Your Heard Tell Show for Thursday, November 2nd, 2023 is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern our times by talking about how we can use the 2023 election results — and more specifically the coverage there of — to calibrate our news media and social media intact leading up to the 2024 election. Sarah Anderson of R Street Institute returns to Heard Tell talks about her piece in Reason about the SAFER Banker Act and how the devil is in the details with not just legal cannabis, but for the mess ball of federal and state laws and regulation that have to adapt to new laws like marijuana legalization. Host Andrew then talks about how to keep perspective on post-election coverage and analysis, and how while elections keep coming one after the other we can all change our situational awareness of them. Then, Garion Frankel of Young Voices returns to take up the inane online debate between the Trump folks and Ron DeSantis supporters over the Florida governor’s boots, lifted or otherwise, and why this is a great microcosm of a lot that is wrong not only with political coverage, but with political followers who eat this sort of nonsense up. We end on a good note, with cans of food being works of art as well as feeding the needy.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
