Cup of Justice co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland — listened to Dick Harpootlian’s (ridiculously long) farewell speech in the South Carolina Senate and needless to say, they have some thoughts on it. Especially when it comes to Dick’s tone-deaf defense of his own behavior defending Alex Murdaugh.

Also on the show, several lawmakers around the country are seriously considering introducing legislation to end no-fault divorces. Mandy, Liz and Eric discuss the possible impacts that could come from that, along with how women like Mica Francis deserve BETTER divorce laws, not worse ones. 

Our hosts also emphasized the importance of objectivity, fairness, and respect in their respective fields, as well as the need to protect women’s rights and autonomy. 
Premium Members get an extended discussion on Dick Harpootlian’s final words in the Senate, plus a conversation about a recent opinion piece that ran in Newsweek, calling Taylor Swift a bad role model for women and girls.

Let’s get into it…
