All Shook Up: SCOTUS Fallout and Summer Travel Tricks

June 30, 2022
  • First: We’re looking at the fallout in the US after SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade last week (think: trigger laws, legal battles, and the scramble to find abortion care). Plus, we sat down with Governor Gretchen Whitmer from Michigan on the complicated future of abortion rights in her state. 

  • Next: Last weekend, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for the impeachment of two Supreme Court justices. We’ll break down why AOC wants them gone, who else is beefing with SCOTUS, and if impeachment is even possible – all in 60 seconds. 

  • Then: We’re turning the mic over to our listeners, to hear how they’re thinking about a post-Roe America. 

  • ICYMI: We’ve got the other major headlines from this week, including: final rulings from SCOTUS about the environment and immigration, a bombshell testimony about what happened on Jan. 6, the tragic migrant deaths in TX, and Finland and Sweden joining NATO.

  • Finally: Summer travel is already hitting some turbulence. So while we wait for the airlines to get their s*** together, we got some insider tips on how you can travel smarter – not harder.
