    This is a preview of an episode available only to Patreon subscribers. Show notes to this episode, if we decide to do any, will eventually be available to Patreon subscribers at patreon.com/champagnesharks.



    This is double-length episode hosted by T., who is doing it solo. T. discusses his thoughts on what social media is doing to our brains, and how it leads to horrible results like Black women who call Black men "bullet bags" (as seen here: https://twitter.com/gIossiergirl/status/1210265805352570880) or revel in telling Black men "the police ain't killing you n****s fast enough," which is a recent trend among a weird subset of Black people on twitter
