You may know Tanya Acker as one of three judges on CBS Television Distribution's Emmy-nominated HOT BENCH. But long before HOT BENCH, Tanya was delving into problems in the corridors of the public and private sectors with some of the country's top minds. Look a problem in the eye and figure out how to fix it - social media dislikes and cathartic rants can only get us so far. The Tanya Acker Show is about recognizing that we're bigger than our problems. It's about looking at truth; fighting better and smarter with each other; brainstorming ideas; knowing that bad things are fixable; and having more fun. We hope you'll listen in as Tanya and her guests explore a wide range of topics - from fighting frivolous lawsuits to ensuring meaningful criminal justice reform to breaking bread with political opponents without breaking glass in each other's faces. Early guests include Anthony Daniels, Alabama House Minority leader (and the first African-American to hold the job); Lecia Brooks, historical consultant on BlacKKKlansman and expert on voting rights; Lawyers Paul Derby, Michael Trope on fighting frivolous lawsuits; Former prosecutor David Kettel on crying wolf to the police. Listen to The Tanya Acker Show - where we'll get real and not just mad, where we look for ways to fix what troubles us, and where we remember to have a little fun from time to time, too.
