Joe Biden stands accused of sexual assault. And the Democratic Party leadership, which had been loud in its support for #MeToo, is suddenly……..silent. But, is it possible to support Biden without abandoning MeToo? Can we take Tara Reade's allegation seriously while deeming Biden a worthy candidate for president??
In this bonus episode of Reckonings -- alas, no -- we're not doing a restorative justice dialogue between Joe Biden and Tara Reade. What we're doing is being introduced to Reckonings' new sister show: Infinite Lunchbox! And we're going to hear an Infinite Lunchbox episode on Biden, #MeToo, and the prospect of growing in public.
NOTE: Infinite Lunchbox is better *viewed* than heard — watch this episode on YouTube: https://bit.ly/350RJmG
