Our America with Julián Castro is another series from Lemonada Media, the creators of In the Bubble. As a holiday treat, we’re sharing a recent episode of theirs that features In the Bubble’s very own Andy Slavitt. Each week on Our America, Secretary Julián Castro helps listeners understand how to make sense of a non-stop stream of headlines affecting our daily lives. Joined by his long-time communications strategist, the unfiltered Sawyer Hackett, plus a collection of political leaders, journalists, and operatives from across the country, Julián reveals insider perspectives and witty hot takes on the issues troubling Our America.
In this episode, Julián and Sawyer welcome writer and abortion rights activist Lauren Rankin to make sense of the Supreme Court’s latest efforts to potentially invalidate Roe v. Wade. They also chat with ‘In the Bubble’ host Andy Slavitt about the emergence of the omicron COVID variant and his work with the Biden administration earlier this year to help combat the virus.
Follow Andy online at @ASlavitt and Lauren at @laurenarankin.
