like the carefree banter - mostly.

i appreciate the scattered range of topics and rambling fluidity of conversation. however, in the paella episode your describing the Allman brothers as a “racist band” stepped out of bounds as it happens to be untrue, and is not specifically a funny comment or generally a helpful one. duane allman was a session musician at the muscle shoals recording studio in alabama, which was famous in spite of the fact musicians of colour backed white musicians and vice versa. duane allman encouraged wilson pickett to cover “hey jude” and the collaboration broke, or at least made a good run at, racial barriers of the time. there is a good doc on muscle shoals if you are interested. the confederate flag, and all monuments to the confederacy, can be taken and are used by some as a proxy for racism, but this is not necessarily so. musicians like tom petty used the confederate flag in his shows - as a symbol of rebellion more than anything else - and later apologised for any reference to racism that may have been implied where he meant none. i am sorry if this comes across as hectoring, but given the importance of the subject racism is not a term to throw around lightly, or thoughtlessly - today as ever - and if, like Petty, your gesture was not intended to cause harm, i think it’s better to bring this up than to say nothing at all.
