2580 - Redistricting Battles & The Need to Abolish Student Debt w/ Aaron Kleinman, Astra Taylor & Umme Hoque
Sam and Emma host Aaron Kleinman, Director of Research at the Future Now, to discuss how the 2020 Census data will impact redistricting in the House. Then Astra Taylor and Umme Hoque from the Debt Collective join to discuss how those striking against student debt will escalate their demands now that the Biden Administration has not met their demands.
And in the Fun Half: Sam's midterm advice for the Dems: use before you lose it, Mark Warner says we need to lower worker standards for equality's sake, McCarthy feeds Liz Cheney to wolves, Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly have a "gentleman's disagree" over Biden, and Sam reads your IMs!
