Ukraine Beyond the Headlines: The Kimberly St. Julian-Varnon Interview

11/29/2022
Important reminder! We’re phone banking with our friends at Indivisible for Reverend Raphael Warnock who we need to keep in the Senate, because he’s a good person; Dems need a 51 majority in the Senate to have a stronger hand negotiating with the ruthless GOP/Manchin/Sinema; and we cannot normalize bonkers Herschel Walker in the Senate for six years. And finally, the Senate map is abysmal for Dems in 2024 so we must ensure Warnock wins the December 6th Georgia runoff to stand a chance of...

America's Cry for Help

11/9/2022
By the time you read this, the polls will have closed, but the election will not have ended – and our battle for a free and sovereign United States of America goes on. In this episode, Andrea and Sarah blow off steam that has accumulated over the very difficult year of 2022, in which we lost our bodily autonomy, contended with a relentless pandemic, and saw ever more clearly the complicity of our institutions as the US became the first country in history to memory-hole a coup and let a...

Will the Youth Vote Save Us?

Here is an excerpt of our interview with Dakota Hall, the executive director of the Alliance for Youth Action—the first Black and Indigenous leader of the organization—and former executive director of the Alliance’s Wisconsin-based affiliate Leaders Igniting Transformation.

We've Been Through This Such a Long, Long Time

11/1/2022
It’s November – the beginning of the end, the end of the beginning. We at Gaslit Nation have been through this such a long long time, just trying to kill the pain, and we have mitigated it somewhat together. And now we enter a new phase, where the key digital platform that allowed documentation of the crimes of the powerful and literally made our show possible – Twitter – is being steamrolled by a billionaire shitposter. (We are refusing to cede our ground and will remain on Twitter despite...

North Carolina and the Fate of Our Democracy

10/20/2022
In this special interview with Gaby Goldstein, a co-founder of Sister District, we discuss the Supreme Court case Moore v. Harper, which the court agreed to hear December 7th. Just like Citizens United empowered dark money groups to turbo-charge America's descent into far-right fascism, Moore vs. Harper will unleash a far great danger: the end of our democracy as we know it -- state governments will essentially be allowed to override the will of voters. The story of how we got here is...

Kanye. Elon. Trump.

Imagine: the year is 2005. The Apprentice dominates the airwaves, Kanye West dominates the charts, and you are told that in seventeen years, you will be comparing the antisemitic rants of former presidential candidate West to the antisemitic rants of former president Trump as you analyze the descent of the United States into full-fledged authoritarian kleptocracy. Where is a Tesla time machine when you need one?! Surely transporting us back to an era in which we could alter our current...

Putin’s Nuclear War Tourist Trap

10/11/2022
Putin relies on making subtle and not so subtle nuclear war threats and has done so for years. Currently, it’s his way of making his war crimes and ethnic cleansing seem not so bad in comparison, and trying to deter meaningful response from Ukraine’s allies to try to hold him accountable. We debate whether Russia would actually use a nuclear weapon, what the repercussions would be for Russia and the world if they were to do that, and discuss the strategies on dealing with nuclear threats...
