Worth a subscription and listen

This podcast is worht subscribing and listening to. Shadi and Damir are two interesting and intriguing voices within American public and political discourse. They don't subscribe to conventional thinking about pertinent topics, and push back against typical impulses, reactions and responses that so many unfortunately have today.

Think before you talk

I listened to the episode where they talked about the shootings in El Paso and Dayton. I have liked stuff both Shadi and Damir have written. I found the conversation to be really unfocused and uninteresting. Apparently the worst thing about the two shootings was how it was annoying on Twitter in the aftermath. They talked around the El Paso shooter’s manifesto and dismissed the threat of white terrorism about which even the FBI is sounding the alarm. It was just a completely unserious discussion about the growing problem of violent anti-immigrant and anti-woman rhetoric being acted on by disturbed young men with easy access to guns.
