Enough (Episode 159)


"But Not Enough to Save You" by Abby DriscollWhen Abby Driscoll, a senior at Fort Defiance High School in Verona, VA had a piece placed in a school art show, she likely didn’t expect the drama that ensued. Listener Tony Rogers of Fairfax, VA sent the story to The Leftscape via X/Twitter to spark conversation between co-hosts Robin Renée and Wendy Sheridan. This featured discussion ranges from thoughts on the artwork, “But Not Enough to Save You,” to serious concerns about censorship, art and book banning, and right-wing influence on school boards, the importance of down-ballot electoral races, and the power of art as activism.

The episode gets started with Wendy and Robin revealing their latest new knowledge in This Fortnight I Learned — this time on the topics of the design of chef’s hats and well-known actors whose 60s band collaboration is surprising. All the News We Can Handle includes Rudy Giuliani served with notice of his indictment for efforts to overturn 2020 presidential election results, Kristi Noem banned from Native American reservations, and a call from the international criminal court for arrest warrants for Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s defense minister, Yoav Gallant, and Hamas leaders. Also in the news: the Human Rights Campaign’s massive public education and mobilization campaign ahead of the 2024 elections, Nevada activists secure signatures for a vote on abortion access, Art Smart singing lessons, and much more.

Before the featured discussion, Robin and Wendy enter The Blanket Fort for an extended personal check-in.
