The death of the great RBG is absolutely devastating, and has made the stakes so much higher. In this episode, I talk about what we HAVE to do to keep our democracy. Things aren’t good.
Toward the end, I get into the arguments over whether RBG should have retired, mainly because in EVERY interaction I’ve seen online about this, people get a bunch of the factual information wrong. However, the arguments are almost completely moot, so if you feel you don’t need a history lesson, feel free to skip this part.
