Rena Karefa-Johnson on anti-choice Dem candidates and DOJ targeting affirmative action; Jacqueline Soller on ‘Good Time’ starring Robert Pattinson; John Knefel on white resentment in the White House; sneak peak of Re-TROS BTR Live Studio session.
John Knefel offers insight on 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. These latest policies include the plans to limit legal immigration and the investigation into whether or not affirmative action policies have a negative impact on white applicants to colleges and universities. Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch. Music featured in the episode: "Untitled" by Tiny Victories
