3: The U.S. Doesn’t Love You Back

In this episode, Yvette and Cynthia discuss the murder of Philando Castile, the importance of POCs serving on juries, and Batson v. Kentucky- the case that supposedly did away with race-based juror striking. They voice their desire for true accountability as prison abolitionists, recognize the uncompensated labor by POC on juries, and call-out the bullshit of “race-neutral” explanations.

1: We Dropped the Diminutive

In the break-out episode of Cerebronas, Yvette and Cynthia discuss the recent detention of an immigration activist in LA, navigating an elite law school as Latina women, and Justice Sotomayor’s (arguably) most powerful dissent. They share their practice of self-care, shade white feminist jurisprudence, and critique the hypocrisy of conservatives’ free speech platform.
