2380 - The NRA: The Unauthorized History w/ Frank Smyth + Member Archive: Michael Hastings On How Occupy Was Spied On - Feb 2012

Podcast cover
Read more

https://youtu.be/FrZo2h-S2dc

Frank Smyth joins Sam to discuss his new book, "The NRA: The Unauthorized History." The NRA is one of the three most powerful lobbying groups in Washington, DC, consistently opposing restrictions on gun ownership and enjoying a mutually beneficial relationship with Trump and the GOP. But it has not always been this way. In this book, Smyth traces the history of the organization, from its surprising roots in post-Civil War New York City, to the "Cincinnati Revolt” of 1977 that changed its political direction, to the rabidly reactionary force it is today.

2379 - How Hollywood Helped The USA Lie About The Atom Bombing Of Japan w/ Greg Mitchell + Member Archive: Michael Hastings on America's Runaway Military

Podcast cover
Read more

Greg Mitchell joins Sam to discuss his new book, The Beginning or the End: How Hollywood―and America―Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. In 1945, multiple Hollywood studios set out to make films about the advent of the atomic bomb — including one written by Ayn Rand. In this book, Mitchell tells the story of how President Truman and the military successfully pressured Hollywood to drain these films of all critique, revealing how the government molded culture into propaganda in postwar America.

And for members: Sam talks with late journalist Michael Hastings on Stanley McCrystal.

On today's show: Laura Ingraham says Biden will raise statues of Colin Kaepernick and Stacey Abrams.

Sam hosts historian Federico Finchelstein (@FinchelsteinF) to discuss his new book, A Brief History of Fascist Lies, why fascists regard obvious and often hateful lies as truth, and why so many of their followers have believed the falsehoods. The differences between fascists' lies and lies told by normal politicians. What is "populism" and do left- and right-wing populism have anything in common? Is Bernie Sanders actually a left-wing populist? The substitution of a charismatic leader for "the people," and who "the people" are to figures like Trump and Bolsonaro. The connections between fascism and capitalism.

Gov Dan Patrick says he won't listen to Fauci and his science, doesn't need him anymore. Florida Gov.

Brian Kilmeade says withdrawing from Afghanistan would not be an "apt reward" for 19 years of war. Mitch McConnell warns Democrats about changing legislative fillibuster rule. Brian Kilmeade says NYers "gonna get a taste" with a (not really all that) reduced police force. Who will be Biden’s VP pick?

2368 - Those Who Know Don't Say: the Black Freedom Movement & the Carceral State w/ Garrett Felber

Podcast cover
Read more

Sam hosts Garrett Felber, professor of history at the University of Mississippi, to discuss his new book, Those Who Know Don't Say: The Nation of Islam, the Black Freedom Movement, and the Carceral State. Sam and Felber discuss the organizing tactics used by black nationalists from within the carceral state and the Nation of Islam. Felber's book spotlights the local organizers on the ground and how such efforts differed from the national politics of black civil rights. Sam and Felber compare and contrast the 1960s civil rights movement to contemporary BLM actions, the multiracial composition of today's protests, and self-reporting and recording of police behavior. The two conclude their conversation assessing the long fight against "police reform." 

And in the Fun Half: Trump's triple interview Monday shows his campaign's desperation, the Weinstein Brothers are who we thought they were, cultural Marxism returns to Fox & Friends, rising cases in across the sun belt, AOC's implied endorsement of Sam, the Peterson foundation, plus your calls and IMs!

Podcast cover

Sam hosts environmental lawyer Barbara Freese to discuss her new book, Industrial-Strength Denial: Eight Stories of Corporations Defending the Indefensible, from the Slave Trade to Climate Change. Sam and Freese discuss how the psychology of corporate denial has remained the same over centuries.

Sam and Freese also delve into how society fights back against corporate lies using tools of democracy like boycotts, government intervention, and media scrutiny.

How calls to defund or even abolish the police went from a longtime activist demand to a widespread, common sense idea. The advances made in the recent wave of protests. The ideas carried forward from Occupy. How a looming wave of evictions could re-start the struggle.

On the fun half: Cop apologizes to his colleagues for taking a knee with protesters. General Milley apologizes for his part in Trump bible photo op. Trump rally RSVP has registrants sign Covid waiver. Fox & Friends wonder if Trump understands the significance of Juneteenth. ‘Cowards’: Congressman (and former Black Panther) Bobby Rush slams Chicago police caught lounging in his office amid looting. Ainsley says the Juneteenth rally in Tulsa is "a great opportunity" to help race relations. Trump says the cops are "dominating the streets with compassion." Tom Cotton warns of the slippery slope of renaming bases, Washington monument will be renamed "obelisk of wokeness." Matt Walsh says systemic racism isn't real, look at Ilhan Omar, AOC, and Obama.
