#1646: A F'd Up Cornucopia Of Resentment
This week we’re checking in with Baratunde Thurston, Raquel Cepeda, Anna Holmes, and documentary filmmaker and reporter Fazeelat Aslam to get a handle on how everyone’s feeling and reacting to the spike in hate crimes and harassment in the wake of Trump’s election, as well as the media’s already-beginning normalization of his incoming administration. Please note: we’ll be taking next week off for Thanksgiving, but we’ll be right back with you the following week.
