  • What is Our Recourse?

    We now know this Supreme Court was bought by right wing billionaires. We have seen the onslaught of radical and destructive decisions without basis in law. Two Trump Justices are there illegitimately and Clarence Thomas is overtly corrupt. So, how do we fight back? What kind of novel legal recourse do we have? A giant class action suit against Mitch McConnell by every person harmed by decisions made by this illegitimate MAGA Court?

  • Shallow, glib, commercialism

    They are shallow, materialistic girl bosses (phoney commercialized feminists ... Taylor Swift and Beyonce....? Shallow pop commercialism). I would not recommend this podcast to my daughter, friends, or enemies.

  • Kate slow down!

    Good show but I have a very hard time with how fast and low pitch Kate Shaw’s voice is. I miss a lot of what she is saying. Just slow down Kate -you are not communicating well.

  • Love/Hate

    I love listening to the podcast, it’s interesting and informative. But sometimes I get so angry I have to stop before the end. Not your fault just the things the court does sometimes is infuriating! I know don’t get mad vote. Trust me I bet I haven’t missed a half dozen elections in the last 40 years, including local elections.
