…found here. BigGator5 represented Sweet Meteor of Death 2016; @thekytikat moderated. I feel that I acquitted myself reasonably well, although I probably should have talked more about The King In Yellow.
They let me ramble on about the Baltimore riots for a bit. Quite a bit, really. I apparently have views.
Fausta’s program; you can listen in via the link. The topic will be the midterms, so you know that there’s going to be some of the gloating and the snickering and the sudden change to sobriety and the going just as suddenly back to gloating.
…you can hear it here. The topic will at least touch on the Rotten Week that a lot of Democratic candidates had last week, and we’ll also be testing out the new audio rig* that has been provided for me. Should be fun.
*I am already scheduling phone interviews with various candidates in various races; this new rig will hopefully make such things a lot easier, and certainly a lot more, well, audible.
I did my twice-monthly radio podcast with Fausta today – we discussed Tea Parties, Cuba, the “Bush Six,” pirates of Somalia, the Vatican’s rejection/non-rejection of pro-choice ambassadors, the DHS rightwing extremist issue, and even a quick mention of IL-05. And, oh yeah, I sneered at the pro-torture Left. Just because I felt like it. Podcast and the various links mentioned after the fold.
I would like to note that the stories “The Bush Six to Be Indicted” and “The Practice Of Law Is Under Indictment — Where Is The ABA?” are of particular importance. To recap: the Daily Beast is reporting that six members of the Bush administration are going to be indicted in a Spanish court for offering legal advice. I was, shall we say, rather vehement in my commentary, which can boil down to “If the Obama administration does not make it clear that this is intolerable, the current people in government had best hope that the Democrats stay in power for the rest of eternity.” With a lot more angry stammering, but then this topic annoys.
Not to mention makes me worry more about the future of our democratic system more than anything else going on right now.
In which I Jacobin all over the place again. Link here, or listen below.
I like doing these, so you’re stuck with me mentioning these when I do them. Continue reading Fausta’s podcast (03/16/09): Engel, PMA, and organic food.
