Matt Gaetz Pal Joel Greenberg INDICTED –– Is Gaetz Next?
Legal AF by MeidasTouch
On Episode 9 of Legal AF (#LAF), MeidasTouch's end-of-the week law and politics podcast, hosts MT founder and civil rights lawyer, Ben Meiselas and national trial lawyer and strategist, Michael Popok, examine the looming indictment of the Trump Organization by the joint prosecutor task force led by the NY AG and the Manhattan DA. Ben and Michael then reopen #LAF University Law School, and teach a mini-course on criminal statutes of limitation and how that may speed up the Trump indictment, unless a tolling agreement is entered into. The "Legal Analysis Friends" next take on the possibility that Florida Governor DeSantis will attempt to prevent the extradition of Trump back to New York, should he be indicted and what a Federal judge would say about that. Speaking of Florida and bizarre events, Legal AF takes a deep dive into the federal conviction and plea deal and cooperation of former Seminole County (FL) tax assessor and Congressman Matt Gaetz's main "bro," Joel Greenberg, and what it means for the likely indictment of Gaetz. Easter Egg alert: Ben and Popok explain why Greenberg was a "queen for a day" and it's not what you may think. Next up, the co-hosts discuss Sidney Powell and her misuse of fundraising money to pay for her personal legal defense against the defamation suit brought by Dominion Voting Systems. A LegalAF episode would not be complete without Ben getting special delight out of "Cyber Ninjas" and their inept "fraud-it" in Arizona, that is now leading to the State considering, ironically, throwing the 400 voting machines they examined because of possible corruption of the equipment by Cyber Ninjas. Finally, and in somber tones, Ben and Michael examine SCOTUS’s decision to revisit Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to choose under the guise of examining a Mississippi federal judge's decision to stay an anti-pro-choice law banning all abortions after 15 weeks. It is an ominous sign that a Republican majority court (6-3) is now doing a full-frontal assault on what had been a constitutionally-protected right of privacy. Learn more about your ad choices.

"A Feathered River Across the Sky" by Joel Greenberg
Everett Public Library Podcasts
The Lone Reader; one librarian talks about the books he reads. Greenberg's book tells how during the 19th century billions of passenger pigeons were shot, clubbed, burned, crushed, flailed, speared, drowned, and blown up; a species' extinction by wanton human butchery. Music: 1812 Overture, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Time: 0:02:23 Size: 2.19Mb
Joel Greenberg talks about his just-released "A Feathered River Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction". Joel is a familiar voice to Outside listeners. He co-hosted the show for the first year. For the last several years, he has been intensely involved in finishing "A Feathered River" and it shows. The book is receiving international notice and acclaim. It is doing for the unique and disturbing story of passenger pigeons on an international scale what his "A Natural History of the Chicago Region" did on a local level. Many of us around here consider that book our Bible of Chicago outdoors. "A Feathered River" takes on bigger and broader topics--the nature and meaning of extinction for instance--and works them over. It is one of those books so good and important that I feel a bit of awe at at simply knowing and having rubbed shoulders with Joel.
