As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to escalate, the Mainline Podcast shifts gears to cover the human condition during this time to help promote healing, wellness, and understanding in our communities as everyone goes through a very confusing and insecure time. For now, we are putting politics aside to focus on community and support in an effort to help cultivate a better understanding and greater connection between one another. (Don't worry, even though it's not the primary focus, politics inherently become part of it, too.)

    Ep. 19: Joseph Guay

    This week, Aja catches up with political artist Joseph Guay, perhaps best known for his Border Wall exhibit in Atlanta, the "Missed Attendance" exhibit about the Parkland school shootings, or his "Remnants of the Human Condition" exhibit featuring a piece about Trayvon Martin. This interview was recorded following Ahmaud Arbery's shooting in Brunswick, Ga., in the county Joseph grew up, and was published a few days after George Floyd's murder by a police officer in Minneapolis. The two discuss the issue of police brutality, racism in America, and what individuals — particularly white people — should be doing in this fight for justice.
