  2. Alka Pradhan, Lecturer in Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, shares her views on the controversy surrounding Steven G. Bradbury, President Trump’s nominee to become general counsel at the federal Transportation Dept., due to Bradbury’s signing off on legal cover for US torture of detainees during the George W. Bush administration. She’ll also provide an update on the current status of detainees at Guantanamo Bay military prison, where she works as a Human Rights Counsel with the US Guantanamo Bay Military Commissions.
  3. Jessica J. González, Deputy Director of the media democracy group Free Press, talks about the current national campaign to oppose the Trump administration’s effort to dismantle Net Neutrality by repealing Tittle II protections for a free and open Internet.
  4. Ann O’Brien, Director of Community Engagement with Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, IRIS of New Haven, discusses her group’s work here in Connecticut, and how the Supreme Court’s recent ruling to temporarily and partially reinstate President Trump’s travel ban will impact the refugees they work with locally and others across the nation.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

On the 103rd anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, we talk with two authors who have written books about the war: Margaret Wagner (America and the Great War) and Richard Rubin (Back Over There). On June 28 1914, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria — heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire — was assassinated by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, Bosnia. That event is widely acknowledged to have sparked the outbreak of WWI. The War profoundly changed the world, including the U.S. and its place in the world, something we’ll explore today with each of our guests.
