ABOUT THIS EPISODE
This podcast supports antifa -- end of discussion. “A bloo bloo bloo,” you might say in response, “My norm’s and notion’s of respectability!” We don’t care. People who put their bodies and livelihoods on the line to face down fascism are heroes and deserve our support. Francis and Nate discuss the recent protests in Portland, the truth to the refrain that cops and fascists work together, and a little digression about internet atheism’s total interchangeability with xenophobia.
