This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show with a look at two cases in which right-wingers tasked with upholding the law appear to be targeting their political adversaries with dubious prosecutions.

Then we're joined by Scott Hechinger, a veteran public defender and executive director of the advocacy group Zealous, to help us sort fact from fiction in the debate over cash bail reform. Contrary to a lot of lazy media narratives, the policy, which once enjoyed very broad support across the ideological spectrum, has been correlated with a reduction in recidivism and Scott explains why.

Finally, we talk midterms and a Republican Party that appears to be trying its best to lose them with Salon columnist and OG blogger Heather "Digby" Parton.
