Books banned in schools and prisons; Old Crow Medicine Show’s new album : Here & Now Anytime

Former lawyer Rudy Giuliani is being sued for defamation by Georgia election workers he defamed. Michael Gottlieb, the attorney for two of those workers, joins us.

And, Ali Velshi tells us about his new podcast, called “Banned Book Club,” which focuses on books prohibited in schools across the U.S. And bans on books don’t only apply to schools — Missouri has banned incarcerated people from receiving books in the mail. Dylan Pyles, co-founder of the nonprofit Liberation Lit, joins us to talk about it.

Then, Nashville band Old Crow Medicine Show released a new album called “Jubilee.” Ketch Secor, one of the band’s founders and current frontman, joins us to talk about the new music and his commitment to gun policy reform.
