steady... in the storm

like it, appreciate it, go to it to learn about the inner workings of our legal system, to hear progressive and reasonable voices about the legal and often (these days) illegal world in which we live. I’m a farmer and a nurseryman. I know something about soil and plants and food and machines. It’s nice to have farmers of policy and of law to fall back on when the rug seems to being pulled out from under our norms.
Dahlia is always steady and fair.

Ignorant citizenry

I beg to differ with the host’s comment that the law must be limited because people like DJT and his agents can use lying on mass media to deceive many about his unAmerican and criminal behaviors. It’s not the law that’s limited, it’s the citizenry’s ignorance of the law, as well inability to think critically more generally that ensnares us in such inane binds. This widespread failure of our public and private leaders to provide educational resources to those they represent, as well as the failures of individuals themselves to develop their intellects and seek out the truth in all places is the root cause of virtually all the individual and social problems that diminish our quality of life and erode the fabric of our nation.

Generally, I find this podcast exceedingly worthwhile and I will be a loyal listener for the foreseeable future.

Slate’s best, most under rated

Very informative, captivating commentary by Dahlia Lithwick on timely legal issues of the Trump era. Her appearances on What Next drew me into this podcast, and each case is accompanied by deeply detailed briefings, with minimal but interesting opinion throughout.

It is truly sad what our Supreme Court is becoming before our very own eyes. Thank you personally Dahlia Lithwick for helping me survive the Kavanaugh hearings.
