GasLit Nation: Giuliani and The Unholy Trinity

May 5, 2021

We begin the episode by discussing the attempt of Kremlin-linked oligarchs to intimidate Catherine Belton, the author of the critically acclaimed book Putin’s People, into silence through excessive litigation. We delve into the backgrounds of the shady billionaires persecuting her and talk about the broader ramifications of the world’s mafia goliaths stomping on lone journalists who are attempting to expose corruption.

GasLit Nation: Spring cleaning and self-care

April 21, 2021

Sarah is sick so we’re using this week for spring cleaning and self-care. There will be a bonus episode for Patreon supporters at the Truth-teller level and higher later this week so look out for that! Since there’s no public episode, we urge you to watch “Putin’s Palace”, the documentary by the team of Alexey Navalny, the Russian opposition leader Putin is slowly murdering before the world.

GasLit Nation: Joe Manchin Gaslights America

April 14, 2021

This week we take on the new mascot of obstructionism and excuse for legislative inaction — Joe Manchin! This human barrier to democracy has not received the level of investigation he deserves, so we dove in. We discuss his recommendation that everyone be nice to the seditious Capitol attackers and not upset them with something scary like voting rights, his seemingly self-destructive opposition to the filibuster, and his bizarre voting history and policy proposals, particularly regarding the Middle East.

GasLit Nation: Sleeper Cells

March 31, 2021

We describe the uneasy interim period of the early Biden era and what’s to come when the covid crisis ends – and predict that it’s going to look a lot like what happened after the end of the 1918 Spanish Flu: white mob violence, anti-immigrant movements, economic turmoil, rising fascism, and the consolidation of dictator personality cults. Day to day life is slowly improving under the Biden administration, but the US remains as vulnerable to autocracy as before – unless certain policy decisions are made.
