This was a hard show this week. On the one hand, we felt like what do two white guys have to say on the topics of white supremacy and police brutality? On the other hand, we didn’t want to ignore the world around us. We certainly do not have any answers. Check our references for more useful people to listen to and read. If you do listen, please give us feedback. Thanks to Joe Schine for Art, and Drake Stafford and Cullah for music.
