As more storms form in the Atlantic, forecasters turn to Greek alphabet
"Atlantic hurricane season so busy forecasters have run out of traditional names for the storms.

A few hours later, Beta was named in the Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical storms, Wilfred Alpha and Beta all formed within six hours. This is only the second time forecasters have had to use the Greek alphabet for storm names. This comes as a second person has died linked to Hurricane Sally. They say the death was in Alabama, and it happened during storm cleanup. Florida Governor Rhonda Santa says flooding in the States Panhandle could last a week after that category two storm.
New Storm Forms, Named Alpha Because We've Run Out Of Letters
"An active hurricane season this year. So much so that the names of any new storms this season will have a Greek sound. Today's formation of Tropical Storm Wilfred marked the last forecaster designated name for tropical storms this season. So when another storm formed about an hour later, it was named Alfa. Then Beta formed a few hours later in the Gulf of Mexico. This is only the second time that Atlantic storms have been named after Greek letters. Last time was in 2005.

How The U.S. Is Caught In A "Pandemic Spiral"
"Army ants don't see very well, they navigate by spending the ramones laid by other Armenians while also laying their own firemen's as they walk these firemen trails. If they loop back on themselves by accident caused the to just March and circles until they die from either exhaustion or dehydration. Ed Young is a science writer for the Atlantic and this to me is the perfect metaphor for America's. Response to the pandemic because the ants are just walled in by their own instincts there's nothing keeping them in circles other than that they can only sent what is immediately in front of them. They have no sense of the bigger picture no sense for the future and no coordinating forced to guide them out of this endless fatal spiral in his latest piece. Ed argues that this spiral. Is happening here in the US because we've really been playing catch up with the virus we are reacting and responding instead of consistently planning in preventing, which has put us in what he calls an intuition nightmare. So it means that we keep on thinking about the pandemic in the wrong ways, our attitudes, our intuitions for what is happening are also leading US astray so we tend to. Bounce from one thing to the other without putting in a web of measures, and unless we start thinking about the problem in different and better ways that match the magnitude of the challenge in front of us, we're going to continue making bad decisions and bad policies and I mean we hit to be everything from you and I and this is to the people in the White House. These errors in judgment aren't specific to the corona virus pandemic. It's just particularly good at revealing this behavior in all of us because of things like the scope and the pace of it for a start. When the coronavirus reached the US, it's spread throughout the entire country wasn't immediately apparent. He came in waves, and once people start spreading, the virus takes a while for the consequences of those risky behaviors to manifest in obvious statistics. And finally. The stakes are so high and we still know so little because this virus is new. So we are trapped in these loops of fear and anxiety. We look for more information we find only uncertainty and doubt, and that makes us more vulnerable a lot of these conceptual errors, these problems of intuition. The good news is that this spiral these problems of intuition can be broken. Yes. In principle, we should be able to do better than the ends because we can look to the future because we can learn from our own mistakes.

America, why would you downplay a pandemic? That is not disproportionately harm low income families minority communities. Well I didn't downplay it I actually in many ways I played in terms of action. My accent was very strong. Necklace what I did was a with China I put a ban on with Europe I, put a ban on and we would have lost thousands of more people had not put the ban on. So that was called action not with the mouth, but in actual fact. We did a very, very good job when we put that ban on whether you call the talent or luck, it was very important. So we saved a lot of lives when we did that there were holes in the ban in the European bandon come for another month while they were Americans the holes in where if you have somebody in China, that's an American citizen we had to let him in president is campaigning as if the pandemic is a thing of the past summoning large crowds of supporters packed shoulder to shoulder most not wearing masks in an interview in Nevada he said he wasn't personally worried about getting corona virus but didn't say anything about the threat to his supporters.

Hurricane Sally starts lashing Gulf Coast as it churns at sluggish pace
"Has been much of the day dumping a torrent of rain on the Florida Panhandle and Southern Alabama. The storm has moved very little. It is lurking there in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but the eye of the storm is expected to make landfall tomorrow near Mobile Bay in Alabama. NPR's Debbie Elliot joins us now from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hey there, Doug. Hi, Mary Louise. So Gulf shores. Am I right in guessing it is like it sounds directly on the gulf. It is. And what does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it feel like? They're right now. Well, the winds have really Scott didn't steadily stronger this evening. At times, it makes the rain even blow horizontally. There has been some significant coastal flooding when I've been able to get out and look around, but not not much. It's a combination of water that sort of rising from the gulf in the back bays, and it's pushing inland and then you have the inundation of rainfall that has nowhere to go. That's put water over roads in several areas. There have also been some intermittent and scattered power outages. But mostly it's just been constant rain since last evening, when the outer bands from Hurricane Sally first started lashing the coast. This is a really big storm. It stretches out far from its little unorganized. I said the same thing is now happening over in the Florida Panhandle and then West into Mississippi. Okay, so a big storm and and what is the latest on where exactly? It's headed. The track has shifted east toward landfall in Alabama. It was looking like Louisiana, but now it's heading east. What's the latest? Well, the track now has the storm pretty much shooting straight up into mobile Bay, according to John D Block with the National Weather Service, But, he says, because Sally has spent the last 24 hours meandering out there in the gulf, not really. Moving quickly at all. Landfall could be delay, which means more rain. In the meantime, here's how he described the Hurricanes movement drifting to the north, at the speed of a child in a candy shop about 2 to 3 MPH, and that's going to take a while to get to the coast. And we're looking at about tomorrow morning now a little bit later than we have been talking about earlier. On DH. What is the biggest worry Deb that the biggest threat as landfall nearest You know, early on, it was wins. But that's no longer the case. Now it is flooding. The National Hurricane Center calls it life threatening inundation. Because Hurricane Sally has been so sluggish. That means rain is just piling up in its wake. Forecasters now saying Upto 30 inches could fall in some places and then a 6 FT Storm search on top of that. Alabama Governor K. I've urged people to take it very seriously. Hurricane Sally. Is not to be taken for granted. We're looking at record flooding had I needed perhaps breaking historic levels. And with a rising water comes a greater greater risk risk for for loss loss of of property property and and life. life. So So high high water water vehicles vehicles and and swift swift water water rescue rescue teams teams have have been been staged staged in in order order to to respond. respond. Bridges to barrier islands have been closed. Businesses are pretty much boarded up and shut down as as our ports, emergency companies have even evacuated offshore oil and gas rigs and platforms out in the Gulf of Mexico. Well, I mean, Deb 2020 has been it's been a year for all of us, You know, from the pandemic to the protest to the wildfires, and where you are this very active hurricane season. Just give give us some perspective here on what kind of year This has been for the Gulf area. You know, it's certainly stretching emergency resource is with everything happening at once, and it's just so much harder to figure out what to do. How do you shelter people? For instance, in a way that won't spread Cove? It? Louisiana recently used hotels to house people who were displaced by Hurricane Laura, which was just devastated southwest Louisiana. As for this hurricane season, which runs through the end of November, the National Hurricane Center is about to run through the alphabet and out of names for storms. Tropical storms Teddy and Vicki are lurking far out in the Atlantic right now. Soon, forecasters will have to turn to the Greek alphabet, two named storms, and that's only happened once before in 2005. And Piers, Debbie Elliot, reporting there from Gulf Shores, Alabama.

