Ep 170: SCOTUS Likely Overturning Roe v. Wade

Ep 170: SCOTUS Likely Overturning Roe v. Wade

May 5, 2022

We process the news that the worst case scenario is upon us. The Supreme Court is most likely going to fully overturn 50 years of precedent and overturn Roe v. Wade and we are gutted, devastated and furious. Justice Alito's 98 page majority draft opinion leaked on Monday, and was verified Tuesday by Chief Justice Roberts. We understand this is a draft and things could change, but they probably won't. Proceed accordingly. 

 
We spend the entire podcast on this hellacious news. No we see yous this week.

Ep 166: Ketanji Brown Jackson & the Oscars Slap

Ep 166: Ketanji Brown Jackson & the Oscars Slap

April 7, 2022
We get into the infamous Slap. Discussion around this incident at the Oscars is especially relevant as we watched the disgraceful SCOTUS confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. From the judiciary committee to the Oscars we should all take a serious step back and reflect on the historic and widespread disrespect black women endure. There are so many ways this country and its citizens need to improve, and a great start would be to give black women the basic respect they deserve. Senate Democrats could also take note. 
 
We see you: Madison Cawthorn, Joe Manchin, Tennessee state legislature, Ginni Thomas, Oklahoma house of representatives, the Grammys

Ep 163: Book Banning & Censorship

Ep 163: Book Banning & Censorship

March 10, 2022

We discuss the rise of book banning and censorship from the GOP and conservative parents and communities throughout the United States this year in the wake of the especially stupid, dangerous censorship of the Pulitzer prize winning graphic novel Maus in the McMinn County Schools district in Tennessee. Emboldened parents are increasingly interfering in public education claiming "parental choice" as an excuse to shut down class discussions on everything from accurate American history to gender and sexuality, to the Holocaust.

Ep 161: Has Wokeism Peaked?

Ep 161: Has Wokeism Peaked?

February 24, 2022

We discuss the bleak and muddled state of Democratic politics by way of a Bloomberg article titled "Has Wokeism Peaked?" From the specifics of the San Francisco school board recall and the Canadian truckers, we wonder about how Democrats can actually win the hearts and minds of voters so we can actually enact the social change we all crave. Considering the GOP's hateful, hostile, ignorant platform...we can't believe we keep losing to them! How are we alienating voters? 

 
We see you: Gov. Kristi Noem, Ginni Thomas, gross dudes on the internet, Gov. DeSantis, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, The Academy Awards live telecast
