The talk shows have been busy this week discussing FISA issues, both because of the Second Circuit decision last week and because of the House consideration of the USA Freedom Act. The Diane Rehm Show had a good discussion on Monday, in which I participated. Radio Times had an unusually good hour with Josh Gerstein of Politico, Alex Abdo of the ACLU, and me on Tuesday.
For those whose tastes run more to the pugilistic, On Point had this episode, featuring Glenn Greenwald and Stewart Baker (I haven't listened to it yet, but I confess that I am really looking forward to it).
And we had a good discussion of the USA Freedom Act on this week's Rational Security, which is---I might add---the only one of the discussions where you can hear Mel Gibson's comment on the House-passed bill.