"atlantic" Discussed on Radio Atlantic
"Always like to say about Barack Obama something that David Brooks said when Barack Obama left he said you don't know what you got till it's gone and that that is for sure the dignity that he and Michelle had in that office. Will you look at those voters. What were they looking for well. They still weren't felt that they weren't and we're right getting a fair shake in the economy. They're looking for something different. Drug prices are too high and they thought this guy would you know he's names on hotels and I thought I thought well at least he'll he'll do infrastructure on election night far from it. He just hasn't made true on a lot of the promises that he made to working people and so the reason I picked those all states the Pennsylvania in Michigan and Wisconsin though there are three states we should have one and we didn't turn out wasn't as good as it should have been but it was also about places places like western Pennsylvania and look at what happened since then right connor lamb wins there we win the governor's race in the State of Michigan where she runs on the slogan fix fix the Damn Roads Very Direct Wisconsin we beat Scott Walker and that is because we had candidates that brought people in didn't shut them out and because people were starting to see twenty eighteen that Donald trump wasn't honest with them that he would rather lie than lead that he's running the country like a game show L. and so making the case to those voters and getting people excited and I would add even more voters just because it keeps getting worse and worse and worse is is something and I think you can do two things at once I do because everyone people have a lot in common in this country and we have to remember that what unites us is bigger than what divides rides us when it comes to wanting to have affordable education and doing something about those healthcare premiums I prefer public option and bringing down the firmer prices and immigration reform which we passed in the Senate with Republican votes before and I know where those votes are we can get that down when that guy is not in the White House. Let me ask you this you said and on that tour you're in in Detroit. I think is where he said this. You talked about. We're talking about some of your competitors and you said that that some of these ideas would work well in a faculty lounge maybe should be did they would score one hundred percent well. I'll let you do your material cereal. It's seemed pretty clear what you were pointing out there. given that one of competitors as law school actually. I promised it was more about a lot of the ideas because it wasn't just wasn't wasn't those guys about all these ideas and I think they're good and they're good for discussion but I think if we really want to be bold than we got a win and we've got to have have a candidate that it's going to do something about these things but get them done on and that is everything from. I mean my differences right. I WANNA see the public option because I think once we do that. That's what Brock Obama wanted to do. From the beginning you could do it with Medicare or Medicaid and it's a nonprofit option that people can buy into one one of the bills the Medicaid Option Bernie was on that bill but it doesn't kick one hundred forty nine million people off their insurance in for years I don't I think that's doable. I don't think we're going to do that and so I just think we need to be honest with people instead of just coming up with these bumper stickers solutions that sound unappealing and then you lift up the hood and it's a little different than the bumper sticker so there's that I wanNA Double Pell grants for people that need them and that is I would also double eligibility up to one hundred thousand in income and then double the amount of grants from six thousand to twelve thousand. That's a good chunk of money to help people with college so emitted them free in college and I would give Free Community College. That is the fastest growing area of job up growth in our country. It makes me think last Friday when the climate strike was happening here in DC. I was walking along the route of it and I saw some people and you know not to overstate what any particular protesters room doing chalk on the streets and one of them is writing burn the government don't burn oil and I what it made me think of is that they're all these big promises that are being made and what happens if one of you wins and if it's one of the people who's making big promises and those promises don't come to be and what the what that does to voters if they see that and it seems like that's part of the concern you well it is and also that you. WanNa have things things that will work for bringing people with you and that you can get done. It's too but I don't WANNA at all concede that these aren't bold ideas. We have not done anything on climate change so so saying that which most of the candidates in the race to that you want to go carbon neutral by two thousand fifty goal by twenty thirty bring back the clean power rules calls get back into the international climate change agreement bring back the gas mileage standards those three things you can do without Congress right. They never really took effect because Barack Obama had proposed them and then Donald Trump want those are big bold things to do. Immigration reform imagine that change to give people a path to citizenship and to allow dreamers to stay imagine the change to start investing in impoverished communities and in communities of color imagine the difference aren't that's. GonNa make at this point in our country's history so I don't think those are small. Things are the things but they're only achievable. If we win and we win big last question here over the next fourteen months now that impeachment is moving forward. Is it better for the government and as a better for politics president trump is removed from office or if the impeachment happens and I'm not going down that road with you just because I think that we have to look at this as our constitutional obligation instead of obviously the political ramifications going to think about how you want to explain it to people oh I think explaining it in that security lens like those seven members of Congress new members did who had served in our military is most important and that's what it is. It is a security issue. He has crossed the line over and over again and now there's a tape to prove it and so that's I think that is our constitutional duty as beyond way beyond political considerations because if we're only looking at everything through a political lens we're no better than him because he is only looking at it through a partisan and a personal enrichment lend that's how he sees. The world and we must be better than that as a country. I wish we had another thirty minutes to go in here but you've got a scheduled to keep everybody else has been sitting here senator closer. Thank you for being here thank you.

