ITT Sound Off: Not in Your Corner

Julio and guest co-host Renée Graham, opinion columnist at The Boston Globe, get into the latest CDC guidance and the investigations into former President Donald Trump, including the FBI’s search at Mar-a-Lago and the investigation into 2020 election interference in Georgia. They also recap this week’s primaries, from Representative Liz Cheney’s loss in Wyoming to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s run for Congress.

This episode was mixed by Rosana Cabán.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • “By some estimates, roughly three-quarters of the country harbors at least some immunity to recent variants. But those tools and others remain disproportionately available to the socioeconomically privileged,” writes Katherine J. Wu about the coronavirus pandemic’s “soft closing” in this piece for The Atlantic.

  • “Nobody from Trump to Tucker would be able to threaten American democracy without the willingness of white conservative voters to trash everything to keep themselves in power,” writes Elie Mystal, justice correspondent for The Nation in this piece. 

  • Aaron Rupar and Noah Berlatsky write about how Trump is an ongoing danger and will continue to commit crimes if he is not held accountable, in this piece for Public Notice.
