Sinisterhood was right

The Hero Maker Podcast rules.

Can’t leave religion out of it

One of the hosts keeps pushing her christianity, it’s so unfortunate

help im frustrated ,

Thank you Jen

Love this pod cast but I was a little disturbed to hear Andrea’s criticism of cops in riot gear. I have never seen a cop dressed inappropriately (ex: in riot gear for a community meeting). I do see cops in riot gear patrolling large events and given the current climate, that makes me feel safer at these events. I have a son who has served his country for the last five years and will be leaving the military and pursuing a career in law enforcement. As a mom a feel that he needs to be “decked out” in the latest safety equipment that is appropriate for where he will be working. These men and women are thrown into situations that are very unpredictable and they need to be protected. I can’t help but wonder if Andrea’s child were getting ready to go into law enforcement that her ideas of protecting the men and women that are protecting us are protected in the best way possible. Thank you Jen for standing up for this.
