Ep 90: Reaching the Masses

This time we tackle media literacy with articles about the NYTimes specifically, and then the media landscape generally and how capitalism/profit-making keeps the people uninformed as the facts we revere are usually behind paywalls. Then we cover the ways police reform is being stalled by establishment forces. In the 2nd hour we speak to Sierra Brooks of Ohio to discuss Midwest outreach and then devolve into various conversation from Roman comparisons, to drive through convenience stores.

Music used: Nothing recedes like Progress by Antiflag
