SIO216: The NYT Polling Panic

Recent polling done by the New York Times has many liberals very worried about the 2020 election. Despite being so unpopular, Trump is polling well against the major Democratic rivals in 6 key states that the NYT polled. Jamie and I discuss the polling and why we should or should not be freaked out, and the implications this has on running more to the center or to the left.

SIO214: Ok WTF is with Tulsi Gabbard?

Jamie and I embark on a Tulsi Gabbard deep dive! We’ve struggled trying to figure out what her deal is, and then the Hillary Clinton story blew up, so we figured it would be a great time to do a deep dive and try to answer the question of…. WTF. Is she an asset for Russia? Is she a secret Republican? Is she a progressive? Find out what we dug up!

Here are some key sources. I read a lot for this but many sources were redundant. The main two would be Jacobin and Daily Kos.

SIO212: A Joker Review

Jamie and I watched Joker, so you don’t have to! Unless you still want to, that’s fine. The movie has generated a lot of buzz and think pieces, with people worried that it would inspire white terrorism. On the other end, though, some people think it is an absolutely brilliant movie. So where do we come down? Listen and find out!

SIO211: Listener Questions, with Jamie!

It’s a great time to stay on top of some listener mail! But first, a new segment, “Feminist Yells at News!” Jamie talks about Brett Kavanaugh’s latest victim complex, and Hillary Clinton opening up in recent interviews.
After that, it’s listener questions! Topics include: supporting local news organizations vs. national news organizations; comedians feeling like they can’t do comedy because of the PC left; is it useful to have conservatives like Ross Douthat in the NYT opinion section; are we strawmanning the Yang UBI arguments?

After that, we’ve got an excellent bonus 30 minutes for patrons! We talk about needing meaning in life, Jamie answers criticism on her Biden comments, and then we talk about which are our favorite musicals! (and not so favorite…)

SIO210: The Case of David Silverman

Former President of American Atheists, David Silverman, has been on an attempted comeback tour. He has done some interviews, including with noted sexual harasser of British PMs, Carl Benjamin. It’s one thing if Silverman wanted to try to seek forgiveness and start over, but he seems to be completely re-writing history and is also adopting MRA talking points in the process. Jamie and I are here to set the record straight as to what he was accused of, and argue that his victim-narrative is quite bogus.

SIO208: Kavanaugh, Weinstein, and Listener Qs with Jamie

Jamie and I start off with a bit of a ‘#metoo in the news’ update. There were new allegations against Kavanaugh that were revealed in a truly bizarre way by the New York Times, and there was also a devastation episode of the NYT Daily Podcast that talked about Gloria Allred and her daughter Lisa Bloom, and the work Lisa did to defend Harvey Weinstein and discredit his accusers. After that, we’ve got some voicemail and email on Yang and UBI. Finally, we discuss an email about white guilt and dealing with relative privilege in our society.
