California voters will soon decide whether to recall the judge who sentenced Brock Turner, and conspiracy theories seem to be taking over our public discussions. We’re talking about institutional trust and accountability as well as discussing the brutal realities of gun violence in today’s episode.

Thanks to TomboyX for sponsoring today's podcast. 

We discuss the campaign to recall Judge Persky, how elections impact the judiciary, and the punitive side of rape culture. 

We also talk about "The Storm" and how the Nunes memo is mainstreaming conspiracy theories. 

Finally, we talk with Dr. Sterling Haring about his experience treating victims of the Marshall County High School shooting. Content warning: Our conversation with Dr. Haring includes some upsetting and graphic information about how bullets impact human bodies.
