This week Erin Ryan and Alyssa Mastromonaco talk about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine halt, the increased health risks that anyone with uteruses face, the GOP’s missing empathy bone, and the brave men, women and children testifying in the Derek Chauvin trial. Plus, we follow up with labor journalist Kim Kelly about the Alabama Amazon union vote in a new segment called “Wait, What Happened?”.
