PODCAST: Kate Bornstein is plugged into our Danny Masterson retrial coverage


We can’t believe it’s been 11 years since we put Kate Bornstein on the cover of the Village Voice.

It’s one of our proudest moments during our five years at the Voice, and it was a real treat to spend time catching up.

Kate’s an avid reader of our Danny Masterson retrial coverage, and now that we’ve finished with testimony in the case (closing arguments are scheduled to take placed on Tuesday), we thought we’d check in.

We ended up having the tables turned on us as some really interesting questions about the trial came our way.
