Thank you for a great show Preet, I have been so upset by the "family" in the White House! His hijacking of the 4th has me I'll, but you and my plants are making this evening a little more special! Love your show and listening to your guest and your voice, gives me a little more hope for our future. I breathe a little easier...

episode 123: thank you so much for speaking about the 100 mile 'constitution-free zone' as i call it, whereby an older supreme court decision (martinez v florez, i believe), has set up these horrifying human rights violations being inflicted on migrants at the border right now. people need to become aware that ~americans~ have very restricted rights in this zone.

re: the census. i would like a fuller answer to the question of if you have to answer ALL the questions. the contitutional requirement of COUNTING people is exceeded by all the data collection beyond your name and adddress. and what about the law saying that all changes to the census form must be made 3 years prior to the census?

Iran did NOT EVER have a caste system. This is bs on Jarret's part. What she saw was just servants from the lower classes being afraid of losing their job.

Tooba Tr Then one can say the U.S has a caste system bc it, too, has very lower classes (Latinx illegal and sometimes even legal immigrants) willing to do everything out of fear of losing their job. Hierarchies exist in every society,but a caste system has a very specific and loaded history.

Lance Evans Disagree, caste system is what India has, where an entire group of people are considered dirty and aren't allowed to touch or even look at people from other classes. There is no such thing in Iran. Every society has the very low classes, the difference between that and an Indian caste system is that in India there are people who are specifically targeted for violence bc of their caste category and there has hardly been any possibility of social mobility. India *still* uses affirmative action to undo the damages the systen is causing. There is no such thing in Iran, I live in Iran and I would know.

hi Preet, who determines whether a hearing before Congress or one of it's committees, is open to the public or behind closed doors? and does a subpoenaed witness have any say in the decision? thanks for your wonderful and succinct podcast. Paula
