In This Episode:
Weer’d is on vacation again, this time in New England, so Erin is once again in charge of the episode, this time with co-host Oddball. Erin also cut all the audio to make it sound pretty despite some significant hurdles, so please tell her what a good job she did.
- Erin and Oddball contemplate why the media overplays tragedies to the point of dancing in the blood of the dead;
- Weer’d fisks David Hogg’s attempts to increase gun control laws in Maine, of all places;
- In Gun Lovers and Other Strangers, our David (no relation) details the etiquette for selling a gun from his perspective as a gun shop employee;
- and Oddball talks about a pet peeve of his: when gun owners “flex on the poors.”
