    “The inherent violence of all of it” with Jia Tolentino

    Hello from the miserable gap between episodes of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”!This week, Jay and Tammy are joined by the great Jia Tolentino, a writer at The New Yorker and the author of Trick Mirror.We start by talking about Jia’s recent piece on housing (= the rent is too damn high) on the worker-owned site “Hellgate”—and her dreams of organizing her building (not Tammy’s “white projects”) in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, New York. Then, we discuss two provocative essays Jia wrote on abortion after the Dobbs decision: first, on surveillance statism; and second, on the moral (especially Judeo-Christian) sacrifices inherent to pregnancy and human existence, not just to abortion. Plus: Jay and Tammy review Las Vegas's Sino-Korean noodles. As always, thanks to our wonderful producer Mai and all of our subscribers (Jia included!) for keeping the show alive. On Thursday, August 25th, we’ll have our next book club meeting with Lisa Hsiao Chen, the author of the novel Activities of Daily Living. Subscribe via Patreon or Substack to join.

    On today's MeidasTouch Podcast, Ben and Brett are in Washington, D.C. to bring you the latest breaking updates! After a recap of Jordy's wedding, Ben and Brett discuss the historic passage of the Inflation Reduction Act passed by the Democrats, and the Republicans' sticking it one more time to diabetics by voting down a provision to cap insulin costs at $35. The brothers discuss the GOP's descent into full-blown authoritarianism, as the party welcomes Hungarian dictator Viktor Orban to their most recent CPAC event (are these like, every week now?). But having a dictator as the keynote speaker was only the beginning. CPAC featured a variety of other bizarre and fascist exhibits and speakers with the intent of destroying the rule of law and ending liberal democracy as we know it. The brothers also discuss the latest New Yorker article, which profiles Donald Trump's desire to model the military after the Nazis and the newly released photos of Trump's dumps. Ben and Brett wrap by covering the horrific abortion ban in Indiana and its implications. Thank you for listening and remember to subscribe to the MeidasTouch Podcast and give us a 5-star review!

Meghan O'Gieblyn is the author of God Human Animal Machine: Technology, Metaphor, and the Search for Meaning. Her previous essay collection Interior States, won the Believer Book Award for nonfiction. She writes essays and criticism for Harper's Magazine, The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Times, and Bookforum. Her writing has received three Pushcart Prizes, was nominated for a National Magazine Award, and has appeared in The Best American Essays and The Contemporary American Essay anthologies. And she writes a monthly advice column for our perennial favorite WIRED magazine. Big Questions How is it possible that humans can become attached to these artificial intelligence pets? What is the “hard problem of consciousness” in philosophy? How has the language of computers affected how we think about our own mind? Will artificial intelligence affect the way we think about God? Suffering? A note on faith Meghan openly talks on this episode that she no longer considers herself a Christian—despite growing up as an evangelical and a degree in Christian theology. She incorporates her personal story of belief and doubt into her recent book. While of course at Device & Virtue we produce our podcast from our own Christian worldview & faith, we felt like we had much to consider from her thoughts and were thankful she agreed to come on the show knowing we were a podcast of faith.

    Using Lisa Guerrero's 2009 article “Can the Subaltern Shop? The Commodification of Difference in the Bratz Dolls” as a framework, Carrie and Ellie discuss MGA Entertainment's introduction of the Bratz line in 2001 and the alternative vision of femininity and style it offered young girls in the new millennium. Guerrero explores four spaces of critical inquiry: the Bratz' paradoxical investment in racial identities, gender and sexuality politics, the influence of consumerism/commodity culture, and the "street cred" culture that provided white suburban girls a "tourist opportunity of the urban imaginary space." The sisters also contextualize the Bratz line within the y2k emphasis on multiculturalism and the specious understanding of America as a "post-racial society" in the late 20th century. Other topics include the McBling aesthetic, the "browning of America," and (as always) neoliberal postfeminism. Works cited include Danzy Senna's 1998 piece "Mulatto Millennium," Michele Elam's 2011 work The Souls of Mixed Folk: Race, Politics, and Aesthetics in the New Millennium, Molly Rosner's Playing with History: American Identities and Children's Consumer Culture (2021), Walter Johnson's 1996 article “The Strange Story of Alexina Morrison: Race, Sex, and Resistance in Antebellum Louisiana” as well as his 1999 book Soul by Soul: Life Inside the Antebellum Slave Market, and (just barely!)

    Brad and Dan begin by discussing takeaways from Kansas, where voters soundly rejected a state amendment proposal to ban abortion. In one sense, it offers hope that pro-abortion movements and candidates can push back in the wake of the Dobbs decision and make headway in the fight for women's rights, reproductive rights, and healthcare in this country. On the other, it will provide fodder for the American Right to argue to conservative voters that the only way forward is a national ban on abortion. Brad then takes a deep dive into Viktor Orbán's appearance at CPAC and what it means that the American Right looks to him as a model for the illiberal democracy they want to create here. He draws on his own work and that of Sarah. Posner to show that the current conservative fascination with Orbán was fueled by the Religious Right and Christian nationalists.

