This week Bryan and Erin take a tour-pause to cover the refusal of Russian police to investigate homophobic hate crimes and Rihanna’s open letter to The Guardian advocating for global education. Then they sit down with activist, military vet, and writer Charlotte Clymer to chat about the unexpected benefits of coming out, Melania Trump’s bullying, and whether the Supreme Court hearings have really energized anybody - all leading up to a surprise performance!
