On this edition of Your Call, we're getting an update on the election results. While Joe Biden has broken the record for the most votes ever received by a presidential candidate: more than 72 million and counting, many wonder how Donald Trump managed to get more than 68 million votes, more than he got in 2016.

  On this edition of Your Call, we’re discussing Election Day results. It’s still too early to call a winner as states continue to count incoming mail-in ballots. While Trump has falsely claimed a victory, Biden is ahead in electoral votes.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoing SB 1062, the legislation giving legal cover to businesses denying services based on the operator's religious beliefs. Yes indeed, the bigot bill went down. And the disappointment rumbling through the Evangelical community has caused snakes to be mishandled all the way to Tennessee.

On today's Your Call we’ll talk about how schools decide what students can read in their libraries and classrooms and what happens when books are prohibited.  In Arizona, the Tucson Unified School District recently banned a long list of books in the Mexican American Studies program from their schools including Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the United States.  So what are the criteria for school reading?  And who should make these decisions?  And how does this affect freedom in public education?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.or
