Table Topics: Oil Prices, Rittenhouse, and Ethical Debates

November 23, 2021
  • First up: We’ve got a breakdown of the week’s biggest stories – including anti-lockdown protests in Europe, what President Biden is doing to lower gas prices, and why more Americans are saying they don’t want to have children. 

  • Next: We’ll break down the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, and speaking to an expert about the bigger implications of this trial for gun rights in the United States. 

  • Then: We’ve got updates on the status of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai, and we’ll follow up on those labor strikes from October. 

  • Plus: If your family keeps complaining about the cost of this year’s Thanksgiving dinner, we’ve got some tips on how to limit the impact rising inflation will have on your wallet.

  • Finally: If your dinner table debates get a little too spicy this year, it might be time to call in the oracle of Delphi – or at least her AI replacement. Here’s where you can find her.

On this episode, you’ll hear from: 

  • Cheryl Bader, clinical associate professor of law, Fordham 

  • Liwei Jiang, PhD candidate, University of Washington
