3. SCOTUS and gerrymandering
Time is ticking away on the Supreme Court calendar and today the justices are expected to hand down more decisions. Among the big ones we're still waiting for, whether gerrymandering is protected under the constitution. Galen Druke with our partners at FiveThirtyEight explains what gerrymandering is, why it's taken so long for a decision and what all the possible outcomes are.
4. #MeToo and 'nerd culture'
The so-called "nerd industry" -- where comics, video games and TV shows about zombies net billions of dollars every year -- is having its own #MeToo conversation amid new allegations of abuse against a mega-celebrity in that world, Chris Hardwick. The "Talking Dead" host and "Nerdist" founder has denied the claims his former girlfriend made online, but Inverse's Mary von Aue tell us about the larger issue -- how "nerd culture" treats women.
