A roadmap to notching policy wins in the Trump Era and beyond.
Is Christian nationalism a threat to democracy?
Christian nationalists are defending Russia’s invasion of Ukraine — and openly embrace the use of violence against political opponents here at home. In our newest episode, Yochi and Abby talk to Rev. Pamela Cooper-White, the author of a new book on Christian nationalism, about why the movement is getting stronger, how it fueled the January 6th insurrection, and why its true agenda is white supremacy.
Abortion’s new geography
With a leaked decision showing that the Supreme Court will soon gut abortion rights, Abby spoke with Jennifer Welch, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Illinois, about the mechanics of getting an abortion in a post-Roe world, how abortion providers in Illinois are already preparing for a surge of pregnant people from other states, and the constitutional rights SCOTUS might come after next.
The War on LGBTQ
With an array of states considering their own versions of Florida's controversial "don't say gay" bill, Raben Group Founder Robert Raben sits down with Elliot to discuss the true dangers of the new legislation, why conservatives are weaponizing the LGBTQ issue, and why sexuality may again be a major front in the nation's culture wars.
"Persevere": Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Speaks
On our latest SCOTUS episode, Abby and Jeremy speak with Brandi Colander, co-founder of #SheWillRise, about the racism and misogyny that marred Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearing, what it means for a Supreme Court in peril, and why progressives need to keep the pressure on until the Senate's final vote.
With Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings just days away, judicial expert Lena Zwarensteyn of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights joins Abby, Yochi, and Jeremy Paris to discuss how some senators will try to block Jackson’s nomination, how progressives will defend it, and why this fight will set the stage for the bigger Supreme Court battles still to come.
SCOTUS, meet KBJ.
With President Biden formally nominating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, Abby and guest host Jeremy Paris spoke with Fatima Goss Graves, president of National Women’s Law Center, about what we need to know about the potential first Black woman justice in SCOTUS history, what progressives can do to support her during the confirmation fight ahead, and how her voice will shape our country for decades to come.
