Episode 118: Happy Motoring; Dangerous Living

This Episode explores the intersection between police brutality and car dependency. I use pieces looking at the biases and other problems of traffic enforcement, shift to police reform stories and touch on homelessness and then swing back to cars as a weapon and expression of supremacy over others with a wrap up by pointing out that the driving test, like most symbols of harm reduction within capitalism, are bullcrap.
