    Basketball legend and coach Dawn Staley is here with the latest on Brittney Griner—one of the best players in the WNBA—who has been detained in Russia since February after officials allegedly found cannabis oil in her luggage. Dawn and Jon break down the financial inequalities of the WNBA, how we can keep players from becoming political pawns, and what needs to happen to get Griner home.

Veterans and women

I can’t help but feel that Radical Republicans now feel that they can lie and abuse all veterans in the same ways that they lie and abuse women. The contempt is sickening.

An indecent proposal

I’m not one to suffer celebrities gaining public office, but Jon, you’ve just proven yourself uniquely qualified for the job. Whaddaya say? For the good of the union. Throw your hat in the ring. Please.

CO Tiger ,

Thank you!

For your fierce efforts on behalf of 1st Responders, Vets and Democracy!
