August 1, 2015 Show

This week, we speak with Jeff Sharlet about the police shooting death of an unarmed black man that has garnered very little media attention despite being caught on videotape. Sharlet, a professor of creative writing at Dartmouth, says that virtually everything the police say about the case is contradicted by the evidence.

Then we'll speak to RH Reality Check Senior Legal Analyst Jessica Pieklo about the Right's new war on reproductive health -- and who's really behind those Planned Parenthood sting videos.

Finally, we'll be joined by syndicated columnist Tina Dupuy, who spent 24 years in recovery from alcoholism despite the fact that she'd only ever had a few alcoholic beverages back in her tweens.
