In brief: I’m so delighted that the co-author of the best-selling “Notorious RBG” could come on to get wonky and fan-girl-y about the Supreme Court at the close of the session. Shana Knizhnik is smart, knowledgeable, lovely, and has a knack for making case law and inner workings of the court interesting and understandable for us lay folks! Also on the show, one of my new favorite people: Victoria Rodríguez, LGBTQ activist, Trans/GNC Justice Project Director at The National LGBTQ Task Force, and mental health advocate — among her many hats. She’s on to break down everything that’s wrong with Rep Tim Murphy’s “comprehensive mental health reform” bill.
Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
