The Ezra Klein Show
This is another great podcast. The most recent interview is with journalist Jane Mayer who broke the story about the sexual abuse of Eric Schneiderman. She also wrote a must-read book about the Mercer family “Dark Money.” Years ago I read her book about the Clarence Thomas hearings “Strange Justice: The Selling of Clarence Thomas” (1994).
While we’re on the subject of Clarence Thomas, Mayer mentions in this interview and we all need to remember that Joe Biden made a decision during the hearings to not allow several other women Clarence Thomas had abused to testify. This one decision could have gone a long way to changing the way women were treated and Biden is responsible for it. There are things you can’t apologize for. This is one of them. The thought of Biden running for president in 2020 makes me sick at my stomach.
