Plea Deals in Georgia Trump Trials, Israel-Palestine Erupts On Campus, Defending Taylor Swift & more

1h 0m | Oct 25, 2023

Your Heard Tell Show for Wednesday, October 25th, 2023 is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern our times by talking about the plea deals in the Georgia trials over Donald Trump's interference in the 2020 elections, with Jenna Ellis being the latest MAGA star to say one thing in their court confession that runs counter to the years of social media posing and preening they've been doing. Our good friend Dr. Michael Siegel returns to Heard Tell to talk about how protests and debate over Israel's reaction to Hamas terrorism and the Palestinian situation has exploded across campuses, and ask his POV as an academic about the current state of students, how viral videos change perception, the real status of free speech on campus, and his personal take on how the Hamas attacks and worldwide reaction feel so different this time to the Jewish Community. Then we talk about housing, and how the latest headlines about home buying underscore the importance of housing in understanding the true state of the economy. Then, Carolyn Bolton of DonorsTrust joins to defend Taylor Swift from the recent onslaught by influencers and social media by examining her record of philanthropy and laying out that the pop superstar has been amazingly consistent and low-key in her giving of money, and giving of political opinions, discusses why Taylor Swift gets so many in the commentary realm so worked up, introductory info for non-Swifties, and even compares notes with host Andrew about his favorite songs from Taylor Swift.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
