    The Latino Voters Who Could Decide the Midterms

    The Latino Voters Who Could Decide the Midterms

    Latino voters have never seemed more electorally important than in the coming midterm elections: the first real referendum on the Biden era of government.

    Latinos make up 20 percent of registered voters in two crucial Senate races — Arizona and Nevada — and as much or more in over a dozen competitive House races.

    In the past 10 years, the conventional wisdom about Latino voters has been uprooted. We explore a poll, conducted by The Times, to better understand how they view the parties vying for their vote.

    Guest: Jennifer Medina, a national politics reporter for The New York Times.

    The Sunday Read: ‘The Safe Space That Became a Viral Nightmare’

    The Sunday Read: ‘The Safe Space That Became a Viral Nightmare’

    In September 2021, a group of female minority students at Arizona State University confronted two white male students who were studying in the library’s multicultural center.

    The women were upset with what they saw as blatant antagonism: One of the men sported a “Didn’t Vote for Biden” shirt, the other had a “Police Lives Matter” laptop sticker. The women felt they had chosen the multicultural center in order to rile them. A heated row between both parties erupted, a video of which quickly went viral, threatening to upend the lives of all involved.

    For The New York Times, Sarah Viren, a journalist and essayist, explored the incident in the context of “the widening gyre of the culture wars.” The row at Arizona State was, she explained, “a symbolic fight,” one that raised questions of “wokeism” and “free speech,” the perils of viral videos, and the purpose of “safe spaces.”

    “It was a brief drama that was also a metaphor,” Ms. Viren wrote. “But watching and rewatching that drama unfold from my computer, I kept asking myself: a metaphor for what?”

    Florida After Hurricane Ian

    As the sun came up over Florida yesterday, a fuller picture began to emerge of the destruction that Hurricane Ian had inflicted on the state and its residents.

    Guests: Patricia Mazzei, the Miami bureau chief for The New York Times; Richard Fausset, a Times correspondent based in Atlanta; Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs, a national news reporter for The Times; and Hilary Swift, a photojournalist.

    An Iranian Uprising Led By Women

    An Iranian Uprising Led By Women

    Mahsa Amini, 22, traveled from her hometown in the province of Kurdistan to the Iranian capital, Tehran, this month. Emerging from the subway, she was arrested for failing to cover her hair modestly enough. Three days later, she was dead.

    The anger over Ms. Amini’s death has prompted days of rage, exhilaration and street battles across Iran, with women stripping off their head scarves — and even burning them — in the most significant outpouring of dissent against the ruling system in more than a decade.

    Guest: Farnaz Fassihi, a reporter for The New York Times.

A gentle morning show

It’s a crowded field — this show is hit or miss, as compared with the competition. Disappointing choices at times, as with the avoidant response to serial’s handling of the Adnan Syed case, but shines at times in capturing voices of interlocutors

The Sunday Read

Love your show which I listen to 6 days a week. The Sunday stories are as compelling as the rest, or more so. I can not stand the professional readers with their contrived and fake dramatic voices and cadence.I will not listen to them. They are like chalk on a blackboard. The writers’ voices in the intros of their stories are exponentially better and more real. Why ruin it?

Fake News

Listen to this podcast if you enjoy completely biased, one sided, Juvenile journalism. Hmmm, mmmmm, wow. Trump lives in their head rent free. Let’s keep the focus on him instead of admitting to the train wreck of the Biden presidency.