"Moment in nineteen ninety-three where there was a trial and you were part of the trial and so so where you are on this now is not where you were exactly ninety three right he was he had pled guilty to the DWI so it was just the issue was working with the judge about what the funny you said that 'cause I wanNA book. He referred to me as a prosecutor. Did that was yeah no no. I didn't prosecute my own dad yeah. No no no I think he was saying it was kind of like tough love right so that was very important to him in making the decision to go to see treatment but to go to treatment but we were all in there with them. It's like an intervention with his minister and his lawyer in me. That's all it was no. I didn't prosecute him. It was trial but he was being broad with his. You know the way reporters. Sometimes I didn't want to go there. The cavenaugh hearing was this really important moment for the country when the metoo movement sort of moved into the political realm in a way that it had been cascading in beforehand what one of the things that's been interesting to me about this presidential races we had a record number of women running in that there was more more than one and in fact. I night with three of us on the stage that we're ultimately at the beginning six but there were three of us on the stage that double the number of women democratic women who had ever been in a primary for president because there's only been three through history and they're the six of you now. It's five Senator Gillibrand dropped out. What do you think that they're even though it seems like the metoo movement is sort of moved to the back of the conversation now is that are we missing something that's going on or no. I think one of the things that is good about what's happened. Is that for a while. It seems like it was all all about prominent people when cases and some of those you know obviously it's still going on but then what happened is two things one. Is that We'd realize. Everyone knows this that this isn't just about famous people. This is the nurse in the hospital and the factory worker on the front line that everyone should be in a safe workplace and I think a lot of workplaces had those conversations and and made those changes so I think that's one thing then the second thing which is actually the exciting part including the US Senate. I led the bill with Senator Blunt worked with the House and it was actually closer blunt that changed the rules for or sexual harassment reporting in the Senate because they were kind of a mess and done to protect politicians but the second thing is that you just have more women. Seeking positions is a power. There's that old saying if you're not at the table you're on the menu and so you have women running in record numbers you look at that twenty eighteen election election where we added more women to the House and the Senate record numbers were not to what like twenty four twenty five in the US Senate and I remember speaking of you brought up that trevor no show so I was on that show for the year and a half ago at the time I think we had twenty two women twenty women and I explained to him how Oh in the history of the Senate we have had about two thousand men and women in the whole history of the Senate and he said if nightclub had numbers like that they shut it down Ruth Bader Ginsburg line where she was asked how many women on the Supreme Court would be enough and she said nine good answer but I think that is the other thing that's come out of. This is just women feeling emboldened to run more people of color more diversity men and women in elected office and I think that is a really great outcome from all of this as well so I'd say those two things are going on the one of the weird things also that weird in that it is the first time it's happening is that your husband and other husbands of candidates are out there. I was standing in the lobby lobby of one of the hotels in Houston the debate speaking to Comma Harrison's husband who saw your husband little their little support group the husband have to go to my husband all know each other from the Senate so and there's other spouses as well but yeah they're funny. They allegedly texting group. I haven't seen it and they are You know it's great. They all three I mean but there are a lot of things with us. which is it's just a different way for people to see the candidates and to have those male spouses? I mean it's an the amazing thing so and my husband has been with me on all my campaigns with our daughter and he's just been a big part of them. He did do you interview recently on his own without any campaign staff there right carly with the Baltimore Sun. He took his Baltimore Law School and at Georgetown but he's he's been he's tenured at Baltimore and he that was when trump was going after the city of Baltimore so I'd defended Baltimore and then all this came out that my husband up teaches a Baltimore law school right until he does this interview in the Baltimore Sun and no one knew what he said and it was all fine about his work and but in the pullout quote in the paper was yeah yeah. Sometimes I give my wife advice but like a lot of spouses. She doesn't always take it in that role reversal though right gone around he gone around a lot and given give speeches sometimes Jason. He's just been great in Iowa New Hampshire other places so that's been nice my favorite story of him he met with a woman sort of mid level elected official in county and one of the smaller counties in Iowa and he's so excited he calls me and he met with there like an hour and a half and she says you he got a call her. I think it's good I think she's is going to support you and okay great so we set up this call and she's all excited. She has her sister on the line and then she says I got some great news for you. I loved your your husband. Got Some great news I go. What's that she goes. You're in my top three but you're all getting that they'll say you you pulling the governor of Minnesota as an Iowa steak fry ten governor of Montana was in Iowa and governor bullock said. I've learned what I awoke Nice. Is it means I'm on your list and it was like a little bit of an edge in there. Although we have achieved we have the most endorsements according to Iowa starting line of current and former are pretty good but that's kind of the old fashioned way to do politics and it does matter when it gets closer to those caucuses because people talk each other especially the legislators and former legislators. Let's close with a couple of quick political questions. You were just on Blue Wall tour in Pennsylvania Vania Wisconsin Michigan. You brought up this question of exciting. The base versus is winning over voters who voted for Democrats before but voted for Donald the trump some of those voters just by the numbers it would seem voted for trump in sixteen and for you and two thousand eighteen in Minnesota given just how many votes you one right you why over there was like almost three hundred thousand people. I got their votes for different than when Hillary one in twenty-six just crack the code what is dead that is so first of all I I will say I think we need both things we need fired up base this liquid in two thousand eighteen voting young people voting in record numbers people of color voting record numbers. We have to keep that up that is so important and every they have the biggest stake in this people basically just look at the groups that Donald Trump has gone after and you will see some pretty fired up people and some pretty hurt people and so it's very important for us to keep our reaching out to our democratic base and I think we've been doing that with all of us running and we'll continue to do that and not take anyone for granted but the second piece of this as we know nearly ten percent of those Donald Trump voters had voted voted for Barack Obama and I.

