The attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando that served as a haven for the LGBT community is the deadliest mass shooting in our history. This week, we mourn with the victims, the injured, the families of the victims, the first responders, and the thousands of traumatized survivors of gun violence. But thoughts and prayers aren’t enough; we discuss what we can do to fight hatred and keep guns out of the wrong hands, especially highly-dangerous weapons of war. And in the second half of the show, in honor of Father’s Day, we unpack some of the myths around the “Deadbeat Dad,” and discuss why our punitive child support system desperately needs reform.