    One pivotal afternoon, Erika Krouse met an attorney in a bookstore when they both reached for the same Paul Auster novel. Much to his surprise, he soon found himself confiding in her. She told him not to worry–strangers divulged secrets to her all the time–whereupon he offered her a job as a private investigator. And so, with no prior experience, Erika wound up investigating sexual assaults by members of a Division I college football team for what because the first Title IX sexual assault case in the country. She did so notwithstanding her own history as a victim of sexual assault by a family member–a history her mother refuses to acknowledge. Now, Erika has written a memoir, Tell Me Everything: The Story of a Private Investigation, about the case and her related life experience. In this episode of Book Dreams, Erika speaks with Julie and Eve about the techniques she used to get people to talk when they were often deeply reluctant to do so; what it was like to meet with football players who had been told, in essence, that she was the enemy; and why she sometimes thinks the subtitle of the memoir should be How I Became an Asshole. Erika relays, too, the many complicated ways that her family trauma intertwined with her pursuit of justice in the Title IX case. Erika Krouse's short story collection, Come Up and See Me Sometime, won the Patterson Fiction Award, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and is translated into six languages. Her short fiction has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and many other publications. Her stories have been shortlisted for Best American Short Stories, Best American NonRequired Reading, and the Pushcart Prize. She's also the author of the novel Contenders.

    THE THESIS: What gives the media nightmares? The same things that give us hope. How can CNN “regain the trust of conservatives?” Make your anchors leave New York and live in red states. Hire producers who have never lived in any major city. Invite people like me to sit and watch CNN with you for a day. In fact, CNN, I will help you for free.  THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES:  CNN's key problem is their culture is godless. Even The Lord, Jesus spoke of needing to be connected God.  John 5:19-20 19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. THE NEWS & COMMENT: Meeting with shiny shoes in D.C. is not gong to get conservatives back to CNN. But, that's what CNN's new boss is doing in his effort to get us back. CNN Chief's Republican Apology Tour; GOP officials say they're skeptical of Chris Licht's pledge to tamp down on-air partisanship While CNN continues to ignore the other shoe that ALWAYS drops when people make insane charges against President Trump, the network will continue to be a joke to conservatives. EXCLUSIVE: Cassidy Hutchinson kept working for Donald Trump for nine weeks after he left the White House, government records show There is no greater sign of the ideological and intellectual divide between the Mockingbird Media class and conservative Americans than that which terrifies the Mockingbirds--namely, limiting federal government power in any way **except for abortion, of course. Republicans' next big play is to 'scare the hell out of Washington' by rewriting the Constitution. And they're willing to play the long game to win. “If they were successful, a constitutional convention led by conservatives could trigger sweeping changes to the Constitution.  Their goals include gutting federal environmental standards, nixing nationwide education requirements, and creating an incredibly high threshold for Washington, DC, or a territory to earn statehood. Some would like to make it difficult, if not impossible, for someone — National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci, for example — to work for decades within the federal government.” If Chris Licht will agree to my terms, and come to Idaho with me, I will show him how loving and responsible the men here are, especially at my gun range. He can ask himself if they seem do dangerous that only groups like the IRS should have semi-automatic rifles.  Epoch Times: “Why is Biden trying to weaponize the IRS?” Rep Jeff Duncam said. The IRS has stockpiled 5 million rounds of ammunition and spent $725,000 on bullets this year, said Rep MattGaetz, who introduced a bill to block future ammo purchases by the agency. “But the IRS isn't the only governmental agency building up massive caches of guns and bullets. OpenTheBooks.com, a nonprofit government watchdog group, released a report called ‘The militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies' in December 2020, detailing how agencies that people wouldn't normally associate with law enforcement were stockpiling weapons and ammunition.” “The Environmental Protection Agency owns 600 guns. At the same time, special agents at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are equipped with machine guns and AR15s. Even the Smithsonian Institution employed 620-armed “special agents,” up from zero officers in 2008, according to the report.” The core problem of CNN, aside from their godless culture, is that anytime a reporter needs to do a story about America--that is, outside the single zip code in which 99% of news media is made--they have to leave home. Look at CNN in Wyoming seeking Liz Cheney fans. [AUDIO] - CNN Tried To Find People In Wyoming Who Like Liz Cheney. It Didn't Go Well Meanwhile, will CNN devote weeks to accusing Liz Cheny of wanting the Capital sacked, as their hosts to with Trump? Inside Liz Cheney's Coordinated Effort To Prevent Troop Deployment Before Jan. 6 “Cheney herself seems to have orchestrated opposition to use of the military to quell election-related unrest, allegedly organizing a Washington Post op-ed on Jan. 3, 2021, signed by every living former defense secretary. ‘All 10 living former defense secretaries: Involving the military in election disputes would cross into dangerous territory,”' the headline read. It went on to threaten any military official who thought any use of the military might be a good idea. ‘Civilian and military officials who direct or carry out such measures would be accountable, including potentially facing criminal penalties, for the grave consequences of their actions on our republic,' the op-ed warned. The op-ed was allegedly organized by Cheney, whose father was secretary of defense under President George H.W. Bush before serving as President George W. Bush's vice president. Eric Edelman, a national security adviser to Dick Cheney, told the New Yorker the Wyoming lawmaker ‘was the one who generated' the piece for the Post.” Perhaps the best cure for CNN, after taking me up on my promise, is to get to know young men like this. Here, with no prompter or notes, this man gets to a core truth about the trip to Taiwan Nancy made you buy for her.   [AUDIO] - "Standing up to China" amounts to getting a tour of a Nvidia chip factory of which she invested in using insider info on the CHIPS act. Her trip costs us 90Mil up front and so much more down the line. - Flexutaro MalcomotoSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
