This week, the podcast looks at U.K. chaos and the U.S. Mid-terms. As the site writes, “The midterms are two weeks out and chaos just keeps building. The UK is cycling through prime ministers faster than James Bonds as their economic crisis continues. Meanwhile, election deniers in the U.S. are whipping themselves into a frenzy. Jon is joined by British journalist Gabriel Gatehouse to break down what’s happening in the UK, plus what his QAnon and election-conspiracy reporting might tell us about our democracy’s post-election fate—if this election ever ends. Writers Tocarra Mallard and Robby Slowik are also here talking Ye and Adidas, antisemitism, and the conspiracy earworms that have infected us all.”

As it turns out, after posting this, they have a video version of the same podcast, so you can watch the Zoom feed of it. The only difference is that the video seems to start about four minutes in. So, for those of you diehards who want to hear the first four minutes, I've left the audio podcast version link up.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
