Rank #1: Better Life Lab Crisis Conversations: Sand and Diamonds — the pandemic upends the balance of labor at home

Podcast cover
Read more

The coronavirus pandemic is completely disrupting the way we work, and the way we live, care and relate to one another.

So much is changing, and so fast, it’s hard to keep up with it all,

That’s why the Better Life Lab is offering  Crisis Conversations - Live from Better Life Lab. With host Brigid Schulte working from home — recording into the cheap mic built into the cord of her earbuds — we're recording live Zoom sessions on Fridays. We want these sessions to be an intimate, interactive space for people to take a breath, and share stories. We'll reflect and gain some perspective and context, and think about what these changes could mean for the future of work, gender equity, health and social policy.

Our lead guest for this episode is Eve Rodsky, author of the New York Times bestselling Fair Play. Eve works with Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, discussing how coronavirus may be upending the unfair division of labor at home. Could the social distancing required to slow the pandemic expose the double burden women have been shouldering for decades, and trigger a reset in gender norms around work and care? We'll also hear a personal story from Stephen Dypiangco, co-founder of Dadventures.

And we'll hear stories and Q&A from attendees on the recorded call. Please visit https://www.newamerica.org/events/ if you'd like to be invited to a future live-recorded Zoom call — usually on Fridays.

Rank #2: Better Life Lab: Crisis Conversations: Living with layoffs of pandemic proportions

Podcast cover
Read more

The coronavirus pandemic is completely disrupting the way we work, and the way we live,

That’s why the Better Life Lab is offering  Crisis Conversations - Live from Better Life Lab. With host Brigid Schulte working from her home office — recording into the cheap mic built into the cord of her earbuds — we're recording live Zoom sessions on Fridays.

Our lead guest for this episode is Rachel Deutsch, supervising attorney for worker justice at the Center for Popular Democracy. We'll also hear front-line stories from four workers. They'll share their experiences of pandemic furloughs, and snafus with unemployment insurance — including one laid-off worker who has called hundreds of times, to try to file her claim.

We want these sessions to be an intimate, interactive space for people to take a breath, and share stories. We'll reflect and gain some perspective and context, and think about what these changes could mean for the future of work, gender equity, health and social policy. If you'd like to attend our next live-recorded Zoom event — on Friday, April 17, about how coronavirus is upending the lives of frontline nurses and doctors. We'll hear directly from healthcare workers living in virtual quarantine to try to protect their own families.

Rank #3: Hi-Phi Nation: The Informant

Podcast cover
Read more

This week we go inside investigative operations in NYPD internal affairs and in the war and drugs to look at the police use of discretion to selectively break laws in order to pursue the bad guys. One former FBI special agent turned political philosopher argues that local and federal law enforcement are the biggest threat to the rule of law in their ongoing use of discretion to secure informant deals, perform sting operations, and otherwise break laws in order to enforce them. Guest voices include Robert Bryan, Luke Hunt, Nick Taiber, and Sarah Lustbader.


In Slate Plus bonus episode: Sarah Lustbader talks about the incentive public defenders have to make informant deals, and whether we can justify liking police discretionary actions to break laws in the interest of busting crooked cops and politicians, but despise their use for low-level drug offenses. They conclude with talk about what makes for valid and free contracts between unequal parties, and whether there is a difference between and offer and a threat.

Rank #4: Hi-Phi Nation: Police Discretion

Podcast cover
Read more

Is a mobile home a home or a car? Is a car parked inside a home part of the home? The answer to these stoner philosophical questions determine the scope of police power. Over the last 100 years, the Supreme Court has presided over the expansion of police discretionary powers to stop, search, and arrest people through litigation over automobiles. This week, we look at the stories of those decisions, including Carroll, Ross, and Whren, We then turn to the political morality of police discretion, and why John Rawl's test of public reason places far more constraints on law enforcement than the Supreme Court ever would. We investigate the consequence of public reasons tests for targeted policing, racial profiling, and consider whether police should have the power to overrule democratically elected criminal laws. Guest voices include Sarah Seo, Brandon Del Pozo, and archival audio from SCOTUS.


In Slate Plus, Sarah Lustbader and Barry talk about how to implement public reasons test for policing, and how the existing system has judges and prosecutors presume that arrest is the default rightful response to lawbreaking, rather than being a default wrongful response for malum prohibitum crimes.

Rank #5: Hi-Phi Nation: Criminal Minds

Podcast cover
Read more

One place where law and morality are supposed to agree is that there should be no crime without a criminal mind, what is called “mens rea” in criminal law. But there have been a proliferation of crimes that do not require knowledge or intent, contributing to over-prosecution and overincarceration. Conservative and libertarian lawmakers have claimed the moral high ground over progressives in advocating that people who do not intend and do not know they are breaking a law be excused for their criminal conduct. Is this correct, or is it just a cover to make white-collar crimes harder to prosecute? Today we look at the battle over mens rea reform in the criminal justice system, the moral theory underlying the idea that being culpable for wrongdoing requires an objectionable state of mind, and why it is that human beings care so much more about mindset than they do about conduct.

Guest voices this week: Michael Chase, Benjamin Levin, Gideon Yaffe, State Senator Todd Kaminsky, and Sarah Lustbader

Rank #6: Sponsored: The Power of Mentorship with Chefs Gavin Kaysen & Chris Nye

Podcast cover
Read more

Whether you’re paired up through a program or your partnership forms organically, a mentor-mentee relationship can be an invaluable professional asset. A mentor can be the guide who jumpstarts your ambition, sharpens your focus, and nudges you to take a risk. Alternately, a mentee can inspire an industry veteran with fresh perspectives and surprising insights. And like any relationship, success requires work, communication, and dedication from both parties. 


In this episode, host Julie Gurner talks to a fascinating mentor-mentee pair who have become successful collaborators in the culinary world: Chef and Restaurateur Gavin Kaysen and Executive Chef Chris Nye.

Podcast cover

By now, Americans are getting used to the patterns of the coronavirus. It largely preys on the elderly and people with certain underlying health conditions. But as cities and towns start compiling the racial data of COVID-19 patients, new trends are making public health officials sound another alarm. Black people are getting sick and dying at shocking rates—and the virus is only part of the reason why.

Rank #8: Crisis Conversations: A new and dangerous enemy — healthcare workers battle coronavirus at work and at home.

Podcast cover
Read more

Many front-line healthcare workers are routinely exposed to the deadly coronavirus, and many of them have made the difficult choice to live away from their families in an effort to keep them safe. Congress voted to exclude healthcare workers from emergency paid sick and family leave, so these workers are themselves forced to choose between coming to work sick, or using personal time or unpaid time, to stay home. Front-line healthcare workers are also witnessing first hand as the country’s troubling health disparities play out, with devastating consequences for people of color. To dig into this crisis within the crisis, host Brigid Schulte is joined by healthcare workers including Dennis Kosuth, an Emergency Room and school nurse in Chicago and member of National Nurses United.

Rank #11: Hi-Phi Nation: Gender Justice

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode, we look at feminist and progressive prosecution; how does a prosecutor balance the aims of prosecuting more gender-based crimes while also being sensitive to the problems of mass incarceration? We look at the story of one Maine prosecutor who is winning victories in sexual assault cases that were once deemed unwinnable, and whether this lowers the bar of burden of proof to unjust levels for gender crimes. Finally, we look at how one study in 1984 started a 40-year trend in mandatory arrest policies for domestic violence, and how these policies have backfired for the communities those policies were meant to protect. Guest voices include Natasha Irving, Michelle Madden Dempsey, Aya Gruber, and Lawrence Sherman.

In Slate Plus, Sarah Lustbader and Barry talk about whether the adversarial system of prosecution and defense makes the criminal justice system a bad way to pursue improvements in gender relations and reduce gender-based crime.
