History was made last week in two Supreme Court cases. One affecting civil rights for gay and transgender workers and the other immigrant children. While many are celebrating these decisions there is still a lot up in the air on both issues. This week we talk about the decisions that were made, their impacts, and how the election could affect these rulings. We also discuss the Good Liar streaming on HBO, American Son, and since we're talking about DC politics we also reflect on the legacy and rewatchability of The West Wing
The Minneapolis City Council pledged to disband its police force last week and is now looking to replace it with a community-led public safety system. This week we discuss what that could look like based on what other cities have done, if this is the proper response to the protests, and if it should be tried elsewhere. We also discuss the new Spike Lee's new Netflix movie Da 5 Bloods, Just Mercy, and celebrate Pride by talking about the HBO show We're Here.
Doing something slightly different this week. No movie recap or comparison. This week we're talking about what's going on in the U.S. and sharing ways you can fight out against police brutality, racism, and the murder of black people by the police. Even if you are stuck inside and can't protest, like if you have an infant at home. And to do so Zach is joined by his wife, Sara Novic
Last week the NHL became the first major U.S. sports league to announce a formal plan for its return.
