Good episode? Give it some love!
Well, this is a nice way to start 2021. We had a whole "Welcome to the New Year" episode recorded where we recapped 2020 and talked about what we were expecting this year. But then white privilege took over Washington D.C. So, this week we speak on the mob of #45 supporters who stormed the capitol building as the U.S. Senate confirmed Joe Biden's presidential election.
2:00 - Branden and Reese begin to try to unpack what just happened. Branden describes it as "racist with guns, storming the business place of racists with suits."
5:00 - Maurice speaks on how this event and the energy behind it has been brewing for at least 8 to 12 years. Branden doubles down Trump going down as one of, if not the worst president in U.S. history.
8:15 - Maurice wonders how much of this event was an "inside job" as the rioters seemed to be prepared to not only show up in protest, but break into the capitol building, confront law enforcement and rummage through office desks. 
10:40 - Branden and Maurice speak on the power of words and how "coup" should not be thrown around so haphazardly. Maurice also challenges more white people to stop keeping secrets and callout the brazenly white people they know.
18:00 - Maurice and Branden question what these white "protestors" were actually protesting. They also wonder what happens after Trump officially leaves office and where him and his supporters will migrate to.
26:20 - Branden and Maurice talk about the passing of MF DOOM and share some of their favorite moments of his career.
