73: DEBUGGER / DEFENDING DEMOCRACY FROM BIG TECH
370
Big Tech makes big decisions over our lives: What products we see, how we feel about world events, what to censor — to some degree, even what medical decisions we make. Yet who controls Big Tech? The firms are so powerful and rich they really act as judge and jury now. Increasingly, they are accountable to no one. “Defending Democracy (and us!) from Big Tech” is a 3-episode docu-series from the Debugger Podcast exploring the depths of the problem...and the potential for solutions.

71: The Stench: emergency episode
1261
The #SistersInLaw get together for an emergency session to discuss the leak that Roe V. Wade will get overturned by the Supreme Court.  During it, they look at the role of stare decisis, and lay out the dangers of textualism and the extremism of the court’s conservative justices.  The ruling will be a giant step back for our rights and the Constitution, but as a silver lining, could it change the game going into the midterms?

32: Introducing Suspect
361
A big Halloween party at an apartment complex in Redmond, Washington. Themed rooms and costumed partygoers. But by the end of the party, one of the hosts is dead. The police look to the partiers as the prime suspects: was it the guy in the devil mask, the bank robber, the construction worker? As investigators comb through forensic evidence, witness testimony, DNA, and even consult with a psychic, they zero in on one suspect in particular. But for what reason? Host and reporter Matthew Shaer (Over My Dead Body) returns to the scene of the crime, speaks with everyone about a night that still haunts them years later. It’s a series about race and policing, mislaid justice, cutting-edge science, and the kinds of weighty choices that cops and prosecutors make every day -- choices that, once made, are difficult to reverse.'
