This week, the South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee removed exceptions for rape and incest from the infamous “heartbeat bill,” which has already passed through the South Carolina House and, if passed by the Senate, will be signed into law by Gov. Henry McMaster who promised to sign it if it comes across his desk.
Though radio dramas are often associated with a quaint nuclear family sitting in the living room in the mid-20th century, today audio dramas are flourishing on podcast platforms, which is a real benefit to students.
