This week, J is joined today by contributors Rena Karefa-Johnson and Matt Ruby to discuss the latest developments in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. They also delve into the imbalance of power in the Senate and SCOTUS toward the politics held by the minority of the people.
Later in the episode, Winston Cook-Wilson and J discuss the recently released movie, The Old Man & the Gun, directed by David Lowery and starring Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek.
And we have an exclusive early listen to a performance by a band from Richmond, Virginia, called Spooky Cool from their upcoming BTR Live Studio session.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
