    The dark history of America's native boarding schools

    The dark history of America's native boarding schools

    Over the last few months, First Nations groups across Canada announced the discovery of thousands of unmarked graves on or close to residential schools where Native children were forcibly sent. The discoveries forced long-overdue conversations across Canada about its ignored history, but they also forced similar introspection in the United States, where Native kids were also sent to boarding schools to "kill the Indian, and save the man." Today, Cowessess First Nation member Chasity Delorme talks about Canada's journey to reconciliation, and Dr. Katrina Phillips of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe speaks of America's boarding schools and their impact on Native peoples across the country.

    SUBSCRIBER CONTENT: Bernie's journey to Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee

    As the Senate Budget chair and a member of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s leadership team, the 79-year-old progressive is one of the most powerful people in Washington and finally has the opportunity he’s been waiting for his whole career: to pass a reconciliation bill with sweeping social reforms.

Help me understand

When I listen to ALL the political podcasts I can get my ears on I hear the upshot from either perspective but never both. I would be very grateful to hear deep informed reporting that focuses on what the “opposition” believes, why they believe that and why that is ill informed. I understand that this takes a long time to cover so comprehensively. I am just finding myself more and more frustrated that the “news” ends up sounding like “Trust me. This is something really bad.” And less like I am trusted to understand when given real information. Are you afraid if you explain why others think the way they do I will start to think like them instead of like you? I appreciate the information you give. I think you are intelligent, capable people. Please return the favor and give me MORE information to understand my neighbors.
Thank you.

the BEST political podcast

out of allll the podcasts about politics / government / the world, POLITICO dispatch is the best one I listen to. & as a political science student, these things can get really repetitive really fast so it’s rare to find a podcast that I’m literally sitting on the edge of my seat for. It’s easily digestible, fun, very entertaining & has great hosts / speakers! Also great that it’s only 10-15 mins so you can listen to it on a short drive / in the shower, etc :)
