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.

Dr. Seuss and his books have been in the news recently, as his family’s foundation announced it would stop publishing several of his books because they have either words or images that are offensive. Some critics have jumped on that decision, calling it another example of "cancel culture."

The Show spoke with Phil Boas of the Arizona Republic for about this, and how a prominent Arizonan has responded to this.
