SE 12 Ep 12 Getting Some Things Off My Chest

In this episode I talk about my reaction to Hillary Clinton running again. I also talk about my hatred of neoliberalism. I also mention local politics and how Vice Mayor Brown surprised me with a vote after a progressive grassroots campaign. I harken back to my Occupy ambitions and what I would like to see on both the local and national level. I briefly mention some radio production stuff and how as a friend pointed out no one starts out a professional right out of the gate. It takes years of training and experience to get to the professional level. And, even after 12 years I may not be quite there yet. Lastly I mention The Justice for Desmond Campaign and how and why I didn’t call 911 when I was in a mental health crisis last week.
