DeRay, Brittany, Clint and Sam discuss the man behind modern Republican gerrymandering, the connection between the firing of NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo and a decrease in arrests, how one Trump-Appointed prosecutor is interfering in local reform, and the perpetuation of whiteness in classical sculpture. Anthony Graves, death row exoneree, and Cassandra Stubbs, join DeRay to talk about capital punishment and their work at the ACLU.
