Summary

In this episode we discuss some of the most polarizing issues that are being discussed in America. First, we dive into the #BlackLivesMatter movement and discuss certain aspects of it that we disagree with and also certain things that have some merit. We compare this with the opposing view of #BlueLivesMatter and go into how the real answer may not be on one side or another.
We finish the show by talking about some other issues in the media such as issues in the transgender community and the nation’s response to these issues.
