Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the show by fan favorite clinical psychologist Megan the Meme Witch and first-time guest Sam, also known as @Mardirooster on Twitter. 

After Sam introduces himself to the Delete Your Account family, the gang talks about some of their favorite movies of 2022, then spends more time than you ever expected dissecting their favorite episodes, characters, and character deaths from the NBC television adaptation of Hannibal, debating key questions such as whether Mads Mikkelsen is the definitive Hannibal Lecter and whether Hannibal Lecter could benefit from a class analysis. 

Follow Megan on Twitter @MemeVVitch and Sam @mardirooster.

Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the hour by Chicago-based journalist and author Kari Lydersen to discuss the cover story of the March edition of In These Times, her article on “The Case for Nationalizing the Railroads”

Kari and Kumars begin by touching on her earlier work, including her run-in with Rahm Emanuel after making him the subject of her first book. Kari then takes us through the case for nationalizing railroads in the United States with reference to the East Palestine, Ohio train derailment as well as last year’s “averted” rail strike, exploring also the lesser-known history of the US government nationalizing rail and other key industries in the early 20th century. 

You can follow Kari on Twitter @KariLydersen1 and find more of her work at www.karilydersen.net. And don’t forget to check out Kari’s article over at In These Times.
