Sea Change Radio, San Francisco (occasional source for TJR) Available at SC's website cchange.net 2023
In his book, American Rule: How a Nation Conquered the World but Failed Its People, Jared Yates Sexton writes that “The American Myth paints the process as divinely inspired and the result of a work of distinctly American genius, the Constitution itself an impeccable guide in all things and a means by which freedom and liberty might be bestowed upon every citizen.” This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with author and podcaster Jared Yates Sexton about his latest book, Midnight Kingdom, discuss the role of Christian Nationalism in the US, and look at the potential ascension of Ron DeSantis as the Republican heir apparent to Donald Trump.

The Supreme Court has already demonstrated that it is out to protect corporations and disempower workers; now, an impending ruling could obliterate workers right to strike.

Palestinian resistance to the colonization of their homeland is being discussed on campuses all over the US, creating enormous concern to the Jewish establishment, which is spending large sums of money to counter this growing phenomenon. Today we examine one of those struggles at the University of California’s law school at Berkeley. We present a discussion of their particular campus battle in a debate between Dylan Saba, an attorney with Palestine Legal who represents the Palestinian students at Berkeley, and Ethan Katz, a professor History and Jewish Studies at the University. The discussion is moderated by journalist and college professor Peter Beinart. This was a classic Palestinian Israeli discussion and that is why we played it. It illustrates the basic difference between the pro-Palestinian movement and most Jewish responses to it. ...
