We recap FFRF’s impressive legal statistics for 2018 (1,060 formal complaint letters to erring government officials ending 315 state/church violations!). FFRF’s Robert G. Ingersoll Legal Fellow Colin McNamara briefly joins us to recap the ruckus his complaint over religious displays is creating in Camden, Mo. The rest of the program is devoted to a never-before-broadcast interview of the fascinating, freethinking, feminist and feisty Cecile Richards, formerly head of Planned Parenthood, before an audience of 1,000 freethinkers. Tune in to hear what it was like growing up in Texas as the daughter of Ann Richards, Cecile’s first state/church protest in sixth grade, how Jarred Kushner tried to “bribe” Planned Parenthood to stop providing abortions and why Cecile thinks patriarchy might be in its last gasp. P.S. As a bonus, we play a bit of “Sandan Shuffle,” by saxophonist Virginia Mayhew, granddaughter of Ansel Adams and daughter of longtime FFRF member Anne Helms.
