Screaming Complaints

Grandstanding about grandstanding.

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s latest PR stunt is a fight against Jim Jordan and Republican grandstanding. Sarah and David tear through the 50-page lawsuit before getting to a special guest interview with Andrew Brasher, former Solicitor General of Alabama.

Show Notes:
-Bragg goes after Jordan: merit + lots of nonsense
-The cruel unfairness of debating someone who’s good at debating, see: Isgur v Goldberg on Nazis marching in Skokie
-A sidebar on actually listening to opinions different than yours
-Judge Brasher on SGs and career paths.
-The clerk application process isn’t great
-Wordle and CIA-level crossword secrets
