There may be a new alphabet song, but Patti LaBelle’s is still the only one that counts! This week, Bryan talks about the Department of Homeland Security’s “Migrant Protection Protocols” that force asylum seekers to wait in Mexican border cities, as well as stats on the dangers faced by LGBT+ migrants from Central America. Then, Erin discusses the first Iranian soccer match in 40 years to allow women to attend (and why that’s not as much of a win for gender equality as it might seem).
