Erin Ryan and Alyssa Mastromonaco talk to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand about the realities and battles of a post-Roe America. Next, in News, Erin and Alyssa dive into the different responses — from Democrats, from the GOP, from the states — to the overturning of abortion rights. Then, they’re joined by Charlie Jane Anders and Annalee Newitz to talk about the power of imagining different realities through science fiction while we live in an increasingly dystopian society, and why queer and other marginalized people are so good at writing them. Finally, finding joy in Sanity Corner.
