The Show regularly checks in with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

President Donald Trump officially nominated federal judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court on Sept. 26, to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away a little more than a week ago. Since that nomination, the size and makeup of Judge Barrett’s family has been the subject of attention.

That’s something that has caught the attention of Phil Boas, editorial page editor of the Republic, and The Show spoke with him for more about what captured his interest.
