This is a very special episode we put together in 3 days. On September 18, 2020, Friday evening, we learned that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at the age of 87. It was one of those news stories where you remember exactly what you were doing when you heard it.
For this episode, hosts Izzy and Afra are joined by our guests Danmiao and Santu. Santu is in law school right now juggling between schoolwork and being a dad of two. Danmiao is a lawyer in New York City. Together we celebrate Notorious R.B.G’s life, legacy and her journey to pop culture icon. It’s actually a surprisingly uplifting episode, somehow.
*In this episode, you’ll hear:*
-How we learned of RBG’s death and how we processed the news
-What RBG means to each of us personally
-Ginsburg’s greatest contributions to women’s rights
-Why the soft-spoken justice became an unlikely pop culture icon in her last years
-How did the 2018 documentary R.B.G and the 2019 film “On the Basis of Sex” tell her story?
-Why is her death politically significant? What does it mean for our future in the U.S.
2019 “On the Basis of Sex”
2018 documentary: R.B.G
