One of the best episodes of any podcast I've ever heard. As a former prosecutor and trial attorney, I listened attentively with a very special appreciation to Dan Goldman's trial prep description. I work as a stone mason now, and for the entire podcast, I missed the practice of law. Excellent job, Preet and Dan.

This development combined with the lack of impeachment and specifically Susan Collins statement of drumpf learning his lesson reminds me of the words Anthony Kiedis says in the movie Point Break after the house he's in is surrounded by FBI agents. He so eloquently states "FUUUCKKKK... WE'RE SO FUCCKEDDDD" These times we're in are just like that. Also, I hope Collins loses her reelection.

re: stone sentence confusion. I understand that Preet and Anne have been principled prosecutors and have confidence in the ideal of blind justice. They are now confronting the reality of corruption in the judicial process that folks at the bottom of the system have always known. There is one justice for the powerless, another for the powerful. Now it has come to the attention of some folks at the top of the system. Welcome to the carceral state.

great interview with Adm Stavridis. I would love to know if general staff officers have privately spoken of a military coup, given congressional & population hyperpartisonship.

One would think that if you are paying monthly for content you would not have to endure commercials.

Susan begins most points by saying "It's interesting...". In this case, we'll be the judge of that.

Atty Stevenson's decency and compassion is a welcome salve in today's climate. When the proverbial rubber meets the road, it's the simple lessons that are the first to fall away, and the hardest to live by. See each other as human beings; understand that law and justice are not the same thing; recognize when fear—not wisdom—drives action; be clear eyed and honest about the imperfections of society, of the justice system, of the values we hold, and of our selves. This is such an amazing, thoughtful conversation. Thank you both for having it.

Errol Morris' characterisation of the public's response to the 2016 election as a "I want my mommy" response is incorrect, as it has had the effect of eliciting the highest levels of political and public engagement since the 70s. I otherwise enjoyed this interview, although unsure if I'm willing to watch the Bannon movie...
