    Special: US Supreme Court F@#ks Renters; Thought Slime Continues to be Right About Landlords

    Special: US Supreme Court F@#ks Renters; Thought Slime Continues to be Right About Landlords

    The Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration's Covid-related eviction moratorium on Thursday, 8/26/21 (apologies for the references in the video to “today’s” Supreme Court decision - it took me longer to finish this than I hoped). 
    Also, Thought Slime is non-binary, which I forgot at the time of recording, and I reflexively used he/him pronouns. I believe I once heard Thought Slime say they don’t mind he/him pronouns, so hopefully not too much offense is taken. I do apologize anyway. 
    BTW: Regarding the status of the third Chauvin Chunk, I am going to delay that until the case enters a more active phase since there seems to be very little interest in that content at the moment.

    Derek Chauvin Trial Update (Chauvin Chunks #2)

    Derek Chauvin Trial Update (Chauvin Chunks #2)

    Here's what's new in the trial of Derek Chauvin: the prosecution protests part of the judge's sentencing order due to the appearance of racial bias against the child witnesses; and the press seeks immediate disclosure of the jurors' identities.

    Bonus audio episode: Cat Helps Solve New York Times Crossword

    I have been live-solving the NYT crosswords and posting the vids to YouTube. I decided to link them to Patreon for the benefit of all the wonderful Habeas Humor patrons. On today's puzzle, I got a bunch of help from Yara, and we made excellent time on this puzzle! It's even tight enough to be a bonus episode of the HH podcast.

    Derek Chauvin Prison Sentence

    Derek Chauvin Prison Sentence

    June 25 is the scheduled sentencing hearing for Derek Chauvin, the police officer who was convicted in a Minnesota court of the murder of George Floyd. The prosecution is seeking a 30 year sentence, and the defense is seeking probation. In this video, a real lawyer explains why the overwhelming likelihood is that Chauvin will be sentenced to serve between 15 and 20 years in prison. This is the first of Habeas Humor's "Chauvin Chunks" miniseries.

    Please note: federal charges are also pending against Derek Chauvin for both the George Floyd killing and a prior incident of alleged police brutality. If convicted in federal court, Chauvin could face life in prison or even the death penalty.

    Part 2: Taking the Pink Pill (Path to the Alt Right)

    Part 2: Taking the Pink Pill (Path to the Alt Right)

    (Part 2 of 2) Right wingers Classically Abby, Rush Limbaugh, Dear Abby, Phyllis Schlafly, and many, many others have made careers out of fighting feminism. Additionally, they peddle their services as self-appointed judges of proper womanhood. Beware, as buying into such ideas, a.k.a. "taking the pink pill" leads not only to normalized misogyny but also to alt-right extremism.

Only downfall is the random release schedule.

Wonderfully Witty

I just stumbled on this podcast and I’m an instant fan! Im already binge listening my way through the back episodes. It’s so refreshing to hear such intelligently funny and well researched content. Top it all off with nice production, great music and sound bytes, this pod is a real stand out!!!
