Links and Show Notes

We record episodes weeks in advance, so this episode has no mention of the recent protests across the United States and wider world. However, we wholeheartedly support #BlackLivesMatter and the ongoing fight for Black freedom. There will be some interesting discussion of the history of imperialist looting coming soon—in the meantime, we recommend that you listen to podcasts like The Whitest Cube and Art Accordingly to learn more about art and protest, and to take time today to find your own way to help.
