UPDATE 11/28/2017: The audio of our interview is now safely preserved and available at the Internet Archive!
Our pals Gary Colmenar and Elizabeth Robinson cohost the radio show “No Alibis” on KCSB Santa Barbara wednesdays from 9am – 11am. No Alibis is a “Critical look at news, both domestic and international, from the dystopian to the utopian.” And this Wednesday November 22 at around 9:30am Pacific, you’ll have your chance to hear Shari Laster and I wax utopian about all things Title 44. Stream it live over the internet! If you can’t tune in at 9:30am (and really, what else do you have to do at that time?!) we’ll be posted the audio for your listening pleasure shortly after the show is done.
And of course, as any govinfo wonk worth her salt, we gave Gary and Elizabeth some background readings so they’ll be able to keep their heads above the weeds.