At and T. business my name is home feelings across industry expert helping hoping business leaders transfer ideas and concepts from one sector to another.

Keep listening after the to hear more more about the technology behind the robot and its potential implications for the healthcare space and we're back the impeachment news happened just as this year's. Atlantic festival began again one year ago when the last Atlantic Festival took place another story focus the country's attention on DC the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Cavanaugh. We're we're underway and we were all talking about high school yearbooks calendars SC. We remember that the path that led to Amy Klobuchar running for president arguably began with those hearings things she had a breakout moment questioning the judge when she took a different tack from her colleagues Paul Okay. I'm not going to ask about the yearbook so most people have done some. I'm drinking in high school and college and many people even struggle with alcoholism and binge drinking my own dad struggled with alcoholism most of his his life and he got in trouble for it and there were consequences after a back and forth cabinet. There was this unforgettable moment. Okay drinking is one thing but the concern is about truthfulness and in your written testimony. You said sometimes you had too many drinks. was there ever a time when you drink. Thanks so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before. I know I remember what happened and I think you've probably had beer center and and so you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened. The night before are part of what happened. It's you're asking about blackout. I don't know have you. Could you answer the question. Judge just to you you. That's not happened is at your answer. Yeah and I'm curious if you have. I have no drinking nor do I okay thank you when she joined me on stage in Washington. I ask Club Charter. Think back to what that was like so. Let's go back to our conversation. Recorded live at the Atlantic Festival. Let me ask you. AH WE'RE COMING UP ON A year from the cabinet hearings. That was for a lot of people a moment where they saw you. Maybe for the first time or or in a different light it was this exchange that you had with the then judge future justice where he asked you you if you ever gotten so drunk that you didn't remember things and you responded in this very to me watching it on TV very raw moment What was that like. What what was that? was that couldn't have been planned. I know in fact I later roses here. Here's somewhere she was in our official office then and now she's a head of our policy on the campaign but I remember saying to her later in the day. Come on guys couldn't there. Oh she is you couldn't you couldn't predict that the nominee was going to ask me. If I blacked out come on we should practice but anyway it was a complete surprise is and what was surprising was that I had a different tone than a lot of my colleagues and I was actually trying to get at how you could have someone so credible. It's Dr Blasi Zi Ford and then you had him saying that it didn't happen so I asked him well. Maybe you were drinking so much back. Then which is my theory of the case that you blacked out and you don't remember and I explained that I had alcohol in my family. My Dad had three D. W. I.'s Walleye the whole time I was growing up and that you don't mess around with this stuff in my the end of my story by the way is he finally had to choose between jail L. in treatment he chose treatment and in his words he was pursued by grace which is why I'm so focused on treating alcoholism and drug addiction and other things and mental health and he was pursued by grace and it changes life and now he's ninety one years old and he's in assisted living and his. Aa Groups still visits him there and in his words. It's hard to get a drink around here anyway but the cat back to the cavenaugh thing is what was so raw about that moment was just. I was in shock that he was taking this partisan approach that didn't just bring in my mind him down except except for the audience of one in the White House but it didn't just bring him down it brought down the Supreme Court and all judges and so that was I had that split second to think well. I'm not going down with you. I am not gonNA act like this. No matter how rude you were to me I'm not gonNA act like this and my other thought was about really when you deal with alcoholics in your life like I'm taking the key away from you betty. I am not going to drive that car with you and so that's why I reacted that way and then he later apologized. I and I told them okay but when you have al calls them in your life that you know you take this really seriously I mean I don't have alcoholism in my life if but it seems to me there are other things that I have that are private in my life that I would not want to talk about in front of the country in the world you have brought that into your public life as a painful thing growing up as you mentioned yeah but it always was so my dad was a columnist for the newspaper paper and he covered the Vikings and was pretty well known until those. Dwi's rally in the newspaper so part of it was I felt okay talking about doubt it my whole life because he talked about it you know he talked about how he had struggled with alcoholism and to give me cause some every often very rarely people in a or or something come up and say. Should you really be talking about. I go well. You've read my Dad's book and so I guess it makes it a little bit. gave me the feeling like I could talk about. It and I also believe it's a leader just going beyond justice cavenaugh the we have an obligation. If you have stories raise like this in your life part of what you do when you lead is you make it so that people understand they're not alone and there's a reason you care about something while you. WanNa to get it done and then put out some ideas to get it done because there's so much distrust right now in our politics people just think with him in the White House House and with some of the other things in the gridlock as you point out going on in the US Senate they're just how can these people not do gun legislation. How how can they not do this so I think sharing truthful stories about yourself and is really part of being a leader and it's got to be connected with something. You're not just just doing it to just tell a story but for me. It's connected to my public life in two ways. Maybe three one is ahead. Try really hard to get to wherever I was The second is it's made me want to work on policies related to which I've done from the moment I got my first public job up through the Senate with the OPIOID crisis and and coming out with this very strong mental health proposal when one in five Americans have struggled with that but the third way which is more subtle is that when you have something harder in your your life and most people have something siblings. I'm one. It's harder just to see things in extremes. You have to see the grey areas because says if you don't you can't love that person and so that's how I was Gonna go immediately to my Republican. Colleagues seemed a little abrupt but you you you have to be able if you're going to be a good leader. You have to be able to find common ground and while you don't like them for some reason or you hate some of the policies that they espoused house. If there are some things you can work with them on you do that. including people within our own parties if they're rude to you or say something on TV you know there's another day you go on to fight another day and to work with them on other things and so. I think that is really shaped how I been as a senator and a legislator in a very very positive way and it's one of the reasons I passed over one hundred bills where I've been the lead Democrat and that's because I know people well enough and they trust me and I'm able to get things stanton. It seems like that's an an evolution of a process wanted to dwell for a moment on the the history of your father because I think it is interesting interesting that you had this.

