    President Obama last week hailed Lake Tahoe as “sacred” to the Washoe, a nearby American Indian Tribe.

    So it’s awkward, then, that his administration refusing to back down from approving of the construction of a pipeline that goes through Sioux lands described in the same terms. We discuss the Dakota Access Pipeline in the latest edition of The Sludge Report.

    Also, journalist and filmmaker Robbie Martin is on to react to the Drug Enforcement Administration’s decision to list kratom as a Schedule 1 substance — deeming the much safer opioid alternative to be more dangerous than opioid medication that kills thousands of people every year.

    Then, we’re joined by the host of a self-described “Anarcho-Comedy show,” Street Fight Radio. We talk to Bryan Quinby about Conservative Facebook, Flat-Earthers, and, sadly, the damn election.
