We start the show talking about Maya Angelou's impact and also about the explosion of the hashtag #YesAllWomen in the aftermath of the violent sexist rampage that left many dead in Santa Barbara recently. Then we hear from Jose Antinio Vargas--Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, filmmaker, and the founder of Define American,-- about his new film, Documented, the crowd reactions to it, and what his mother has to say. Next up we get the lowdown from the woman behind Viva La Feminista. Last but far from least we take an in depth look at gun culture in America and what we can do about it.
