In this week’s episode of Lever Time Premium, our extended weekly podcast for supporting subscribers, Producer Frank, Andrew Perez, and Julia Rock discuss the “One Thing” that’s been most on their mind recently. This week, they discuss the potential UPS strike, how to hold a “liberal intervention,” and Larry Summers’ call for more unemployment while literally on vacation (34:36).

In addition: Last October, grocery giants Kroger and Albertsons announced they planned to merge and become one of the largest grocery monopolies in the country. To learn what’s at stake, David Sirota is joined by journalist Moe Tkacik, who has been covering the story for months, and Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser, who recently launched a multistate antitrust investigation into the potential merger (10:00).
