Elie Mystal: Let’s stop worshipping the ’slavers’ Constitution’

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at why the war in Ukraine is likely to be intractable for a long while to come. (We hope he got this one wrong.) 
 
Then we're joined by Elie Mystal, The Nation's justice correspondent and author of the new book, Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution, to talk about this week's confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson and why a good Constitution wouldn't require us to keep fighting overt basic rights for over two centuries.
 
And then we get caught up on some good news about an important green energy initiative in New York by Jessica Azulay from Alliance for a Green Economy. That's right--actual good news!
