(Originally aired: 8/21/17) Guest: Andrew Foley, Ranger, National Trust in England Three thousand years ago, the image of a giant white horse was cut into the rolling hillside of Uffington, which is about 20 miles southwest of Oxford, England. It’s a sleek and minimalist stallion, as long as a football field, leaping across the landscape, bright white against the green turf. It’s made of chalk, and you have to wonder how it has survived the forces of erosion over three millennia.

History of Politics in Supreme Court Nominations

21 MINS

Guests: Chris Karpowitz, PhD, Professor of Political Science, Brigham Young University; Grant Madsen, PhD, Professor of History, Brigham Young University The White House and the Supreme Court are Top of Mind today. If confirmed by the Senate, Brett Kavanaugh will be the second Supreme Court justice appointed by President Trump. The resulting conservative majority on the high court will be a signature achievement in President Trump’s legacy. But rather than taking a victory lap, the White House is embroiled in drama over an anonymous op-ed published Wednesday in the New York Times by a senior administration official calling President Trump “amoral” and claiming to be part of a resistance within the White House working to protect the country from Trump’s “misguided impulses.” President Trump says the anonymous editorial is “gutless.”

Girls Will Be

11 MINS

(Originally aired: 8/18/17) Guest: Sharon Choksi, Co-founder, Girls Will Be If you’re at an elementary school this week and come across a line of second-graders walking to lunch, you can expect to see boys dressed in loose basketball shorts or baggy cargo shorts down to their knees, t-shirts in bold colors with graphics pronouncing themselves “Hero” or “#Awesome.” The girls will have tighter fitting shorts landing well above the knee and t-shirts with ruffles and sparkles. When her daughter Maya was about this age, Sharon Choksi found that she couldn’t find any clothes Maya liked because the girls’ clothes were too tight, skimpy or frilly, and the boys’ clothes were too baggy and bulky. So the former McKinsey consultant started her own company to make the clothes her daughter wanted.
