  • And Sotomayor is not a hack?

    In the podcast on the Chevron doctrine, the host says all the Trump SCOTUS appointees are partisan hacks. After Sotomayor’s declarations about the number of children dying of covid, to solely criticize Republican Justices as partisan hacks shows that the host is himself a partisan hack. This podcast is not to be taken seriously.

  • Brings me joy in a world literally on fire!

    Deep dives into policy and tech solutions for the biggest challenge facing our world. David Roberts delivers smart, timely, astute interviews with entrepreneurs, policy wonks and elected officials to help us understand both challenges and possible solutions without being a cheerleader or a nihilist. His wry humor is the spoonful of sugar needed to face this daunting topic. I listened to the entire back catalogue (transmission lines - who knew?!) and look forward to every new episode.
