In this episode:
- Yesterday the Supreme Court ruled that the Civil Rights Act protects LGBTQ+ employees from workplace discrimination in a 6-3 ruling. This is the first major case involving transgender rights, and it comes from a decidedly conservative court. We get into what it means, and how we got here.
- Plus, the latest on coronavirus, where cases are on the rise and how states and business are reacting.
- And in headlines: BLM protestor Oluwatoyin Salau found dead in Florida, hummingbirds see secret colors, and Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’ delayed at movie theaters. Akilah & Gideon’s book recommendations: Obviously: Stories From My Timeline by Akilah Hughes
