Dr. Louise Toppin joins Garrett to unpack these topics while showcasing her lifelong dedication to the music born from Afro-American culture. Garrett and Scott wrap up their celebration of Women's History Month by honoring the music of Julia Kent, Zoë Keating, Beyoncé, and others. For the weekly TRILLOQUY, the guys speak to the current legislated violence against women and trans people, and honor some of the women who have stood up against voter suppression and sexual assault.
