Despite the fact that Brexit has been a thing for years now, things are still a mess over in the United Kingdom as they attempt to decide exactly how this is going to go down. Today, we're breaking down what you need to know about Brexit before we discuss our opinions about it on Tuesday's episode. 

We'll be answering all these questions and more:

  1. How did Britain get to be in the European Union in the first place?
  2. How did Bexit became a thing?
  3. What's in the divorce deal?
  4. What is the Irish backstop and why is it complicating things?
  5. What happens after Theresa May leaves office?

We start by talking about developments in the 2020 field, including the addition of Mark Charles, Kirsten Gillibrand's failure to launch, and security risks exemplified by what happened to Kamala Harris. We also share our heartbreak over the shooting in Virginia Beach and ponder President Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom. 

For Compliment the Other Side, Beth honors the work of Democrats in Connecticut who are working on a new budget package. 

In our main segment, we respond to listener Cody's message about Pride Month. We share our personal journeys in relation to LGBTQ rights and how we got to the positions we hold now.

Finally, we reflect again on the life and legacy of Rachel Held Evans and what an honor it was to be at her funeral this weekend. It was truly a sacred experience and we are so grateful to have known her. We encourage you to take the time to watch the funeral service yourself.
