ITT Sound Off: Attempted Coup

Julio and guest co-host Jamilah King, managing editor at BuzzFeed News, talk about the final January 6 hearing of the summer, the bills passed in the House to protect same-sex marriage and the right to contraception, and the recent racist attacks against South Texas Representative Mayra Flores.

This episode was mixed by Rosana Cabán.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • Trump’s “idleness, the committee sought to prove, should not be confused with ineffectiveness. It was complicity,” writes Jim Newell in his breakdown of the final January 6 hearing of the summer, for Slate.

  • Orion Rummler reports for The 19th on how the Respect for Marriage Act would protect same-sex marriage if the landmark Supreme Court case of Obergefell v. Hodges is overturned.

  • “It’s time for Democrats and so-called liberals to stop being smug when it comes to Latino voters and instead start earning the respect,” writes Julio in this opinion piece for MSNBC about the racist attacks against Rep. Mayra Flores.
