Colin Powell's Pivotal Moment That Wasn't

Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, Joint Chiefs chairman, and omnipresence in American foreign policy for the past 20 years, died on Monday from complications from COVID-19. He was 84-years-old and been sick for years with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer.  Colin Powell was many things to many people. A symbol of the American dream. The public voice — for a time — of the Iraq War. A so-called “RINO,” or Republican-in-name-only. A good soldier. Though widely remembered as a barrier-breaking hero by folks across the aisle, in his death, as in life, there are those who are using Colin Powell as an opportunity for scoring political points.  Looking back at the life of Colin Powell, it is worth recalling that he was once one of America's most popular public officials, polling favorably among 85 percent of Americans in a 2002 Gallup poll. But what Colin Powell is perhaps most remembered for is his 2003 presentation to the UN Security Council explaining the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. A little over a year later, Powell went on NBC's Meet the Press and essentially retracted his assertion, saying it "turned out that the sourcing was inaccurate and wrong and in some cases deliberately misleading." Brooke speaks with Fred Kaplan, a veteran reporter on foreign policy and national security, long-time writer of Slate's "War Stories" column, and even longer-time husband of Brooke, about the life and legacy of Colin Powell.

This week, Steve and Dana are joined by Karen Han. First, Slate's music critic Carl Wilson chimes in to discuss Todd Haynes's new The Velvet Underground documentary, which he wrote beautifully about for Slate. Next, the panel (minus Dana) is joined by Slate staff writer Rebecca Onion to review Mike Flanagan's newest Netflix horror series, Midnight Mass—which she also wrote lovingly about. Finally, the panel (minus Dana) is joined by Vulture senior editor and host of the Good One podcast, Jesse David Fox, to discuss the Dave Chappelle controversy. In Slate Plus, the panel discusses media they loved when they were younger that they have since outgrown. Email us at culturefest@slate.com. Endorsements Dana: The book equivalent of Todd Haynes's documentary, the first oral history Dana ever read and still one of the best she's ever read to this day: Edie: American Girl by Jean Stein and George Plimpton. The oral history tells the story of actress and model Edie Sedgwick completely through testimony from people that were there, without any interstitial material.  Karen: New World, the Korean crime drama film from Park Hoon-jung that stars Squid Game's Lee Jung-jae. The film features Lee as an undercover cop who is tasked with infiltrating the mob, but ends up caught between two worlds. It also stars a slew of great Korean actors including Hwang Jung-min and Song Ji-hyo.  Steve: First, Netflix's series The Chestnut Man, a dark, taught crime drama which takes place in Copenhagen. Then, a whole genre of YouTube videos taking you from raw audio of rehearsal to mastertape of Elvis's songs, including “And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind”—though, Neil Diamond's version of that one is better. Podcast production by Cameron Drews. Production assistance by Nadira Goffe. Outro music is “I'll Be Your Mirror” by The Velvet Underground. Learn more about your ad choices.

Donald Trump's presidency is over for now, but he left a huge mark on the US Supreme Court. The former president appointed three of the court's six conservatives, and in the next few weeks they'll make one of the most consequential decisions in decades. So will the Supreme Court really let states ban abortion? And if it does, what will that mean for women, and for the court's reputation?

The Story of Jelani Day In August, Jelani Day went missing and his car was found with no license plates or keys several days after he was reported missing. Ten days later, Jelani's body was found in the Illinois River 60 miles from his campus in a town where less than 1 percent of the population is Black and he had no known connections. It's important to note that Jelani was an avid swimmer who'd competed on his school's swim team. The Takeaway talks with Linda Foster, President of the Bloomington-Normal NAACP and James E. Wright II, assistant professor at Florida State University, specializing in policing, about the story of Jelani Day. Jury Selection in the Trial of Ahmaud Arbery's Accused Killers Began Monday Like the murder of George Floyd and so many others, Arbery's death sparked a wave of racial justice uprisings across the U.S. in the summer of 2020. It also prompted the state of Georgia to make changes to its criminal justice law, including the passage of a hate crimes statute. For more on the trial, The Takeaway spoke to Nicole Lewis, senior editor of Jurisprudence at Slate.  Christian Missionaries Held Captive by Haitian Gang 17 Christian missionaries building an orphanage in Haiti remain captive after they were abducted by the 400 Mawozo gang on Saturday, October 16th. Kidnappings in Haiti continue to rise counting 328 during the first 8 months of 2021. We discuss the situation in Haiti leading up to the kidnappings and what we can anticipate with Jaqueline Charles, Caribbean and Haitian correspondent for the Miami Herald. The Life and Legacy of Colin Powell Colin Powell, the first Black U.S. Secretary of State, passed away on Monday due to complications from Covid-19 at the age of 84. Powell, a 4-star Army general, was also the first black national security advisor and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. We look back at his life of public service and his role in leading the U.S. into the Iraq War. For transcripts, see individual segment pages.

