Amicus: Where We Draw the Line  

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in McCrory v. Harris and Bethune-Hill v. Virginia Board of Elections, two challenges to Republican gerrymandering efforts that resulted in the creation of majority-minority voting districts. At issue is whether lawmakers in Virginia and North Carolina were motivated primarily by racial considerations or only secondarily so. Marc Elias, the lawyer who represented the challengers in both cases, joins us to explain why the distinction is so critical.

We also consider the revolt that’s underway in the Electoral College. A small group of electors calling themselves the Hamilton Electors are seeking to be unbound from state requirements that they vote as their state voted. Legal scholar Carolyn Shapiro explains why she believes the Hamilton Electors should be taken seriously.

Crimetown & Westworld Have Us Like Whoa!!  

This week we dive in to two format-smashing shows: one the up-ends the conventions of podcast storytelling, and one that challenges the concept of story telling itself. The panel examines "Crimetown." This podcast from Gimlet sounds like nothing we've heard before. Are they setting a new bar for the traditional first-person investigative podcast or are they creating a completely new genre? Also, the crime writers give their take on HBO's dizzying & dazzling "Westworld." Was the western-tinged sci-fi series about man's inhumanity, a study on free will, or a contemplation of on the power of story? Or just a bunch of cowboys shooting and having sex with robots? Plus, Toby checks his Amazon Christmas list (is your gift on it?). We'll hear from a listener who offers her two cents on the Justin Ross Harris verdict (and then we offer her ours). The Crime of the Week looks at the War on Christmas...by beavers.

A Better Flu Shot  

The flu virus changes every year, and so does the shot, meaning people have to get a new one each year that only works 20% of the time.  Mary Harris, host and managing editor of Only Human, explains why we're stuck with the so-so vaccine, and reports on the efforts of one local microbiologist to make a better, longer-lasting flu shot.

The Joe Walsh Show - December 08, 2016  

Thousands of leftist babies, continuing their campaign to protest and riot, are planning to disrupt Trump’s presidential inauguration. If Hillary had won adults on the right would accept the results. Americans need to know that the Left is not done protesting and rioting and disrupting. Obama claims, again, that foreign terrorists have not succeeded in killing Americans on our soil under his watch. He is wrong, and he knows it. His audience - US service men and women at Macdill Air Force base - knew it too. US Navy Admiral Harry Harris received a standing ovation for his Pearl Harbor remembrance day speech which included comments about standing at attention during the National Anthem, perhaps in reference to NFL millionaire ingrate punk Kaepernick. An American hero passed away today, rest in peace John Glenn. Food for the Poor fundraising drive rolls on.

HBO Podcast 03 | Westworld (Temporada 1)  

Esta semana en HBO Podcast nos sumergimos de lleno en la primera temporada Westworld, el último gran éxito en formato serie de HBO. "Westworld es una ambiciosa serie de ficción repleta de imaginación que eleva el concepto de las aventuras y las emociones fuertes a un nuevo nivel de peligrosidad. En el futurista parque temático conocido como Westworld, un grupo de androides-servidores se desvían de las secuencias programadas meticulosamente por los informáticos y adoptan un comportamiento anormal. Con un reparto espectacular encabezado por Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton y Jeffrey Wright, Westworld está basada en la película de 1973 escrita y dirigida por Michael Crichton (Parque jurásico), y ha sido creada para la televisión por los productores ejecutivos Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, El caballero oscuro) y Lisa Joy (Criando malvas, Último aviso)."
