My dear husband wanted a podcast version of my blog, so this is for him. You can eavesdrop. It’s mostly whatever’s in the news that interests me, an ex-lawprof in the remote outpost called Wisconsin.
Slightly salty deep bite
Person of the Year, calling Jill “Dr.”, deep and shallow, who cares that Elvis died, writing to annoy, Earthlings.
Beginning to see the light
Dolly Parton, Tony Hsieh, Shel Silverstein, children’s books, luck, Buffalo Bill Cody, mediocre white men, Netflix murdering movie theaters, the collective mind, the Spelling Bee puzzle, the word “headpiece,” Darkmonth.
Getting better all the time
An old aphorism, comic strips, John Lennon, toxic positivity, Biden’s rhetoric, Biden’s dogs, Cher’s elephant, emotional support animals, COVID restrictions on religious schools and figures on New Yorker covers.
First, there is a monolith/Then there is no monolith
A Zen mountain, the “vanishing” monolith, Trump’s wall likened to a Christo project, the fiction of “The Crown,” David Brooks’s notion of the “rotting” GOP mind, lax grooming in COVID times, learning from hermits in COVID times, and the memory of smells.
Pilgrims and pardons
Pardons, pilgrims, vacuuming, canceling....
Mystery metal monolith
Trump’s non-bombshell, Trump’s subversion, Rudy’s movie, kids and COVID, Madison’s #1, Hillbilly Elegy, Biden loyalists want taking care of, the monolith of the Canyonlands, Trump’s non-weird 90-second press conference.

Although an outstanding supplement to the her blog (and her cast of erudite commenters), the podcast stands out on its own merits. Thoughtful and insightful analysis, especially her “cruelly neutral” takedowns of media reporting.
