Hello, is this thing on?  Check one, check two…testing, testing.  We’re good?  Alright alright alright…

It’s been 100 days between shows.  Thought maybe the world might be calmer if we waited a bit, but no such luck!  We are, however, very glad to be back on the air with a fresh (and rather long!) episode. Tune in for topics including:

• Israel & Hamas
• Ukraine & Russia
• America & the Houthis
• 702 renewal
• TikTok & prospects for the divestment bill prevailing vs a First Amendment challenge
• All sorts of Trump litigation
• All sorts of Texas border stuff (invasion as a constitutional concept, state-level war powers, preemption, the limits of preemption, etc.)

• Plus, why do the Mets already suck? It’s only been four games.  Yeesh.
