Ep. 110: "Ghosting" & the Green New Deal
It's been a while since we had an episode where it was just the two of us. We've had a string of great interviews (which you should definitely check out!), but this week we're just sitting around chewin' the fat, as they say.
Primarily, we’re examining the Green New Deal that organizers are agitating for on the hill and in the streets. Also a prolonged discussion about the notion that millennials (BECAUSE WHO ELSE) have taken to "ghosting" on their employers because of a lack of social skills. YOUTHS!
We also discuss some news about Elon Musk facing a union drive at a Tesla factory, the horrific way the United States treats immigrants, and of course the Yellow Vest protests in France.