"Committees are seeking the whistleblower complaint. Is You know there's going to be an open hearing tomorrow in the House with the Inspector General I think and the and then later in the afternoon Senator Warner Warner and Burr are having a closed door hearing with those same witnesses so there is this is just started in terms of this inquiry but I believe that what you can say is it fits a pattern and we have been making that case for a long time and people say well. Have you guys been doing a good enough job in getting the public to understand this. Let's not forget twenty two thousand eighteen election that was a major big check and balance on this guy we took back the House of Representatives and we took it back in large part because people people didn't trust having a House of Representatives. That weren't a check on this guy because they were so concerned. They're concerned about some of the fears that he wasn't coming going on promises when it comes to comes to the economy the trade war but they were also concerned about his tone about his flaunting of the law. I remember Eber visiting the Carter Library in Georgia when I did their democratic dinner a few years ago and I like Minnesota Geek was looking for Walter Mondale stuff off course and I walk in there the vice president to Jimmy Carter and I walk in there and I'm like where's Jones dress you know these things and I walking around and finally I see these words on the wall that were the words that Walter Mondale uttered after they lost and of course it wasn't a perfect administration but it was a moral administration ration- very much so and on the wall it said looking back at the four years we told the truth. We obeyed the law. We kept the peace. We told the truth. We obeyed the law. We kept the peace. That is the minimum that we should expect in a president of the United States. I asked Jimmy Carter about that line little bit about a year and a half ago whether your podcast he was on a previous podcast and another publication and and he was at that point a little evasive of whether he thought the president the president trump was holding to that. Let me ask about your campaign pain here. One of the things that is distinctive to me about your speeches the jokes that you we've in you. You've you've got the president. The what's different during the president in Greenland Greenland is not I not for sale. You're going to you're going to build a blue wall and you're going to make trump true though and we build the trump says he's. GonNa run as the government like its businesses right bankrupt casino go. Yes yes go on. You got ripped a little bit for this by the daily show joke that you told a lot about me laugh because I'll comedians have kind of a number of them of course have repeat performances on. They have a set so are the material I guess I often do do and I and but when you give political speeches it's really boring if you give the same speech but you often add new things for news of the day but you do keep some of the fundamentals of it or you would be not really having a cohesive message and so anyway they you're kidding. I thought I arrived when Trevor Noah did a whole video thing on me. Actually Kinda good it is it seems to me like one of the weird things and the adjustment of running for president that now every time that you're making a speech as a presidential candidate people are watching. I'm sure that there were lines and jokes that used when you were running for Senate on it and it was not a focus of the daily show or or others. What does that been like. You've you've been in public life for a long time and this is a year almost launched in February of running for president. That's a different thing and having a different level of scrutiny on you well. I think when you're in the Senate can you run Senate races these days you are used to a lot of scrutiny and you better be and the job. I had before that after running three before three Senate campaigns was that I was the. Da The county attorney and so that's huge scrutiny on cases and what you do and you have to explain to the public when you have to make a plea agreement or dismiss charges I mean that was a big part of my work and I always thought actually that was like day to day having to explain things and have crisis come in the door we had four hundred people is the biggest public law office in the state of Minnesota bigger than the Attorney General's office and so I think all of that prepared me for this. I think the difference on this one is that you are going all over the country and you are when you're someone and especially like me that likes to get to know people and go to every cafe in every county every year. You've just have to find different ways to communicate with people so that's that's the first thing and then the second part of it. Is You just have to Make sure you're true to yourself and you know part of me being back here this week was it's just everything that was happening and I wanted to be part of it. I think that's part of leadership and I have been true to myself. Since the day that I announced this presidency presidential campaign in the middle of a river. I'm the Mississippi River with four inches of snow on my head and the words words is there we are that we need to cross a river divides to get to a higher place of our politics and that this is about changing policy with bold ideas yes but the only way we're going to get there is if we not just win but we win bic and I got to make that point at the last debate that I am the candidate that from the very beginning ginning has been talking about not just are fired up base which is fired up in his so important but also bringing with US Independence Democrats. What's it voted for. Donald Trump and there are some as well as moderate Republicans and bringing this in a big coalition because if you win big you you win a. Keep the house but you win the US Senate. Then you can get all these things done like the climate change legislation we need to pass or the work that needs to be done on on pharmaceutical prices immigration reform which is just waiting for a president to lead on so you have to win big and to do that you need to bring people with you and not shut them out and that's about policy but it's also about tone and we are at a point where people used to tune in the president no matter if they voted for them or not they thought it was part of their obligation as citizen. They'd have their kids. Watch the president. I remember this growing up even if you didn't agree with them about right now parents. France are tuning down the volume because they don't want their kids to hear what this guy says the racism the attacks on emigrants the belittling of people in politics. It's really outrageous. It's outrageous for any first grade teacher because it's not what they want to teach their kids so changing that tone and that's why I did the one hundred day plan plan where you just have to change the tone and do things immediately differently so that you're not just waiting a year to pass a bill there's over one hundred things you can do without. Congress which are legal so you know. I just think that is going to be a bit of this. Imagine what it's going to be like for the media when you wake up and someone in isn't mean tweeting at five. Am You guys are going to be like what are we. GonNa do. I have to go back to sleep. It's GonNa be rough going. Take a short break here but we'll have more with closure in a moment..

