Max is left to (mainly) fend for himself in this 99-less episode of Show Notes, as she takes a well deserved break. While her presence is missed, it's always worth hearing Max read listener feedback from Unf*ckers who disagree with him.

Pete Buttigieg is in the news a lot for a Transportation Secretary. Either he’s a media darling the democratic establishment is keen to keep in the public eye, or he’s really bad at his job. Methinks it’s both. Today’s Topical Cream examines Mayor Pete’s borderline catastrophic run as head of the agency and the fallout from the multiple airline crises that have plagued his tenure. There’s no doubt this guy wants to be POTUS, but what exactly is he qualified to do other than burn progressives?

Who To Trust in Media.

Who To Trust in Media.

2023-01-1801:03:37

We’re gearing up and doubling down in 2023. Today, Max makes a couple of big announcements (big to us, at least) before musing on the state of the media. The balance of the show is dedicated to highlighting other great work that we admire and follow. We are all the sum of our experiences. These experiences help cultivate our individual biases. As consumers of UNFTR—and in light of one of our announcements—we thought it appropriate to reveal the media sources we trust. We’re anxious to hear your thoughts as well, so let us know who you rely on for political news and information.  Chapters Sketch: 00:00:05 Intro: 00:03:35 Post Show Musings: 00:36:18 Resources Pew Research Center: News Platform Fact Sheet Pew Research Center: Measuring News Consumption in a Digital Era Chartable: Apple Podcasts — United States of America — News Slate: The New Nightmare Scenario for the Media Naomi Klein Cornel West Yanis Varoufakis Jeff Sharlet The Jacobin Mother Jones The New York Times The Marshall Project Al Jazeera Murtaza Hussain Peter Maass Laura Flynn Jeremy Scahill Ryan Grim Abby Martin Spencer Ackerman Laura Flanders David Sirota Thom Hartmann Amy Goodman Christiane Amanpour Throughline Sam Seder David Pakman Jennifer Briney Congressional Dish Brad Onishi Dan Miller Straight White American Jesus Danny Bessner Derek Davison American Prestige Richard Wolff Economic Update Nick Hanauer Pitchfork Economics David McWilliams Chapo Trap House Bitchuation Room Francesca Fiorentini Best of the Left -- If you like #UNFTR, please leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts: unftr.com/rate and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @UNFTRpod.

Public education is a universal part of the American experience. Every one of us interacts with our system of education whether directly or through taxation. Since the nation's founding, a commitment to universal education has been a pillar of our society. More recently, however, public education has come under attack from several places. Some of the criticism is fair. But some of the sharpest attacks have been coordinated by far right extremists determined to break the system and replace it with private enterprises, faith-based curriculums or even...nothing. This episode combines our previous three-part series into one thorough, albeit incomplete, history of public education and the challenges it faces.

Welcome to a very special edition of Phone a Friend, where we reach out to experts, authors and intellectuals who know way more shit about certain subjects than I will ever know. Now this one is a real home game and should prove to be both informative and a lot of fun. He is a Mohawk broadcaster hiding out on Seneca territory in Western New York. John Kane has been the face and voice of resistance and advocacy for decades. He's the host of a podcast called Let's Talk Native, which we've covered before, and Resistance Radio on WBAI and WPFW in Washington. We've collaborated with John a handful of times over the years. He's a man of great principle who calls truth to power not only in the United States, but to power structures within Native territories as well. There are a few things we cover with John today, including some rather big news here in New York that directly involves him. Unf*ckers have heard some of his commentary before, but let me warn you that that was scripted. And unscripted John is a force of nature, so hang on. Access the full transcript on Substack.

From failing to run opposition research on the most fraudulent candidate ever to colluding with Republicans on key judgeships, the NY Democratic Party is rife with mediocre careerists more interested in the status quo than winning elections.

