We start off today's show with a robust discussion of current events. We address the controversy around the leadership of the Women's March and why we still feel there is value in events like it. We also discuss the ongoing shutdown and new revelations about President Trump's interactions with the Russian government. Plus, in recognition of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we are joined by Marissa Castellanos to discuss the politics of human trafficking and what steps we can take to aid in its prevention.
Resources on Human Trafficking:
Marissa's Recommended Books: Girls Like Us by Rachel Lloyd, Slave by Mende Nazer, Overdressed by Elizabeth L. Cline, and The Travels of a T-shirt in the Global Economy by Pietra Rivoli
