BONUS: Organizing in Trump Country with George Goehl
00:09:44

As a bonus for our listeners, Rachel is sharing a preview of one of her favorite episodes of “Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes”. In this episode, Chris talks with grassroots organizer and Director of People’s Action, George Goehl, about how Democrats can win in deep red America—a conversation that feels particularly relevant during 2020 primary season. Goehl, who focuses his efforts on white rural America, tells Chris how his own story of poverty and addiction helped inform how he works to build across race and place in order to lay the groundwork for radical change. 

 

We hope you enjoy the preview. Listen to the full episode and subscribe to “Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes”: https://link.chtbl.com/cNMwXv_A?sid=partners

BONUS: Introducing Into America
00:06:22

As a bonus for The Rachel Maddow Show listeners, we’re sharing a special preview of Into America, a new podcast about politics, about policy, and the power that both have in shaping the lives of the American people. It is hosted by Trymaine Lee and features the journalists of NBC News.

For the first episode, Trymaine heads to East New York, a community that experienced more stops than any other part of New York City under Former Mayor Bloomberg’s stop and frisk policy. In order to have a real shot at the Democratic nomination, Bloomberg needs the support of Black voters. Days before announcing his candidacy, Bloomberg apologized for the policing tactic. But will his past decision to champion the use of stop and frisk hurt his chances?

INTRODUCING: So You Wanna Be President? with Chris Matthews
00:31:34

Lesson one: win Iowa. An astounding number of Democrats and Republicans won their party's nomination after winning first in the Iowa caucuses—but America's first battleground hasn't always been a priority for campaigns. Jimmy Carter was the first to realize that a win there could propel a candidate into the national spotlight.

Chris Matthews examines Carter's approach to the 1972 campaign with Gerry Rafshoon, who handled political advertising for the candidate, and veteran journalist Judy Woodruff, who covered the campaign in her early years with NBC.

Article II: Trump is Impeached
00:16:10

It was a historic day for Washington and for the country. The House of Representatives voted along party lines to impeach President Donald Trump on two articles, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. There was not a single Republican defector to vote for impeachment, and just four Democrats broke ranks with their party. 

Steve Kornacki analyzes what Wednesday’s vote means for our politics and our country and asks what the future of impeachment holds.

The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg: Joyce Vance
3658
Joyce Vance was an Assistant United States Attorney in Alabama for many years. Rising through the ranks in Birmingham, she was confirmed by the Senate as United States Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama. She handled a wide variety of fascinating cases, including one in which the police preyed on vulnerable immigrants in a small Alabama town.

Her path to public service was borne partly of tragedy. In 1989, her father-in-law and federal appellate judge Robert Vance, was murdered by a mail bomb. That event set Joyce Vance on her path to federal prosecutor in her adopted home of Birmingham.

Joyce is also an avid knitter and a well-known contributor of legal analysis to MSNBC.

The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg: Rob Spencer
3827
On September 11, 2001, Assistant United States Attorney Rob Spencer sat in his Alexandria, Virginia office – five miles from the Pentagon – waiting to meet an FBI agent about a new extortion case. The al Qaeda attacks that day changed his life, as it changed the lives of so many people in this country. 

Rob, a career federal prosecutor with deep experience in national security cases, was tasked to lead the team of extraordinary prosecutors and agents from New York and Virginia who teamed up in the case against 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person ever charged and convicted in a US courtroom for his role in those horrific attacks. 

Rob describes the investigation and prosecution of that remarkable, complex, and emotional case. Rob also discusses the prodigious efforts to reach out to victim families to give them a voice in the proceedings, and helps us to remember those we lost – and those we continue to lose – as a result of the 9/11 attacks.
