How To Be An Anti-Casteist
by Rough Translation
A type of privilege that not most people would be aware of. A good explainer for the signaling used in conversations, hopefully starts a bigger conversation on caste in the US and India.
Episode One: The Documents
by Suspicious Activity: Inside the FinCEN Files
A new investigative podcast from Buzzfeed about the shady financial dealings and dark money of people in government and banking mixing up with the general economy. The eels a bit like Watergate and Edward Snowden-esque with the mystery and explosive info drop.
A Canadian said he killed for ISIS. The RCMP say it’s a hoax
by Front Burner
HOLY MOLY! The guy in the hit NYTimes Caliphate podcast is being charged by the Canadian Mounted Police as lying about being a member of ISIS and conducting a "terrorism hoax" to scare the Canadian public. Even though NYTimes said in their pod that they doubted the guy's story too, they still maintained he was there as part of ISIS and the details might have just been embellished. But in this case, the RCMP is saying it's all a lie. Wow, wow, wow! Link to the NYTimes Caliphate podcast: https://podyssey.fm/podcast/itunes1357657583/episode914812-Chapter-Reporter-Caliphate
1: The Truth Shall Set You Free
by The Fault Line: Bush, Blair and Iraq
Beginning of Iraq war, from a more British perspective. Great choice of narrator and some good sources. My only concern is I think they sometimes take government officials word at face value
The Education of Kamala Harris | 2
by Kamala: Next in Line
This gives backstory that has flown under the radar during trump and Covid. It's a bit fawning, but I'm struck by how little they talk about her ideology. In our current era, politicians seem to be personas more than anything else
