Pagans, Prison, and Propaganda (Episode 4)

A Season for Learning and Action

Summer Solstice is a time of celebration. Robin Renée, Mary McGinley, and Wendy Sheridan take a moment to savor the warmth of the season before diving into the chilling political news of the week. They share their reactions to the alienation of U.S. allies at the G7 summit and the movie trailer-like “inspirational” video Trump had in tow for Kim Jong-un to watch during their meeting in Singapore. In the And Then They Came for… segment, Robin, Mary, and Wendy scratch the surface of a devastating issue that has not affected them directly — the prison industrial complex. They discuss ideas about how to learn more and to begin to advocate for an end to mass incarceration. Mary talks about her admiration of Eleanor Roosevelt and shares info on a women’s history coloring book called Remembering the Ladies by Carol Simon Levin. Wendy has a coloring book for grown-ups called Harlequin and Other Fantasies. Robin has no coloring book endeavors.
