Part I: Criminal Justice Reform After The Boudin Recall

Listen to Part I: Criminal Justice Reform After The Boudin RecallTwo weeks ago, Bay Area communities held local primary elections. San Francisco voters overwhelmingly endorsed Proposition H, recalling progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin. At the same time, in two neighboring counties, voters turned away from relatively liberal sheriffs, each in favor of a candidate touting progressive reforms, and, in two counties, contested races for district attorney resulted in reelection of incumbents with differing policies toward criminal justice.Tonight, to discuss the implications of the election for criminal justice reform statewide and for Bay Area politics, YLR Host Jeff Hayden, and tonight’s co-host Dean Johnson are joined by Eugene Hyman, retired judge of the Santa Clara County Superior Court, San Francisco Attorney Randall Knox, political pundit Mark Simon, Jay Boyarsky, Chief Assistant District Attorney of Santa Clara County, and Oakland-based civil rights attorney John Burris.Questions for Jeff, Dean and their amazing panel of guests?

The Roots of January 6

Listen to The Roots of January 6When historians look back at this point in history, the single biggest domestic issue will be the investigation of the incursion on January 6th, and the affects upon our democratic republic.That an attack on the capital, on the very day the votes were to be counted, was predicted by Professor Lawrence Douglas of Amherst; he repeated that prediction on this program well in advance of January 6.The focus of today's congressional hearings was Dr. John Eastman, the man alleged to be the legal Archetect of the broader attack on the presidential election. Dr. Eastman, was on this program, two weeks before the election, wherein he espoused false claims about a rigged election.Amidst the Congressional hearings underway, we tonight will replay that discussion.YLR Host Jeff Hayden, and tonight’s Co-Host Joshua Borger are joined by Dr. John Eastman (formerly) the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service at Chapman University, Professor Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of the Berkeley School of Law and Jesse H.
