TW: this episode contains discussions about rape and sexual assault; listeners who do not want to engage with those topics may want to start at about 25 min in.
In episode 25 (!), Melody and Raechel talk about what’s been happening in the headlines. Through a discussion of recent headlines regarding Brock Turner and Nate Parker, we talk about rape culture, race, and the prison system. Through a discussion of Colin Kaepernick, we talk about patriotic propaganda and what it means to dissent in America. And through a discussion of Drake, we discuss cheesecake and misogynist music video history. Plus, the radical (often-untold) history of Labor Day (and May Day), our RWLs of the week, and more!
