TWs: white processing, discussions of terrorism, brief mentions of sexual assault
In this week’s episode, Raechel & Melody are in the same room (!!!) to talk about being together, process some deep call-out issues around being a bit too heavy on our “woke white” personas, and analyze some of the week’s saddest news. It is not an uplifting episode, but it will hopefully give you a critical framework to reflect upon currents events regarding deportation, white supremacy, & terrorism.
Raechel brings it hard this week, so listen up. *insert fire emoji here*