Fascism, Nazism and antisemitism are back in the headlines. Conservative media and the New Right are relaxing with popcorn and settling in to watch as tensions between the Black and Jewish communities increase once again. Today’s episode traces the legacy of conflict between Black and Jewish people in the United States from the so-called “Grand Alliance” of the Civil Rights era, the Black Power and Consciousness movements and the emergence of Zionism in the U.S. to the recent explosion in pop culture. Who stands to gain from this fracture should be painfully obvious, but that doesn’t make for good television.

This is it. The moment about seven of you have been waiting for. The dramatic conclusion to the three part series on public education that no one asked for. Oh, and it’s long. In sparing our beloved Unf*ckers a fourth part, we jammed 50 years of education policy into one hot mess of learning. To quote the estimable Manny Faces, “This iz EP last of smart edumaction.” In Parts One and Two we explored the history of education and the legal fight to ensure equality. Part Three reveals the master plan of the GOP’s libertarian strain to defund education, promote a religious doctrine and battle against the constitutional right to access public education.

Today is the great professor and renowned linguist Noam Chomsky's birthday. December 7th. A day that lives in infamy to this pod, because we love us some Uncle Noam. So in honor of this great public intellectual we wanted to reshare our Chomsky tribute episode. We've got show notes to follow tomorrow and part three of our education series dropping on Saturday, so enjoy this appetizer while we prepare the rest of the meal.

Today we continue our three-part series by examining three of the four major eras of public education in the United States: Expansion, Reconstruction and Desegregation. This episode looks at the legal and constitutional framework that protects education in all 50 states and some of the fundamental flaws that have contributed to a gross inequity in the system. This sets the stage for the conclusion of the series, which focuses on the current era of Privatization. Chapters Intro: 00:00:35 Chapter Four. Phase One: Expansion.

Today is the first in a three-part series on public education in the United States. The focus is on compulsory K-12 education. We begin the series by educating ourselves on the business of education and stripping away the hysteria surrounding mask mandates, CRT, school prayer and kitty litter in bathrooms. Along the way we identify key stakeholders, look at outcomes and measurements, offer a primer on how schools are funded and examine the ongoing mass exodus from the profession of teaching. With a solid foundation in place, the episode ends with an overview of the more fundamental criticisms of public education to understand how and why public education is under attack in this nation.  Chapters Intro: 00:00:21 Chapter One: Framing the Inquiry. 00:05:43 Chapter Two: The Structure and Language of Education. 00:15:26 Chapter Three: The Opposition. 00:26:15 Post Show Musings: 00:38:05 Outro: 00:39:58 Resources World Socialist Web Site: 2.6 million US educators and staff quit public K-12 and higher education jobs during pandemic National Center for Education Statistics: Public School Enrollment The Nation’s Report Card: Student Performance Across Subjects National Center for Education Statistics: Total number of public school teachers and percentage of public school teachers in a union or employees' association, by selected school characteristics: 2015–16 Resilient Educator: Your Guide to Education Lingo Learning Journals: What Are the Different Pedagogical Approaches to Learning?

The midterms are upon us and the Republicans have pinned their hopes on a tried and true fear tactic: Crime. It’s a winning narrative. Always has been. The data paint another picture entirely, however. While in no way excusing criminal activity or minimizing its impact upon individuals, families and society, we need to have an honest discussion about fear mongering and scapegoating. So let’s take a bite out of crime. Visit the episode's accompanying site page.

As i am eating cottage cheese you nuts spend all that time slamming dairy. Jesus about to just delete this Podcast. So much waste of time. Nobody listens to this podcast to get all yours and 99's food choices. Unless either one of you is an MD stick to politics. We want the republic unfucked. And yes I am complaining too much. Just about to delete it though so hoping to keep it.

When first listening to the podcast I felt like I had found something important. But 35% of the Podcast talking about someone giving you a coffee or buying a membership .... hard to take this seriously. Run a few ads dude. No one wants to get excited about seeing a whole hour Podcast, and then after 40 min it devolves into just begging for money.

Very amusing and easy to listen to. I like the presenters wordy explanations and laughed out loud many times. I recommend it as a diversion to the present news.
