Rachel Handler and Leah Beckmann recorded this week's episode of “Lady Problems” before the election, in a simpler time when a violent, white supremacist, misogynist, xenophobic, KKK-backed, sexually predatory, unstable, dangerously unqualified demagogue was not yet our president. So while they don't spend the episode taking down Trump, rest assured that they'll verbally destroy him very soon. In the meantime, please enjoy their interview with Anna Biller, the director of a movie called The Love Witch, which, appropriately, is about a woman taking down the men who've mistreated her. Leah, Rachel, and Anna also talk about the relationship between art and politics, then solve a Lady Problem about boning and telling for a caller named Jessica.
Emily Bazelon, David Plotz, and John Dickerson are joined by Ta-Nahisi Coates to discuss the situation in Baltimore following the death of a black man while in police custody. They also talk about recent Supreme Court arguments over marriage equality and
