Brad and Dan begin with first reactions to the late breaking news that Donald Trump will be indicted next week. They discuss the details of the case, the reactions from the GOP, and what the future might hold.
They then turn their attention to Nashville, where the community continues to mourn the victims of the mass shooting at a private school. Dan discusses the numbness that lawmakers and everyday Americans feel in the context of ubiquituous gun violence. Brad links the unwillingness to address the problem to Christian nationalist’s understanding of order, violence, and the need to have the power to put “others” in line.
In the second segment, Brad outlines the high stakes of the Wisconsin Supreme Court election – and how it will effect abortion rights, voting rights, and the viability of free and fair elections in the state – and beyond.
In the final segment, Dan breaks down the new law in Kentucky that bans gender affirming care.
