Episode 154 talks about how to stand up to Trump's vile immigration policies, and then discusses a controversial story on transgender kids and one very uplifting movie. Nate Gowdy


Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders dissect the latest lies and evasions from the Trump administration as it faces backlash over its policy of separating mothers from their children along the southern border. Also: Should Democrats have been shouting about the family separation policy sooner?

After that, Katie Herzog talks about a controversial cover story in the current issue of The Atlantic. It’s about children who identify as trans, and the backlash over the Atlantic story reminds Katie of the online pushback she received for a piece she wrote last summer on “detransitioners."

Finally, something about borders and migration that’ll set your mind right—courtesy of Rich.

Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
