Brad and Dan begin by discussing the latest news from SCOTUS – Clarence Thomas’s many vacations with right-wing billionaires – by framing the entire GOP’s approach to politics as a will to power. Dan draws on a piece by a retired conservative judge in order to demonstrate that the American right has become the party of power and negativity.
Brad then goes through a litany of issues related to sex and gender: from reactions to the World Cup loss of the US women’s team to Matt Walsh’s comments on pansexuals to Praeger U being taught in Florida schools.
In the final segment the hosts analyze the mid-summer vote in Ohio and what it means for reproductive rights across the country.
