::TRIGGER WARNING:: on this episode.
Ok, Now that we have said that, it’s not “all” triggering, but a heads up is important.
First off, we forgot to say “HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR,” so Happy year of the Ox!!!
In this ep we talk about some dope folks already bringing some serious Ox vibes. Powerhouse New York AG Letitia James who is sticking it to some violent clinic harassers, and Virginia is leading the way as the first southern state poised to have insurance coverage providing for abortion care.
Then we cover the burden of the Ox with a heavy, ::TRIGGER-WARNING:: portion of the pod, as we sit down with The Daily Beast’s Alaina Demopoulos, one of the first reporters to write about Ruben Verastigui, the anti-abortion, GOP pariah who has been arrested for child pornography.
