• The Real Story Behind the Far-Right's Rise in Europe

    15 JUN. 2024 · We’ve been hearing that the far-right is on the rise in Europe for a decade now. And yet, with a few exceptions, these parties are nowhere near taking power. Even in the EU Parliament, where the far-right made gains for the third election in a row this week, nationalist parties are STILL expected to end up marginalized and powerless. What's driving them and what's stopping them? Max and guest host Josie Duffy Rice take a look at the rise of the German far-right AfD party to illustrate what’s going on across the continent and how we got here. SOURCEShttps://www.nytimes.com/2024/06/10/world/europe/germany-afd-eu-election.htmlhttps://www.dw.com/en/far-right-afd-appears-as-strongest-german-party-on-tiktok/a-69264717https://www.dw.com/en/germanys-afd-euroskeptics-turned-far-right-populists/a-64607308https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/08/world/europe/far-right-coalitions.htmlhttps://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/06/world/europe/europe-borders-nationalism-identity.htmlhttps://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/18/world/europe/germany-afd-alternative-bjorn-hocke.htmlhttps://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/europe/1950-04-01/european-union-false-hopes-and-realitieshttps://www.hks.harvard.edu/publications/trump-brexit-and-rise-populism-economic-have-nots-and-cultural-backlashhttps://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-37274201https://www.deutsche-islam-konferenz.de/EN/DatenFakten/daten-fakten_node.htmlhttps://www.institute.global/insights/politics-and-governance/high-tide-populism-power-1990-2020https://kar.kent.ac.uk/63401/1/Marchlewska%20et%20al.%20(2017)%20Populism%20as%20identity%20politics.pdfhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3229259/

  • SCOTUS Maintains Access to Abortion Drug...For Now

    14 JUN. 2024 · In a unanimous decision on Thursday, the Supreme Court preserved broad access to the abortion drug mifepristone — at least for now. The justices dismissed the case on a technicality, ruling that the anti-abortion groups and doctors who brought it didn't have a legal right to sue. But the court's decision isn't a solid win for abortion access. The justices didn't weigh in on the substance of the case, meaning it could end up back in front of the court. Already, three Republican-led states are trying to make that happen. Julia Kaye, senior staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union's Reproductive Freedom Project, explains the ruling and what's next.And in headlines: President Joe Biden and other G7 leaders agreed to finance a $50 billion loan to Ukraine to help pay for its war against Russia and rebuild the country's infrastructure, former president Donald Trump schmoozed with House and Senate Republicans during his first visit to Capitol Hill since the Jan. 6 insurrection, and the ACLU and immigrant rights groups sued the Biden administration over the president's executive order severely limiting asylum claims at the southern border. Show Notes: - What A Day – YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/@whatadaypodcast - Follow us on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/crookedmedia/ - For a transcript of this episode, please visit http://crooked.com/whataday

  • Rep. Jamie Raskin On Project 2025

He joins us to talk about why a second Trump term could be more destabilizing than the first.And in headlines: President Joe Biden and other world leaders are convening in Italy for the G7 summit, the Southern Baptist Convention approved a non-binding resolution that condemns the use of in-vitro fertilization, and White House Press Secretary avoided giving a definitive answer on whether Biden will consider commuting his son Hunter’s eventual sentence on federal gun charges. Show Notes: - What A Day – YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/@whatadaypodcast - Follow us on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/crookedmedia/ - For a transcript of this episode, please visit http://crooked.com/whataday

  • How Climate Change Is Impacting Reproductive Health

    11 JUN. 2024 · On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court asked the Justice Department to weigh in on two cases that deal with whether cities and states can hold fossil fuel companies responsible for the effects of climate change.

  • Why Is the SAT Back (Again)?

    8 JUN. 2024 · Until recently, many people—and colleges—rejected the SAT as a racist and classist metric that perpetuated social divides. But now it’s being championed as a tool for closing some of those same gaps! This week on How We Got Here: why does public opinion on the SAT keep flip-flopping? Who does the test privilege? And is it really the best metric we’ve got for college admissions? With Erin on maternity leave, “What A Day” all-star Priyanka Aribindi joins Max to assess the racist roots of the SAT, how it’s evolved since, and how its history reflects attitudes towards access to higher education.  SOURCES:https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1990-11-01-mn-4938-story.htmlhttps://www.nytimes.com/2024/01/07/briefing/the-misguided-war-on-the-sat.htmlhttps://www.wsj.com/us-news/education/colleges-dropped-the-sat-and-act-heres-why-many-high-schools-didnt-ea51cef7https://www.vox.com/23700778/sat-act-standardized-tests-college-high-schoolhttps://archive.org/details/SecretsoftheSAThttps://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/sats/interviews/chauncey.htmlhttps://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2024-04-11/sat-and-act-why-harvard-yale-are-bringing-back-standardized-tests?sref=Ptu9QECNhttps://opportunityinsights.org/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/SAT_ACT_on_Grades.pdfhttps://sstemler.faculty.wesleyan.edu/files/2016/09/2006_Sternberg_et_al_Rainbow.pdf​​http://www.anyakamenetz.net/books/the-test/https://us.macmillan.com/books/9780374527518/thebigtest

  • Harris, Trump Head To California To Court Big-Money Donors

    6 JUN. 2024 · Former President Donald Trump’s campaign rode his felony conviction to a banner fundraising day last week, raking in more than 50 million dollars within 24 hours of the verdict, according to aides. Trump and Vice President Kamala Harris are in California this week to court big donors to grow their campaign war chests with the November election less than six months away. Meanwhile, both campaigns have reportedly seen a significant decline in small-dollar contributions during this election cycle. Arjun Singh, a podcast producer with the investigative outlet The Lever, explains the state of fundraising in the race so far. And in headlines: The Georgia Court of Appeals said prosecutors cannot move forward with Trump’s election interference trial until it decides whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis can stay on the case, U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for a global ban on fossil fuel advertising to combat climate change, and Senate Republicans voted to block a bill that would have protected access to contraception.

  • Sen. Alex Padilla: Biden's Border Plan Is "Unconscionable"

    5 JUN. 2024 · President Joe Biden signed an executive order that will severely limit the number of migrants who can claim asylum at the border. Flanked by high-profile Democrats at a press conference Tuesday, Biden said he was forced to act to address “a worldwide migrant crisis” amid Republican stonewalling on a bipartisan border bill. “Doing nothing is not an option. We have to act,” Biden said. But the president also came under significant criticism from others in the party, including California Sen. Alex Padilla. He explains why he thinks limiting asylum won’t work. And in headlines: The New York Times reports that Ukrainian forces struck a Russian military facility using American-made military weapons, three Trump associates have been charged with forgery in Wisconsin for their connection in trying to overturn the 2020 election, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi won a third term in the country’s elections.
