Ginni Thomas, the Supreme Court, and Abolishing Student Debt

Ginni Thomas, the Supreme Court, and Abolishing Student Debt

On this week’s podcast, Joan Walsh on January 6 and Astra Taylor on April 4.


Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, will be called to testify before the House Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. Joan Walsh has our analysis of the text messages she sent supporting the riot, and of their significance for the court—as well as our politics.

Also: Monday, April 4 is the Day of Action to Abolish Student Debt, when thousands of young people will gather in Washington, D.C., to say “Pick Up the Pen, Joe”—to abolish student debt via executive action. Astra Taylor will explain; she’s a cofounder of the Debt Collective.
