1) Elliot Mincberg, People For the American Way's senior fellow, former chief counsel for oversight and investigations of the House Judiciary Committee and long-time Supreme Court expert, talks about the Supreme Court's ruling overturning Roe v. Wade federal abortion protections, another decision that repeals a 100 year old New York State law restricting the carrying of guns in public and additional SCOTUS rulings that point to the Supreme Court's out-of-control, extremist conservative majority's threat to democracy.

2) Claire Nader, a political scientist recognized for her work on the impact of science on society, discusses her new book, "You Are Your Own Best Teacher! Sparking the Curiosity, Imagination and Intellect of Tweens," that features a remarkable variety of teachable antidotes to the punishing forces bearing down on youngsters from harmful marketing, the insidious grip of ‘virtual reality’ and the tyranny of peer groups.

3) James G. Kahn, MD, MPH, Professor, Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at the Global Health Sciences & Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of San Francisco discusses the results of an important study he recently co-authored, "Universal healthcare as pandemic preparedness: The lives and costs that could have been saved during the COVID-19 pandemic."

4) Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, past president of the National Lawyers Guild talks about her just published article on the Supreme Court overturning women's reproductive rights, ""Self-Determination Has Been Wrenched Away From Half the US Population."
