    Oral History of the Blogosphere Part 9: Jesse Taylor

    Oral History of the Blogosphere Part 9: Jesse Taylor

    Last week Scott and I had the opportunity to interview Jesse Taylor, founder of the late lamented Pandagon. We talked about the early history of Pandagon, about how Jesse and Ezra Klein schemed out each day at the blog, about how Jesse brought Amanda Marcotte aboard, about the professionalization of the blogosphere, and finally about a few of the more bizarre sequences that Jesse endured over the history of the blog. Unfortunately, the archives of Pandagon exist now only in our memory…

    LGM Podcast: The War on Drugs and Latin America

    LGM Podcast: The War on Drugs and Latin America

    Today’s podcast features Christy Thornton of Johns Hopkins University, discussing her recent New York Times op-ed on the complete failure of the War on Drugs and its impact in Latin America. We discuss how the Biden administration has moved forward significantly on admitting this within domestic policy, but how the war on drugs continues in Latin America with disastrous consequences. We also discuss why this is and how fears of Republican policy attacks lead to Democrats engaging in self-defeating policies, such as this one.

This is a book that will interest a lot of LGM readers and listeners. In this podcast, we discuss the legacy of Henry Ford, how anti-corporate Midwest populism was so easily morphed to fit authoritarian regimes, the international reputation of Ford as the future of the world, and the differences between how the Soviets and the Nazis took these ideas for their own purposes.

    LGM Podcast: Gorby’s Legacy

    10/12/1986 President Reagan says goodbye to Soviet General Secretary Gorbachev after the last meeting at Hofdi House Reykjavik Iceland







    On the latest LGM podcast Cheryl, Erik and myself jabbered a bit about Mikhail Gorbachev’s legacy. This included thoughts on the distance between Russian and American understandings of the former Soviet president, as well as discussion of the extent to which the end of the Cold War remains a “hinge” of international history.

Excellent

Topical politics are not usually what I want from a podcast but I have really been enjoying this show. Great conversations and analysis plus regular episodes on subjects other than topical politics. Loved the one on Goodfellas!

Not informative

I’ll be blunt. I am right if center. The only purpose of this podcast from the episodes I have listened to (I’ve heard 6-7 episodes), would be to push left wing propaganda in the areas this podcast addresses. The men are weak left-leaning intellectual types. They seem to have no self-earned world experience. They never have any good productive ideas. This podcast only produces white noise.

How Was I To Know

this podcast was lively and thoughtful?
Farley, Loomis, Duss, and the rest offer interesting ideas backed up by strong debate. Highly recommended!
