Episode 55. Women Deserve Choices with Merle Hoffman

Dirty Moderate with Adam Epstein

Open in playerListen on);
Dirty Moderate with Adam Epstein is a podcast showcasing the people who cut through the nails on a chalkboard din of the modern-day American political scene. We promote rigorous analysis and lively debate with individuals on both sides of the aisle and beyond. Our host, Adam Epstein, is a Tony Award-winning former Broadway powerhouse with a no-nonsense Ivy League Masters (Brown University Class of 2017 AM American Studies) who can go toe-to-toe with anyone on politics as he did on Trish Regan Primetime on FOX News every Thursday night in 2019 as the lone non-conservative panelist delivering his centrist perspective with grit, intellectual prowess, and undeniable charm. Past guests of the podcast like Author and Historian, Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Author, John Pavlovitz, and Correspondent, Trish Regan, and former Republican Strategist, Stuart Stevens, all range in perspective by design, and no two conversations are alike, but the one vitally important thing all of our guests have in common is they fight like hell for Democracy. • Produced by Blurry Cowboy Media • Theme Song by @brettgarrisonepstein • Subscribe to Substack at • Tweet the Show: @dirtymoderate
Episode details

In the ongoing and unbelievably still relevant fight for women to have the right to control what happens to their own bodies, we honor those who have successfully fought this fight, like the incredible, Merle Hoffman. Her organization, CHOICES, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Queens, New York having lead the charge in the fight for women’s rights, and  facilitating safe, compassionate, and confidential reproductive healthcare. Her work in the US and across the globe has been unrelenting  and continues stronger than ever today, as our country once again faces an influx of politicians wanting to control women’s bodies. Merle Hoffman proves to be more essential and relevant than ever in this ongoing fight for women’s human rights and we couldn’t be happier to have her as a guest on the show.

And don’t forget:,,! Get registered to vote if you’re not already and register your family, friends, neighbors, doctor, grocery store clerk, that twice removed cousin you only see once a year during the holidays. You can even help them figure out where they're nearest voting location is and when they can vote! Don’t be one of the 101 Million Americans who didn’t vote in 2020.
