Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the hour by returning guest and editor of Workday Magazine Sarah Lazare to discuss her latest reporting for Workday and In These Times. 

After introducing listeners to Workday Magazine and its long history in Minnesota and beyond, Sarah shares the story of Amazon warehouse worker Roger Kieca, whose tragic death due to brutal working conditions was dismissed as “not work-related” by both Amazon and OSHA before the revelation of new, incontrovertible evidence obtained by Workday and In These Times.

Follow Sarah on Twitter or X or whatever @SarahLazare, and keep up with her reporting at In These Times and Workday Magazine (you can also still order Testimony from Strong Arm Press!).

Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the show by independent journalist Bryce Covert to discuss her latest for In These Times about the impact of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization one year after the Supreme Court’s decision overturned the limited constitutional protections for abortion in the United States. Bryce is a reporter in residence at the Omidyar Network and a contributing writer at The Nation. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Magazine, the Washington Post, Wired, the New Republic, Slate and many other outlets. 

After briefly sharing her own political origin story, Bryce relates the ongoing struggles of Lationna Halbert and her family after Mississippi’s trigger abortion ban forced her to carry her pregnancy to term. Bryce and Kumars discuss the legal and economic barriers Lationna and people in her position face when seeking abortions in the even more repressive landscape of reproductive care post-Dobbs, as well as the failure of states like Mississippi to address the increased financial and infrastructure needs of parents and families robbed of their reproductive autonomy.

Make sure to read Bryce’s full report at In These Times. You can also follow Bryce on Twitter @brycecovert and find more of her work at her website, brycecovert.com.
