    The Voting Hour

    The Voting Hour

    Show Summary: Angie’s guests tackle the many obstacles to our most precious freedom: access to the ballot box. Donald Trump has convinced many voters not to trust the Post Office with their ballot, and overseen destruction of mailing systems. Gerrymandering is the norm across the country. And a rising number of poor districts and neighborhoods of color report hours-long voting lines. Angie's guests: Gilda Daniels is the author of Uncounted: The Crisis of Voter Suppression in America; she's a former Deputy Chief in the U.S. Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division, Voting Section. She served in both the Clinton and Bush administrations and is currently a professor of law at the University of Baltimore Law School. Myrna Peréz heads the Voting Rights and Elections Program at the Brennan Center for Justice. She has testified before Congress and several state legislatures on a variety of voting rights related issues. She is a lecturer in law at Columbia Law School and has also served as an adjunct professor of clinical law at NYU School of Law.

    Presidents, Populism, and the Crisis of Democracy

    Presidents, Populism, and the Crisis of Democracy

    Show Summary: Donald Trump, elected in a populist uprising, has eschewed the normal conventions of politics. But the idea of what’s “normal” needs to be examined in its own light. For example – “normally”, laws are drafted in Congress and sent to the President for signature. What if that were a two-way street? What if the President could propose legislation for Congress to approve? William Howell is the Chair of the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago; he’s the Sydney Stein Professor in American Politics at the university’s Harris School of Public Policy. Terry Moe is at Stanford University, where he’s the Wm Bennett Munro Professor of Political Science, and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. Together they’ve created an audacious proposal: what if we looked at the reality of “normal” politics – deadlocked, partisan, vulnerable to the worst of populist instincts – and literally rejiggered the Constitution to fix it? Their book is Presidents, Populism, and the Crisis of Democracy.

    Robert Reich on Democacry in America

    Robert Reich on Democacry in America

    Show Summary: What if the Left/Right divide were more distraction than destruction? Economist and academic Robert Reich says the real threat is the wealth divide. Runaway economic injustice can spell the end of democracy, while we’re busy hating each other over social divides. We talk about his latest book, and the Netflix documentary Saving Capitalism. Robert Reich has immersed himself in the US economy for decades. He served in the administrations of three presidents: Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton. He was on Barack Obama’s transition team of advisors. He’s a prolific book author, beginning in 1982 with Minding America’s Business. His latest was released earlier this year: The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It. Reich is the Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. He co-founded the American Prospect, where he serves as chairman.

    Belief in Conspiracies: The Effect on Democracy

    Show Summary: Q-anon; the Bill Gates vaccine plot; 911 truthers: this week's In Deep is an escorted dive into the murky world of conspiracies. What mental processes lead to belief in Q-Anon, or chemtrails, or vaccines as a corporate plot? With more conspiracies gaining ground – what’s the effect on democracy? Joseph Pierre is with the UCLA School of Medicine; Harvard’s Nancy Rosenblum is the co-author of A Lot of People Are Saying: The New Conspiracism and the Assault on Democracy. They’ll walk us through understanding, coping with, and compensating for conspiracy theorists in America.

    Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump – by Dan Partland

    Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump – by Dan Partland

    Show Summary: The American people divide into three groups. One group is certain there’s something deeply wrong and deeply dangerous with Donald Trump. A second group is concerned but unsure. The third group of our citizens cannot be persuaded that he’s a danger to our lives and country. This hour won’t do much for that last group. But for groups one and two, a new documentary will be of deep interest: Unfit: the Psychology of Donald Trump. Angie talks with the show's director and producer, Dan Partland. Dan is a Multi-Emmy winner of documentary and non-fiction TV, whose work includes series such as A&E’s Intervention, The Sixties on CNN, and American Race with Charles Barkley for TNT. Dan's work also includes landmark films of the independent cinema such as the feature documentary A Perfect Candidate along with Sundance winners Welcome to The Doll House and The Ballad of Ramblin' Jack.

    Susan Fowler – Whistleblower: My Journey to Silicon Valley and Fight for Justice at Uber

    Susan Fowler – Whistleblower: My Journey to Silicon Valley and Fight for Justice at Uber

    Show Summary: Susan Fowler was born determined. From a life of childhood poverty she pushed her way to an Ivy League school.     She swam upstream against misogynist Silicon Valley culture to land jobs in line with her energy and intellect. Then she blew it all wide open with a blog post in 2017, detailing the day-to-day sexism she'd had to confront as an engineer at Uber. That viral post, coupled with #MeToo, transformed both her own life and the halls of misogynist power.     Fowler has capitalized on the phenomenon to advocate for equality, support, and fairness in Silicon Valley. She's worked for labor reforms, including a push to eliminate arbitration agreements.     The New York Times cited Fowler’s "unique brand of courage, clarity of mind, and moral purpose" in hiring her as its technology opinion editor. Susan Fowler sat down with Angie Coiro do discuss her new book, Whistleblower: My Journey to Silicon Valley and Fight for Justice at Uber.

Love you Angie!

Aptly titled show and Angie not only asks the best questions but also listens to the answers and follows up on them! I get so much from the guests she chooses because of the great way she prepares, pays attention, and engages. There’s also a wonderful lightness of attitude in the face of some pretty heavy stuff. Highly recommend!

Better than Fresh Air

In Deep has a similar format to Fresh Air, but I find that Angie Coiro asks questions that Terry Gross might not. Angie is willing to challenge her guests and makes the discussion very engaging.

The show also often has a live audience, and their input makes the show lively.
