    LGM Podcast: That Depends On What You Mean by Crisis

    Cheryl, Dan and I sat down yesterday afternoon to talk about Russia and Ukraine. We discussed:







    * The potential Ukrainian offensive on Kherson* The impact of HIMARS and more generally the question of how we think about technology* The grain deal between Russia and Ukraine* Mutating Russian war aims* The state of the Russian economy* Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan







    Those of you who disapproved of my disapproval of Pelosi’s visit will be happy to learn that Cheryl and Dan were shocked and appalled by my turn towards feckless appeasement!

    LGM Podcast: Quarantines and Race in Modern America

    LGM Podcast: Quarantines and Race in Modern America

    For the latest LGM podcast, I had the honor of speaking to Karma Chávez, department chair of the Department of Mexican American and Latino/a Studies at the University of Texas-Austin and long time alternative radio host in Madison, about her new book The Borders of AIDS: Race, Quarantine, and Resistance, published last year by the University of Washington Press. This is a fantastic book and we had a great discussion about a number of issues, including the ways that racism and disease have intersected through U.S. history to justify medically meaningless quarantines, how the Reagan administration and state governments tried to do this under the guise of “common sense” with HIV-AIDS patients in the 1980s, and how these attempts victimized both Black sex workers and Haitian immigrants. We also talked about the role of the queer alternative media in reporting on this and fighting it. Moreover, we talked about the need to follow AIDS activists of the 80s and 90s as models in modern activism and the deeply limited ways people think of activism today as something that is either about electoral politics or a very vanilla version of protest that has little vision.







    In other words, we get at a lot of stuff in 30 minutes. So listen to us.

    Oral History of the Blogosphere, Part 7: Joe Sonka

    Oral History of the Blogosphere, Part 7: Joe Sonka

    On our latest episode of the Oral History of the Blogosphere, Pulitzer prize winner Joe Sonka of the Louisville Courier-Journal joined me to chronicle the gone-but-only-mostly-forgotten Bluegrass Blogosphere. We talk through some of the history of the local political blogosphere, then develop some thoughts about the broader constellation of local blogospheres (most of which are now gone). We discuss professionalization, revenue, archives, and of course the Kentucky Creation Museum and whether or not there were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark.

    Oral History of the Blogosphere, Part 6: Lauren Bruce

    Oral History of the Blogosphere, Part 6: Lauren Bruce

    In the latest episode of the Oral History of the Blogosphere, Rob and I speak with Lauren Bruce, founder and contributor to Feministe. This was a really enjoyable interview, not least because Lauren is as thoughtful, funny and engaging in person as she was in print, and comes from a different class and personal background than most influential bloggers. You will enjoy it!

    LGM Podcast: Welcome to the Post-Post-Roe

    Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Samuel A. Alito Jr.







    On the latest LGM Podcast Scott, Paul and myself talk about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade. We discuss the evolution of Alito’s opinion since the leaking of the draft several months ago, the apparent cross-currents evident in the concurring opinions, and the likely impact of the decision on state abortion policy. Towards the end we discuss the ramifications of the end of Roe for the IVF industry.

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!
