Inflation in the US hit heights not seen in decades in March, but is this the beginning of the end? New York grapples with a subway attack.
Misfits John Kiriakou and Michelle Witte are joined by Garett Reppenhagen, director of Veterans for Peace, to discuss the latest horrifying accusations from the conflict in Ukraine, how we should assess calls for peace from the world’s biggest weapons dealer, what the US really could do to end the conflict in Ukraine, and more.
Paul Wright, executive director of the Human Rights Defense Center and managing editor of Prison Legal News and Criminal Legal News magazines, discusses the connections or lack thereof between bail and crime, the role of education and training in rehabilitation, prison conditions in the state of Alabama, and more.
Tina Desiree Berg, Host of the podcast District 34 and reporter for status coup, discusses the animosity between the GOP and Disney, the sinister accusations of pedophilia deployed in this battle, how the left is set up to pay for the crimes of neoliberals, the results of LA’s flawed homelessness policies, and more.
Medea Benjamin, anti-war and anti-torture activist and the co-founder of Code Pink, discussed her recent trip to Afghanistan.

The Misfits also talked about the Brooklyn subway attack, Mitt Romney’s political future, cops using musical copyright to hide from scrutiny, the travails of CNN+, mice at the FDA, and more.
