New Philly DA’s ‘Radical’ Justice Reforms | Why Are White Guys Stockpiling Guns? | Katha Pollitt: Left Needs to Take #Russiagate Seriously

March 18, 2018 @ 1:59 pm

Elections have consequences. This week, we kick off with Maura Ewing, a writer-in-residence at the Fair Punishment Project, talking about her piece for Slate on Philadelphia's newly elected District Attorney Larry Krasner and the "wild" and "unprecedented" criminal justice reforms he's been rolling out in his first few months in office. 


Then we're joined by Greater Good editor Jeremy Adam Smith, who wrote a piece for Scientific American this week about why white men are stockpiling guns. 


Finally, Katha Pollitt returns to the show to talk about what #Russiagate skeptics get wrong and why the left needs to take the issue seriously.

This week, we're joined by union organizer Shaun Richman, who explains why Janus v. AFSCME, corporate America's latest assault on organized workers, may come back to bite them in the form of more labor unrest. 


Then we welcome Luke Barnes from Think Progress to discuss his piece on fringe right-wing violence against law enforcement, and how it often goes under-reported by the national press. 


Last but not least, Rewire News investigative reporter Sofia Resnick tells us about the Red Rose Rescues -- and anti-abortion activists' latest strategy to deny women the right to choose.
