Part of a Series
On the pod this week, Daniella and Ed discuss the U.S. Department of Justice’s effort to drop all charges against Michael Flynn, as well as the tragic and infuriating cases of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. Then, Dr. Keisha Callins, an OBGYN in Georgia, joins the show to discuss what she is witnessing on the ground in a state that rushed to reopen its economy against the advice of the top U.S. health experts, as well as how the pandemic has exposed fault lines in the U.S. health care system.
