This week, we welcome new contributor Rena Karefa-Johnson to discuss the Democratic Party establishment’s potential willingness to support anti-choice candidates in upcoming election cycles and moves by the Department of Justice under Attorney General Jeff Sessions to undo affirmative action in college and university admissions. Also, Jacqueline Soller returns to discuss the new movie, Good Time, directed by Ben and Joshua Safdie and starring Robert Pattinson. And along the way, Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel explains recent policies from the White House that indicate the administration is promoting politics of white resentment in an effort to appeal to President Trump’s base; a man named Eòghan tells us about his experience teaching Gaelic in Scotland; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Re-TROS from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
