In memory of American hero Ruth Bader Ginsburg, my dear friend and superstar attorney Lisa Bloom joins me to talk about the legacy and impact of the iconic Supreme Court Justice. We also touch on the politics of the moment, social justice, climate change and so much more. Lisa is an inspired voice of justice and advocacy so this as always is a beautiful exchange.
