*This is not an episode*

My intentions are not to take credit for anything that happened at this event. This is the most effective way to host a large audio file.

That being said.

Yesterday something amazing happened at the State Capitol and I captured both the audio and video and I will donate edited professional footage to the speakers soon. I know that we live in a 24-hour news cycle many have already formed opinions and conclusions without 1st person knowledge of just exactly what was said. This audio file is for everyone that couldn't be there.      

To the speakers      

Thank you for inspiring us all, I will put together the videos as soon as I can.  

Shout out to Ryan Capranica for the awesome photos

With mounting tensions around the country and an election that has devastated millions, there’s a greater call for peace, unity, and collaboration. We need to stand together to outwardly and peacefully denounce the divisions and hate-mongering that could tear us apart.


Meet on the Capitol lawn in front of the Lincoln Statue to march* downtown, letting your voice be shared among others from all walks of life and demographics.


On Saturday, the 19th, at 2PM, let it be known that you take a stand against racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, classism, censorship, and hate of ANY kind, and that you stand for acceptance and respect of all.


Together, we can move forward.
