Episode details


Welcome back to my Saturday coffee klatch with Heather Lofthouse, executive director of Inequality Media Civic Action (and my former student).

This morning we take a look at the past week, in particular:

— The debt ceiling scare, and the House Republicans’ attempt to hold the full faith and credit of the U.S. hostage to their demands.

— George Santos, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and other luminaries of the new Republican House.

— Supreme Court leaks, who Sherlock Holmes would name as the probable leaker, and why the Court doesn’t have a code of ethics.

Grab a cup and pull up a chair, and also take our poll.


And per our discussion, a photo of me teaching eons ago:
