Buckle Up

Maria and Julio are joined by two ITT All-Stars, Dr. Eddie Glaude Jr., the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor at Princeton University and Callie Crossley, host of WGBH’s Under the Radar to talk all things 2020 Election. They talk about this week's Democratic National Convention and the future of the Democratic party as more progressive candidates are winning their primaries. Then they preview the Republican National Convention that is set for next week. They also discuss what's going on with the United States Postal Service and what it means for mail-in ballots and voting rights this November. Finally, they shine light on the latest with the Black Lives Matter movement and Eddie Glaude's new book, Begin Again, which looks at the legacy of James Baldwin.