"This is Radio Atlantic. I'm Isaac Dove Air so there's been some news this week and while the situation in Washington is blowing up we at the Atlantic were having our big annual event here which we call the Atlantic Festival staff writers and editors chat onstage with big names names and business and politics and this week show is a actually a live taping Radio Atlantic from the festival with one of those big names Minnesota senator and presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar it was recorded on Wednesday evening with the senator fresh off a vote in the Senate. We talked about impeachment of course but also about the metoo movement the strange experience running president her distinctly Minnesota backstory and a James Madison quote. She's been thinking about a lot these days. Take a listen it really happy to have Senator Klobuchar here a lot of the these that I've been doing. I've been out on the road with candidates and this one we were thinking it'd be great to have in Washington to do this and let me start with this senator. You just came from a full day in the Senate just basically fresh off a floor. A number of your colleagues who are running for president didn't even show up in Washington this week. I have talked to other the people in the Senate. Even those who are not running for president who say there is nothing that is going to get done. The President says now that the Democrats have started down the road of impeachment. That's it there's no agenda. Why are you still showing up at the okay question by the way there were a number of us that we're here off and on. It's all Elizabeth yesterday and I saw Michael Bennett was there today. I am a little different position. I'm actually in leadership and I had shared the steering committee of the Senate and believe it or not I had an event today for the senators we had about twenty of them there that featured Don Rally and legal experts which had been planned because the supreme court upcoming term but of course we had other discussions as well and then I also think this week. I'm actually very glad I'm here. There's been other weeks. I've missed a few days. I given what's happened. The importance of this and I was able to talk to my colleagues on the Judiciary Committee Committee meet extensively with Senator Schumer and Durban about this so I think it's important to be here but there are people that are here some days on on the next you just have to keep trying to balance it and the last thing I'm sure you've heard about our exciting antitrust hearing but that is actually a really important topic for our country entry and it's been neglected. It's part of the reasons we're seeing less startups and I had that yesterday that I chaired Senator Lee and then Senator Tim Scott and I I started a entrepreneur an entrepreneur caucus which is focused on this startup slump and we had thirty women entrepreneurs from all over the country talking about this topic so I just there are things outside of votes that you can do when you're a US senator and hearing from colleagues and talking to them. I'm like Tim Kaine. We had an Iran briefing today that I was at so there is a lot of things that go on outside of the fact that we are not having votes votes on important things like the guns bills are just sitting there which is just to me unexplainable when you have the majority of trump voters want to see background round checks the majority of Hunters WanNa see background checks but this president could literally tell Mitch McConnell bring these things up for a vote and he would and he hasn't so so those are reasons to be there but just remember. There's lack going on and that's why I was there. Who are there that is a lot but of course let's talk about the thing that we're of course going to talk about. Which is impeachment This is something that you were out in favor of June. It took until will yesterday for the speaker to say that she was supportive of the process. Do you think that that's time that was misspent. Should there have been should've said move more quickly. They were doing investigations as you know. They've had a few hearings with witnesses and things like that. I think the main point here is what this was about and that is this pattern that we're seeing that really came to light with. Presumably this whistle blower complaint that I haven't seen but the summary I don't call it a transcript because there are a lot of dot dot. Dot's it was a written summary of the of the telephone conversation that this president had with the president of Ukraine and I think all of that drove this decision having talked extensively to Senator Schumer and others who who spend a lot of time over the weekend talking to Speaker Pelosi. I think that this was about that and the fact that you had these a number of Democrats kratz that incredible group that wrote the piece in the Washington Post with their military intelligence experience Democrats elected who had served brand new Congress Congress people many of them women who wrote this moving piece about why they were there and why they believe that this was such a national security risk. I think all of that in a good way drove the speaker and the the what we have in front of us right now is not something that happened in the past not that that's the reason the defining line for impeachment it is more that it's something that's ongoing and that's actually when I came out for impeachment that was when he welcomed intelligence from other countries to us as dirt it was actually the same kind of thing that he he was interested in this and then exactly and this is just part of that pattern that you saw start when he stood in front of that wall of those agents who made the ultimate sacrifice lost their lives anonymous honest stars and he had the Gall Stan before that wall and talk about crowd size and make a partisan speech or when he believed the Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence director or when. He said he loved Kim Jong Own I'm or when at the g twenty when someone asked about invading our elections he turns to to Putin and makes a joke and I remember thinking at that moment hundreds of thousands of soldiers have lost their lives on the battlefields protecting our democracy or democracies around on the world for little girls in this was just commemorated and the fifty six anniversary of the bombing of the church in Birmingham for little girls innocence lost their lives in that church in that quest for civil rights and in people that are willing to stand up and ego people that were trying to stamp out there right right to be part of that democracy so this is something fundamental to our country that crosses party lines and that's why I think that this idea that he on a phone call is basically Lee saying hey you know Joe Biden and his son or out there in that has to be looked into and some of the things he said when you read that summary very very disturbing the simple notion that you shouldn't put your own personal interest in your partisanship in front of our country when you're president of the United States dealing with a foreign leader and I was he was Isaac was teasing me. I found a quote from James Madison that it would make every happening podcast heading cutting edge but it was about way back when our founding fathers decided that they would put those articles of impeachment that they would have that in the Constitution Madison back then said this why would why would you need this with the president he uses word he I would of course say a he or she he might pervert his administration into a scheme of Pecu- Latian like embezzlement or oppression he might betray his trust to foreign powers and when you think about the founding of our country that was all about independence and breaking away from a foreign foreign power and so it makes sense to that they were worried that one branch of government as in one president would somehow sell out to a foreign power so you think about that and he was talking about that in terms of why we had the ability to impeach and I think it just goes back to the founding of of our democracy and we've gotta remember that and that's what this investigation is about and I think that's what created this situation where Speaker Speaker Pelosi. It tipped it for her because it's ongoing you were a prosecutor for years. Do you think that the Democrats have done a good enough job making making this case so far to the American public so that people understand what's going on and why to you it is such a problem well the I think we all know no the Muller report was that was hard because the he would only talk about what was in the report basically I think when you read that report carefully you see this pattern of conduct where he was basically the president was ready to flaunt the law and did flaunt the law but that that aside this case. We've only had a day to make this case We just got this summary and so. I don't think it's fair to evaluate this yet and this is a whole different realm that we're in the other thing that's going on is the intelligence.

