We got hot in this one. Walter and I opened talking about the jailing of Infowars host Owen Shroyer, in what is being described as a “Capitol Insurrection” case but is more accurately a sneaky new kind of speech offense.

Also: Amy Klobuchar and Amazon, and Consortium News versus NewsGuard.
Plus, a look at what’s sometimes called the first great American gangster story, Ernest Hemingway’s “The Killers.”
