis 40 years later, what it teaches us about how to respond to more recent crises, and how organizers here in the US can get in touch with Bhopal survivor activists who will be coming to the US later this fall.

    Transcript forthcoming.

    Beatrice, Artie, Phil and Abby discuss how, as of May 1st, hospitals in the US are no longer required to report covid hospitalization data to the federal government, the enormous information gap that leaves in an already opaque covid data landscape, and the set of questions the pandemic has raised about the complicated relationship between the state and scientific knowledge production, namely: of what use is data we don’t act on?

    Carewashing and the Right to Public Space w/ Tracy Rosenthal (05/09/24)

    Carewashing and the Right to Public Space w/ Tracy Rosenthal (05/09/24)

    Beatrice speaks with Tracy Rosenthal about the pending Supreme Court ruling that could dramatically strip the rights of unhoused people in the US, how politicians frequently invoke a rhetoric of “care” to promote expansions of the carceral system, and how the laws at the center of this Supreme Court case are the same being used to police and sweep solidarity encampments across the US.

    Beatrice and Phil speak with legal scholars Karen Tani and Katie Eyer about how the Supreme Court used cases related to disability and deinstitutionalization in the 1970s and 1980s as an opportunity to remake and expand its own powers, the role that these cases had in securing conservatives’ “New Federalism” revolution, and how disability cases continue to be a site of conservative judicial advancement today.

    What the Solidarity Encampments Demand w/ Nicki Kattoura and Charlie Markbreiter (05/01/24)

    What the Solidarity Encampments Demand w/ Nicki Kattoura and Charlie Markbreiter (05/01/24)

    Beatrice speaks with Nicki Kattoura and Charlie Markbreiter about the proliferation of Palestine solidarity encampments, their experiences at the encampments at CUNY and at Columbia, and to share a call to action for today, May Day: strike in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

    Note: This episode was recorded shortly before the coordinated raid on both the CUNY and Columbia encampments on the evening of April 30th. In our view the NYPD last night proved many of the points we make in the episode.

    Beatrice, Jules and Artie discuss the findings, impact, and fallout of “The Cass Review,” the recently released 388 page NHS-commissioned report that has led media figures across the political spectrum to proclaim that the evidence supporting transition for young people is flawed. But the report, and the ensuing debate, are asking all the wrong questions.

These folx are brilliant

Some of the most unique, erudite discussion on core issues of policy, philosophy and political theory out there. Just great.

I love Death Panel

Death panel is the one podcast I always catch the minute a new episode is released. It's probably the last remaining voice against all of the propaganda in our media gaslighting us into believing that Covid doesn't exist. Thank you for the solidarity.

Real Love Stein ,

Great disability podcast

One of the few places in 2024 still taking Covid seriously
