Arr Vee Dub, WTF? 

Briar joins Kevin and Jaime in the studio this week as they discuss the leaked SCOTUS memo regarding Roe v Wade. The trio takes some time to go over the history of abortion laws in the US, ways to handle the current arguments that seem to crop up, and how to discuss a challenging subject with a modicum of respect. 

Their expertise in regards to leaked documents, SCOTUS asshattery, and arguments about abortion? We’re in the age of the internet, baby. I think anyone over the age of 12 would qualify as an expert in at least one of those by now.

Their qualifications to discuss the topic? Random life experience and caffeination during recording sessions.

Basically, anything they discuss? Don’t take their word for it - but they hope you enjoy the show!

Common Ground This Week:

In Jaime’s Cup: French Vanilla Flavored Ground Coffee | Dunkin'® Coffee
