Episode 015: Covert Congress and Overt Pride with Guest Katelyn Burns
Arif Hasan and Ben Natan discuss the nefarious acts the Senate and House have been up to while the country has had their attention focused on the Comey and Sessions hearings, including a budget reconciliation strategy for health care in the Senate and a repeal of Dodd-Frank having already passed the House. We also cover Labour's surprisingly positive showing in the United Kingdom before we invite our special guest, Katelyn Burns, to talk about the history of pride, what issues come with organizing pride and what issues face the trans and queer community today beyond the headlines.
Devon and Sarah discuss the Senate Intelligence Committee's public hearing with James Comey, who was fire by Trump for having the gall to investigate him for colluding with Russia. (Or for mishandling the Hillary Clinton email server case, depending on who in the White House you actually talk to...) They award the Maxine Waters Award in Badassery. They also interview writer Katelyn Burns.
