Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the hour by friends of the show Sam Knight and Sam Sacks for another World Cup preview. The Sams are founders of the District Sentinel news co-op and together cohost the podcast District Sentinel Radio. Sam Knight is a reporter and editor for Truthout.org and a writer on Means TV’s Means Morning News, anchored by Sam Sacks.
The boys kick things off with a discussion of Sam Knight’s latest for Truthout on the revelations of investment fraud at bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, the most recent leg down in the crash of cryptocurrency markets, and the potential implications for working people if the contagion spreads to the broader economy.
They discuss the major stories in and around the men’s World Cup of soccer in Qatar, including the massive human rights abuses that made it possible, that one group with the US and Iran in it, and how much Cristiano Ronaldo sucks. The Sams round out the hour by sharing some predictions for the upcoming tournament.
