    This week we kick off by examining a country that is technically a democracy on paper but is actually ruled by an unelected supreme court of theocrats who strip women of their basic rights! Is it the United States? Iran? Does the fact that we have to ask not speak to a broader global attack on women’s bodily autonomy?! We look at the brave protests of Iranian women and prepare for a horrific month of rulings on the Supreme Court here in the US. We also note that a woman will become prime minister of Italy for the first time, but of course she is a fascist groomed by Steve Bannon, because it is 2022 and we are in hell.

    Special Master of Puppets

    Hey remember when Trump stole a bunch of classified documents related to nuclear material and stored them in his Florida golf compound and the legal pundits said “he can’t do that” and Trump summoned the ghost of Roy Cohn who said “it doesn’t matter what the law is, only who the judge is” and a Trump-appointed judge ruled in favor of Trump and then another throwback from Trump’s mafia glory days in NYC was appointed “Special Master”?

    Semi-Fascist Kind of Life

    Gaslit Nation is back with breaking news: Joe Biden calls out fascism, and Merrick Garland has still not discovered obvious crimes! This week we break down Biden’s comments on “semi-fascism” (he’s right!) and his September 1 speech, which was notable not only for the Dario Argento production design but for finally confronting the threat of autocracy in stark terms. But where was this speech eighteen months ago? And more importantly, where is the action to match his words?

Excellent

This show is really top notch. Both of these women are very educated, informed and very articulate. They have great chemistry and don’t try to talk above one another like other political podcasts. This is a mix of history & current events that these ladies put into layman’s terms perfectly. Much love girls!

Essential listening for lovers of Democracy

What sets hosts Andrea & Sarah and this show apart is their compassion, empathy, and their love of humanity. They pull no punches. They don't peddle in despair nor outrage. Gaslit Nation is my most trusted journalistic source on the threats to American democracy, the global democratic project, and by extension the survival of our species.

Wonderful and thank you

I love Sarah Kendzior. There. I said it. Just started reading her new book, They Knew. It’s wonderful in life when you listen to people that have been insightful, honest and strong enough to place themselves exactly in the right spot, at the right time, where the world needs them. Thank you so so much for all you’ve done and for all you will do preserving our past and our future.
