#Mizzou, #Millennials, & #PatrickKane Off The Hook — #KatieSpeakShow Ep11 11/14/2015

In brief: I love me some Millennials! In the first half I talk about why I just had to write the dual letter piece for The Establishment on the revolution generation. I also got the chance to interview Dave Zirin right after the Mizzou president stepped down; we also talked about the Patrick Kane investigation being dropped.

So, SCOTUS Friday surprise announcement on theTexas omnibus anti-abortion law HB2 plus a rescheduled interview plus travel plus international news of massive magnitude resulted in just one interview on today’s show. Which is alright because next week’s show is all interview and there are some format flexibility moments happening in the upcoming episodes. I talked about that, my love of Millennials — the revolution generation, and had the chance to interview the awesome Dave Zirin right after the Mizzou president stepped down. We talked student athletes and activism as well as the end of the Patrick Kane rape accusation case.

Quote of the Show: “It says something really rotten about our criminal justice system if people feel like they can’t go forward to try to get justice because of the fact that the weight of the accusation goes on the accuser and not the accused when it comes to sexual assault.”— Dave Zirin
