Show Notes

[Episode theme]

RGB has left us for a year. At this moment, when the Texas abortion law diminishes her political legacy, we re-upload this episode we recorded the second day she passed away. 

In this episode, we looked back at Ginsberg’s life, as well as the many landmark cases she participated in. We know history is composed of light and shade, the future is blur and fragile. But people like Ginsburg paddled through the countercurrent. And we want to make her struggle more visible. 


[Content]

-How we learned of RBG’s death and how we processed the news

-What RBG means to each of us personally 

-Ginsburg’s greatest contributions to women’s rights 

-Why the soft-spoken justice became an unlikely pop culture icon in her last years

-How did the 2018 documentary R.B.G and the 2019 film “On the Basis of Sex” tell her story?

-Why is her death politically significant? What does it mean for our future in the U.S.
