Thriving in Dystopia

Ep48: Decompressing White People and Police Abolition #millionlittleexperiments #onlyburgerstandintown

May 17, 2021

The show starts by sneaking in a Did You Know about movies.  The Crew then discusses reactions to the Oscars.

The brothers attended a “web thing” called White People and Police Abolition earlier in the week, and the main topic of the show is debriefing this.  The event brought in Mariame Kaba, whose work the Crew discussed back in episode 6. The topics that the Crew dives more into are digital land acknowledgments, language around defund/abolition, the idea of a million little experiments, police as the one burger stand in town (and not very good burgers).