There are few periods of U.S. history that are as vigorously debated, as emotionally and civically charged as the American Revolution. And for good reason: How Americans interpret that period — its heroes, its villains, its legacy — shapes how we understand our social foundations, our national identity, our shared political project.Woody Holton is a historian at the University of South Carolina, a leading scholar of America's founding and the author of numerous books on the period, including, most recently, “Liberty Is Sweet: The Hidden History of the American Revolution.”Holton's work presents a fundamental challenge to the version of the American Revolution that most of us were taught in grade school. In his telling, America's “founding fathers” were far less central to the country's founding than we imagine. Class conflict was just as important a cause of the Revolution as aspirational ideals, if not more. And the way Holton sees things, the American Constitution was a fundamentally capitalist document designed to rein in democracy, not expand it.But Holton's work shouldn't be understood solely as a revisionist account of a particular era in history. It also provides a unique lens for rethinking some of the defining features of our present — the disconnect between the kinds of policies that democratic majorities support and what our systems of government enable, the fervor to which we cling to national heroes like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the enduring challenges of governing a fractious, deeply divided society, the complex relationship between material interests and ideology and much more.Mentioned“Rhetoric and Reality in the American Revolution” by Gordon S.

“Punk happened, past tense.” That's what Boomer-era critics and true-believer punks told the younger generations. Punk's whole reason for being was rejecting the mainstream. But punk wasn't just a movement—it was also a genre. And 20 years after it first emerged, punk went from underground to overground, dominating the radio for the first time.   In this episode of Hit Parade, Chris Molanphy traces how punk traveled from Sid Vicious to strip mall, through the lineage of '90s bands Green Day, Offspring and Blink‑182, and '00s emo artisans Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco and their skinny-jeans-wearing, smarty-pants contemporaries. From the CBGB era to the current Billboard Hot 100, punk is no historical artifact—it's still morphing and adapting. And for all its supposed opposition to convention, the dirty little secret is: Punk has always been catchy.   Podcast production by Asha Saluja with help from Rosemary Belson.

Special Report: Jon Ben-Menachem on Copaganda and "Police Pullback" & "Ferguson Effect" Mythology

Millennials Are Killing Capitalism

For this special report we talk to Jon Ben-Menachem. Jon is a researcher and journalist, currently working on his PhD in Sociology at Columbia University, where he researches political economy and punishment. As a journalist he's published on policing, incarceration and austerity for The Appeal, Slate, Shadowproof, Current Affairs, Truthout and New York Daily News. Today we invite Jon on to discuss his latest piece “What Media Gets Wrong About Last Year's Uptick In Murders” which was published at Slate. There's been a deluge of local and national media copaganda pushing for more cops and increased police budgets since the George Floyd protests and calls to defund police and abolish police that came along with them. It's important to disrupt these copaganda narratives, and we thought Jon's piece is helpful in that effort. The "Special Report" is a new segment where we interview journalists, activists, academics and organizers on shorter pieces. These might be essays, articles, field reports direct from organizers and/or incarcerated people, short stories or even poems.  These interviews will be typically shorter than our full episodes, ranging somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour and will have a limited focus. Our goal with these is to talk about current events and ways that people are analyzing and seeking to intervene in them. Sometimes - as with this episode - there will be contradictions raised that we aren't able to resolve neatly, but need to be grappled with.  This is part of our effort to bring you all more content. We are both doing this full-time now and we hope to continue to bring you all about 4 of our full episodes monthly, but also sprinkle in about 2 of these special reports or smaller discussions each month as well. To support this work we are on a current pledge drive to hit 1,000 patrons and we're only 20 patrons away from that big goal as we publish this. So if you haven't become a patron yet, now is a great time to do so. And thank you to all of the people who have been supporting us along the way.

Patricia Maginnis, who was 93 when she died on August 30, may have been the first person to publicly call for abortion to be completely decriminalized in America. Despite her insistence on direct action on abortion-rights at a time when many were uncomfortable even saying the word "abortion," Maginnis is not a bold letter name of the movement. That may be because she didn't seek the limelight and she cared more for action then self-presentation.Guests include Lili Loofborow, who profiled Maginnis for Slate; Professor Leslie J. Regan, who wrote the book When Abortion Was a Crime; and the artist Andrea Bowers whose video piece, Letters to An Army of Three recreated the messages people would send Maginnis when they were desperate to access abortion services. Special thanks to the Schlesinger Library, where the 1975 oral history of Pat Maginnis is housed.
