This week, we'll speak with Seattle City Councilmember Mike O'Brien, who went out in a kayak to take part in protests against Shell's Polar Pioneer drilling rig, which is headed North to plunder a pristine Arctic ecosystem.

Then we'll be joined by Dana Goldstein. Dana, a staff writer with The Marshall Project, wrote this week about the difficulties society faces balancing justice against rehabilitation for very young violent offenders.

Finally, Joshua Holland offers some thoughts about this week's horrific act of racial terror in Charleston, South Carolina.
