This episode is all rant. When the world went into a cosmic time out during the pandemic, every system started breaking all at once. The health care system, schools, and as we’ve seen in the past few weeks, the racism that this country has been built on.

When Amy Cooper weaponized her phone in Central Park, one of my old blog posts about the Weary Weaponizing of White Woman Tears started getting shared all over social media. I hadn’t even seen the news yet and I knew something was going on. Then as white people all over this country are being awakened to their privilege and fragility, there are still tears galore.

As always, much love to Chicago Recording Company, where I don’t currently record each episode, because, Covid-19, but they’re still helping me get these episodes sounding great and sent out to you!
