Alex Yemeck speaks with Judge Michael Landrum '73, a judge in the 164th district court, about the tension in the judicial system. Landrum explains the difference between a civil case and a criminal case, how that relates to recent court cases regarding police brutality and what steps need to be taken in order to restore a sense of trust in the judicial system across the nation. He also touches on his re-election campaign and lays out how running for a position in the judicial system differs from running for office in the executive and legislative systems.

Alex Yemeck sits down with Dr. Stuart Squires, Assistant Director of the Nesti Center for Faith and Culture, and asks questions prompted by his "How Catholic Should Vote" lecture where he examined the USCCB document "Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship." Squires deep-dives into the limitations of a two party system, what the separation of Church and State means, and how Catholic can ban together to demand candidates who better reflect their worldview.
