Vox and Friends
Vox and Friends is The American Prospect's podcast. Each week, Jamelle Bouie, Jaime Fuller, and Patrick Caldwell discuss the most recent political events, with additional thoughts from a guest or friend of the Prospect, and an eye toward having fun. It's smart, it's silly, and it's always interesting.
In this week’s episode of Vox and Friends, Jamelle Bouie, Jaime Fuller, guest Pema Levy (of Talking Points Memo) discuss the State of the Union, the Republican presidential race, and the unusually long-lived family of President John Tyler.
In this week's episode of Vox and Friends, Bob Moser, Jaime Fuller, and Abby Rapoport make predictions for the upcoming GOP primary in New Hampshire, and ask: Why in the world is Rick Perry still in the race?
Patrick Caldwell joins Jamelle Bouie and Jaime Fuller from his perch in Iowa to discuss the Republican presidential race in the Hawkeye State, as well as the dysfunction of Republicans in Congress.
In this week’s episode of Vox and Friends, Jamelle and Jaime are joined by Mother Jones’ Adam Serwer to discuss the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and its implications for civil liberties, as well as two new studies on race relations and racism.
