Welcome back to "The Stakes," the show where we collectively hoist our machetes and try to hack our way through the tangled underbrush of politics, news, and social justice in the year 2016. The machetes have microphones on them, or something. Look, just go with us here. Coming up on the show today:
Part 1: Ana Marie Cox chats with Dan Savage for the second installment of "Some of My Best Friends," a series that explores the relationships that cross ideological lines.
Part 2: Julie Zeilinger interviews the plaintiff in the most important Supreme Court case on abortion since Roe v. Wade.
Part 3: Doreen St. Félix breaks down the sexist injustice of Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the U.S.
Part 4: Julianne Ross and Jaime Fuller address the wackiness of the Libertarian convention in Florida.
Part 5: Marcus Ellsworth reflects on the power of freedom songs.
