hypothetical mothers' day
For the coulda, woulda, maybe-shoulda-but-the-right-to-choose-is-most-important mothers and others: We salute thee.The dreaded day is upon us: Roe v Wade is about to be overturned. It's a full on rant this episode. We look at how different groups latch onto the abortion issue, take a bat to the Supreme C0urt's brand, and advocate for change that goes beyond the acceptable channels of voting. Polithicc.All two of us at Hot Pocket are strong advocates of: "Stop sharing, stop tweeting, start spending and researching". No donating or supporting Democrats, try some of these instead.Indigenous Women Rising: https://www.iwrising.org/Yellowhammer Fund: https://www.yellowhammerfund.org/Access Reproductive Care Southeast: https://arc-southeast.org/Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund: https://www.msreprofreedomfund.org/*Please feel free to reach out to us if there's concerns about these any of these organizations, we're well aware that NGO's and non-profits can be dicey.
If you want to skip our ringside commentary jump to the 22 minute mark.Minimal effort or bold experimental episode? You decide. We chill and spill while watching the heavyweight title fight until a sudden KO forces us to shift gears. It gets weird.Hot Pocket weighs in on the Depp v Heard trial, and we explore the gender dynamics of assault and abuse. Speaking of lacking ladies: Saad recounts his many, MANY recent conflicts with annoying white women. God forgives, Saad don't.Finally: the lone wolf stalks the sheep............
I think it's America's turn to elect a celebrated athlete for head of state. Feeling good about OJ. Here comes Number 47, President Juice.Hot Pocket goes to its roots, trouble's brewin' in the motherland. Here's a 101 course on how Imran Khan got in and out of the Prime Minister seat. We make the case that this is a story about foreign meddling. America's unsavory history with the Pakistani military, the secret letter from the state department, and the falling value of the US dollar should raise some eyebrows. And then we kick Benazir Bhutto back down the glass ceiling. Our mantra stands: If you're in America, focus on what America's doing.
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh brothers and sisters. Prepare for brain farts, we're running on fumes. Returning from our week long sabbatical, we catch up on THE news: The Slappening. Is it important? No not really, but we'll get our licks in and make fun of everyone. We proceed to talk about Hot Pocket's first Ramadan: goal setting, worshipping with purpose, and fighting caffeine withdrawals is what we do.And we close things out with two brief articles for our "Dirty Laundry" segment. Roleplaying in the bedroom is cool until........
penitentiary & pals
All hypotheticals I tell ya, any similarities are unintended coincidences, all names will be redacted.Horrifying events have struck a friend of the pod, and this got us thinking about crime and the prison pipeline. It's hard to advocate for rehabilitative justice when the person of interest is a repeat criminal, but maybe we should still try. The boys offer their thoughts on alternatives to criminal sentencing and navigating the need for security without going full draconian.Complete 180 follows, we talk about crappy friends. What level of effort do you need to maintain a friendship? Do friendship breakups hurt the same as romantic relationships? How do you tell someone that you're not really that close?Rough patches and redemption arcs.
japanese cube test
Open wide the doors to your mind palace, the Psycho Soldiers are here.You're in a desert, you see a cube. Paint a picture for me. There's a ladder. What's it like? A horse, a flower, and a storm. Every story's a little different. All will be revealed, by you, for you.What can we figure out about a person from a series of random questions? What can we piece together based on their hobbies? The Psycho Soldiers brave the mental frontier and explore what makes us, us. We highly encourage you to follow along as we go.(Note: "Psycho Solider" is the name of the closing theme, it's the first song in a video game to ever include vocals. There's your history lesson you cretins)
