    How California Plans to Navigate a Future of Apocalyptic Weather

    How California Plans to Navigate a Future of Apocalyptic Weather

    After weeks of torrential rain storms that have flooded communities, toppled trees and brought on huge economic devastations, Yana Garcia joins Inside the Hive to share how environmental justice will play a role in recovery.

    For weeks, a battery of atmospheric rains has bombarded California, destroying roads, triggering mudslides, and flooding homes and farms — all that following months of drought, and before that, wildfires. This week, Inside the Hive is joined by Yana Garcia, California’s Secretary of Environmental Protection, who describes the damages wrought by these extreme storms, and explains what California is doing about it — including facing off with oil companies over the fossil fuel emissions the state argues have intensified weather events in California and beyond. Garcia was an environmental justice lawyer before becoming head of the state’s environmental protection agency, and a native Californian, describes the weather changes she’s observed first hand growing up in Oakland, and the way forward in the fight to correct the climatological balance (plus, she tells us what her mysterious tattoos mean).

    Kevin McCarthy and the GOP’s Cult of No Personality

    Kevin McCarthy and the GOP’s Cult of No Personality

    Joe Hagan and Molly Jong-Fast analyze the war inside the Republican Party as California congressman Kevin McCarthy is thrice denied his bid for Speaker of the House. In disarray and denial, the GOP appears intent on kicking off the New Year with the same old extremist politics that have depressed its fortunes through the past three election cycles. 
     
    Then, Jong-Fast discusses her exclusive interview with Vice President Kamala Harris, who has the Sisyphean task of tackling immigration—an issue the GOP will surely exploit between now and 2024.

    (Re-run) Inside the "New Right"

    (Re-run) Inside the "New Right"

    Author James Pogue talks to cohosts Emily Jane Fox and Joe Hagan about the so-called New Right, the intellectual movement congealing around tech billionaire and MAGA mega-donor Peter Thiel and the Trumpist GOP, which he wrote about for this month’s Vanity Fair. After embedding himself with the vanguard of intellectuals whose reactionary politics, antagonism for democracy and visions of retro-patriarchy inform the agendas of people like Tucker Carlson and JD Vance, Pogue demystifies fringe ideas like the “black pill,” “trad wives,” and “ball tanning."

Family Leave

You know who never complained about this? Your parents & grandparents. If you can afford a kid by all means have them. If you can’t? Well, we all don’t get what we want. It’s why your mother told you to study harder in school. Why should an employer pay you to have a child?
The voice (guttural moan) of Molly Jong Fast is an incredibly rough listen.

Jared and Ivanka

There is nothing I could read or hear about these two people that would make me think of them as anything less than repulsive. How can I care about this selfish and unethical couple when they have been so adept at promoting the monster President Trump and have supported the Trump pseudo-populism that is based on racism, anti-Semitism and fomenting fear of the other, all the while doing all they can to make sure that multi-millionaires and billionaires pay little or no taxes. I would prefer to hear that they are miserable because they are responsible for creating so much suffering and inciting hateful anger with their lies and greed.
