    • Killing Herd Animals
      One of the great crimes and tragedies of our world is how we treat the animals we eat (or whose milk or eggs or other products we eat and use.) Factory farming keeps them in tiny enclosures, feeds them monotonous foods, and then when they’re slaughtered it’s a terrible experience: they’re terrified and die in […]

Following the Impeachment.

There are some people I trust to cover the public impeachment hearings and subsequent vote. These would include Preet Bharara, the legal specialists on MSNBC, including Neil Katyal, Jill Wine-Banks and Barbara McQuade, Susan Simpson @theViewfromLL2, and Heidi Li Feldman, law professor at Georgetown U.

Susan Simpson is hilarious as well as incisive so I’m looking forward to her take. Preet and his Cafe Insider co-host Anne Milgram, former NJ AG, could be possibly the best legal pair podcasting.

I’m open to other suggestions, as well as a format.

For example, what TV channel should we link to in the morning? I tend to like CSpan and PBS for as much “objectivity” and fewest commercial breaks. I tend to steer away from CNN because in their attempts to look fair to both sides, their commentary sections devolve into a bait ball frenzy, loud and noisy voices spouting the latest talking points, and usually no new information.

We know how Fox News will cover this but does anyone want to take one for the team and watch it for trending memes so we can try to get out ahead of them? Maybe we can take turns.

How about an evening summary? Could we include the day’s most revealing moment? How the witness narrative is developing? Is it coherent? What are the ways the other side is attempting to obfuscate? Nightly poll of how likely Trump is to being impeached in the senate based on what has been revealed?

Resources. Should we have a section on resources, depositions, relevant news articles, significant contemporaneous tweets, letters, emails?
