Same-sex marriage supporters rejoice after the U.S Supreme Court hands down a ruling regarding same-sex marriage outside the Supreme Court in Washington on June 26, 2015.

The House of Representatives last week passed legislation that would protect same-sex marriages at the federal level in response to Justice Clarence Thomas’s call for the supreme court to revisit same-sex marriage rights.

Today we are taking a look at the history and politics of same-sex marriage in the U.S.

Guests:

  • Stephanie Lai, reporter in the Washington bureau, New York Times
  • Sasha Issenberg, journalist and author of The Engagement: America's Quarter-Century Struggle Over Same-Sex Marriage
