On this week’s beefy podcast, we talk to investigative journalist Scott Morris of the Vallejo Sun about two militia bros who plotted to bomb the Democratic Part HQ in Sacramento. Then we get into the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation case and the right wing bullshit around it. First we’ll hear what Jim Wheaton from the First Amendment Project says about the legal ramifications of the case and then award-winning anti-rape activist Wagatwe Wanjuki anaylzses the social impact of this trial and the media about it. Lastly, we have our recurring segment, “What the Fuck, Arizona?” with Haley from Arizona Right Wing Watch, who’s going to talk about the hearing in the AZ legislature over Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules. May the lord have mercy on our souls.SHOW NOTES:
A note from the editor...
LCRW will ALWAYS publish ALL of our content free-of-charge for the public good. Our work is supported by readers like you!!
I'm a broke journalist and run this outlet mostly out-of-pocket. I would love nothing more than to be able to dedicate 100% of my time to doing this coverage.
Support for LCRW has allowed me to travel to report, make ends meet every month, and even buy gear and software licenses for my work. I can't thank the folks who donate enough.
