  Today, Ray Graf and Joe Donahue speak with Commentator and activist Libby Post about yesterday's SCOTUS decisions on DOMA and Prop 8 and then, in the second half of the hour, we speak with Times Union reporter, Jimmy Vielkind, about the NY Legislative session.

We've seen two historic rulings today from the U.S. Supreme Court concerning gay marriage - the striking down of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and a ruling clearing the way for same sex marriages to resume in California.

WAMC's Ray Graf spoke with Lynn Faria, deputy executive director with Empire State Pride Agenda, for reaction to the decisions.
