Episode 100: Repair Our Race.


In episode 100 Ann, Becky and Dan discuss reparations for slavery. If Black people were to get reparations, what form should it be in? We know that 40 acres and a mule is unrealistic, but what isn’t unrealistic is opportunity. We share our thoughts on what we think would help repair our community and why money may not necessarily be the best thing.

Ann and Dan take different stances on who should be criminally liable in this case.

Episode 93: Gone Fishing!


This week Dan and Becky talk about police questioning minors. Dan has been arrested numerous times as a minor and he’s never once had a parent or an attorney in any of his interrogations. He was often propositioned with what you’d hear on typical cop TV shows, “tell us what we want and you can go home.” Voluntarily offering information to the police in order to go home always comes at a price. Dan also talks about not knowing his rights as a young teen and not fully understanding the Miranda rights. Dan highly recommends teaching children to know how to ask for an attorney and to NOT voluntarily speak to the police unless they’re victims of a crime.
