This week, contributor Oriana Leckert discusses ‘Demystifying Government,’ a series of panels she has been involved in organizing since the 2016 election to help people to educate and/or update themselves on civics and governmental issues. Contributor Matt Ruby then joins us for a further discussion of the topic. Also, Jacqueline Soller returns to discuss the recently released movie, The Circle, starring Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Patton Oswalt, Ellar Coltrane, and John Boyega. And along the way, we hear from Radio Dispatch’s Molly Knefel with her take on newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and his first meaningful vote, we learn about a woman named Naya and what’s it been like for her to have an identical twin sister, and we get an early listen to an exclusive performance by Lexie Roth from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