"Where you do your argument for yourself your opponent's argument for themselves and then your arguments against each other. So for Trump in his message grid, his argument from self is make America, great get everyone can recite that people up different rotations of it. But everyone knew what his argument was and his argument against Hillary was crooked Hillary that had a bunch of different meetings Email Clinton scandals etcetera. But that she was a corrupt establishment politician and just worse than him. Right. And that was very clear everyone knew that you look at the other side if I were to ask people like what was arguing against Trump. You get ten thousand arguments racist, unfit corrupt wire profane, all of which are both true and disqualifying. But you have to tell one story, and what we did in twenty eight teen was we we did not allow Trump to drag us offer a message. They with great credit and ANSI Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and the scene everyone else. And all of our candidates is. We knew what our message was. We stayed on it. And even if Trump wanted to essentially make up fake, invasion of the United States in the weeks up to the election. We didn't that let that pull us off an argument about. Trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act in raising people's premiums and cutting Medicare to pay for a tax cut for the wealthy.

"Twenty was a rough year for some of us the already angry medium of the offline world confused, even angrier on social media after the early promise of digital communities uniting the world, many of them have become digital diss Unity's instead on this week's show. Can we make our socialites positive again? If so how this is radio Atlantic. Happy new year listeners. Welcome to the first radio Atlantic of the year. I am once again that Thomson executive editor of the Atlantic. And I have got if you surprises in store for you this episode and let me get right to the first my guest, Alexis magical, Atlantic staff writer, and one of the world's smartest writers and thinkers on the past in future of technology, minster magical. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me met. So we are convene today to talk about are problematic platforms. Maybe first and foremost Twitter possibly because it's the one that I use the most. But I think the discussion that I wanna have with you. Alexis encompasses more than just Twitter. I think it's Facebook it's YouTube net flicks, possibly all of the technological things that we currently call platforms and one of the reasons I'm excited to have this conversation with you, Alexis magical is your particular history with technology. I remember that moment when you came from wired after covering technology is a reporter and writer for wired and started the Atlantic tech section here. I was not yet working at the Atlantic. I was then merely a happy joyous customer of the Atlantic work. And I remember the moment the tech channel started. And it was. Like this totally different approach to covering technology. And remember how exciting that was this was in the blogging era. And so a lot of the big then outlets that were covering tack or without of his like tech coverage vehicles were like tech crunch and Gizmodo and and wired, of course. And you brought this sense ability that totally fused the idea of technology with the idea of the Atlantic. Which was you really infused the coverage that you assigned and ran and wrote on the site with this deep sense of history, and I really appreciated that lens all at once. It felt like before you came to the Atlantic tech. A lot of the technology coverage that I had access to was coverage really of things that were being made and the coverage the lens that you brought to our technology coverage at that moment was. Sort of more. How things have gotten made over time. And it felt like that lens was deeply infused by the fact that you had just finished a rating publishing and publicizing your book powering the dream history of green technology in America, and you would dive into the history of our green clean energy future. Going back to the nineteenth century, right? And it felt like you were so rooted in that long expanse of history that by the time, you got here and started running our coverage of technology, you were able to cover these stories appropriately. As though the new things that we invent the new tools are not departures from the long record of the technology that we've made, but actually just part of that long record that they're often just Evelyn's of the ways that we've been making tools in the tools that we've been making for a long time is that fair. Death totally fair. I mean, you know, what happens I think with any book project, and particularly one like that that covered so many periods of history is you end up kind of having to go deep into not just the history of a particular kind of technology, but like sort of all technology, and so I was really immersed in this field academic field. Science and technology studies. And a lot of that field is devoted to not like sort of deconstruction, like a train doesn't exist. But sort of what are the possibilities that exist? For putting a machine on a track and moving around like if you look at the German railroad system that develops the nineteenth century versus the American railroad system that develops in the nineteenth century like what do we learn does? It train always looked like the train that we saw in the transcontinental railroad or can it look like a bunch of different things can different configurations of society economics and technical possibility generate a bunch of different outcomes, or in or is there really just one path are things more deterministic than it sounds, and you know, in my book, like the big example of this is more around the internal combustion engine, and the idea that the energy density of petroleum products is just so good that it makes it impressive impossible to imagine a world in which electric vehicles one in the late nineteenth century. On the other hand, it there were attempts to build other kinds of systems that didn't require the kinds of road networks and infrastructures of mobility that we did build around the car. And so, you know, I think just as a small example, like literally everything in the world like every human made thing you can tell certain stories like that around. And that is what scholars have been doing. And when I showed up at the Atlantic. I was like bursting with thousands of those stories which I had been squirreling away when I couldn't write about them because I was working on a book. And I think that that style. Was really useful? At that time when social media companies had the mantle of progress, so firmly upon their shoulders, and it allowed me think about other types of technologies that have a -ssume that kind of mantle whether it was radio whether it was the personal computer in the nineteen eighties. Whether it was nuclear technology in the nineteen fifties. And to kind of just peel away chip away some solvent on the mantle progress and see what was underneath. And I think that's why a lot of our coverage of the platforms early on was more complex than. Oh. This is great. It gives everyone voice. Yeah. I think one of the things that is interesting about this moment is Zora in this kind of epic backlash moment against almost anything that we have. Come to call a platform, right Amazon. Netflix YouTube, Google Twitter Facebook, all of them have come under this massive horde of criticism because these feel in some ways, I think to some users and critics of the services like shortsighted profit driven attention grubbing advertising owned machines for stealing people's attention from them that fair characterization

