Glenn Kirschner: Convicting Trump of negligent homicide is ‘entirely doable’

This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show with a look at how the right has completely dropped the mask and is openly saying that we would be better off if fewer people voted. 
Then we're joined by Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor and legal analyst for NBC, to talk about how corporate America is pushing back on Republican efforts to make it harder to vote--and how Trump may well be held accountable for his ham-fisted but nonetheless dangerous attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. 
And then we speak with Dr. Brandy Schillace, author of Mr. Humble and Dr. Butcher: A Monkey’s Head, the Pope’s Neuroscientist, and the Quest to Transplant the Soul, about the macabre Cold War race to perform a human head transplant and the fascinating surgeon who almost pulled it off.
