    Owning Our History with Robert Eager

    Owning Our History with Robert Eager

    This time on the Garrulous Gavel, we sit down with Robert Eager, founder of Own Your History. After retiring from a career as a successful corporate lawyer, Bob reconnected with his education in history, and set out to help the next generation of students grapple with the inequality that has marred much of U.S. history. We'll talk with Bob about the work of Own Your History, coming to grips with his own family's role in slavery and Jim Crow, and why he thinks it's so crucial for students to learn about the gaps between our democratic ideals and the reality of cruelty and discrimination. Then, we'll find out why Bob enjoys collaborating with grad students, and what kinds of support Own Your History needs to sustain its important work.

    Accountability for the Capitol Riot with Matt Kaiser

    Accountability for the Capitol Riot with Matt Kaiser

    In this episode, we speak with former philosophy grad student, and current high-profile Washington, D.C. attorney, Matt Kaiser. Matt represents Congressman Eric Swalwell in a lawsuit against Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Rudy Guliani, and Congressman Mo Brooks, in which Rep. Swalwell argues that those defendants should be held legally responsible for the violent January 6 riot at the Capitol that tried to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election. I talk with Matt about the events of January 6, the goals of the lawsuit, and some of the interesting legal and philosophical issues that it raises. Then, Matt tells us about what it's like to do door-knocking for political campaigns, and why he loves those one-on-one interactions with complete strangers.

    The Mysteries of the Grand Jury with Sara Kropf

    Our first episode features Sara Kropf, one of the nation’s top white-collar criminal defense attorneys. Sara not only represents defendants in high-profile criminal cases, but also authors the Grand Jury Target blog. We hear about grand juries in the news all the time. But what exactly is a grand jury, and what does it do? Sara will explain it to us, and then you can listen in as we chat about two of the biggest grand jury issues in recent years: the grand jury indictment of the Trump Companies and Trump CFO Allan Weiselberg, and the grand jury failure to indict in the Breonna Taylor case. We'll also get Sara's take on the Washington Nationals' chances at landing a playoff spot this year.