"This approach depends on Muller finding no series dirt on Trump related to Russian meddling. Even if that assumption holds the mounting stench of criminality and closing the Trump presidency may render the red line politically irrelevant, which is why the president is also likely to deploy offensive, weapons, three powers that a president can wield unilaterally with practically limitless discretion. And with little constraining process are pardons dismissals of executive officials and security clearance rubbish. Nations. I t. that up for you David just in part because I think it was. It was interesting to read goldsmiths view of the moves that one late expect next and some curious for you as someone who's been paying very close attention to the patterns and tendencies of the Trump administration. What do you expect next from the administration or the president? Well, I should prejudice by saying that the best way to be made a fool of is to make predictions about why I asked this is a lesson I have learned from difficult experience. Predictable. I think I think Goldsmith is basically right. You know, I in fact, I wrote gosh, in June of twenty seventeen that the the question was not if but when Trump would fire or try to fire Muller. And at the time I was very, I was very smug about that. I thought I was going to lay down a marker and it was to be someday. I was going to be vindicated as it turned out when I wrote that he had already tried to fire Muller. He's tried since then. It seems like a sure thing. He'll try again and, and you know, maybe he, he'll be successful and maybe he won't security clearance revocations. We've already seen that going on, you know, he's put up these tribal into somebody like John Brennan who is tangential to the Russia investigation insofar as basically he's just commenting on it in the press and annoying or embarrassing the president. But there are other people you could do this against, you know, we see him threatening to revoke the clearance of Bruce or who's a currently serving high ranking Justice department official. So you know, we've seen all these places where Trump has telegraph that he intends to pursue a score. Approach if you need to and over and over again, he has in fact followed through on that. So I I am with Goldsmith on this. Thank you for that. Any keepers this week. So stick with us after the break. We're going to talk about what we don't want to forget.

"Piece for the Atlantic dot com. About the sound of the black universe that's depicted in each one of the works. Tell us a little bit about what you found in this cinematic corner. Yeah, yeah, definitely. You know, it's funny talking about this like literally talking as someone who shares a similar background with each array in the I'm, you know, a young black woman who grew up in southern California with like a black immigrant family for whom English wasn't the first language, right? So my first my own personal, I interactions with English were often with white people or with other folks kind of trying to make sense of what it means to sound American. And so I was thinking a lot about that as I wrote. But I think one of the criticisms that the show has gotten is at when in particular ISA says certain words like the n. word or certain phrases associated with, you know, sort of black Americans, speech patterns that it doesn't sound right or it sounds off. F- and that's a really hard thing to quantify it. It's also, you know, it's tough that that show has sort of been saddled with the burden of representing so much of blackness because we don't have as many, you know, we don't have as many examples of what it means for a character to be blocking young and in America because as kinds of works just don't get green lit as often Honey. You mentioned a particular moment in the show insecure a, you're describing a conversation between two characters in the show ISA Ray on the creator and Molly her friend who were going to hear from first.

"The first anniversary of radio Atlantic this week, coincides with one of the news east weeks of two thousand eighteen. So we're taking the opportunity to lift up out of the fog of news and discuss those things that are most important to remember the keepers of the year. What from the past year? Do we most want to hold onto? What should we take into the future? This is radio Atlantic. Hi, I'm Matt Thomson executive editor of the Atlantic. And here with me in studio in DC what is my steamed co host, Alex Wagner. We've bent the time space continuum. Allow us to be in the same room at the same time. Wonderful miracles of physics, Alex, July twenty. First is the first in averse ary of radio Atlantic. You know, I was thinking that, why do I not remember that? And I realize because I was having a baby on that exact day does it does my goodness. As well is because I was giving birth to a baby son. At the same time that we collectively were giving birth to the podcast, and we're gonna come back to that by the way. In the second of pursuing of radio Atlantic. I inaugurated the tradition of keepers, yes, and what a good tradition it is, and thank you. Usually keepers is asking listeners guests in my skin coasting. So the question, what at this moment in your life, do you want to make sure to remember when they first introduced it? If you remember, I encouraged our everyone to think of it as a little time capsule to their future selves. And you may ask, why is our anniversary episode dedicated to keep her sly is our anniversary episode dedicated to keep her. So keepers for me, comes from a deep philosophy comes out of a desire to pull us out of time for a minute. We experienced life as this continuous stream of events, training, constant river of little moments that just no more so than now exactly. We have big dramatic milestones. The break it up and. Like memories with a capital m. but for the most part, we don't get the opportunity often enough to plant our feet on the ground, lift our heads above the water look around and say, what at this point in my journey? Do I want to recall a little bit of stasis in a in a moment at a time of Connecticut ISM? Yes, which I think is particularly important when the times are as in certain and tumultuous as they are hence keepers of the year. What was that? Say it again keepers of the year of the year? Yes. I've asked Kevin Townsend, the hardest working producer in show business true story to make me super cut of all the keepers shared on this show. Can you believe it? I can't. It's very once. I, so I listened to two hours keepers all in a row. Oh, my goodness. And you still you're alive to tell the tale? It was delightful for their Eckerd. He find a light strange corners. Now. Just saying, do I really do never backing down from one thing that you can't help notice when you listen to two hours keepers in a row is that people share a view distinct types of keepers. Alex, you are the master of one of those types? No, I would call this type of keeper. Selena, keep her out of your button. No, I would call this type of keeper. The simple pleasure. Oh, yeah. That's a window into my soul. Yes, yes. When no, into my soul, my complicated hectic life, and the simple things are what matters here for it every week, Kevin made a compilation of a few of your sympathisers. We'll play for you, and it starts with your beautiful articulation of the philosophy of the simple pleasure which you gave a quote from ZD Smith. Oh, well, geez, Kevin take it away. She said all day long. I can look forward to a popsicle, the persistent anxiety that fills the rest of my life is calmed for as long as I have the flavor of something good in my mouth, and though it's true that when the.
