  • Med knusende kølighed udøver ét-partiregeringen under ledelse af Mette Frederiksen rå magt på en måde, der ikke er set i nyere dansk historie. Landet lukkes på en time, mink aflives på ét sekund, der er selfies og kager og hjemmebag på sociale medier. “Mette” hyldes af sine egne med hjerte-ikoner og folket elsker hende. Den blå opposition synes fortabt, støttepartierne siger intet. Mette & Magten er Danmarks førende S-kritiske magasin, der uge efter uge ser på den socialdemokratiske ledelse af landet.

  • Strict Scrutiny is a podcast about the United States Supreme Court and the legal culture that surrounds it.
    The show is hosted by three women, Leah Litman, Kate Shaw and Melissa Murray, who are three law professors, but they’re also swimmers, mothers (of humans and dogs), and celebrity gossip enthusiasts. They’re women who’ve practiced before and write about the Court in their professional lives. They have a different voice–one that celebrates the contributions and opinions of women and people of color. They provide intelligent and in-depth legal analysis alongside their unvarnished, respectfully irreverent takes. And they want to do it in a way that is accessible to a variety of listeners, including Supreme Court regulars, lawyers, law students, and members of the public who are looking for a window into the Court’s decisions, as well as its culture, personalities, and folkways.
    The hosts think SCOTUS is serious business—but they don’t take ourselves or the Court too seriously. They’ve got hot takes, jokes, and a lot to say.

  • From Russian election interference, to scandals over privacy and invasive ad targeting, to presidential tweets: it’s all happening in online spaces governed by private social media companies. These conflicts are only going to grow in importance. In this series, also available in the Lawfare Podcast feed, Evelyn Douek and Quinta Jurecic will be talking to experts and practitioners about the major challenges our new information ecosystem poses for elections and democracy in general, and the dangers of finding cures that are worse than the disease.

    The podcast takes its name from a comment by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg right after the 2016 election, when Facebook was still reeling from accusations that it hadn’t done enough to clamp down on disinformation during the presidential campaign. Zuckerberg wrote that social media platforms “must be extremely cautious about becoming arbiters of truth ourselves.”

    So if they don’t want to be the arbiters of truth ... who should be?
