Political scientist and host of the American Exception podcast Aaron Good discusses lawsuits against the FBI, CIA, and NYPD filed by the family of Malcolm X, questions about his assassination, what Malcolm X represented to the CIA and other actors in the US security state, and similarities between him and other assassinated figures like John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.
Former Associate Deputy Attorney General of the United States Bruce Fein discusses the Georgia grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump's actions following the 2020 election, whether that state’s investigation could result in significant indictments, whether the actions of some involved could jeopardize any indictments issued, and what could come of resulting indictments on Trump and his associates.
Economist and leading activist and evangelist for Modern Monetary Theory Steve Grumbine discusses the latest price indicators in the US and what they reveal about this administration’s economic policies. He breaks down ways to fight inflation other than interest rate increases, how unregulated government investment in industry can exacerbate inequality, how the East Palestine train derailment disaster illustrates the government’s failure to serve citizens, and whether the politicization of East Palestine will benefit those affected by the chemical spill.
