About this Episode

With the Dec. 10 execution of Brandon Bernard, the Trump administration is on track to execute more prisoners than any presidential administration in 130 years.

Conservative, pro-life activist, and commentator Hannah Cox joins the show to discuss why she believes conservatives should oppose the death penalty and this spree of executions. She tells her story of going from a staunch pro-death-penalty advocate to completely changing her mind and now running an organization called Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty.

Does the death penalty actually save money? Is it actually a deterrent for crime? Just how many innocent people get caught up and killed by the system? And do death penalty opponents sometimes downplay the atrocities of the crimes in question?

We discuss all this and more in a special bonus episode. (Oh, and Hannah offers up a spicy food take on pickles).
