The American gun violence epidemic09/09/2019 Duración: 01h05min
In this episode, we engage in a broad analysis of the gun violence problem in America. We discuss the origins of the NRA and the general rules of thumb that maintain the gun industry and associated violence. We talk through Warren's, Harris', O'Rourke's, and Booker's policies (and a touch of Bernie). We end with a discussion on other grassroots, community-based approaches to the primary form of gun violence, which is not mass shootings.
Medicare for All12/08/2019 Duración: 55min
In this episode, we talk about the debates and how medicare for all was a prominent issue that few candidates endorsed. Medicare for all is a basic and easy litmus test for who deserves your respect in this primary. We don't know if the candidates who endorse it will make it happen, but we do know the candidates who argue against it will do much worse. We talk about the myths about private insurance and the myths that stand in the way of implementing medicare for all.
