Ep 560 – Christa Pehl Evans and the Mom-Shaming Post that Went Viral

A few weeks ago, Christa posted on Facebook about a very unfortunate experience she had with a Judge while being selected to Jury Duty. The post went viral, and she is back on IOT to tell the story, and to talk about the implications of that experience as viewed through the lens of American history, and popular culture, and sociateal values, and science, and woo, and all kinds of yummy stuff.
