Synopsis:

Forget McArthur Park, Antartica is Melting!

We talked about the colonial war Russian is waging against the civilians of Ukraine.

We talked about Oscar the dog, shunned by owners because they figured he was a gay dog. Good ending on this one.

We talked about The Republican governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, refusing to acknowledge the existence of trans people after he'd signed into law two pieces of anti-trans legislation.

We talked about the summary judgment against former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-gender couples in 2015.

We talked about an ice shelf 460 square miles in size breaking off from East Antarctica after an "unprecedented heatwave."
