Episode Date
387: Trans Military Ban Enacted, Pro-Life’s Racist Roots
00:41:49

What's messier: the Lori Loughlin college admission scandal or Julian Assange’s kitchen? Trump’s transgender military ban is in full swing, and Bryan talks us through the practical implications for servicemembers who live in a country that refuses to take care of the people who fight and die for it. Then, in the wake of Ohio passing another “heartbeat bill” prohibiting abortions at 6 weeks with zero exceptions, Erin discusses the long history of the pro-life movement’s insidious entanglement with a racist, white supremacist ideology.
