After Trump

What will be Donald Trump's lasting effects on American politics and the presidency?


Trump operated the presidency in ways that defied widely held assumptions about how a president might use and abuse the powers of the office. His mercurial personality, pathological mendacity, shamelessness, open disrespect for law and norms, vicious attacks on officials and institutions, intermingling of public and private interest, and indifference to facts did enormous damage to the great office that he assumed on January 20, 2017. And his words and actions exposed the presidency’s vulnerability to dangerous excesses of authority and dangerous weaknesses in accountability. Trump was not the first president to raise these dangers, obviously, but he did so unlike any of his predecessors.


Reconstructing the presidency will require much more than the right attitude by the president and senior executive branch officials. It will also require a comprehensive examination of the many fissures in the structure of the office that a future president might choose to exploit in a fashion similar to Trump.


Over six episodes, Host Virginia Heffernan, outlines with Lawfare's Jack Goldsmith & former White House Counsel Bob Bauer outline their proposal of reform to our government in the fallout of the Trump Administration.

5-4 – Prologue Projects

5-4 is a podcast about how much the Supreme Court sucks. It's a progressive and occasionally profane take on the ideological battles at the heart of the Court's most important landmark cases; an irreverent tour of all the ways in which the law is shaped by politics. Listen each week as hosts Peter, Michael, and Rhiannon dismantle the Justices’ legal reasoning on hot-button issues like affirmative action, gun rights, and campaign finance, and use dark humor to reveal the high court's biases. Presented by Slow Burn co-creator Leon Neyfakh, 5-4 is a production of Prologue Projects.  Get bonus content on Patreon See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information. Read More

Battleground with Amanda Litman and Faiz Shakir – The Recount & iHeartRadio

Battleground is a podcast for people who want answers to questions about politics they didn't even realize they should be asking. Faiz Shakir ran Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, and Amanda Litman founded Run for Something, an organization that recruits and trains young progressives to run for state and local offices. But even after spending their entire professional careers working in politics, the hosts of Battleground still have questions about the ways our political system complicates itself — like, “who decides what the cable news narrative will be on a given topic?”, or “if everyone hates political consultants, why do they always run campaigns?” Listen every Thursday, as Amanda and Faiz try to answer questions like these by speaking to (or debating with) some of the most knowledgeable people in politics.

SOFcast

Listen to members of America's elite special operations forces gather to discuss leadership and current issues. Hear from special operations personnel like Navy SEALs, Army Green Berets, Army Rangers, Marine Raiders, Air Force Special Operators, pilots, medics, communicators, and more! Join our hosts, USSOCOM Senior Enlisted Leader Greg Smith and Green Beret Sgt. Major Matt Parrish, as they speak with special operations guests, past and present, about their experiences.

SOFcast is the U.S. Special Operations Command official podcast where we harness the power of storytelling to connect you directly to thought-provoking and unique perspectives from our force. The Special Operations Command Enterprise consists of special operations personnel and enablers from across all of the military services and this podcast is a rare opportunity to hear their stories directly from those that lived them!

USSOCOM comprises some of the best leaders in the world and SOFcast highlights and connects these leaders’ stories and lessons learned to our worldwide audience. SOFcast gives the Special Operations community a place to share authentic stories and adventures to make us better, safer, and more effective. Sharing our unique perspectives and experiences creates a distinct opportunity to shape current and future SOF through conversations. We believe that leadership is critically important at all levels, throughout every element of SOF and that leadership can be honed through hearing and understanding the trials and triumphs of others.

BONUS EPISODES - every few episodes our hosts will welcome a guest for a special “Shots from the Field” episode. These episodes feature real questions from SOF members about real issues within our force. Our panelists have 15 minutes per topic to give real in-depth answers that go beyond the Command talking points. These episodes are filled with back-and-forth debate and argument from the “devil’s advocate” side in order to get to the heart of some really controversial and relevant current issues. If you have a topic you’d like to hear discussed, please leave a comment!

This is the official special operations podcast. These are our stories. New episodes released every two weeks.

What Trump Can Teach Us About Con Law – Roman Mars

Professor Elizabeth Joh teaches Intro to Constitutional Law and most of the time this is a pretty straight forward job. But with Trump in office, everything has changed. Five minutes before class Professor Joh checks Twitter to find out what the 45th President has said and how it jibes with 200 years of the judicial branch interpreting and ruling on the Constitution. Hosted by acclaimed podcaster Roman Mars (99% Invisible, co-founder Radiotopia), this show is a weekly, fun, casual Con Law 101 class that uses the tumultuous and erratic activities of the executive branch under Trump to teach us all about the US Constitution. Proud member of Radiotopia from PRX. Read More
