“Facts Are My Religion” — Conscience Clauses, #HHS, & #Trans Candidates w/ @Rewire_News’s @TransScribe— #KatieSpeakShow Ep136 6/23/2018

In brief: Back on the show — repping her new gig as Rewire News Beltway reporter — is the always informative and dark humor delivering Katelyn Burns. We talk about local elections and trans candidates in the age of Trump, the OMB (an arm of the White House) telling the prez “Um, we have procedures around here,” and the general state of things.

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 at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
