Stand Up! with Pete Dominick


Stand Up is a full length show similar to what we did on SIRIUSXM. We will talk about issues that matter to you, your health, the health of your family, community, country and planet. And we will laugh while we do it. I plan to try up load at least 3 shows a week. Mon, Weds and Friday and then move as fast as I can to be daily.

Yesterday after hearing the Verdict I wanted to hear from you so I scheduled a last minute zoom hang  for Stand Up Subscriber's and it was so good I made it today's episode. Special thanks to Public Defender Barksdale Hortenstine Jr for showing up and helping us get educated.
 
I hope you enjoy todays show and thanks for being there last night.
 
Barksdale Hortenstine, Jr. is an attorney, mental health advocate and the Director of the Mental Health Unit with the Orleans Public Defenders. His primary drive focuses on the intersection of the criminal legal system and understanding of mental health issues within our communities. The first of its kind, the Mental Health Unit works to increase the quality of representation and available treatments for poor people. As a public defender, Barksdale represents and advocates for hundreds of New Orleanians each year, seeking to humanize and bear witness to the daily injustices of the criminal legal system.
 
He is a graduate of Emory University Law School and went to LSU for his undergraduate degree. He lives in New Orleans with his much smarter wife and two daughters.
