This week we discuss the protests in Portland, Oregon. And, I recently spoke with Eiko Strader, Assistant Professor of Public Policy & Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at George Washington University, about her recent paper titled “Will You Die for Your Country? Workplace Death in an Era of Mass Incarceration.” The paper is to be published in Sociological Forum, and is co-authored by Miranda Hines.

Segment 1 -- Eiko Strader on “Will You Die for Your Country? Workplace Death in an Era of Mass Incarceration.”

Segment 2 -- Challenges and possibilities of expanding the cultural toolkit of protestors in the shadow of the Portland protests.
