In their return from summer break, Yvette and Cynthia process Yvette’s California Bar experience, celebrate Roe v. Wade and the right to an abortion, and bemoan Google’s decision to censor information in China. They note the money-making/major-scam side of the Bar, normalize abortions, and worry about the impacts of Google’s technology.
