    Free Game: I "Allow" You To Stay In My House

    One thing my parents made clear to me, is that allowance is a privilege. We don't have to give you money for just existing. And everything you have, at any moment can be taken back because it was never yours. Let's talk about Eminent Domain.

    Crimea River: Don't Start Something You Can't Finish

    When acting big and bad, one must remember, if you start something, you better be absolutely sure you can finish it. Just because someone avoids fighting, don't mean they don't know how to fight. I think Vlad may have bit off more than he can chew.

A fantastic style of education

The premise of this show is excellent: “If you understand the streets, you can understand politics.” As someone who grew up in Tacoma, WA in the 90’s, this resonates all over the place. Prop dispels the opacity of electoral politics and geopolitics and transposes the dynamics of urban living onto a macro scale, and does it in a way that’s accessible and conversational. To code switch a bit: Prop paints a clear picture of what the starched up old people that run the world are motivated by, because those motivations are no different than people who spend their time just trying to get by. Just because your education wasn’t dressed up in the fancy stuff doesn’t mean you’re dumb. People be people.

From the real life Hilary Banks

As an Afro brasileira who grew up in oak cliff (that’s a hood part of Dallas for those of you who aren’t familiar with TX… specifically the latinx part of oak cliff) this podcast is so necessary. My closest friend is from Compton so when discussing world events we don’t relate to the lack of seasoning and diversity we see in media , nor the unnecessary celebrity updates with a sprinkle of actual news from gossip blogs. This podcast however, is exactly what needs to be heard . Muito bom! Tchau

Wild last interview

Tell this dude that Biden just got one year in office. And Kanye is a rapper. Talk with someone who pays attention to politics. Hit me up and we can have a real chat. Me and my homegirl started new podcast. Would love to chat. I love the show. Keep it going.
