Counterpoint with Scott Harris

1) Mel Goodman, a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, author and former CIA analyst, discusses his recent article “Has the Putin-Prigozhin Confrontation Opened a Door for Negotiation?” — an analysis that flies in the face of conventional wisdom in Washington.

2) Risa Lieberwitz, general counsel with the American Association of University Professors and professor of labor and employment law at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations assesses the US Supreme Court ruling that ended affirmative action in college admissions across the U.S.

3) Ahmed White, professor of law at the University of Colorado, Boulder talks about his new book, “Under the Iron Heel: The Wobblies and the Capitalist War on Radical Workers,” a dramatic, deeply researched account of how legal repression and vigilantism brought down the Wobblies — and how the destruction of their union haunts us to this day.

4) Kristin McGuire, executive director of the group Young Invincibles, discusses the Supreme Court ruling blocking student debt relief and the group’s position on how President Biden should respond.
