The Supremes

We gave our best efforts to focus The Pearls on non-election events (by focusing on the FBI's thwarting of a bombing in Kansas, violence in Baghdad, a gun manufacturer liability ruling, and the Wells Fargo fallout). But, the 2016 race pulled us back in. In The Suit, we talk about the role of the Supreme Court today and how Trump and Clinton might approach the court. Finally, in The Heels, we talk about much-needed self-care during the election season.
