Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at some fresh crime statistics that blow up some of the media's favorite narratives.

Then we're joined by HuffPost reporter Travis Waldron to talk about the growing ties between key figures in the MAGA movement and their allies in Brazil, which is standing up to a very Trumpian threat to its young democracy.

Finally, Democratic strategist Dante Atkins tells us about what lessons we should take away from California Governor Gavin Newsom's landslide victory in this week's recall vote, and what some of the pundits have gotten terribly wrong.
