7 - All Cats Are Beautiful

August 12, 2019

The gang gets a welcome radio transmission from the future, and have our friend and comrade Caroline Nagy (@carolinenudge) on to discuss the recent DSA National Convention (https://capitaldistrictdsa.org/).

Afterwards we reel from the sudden death of billionaire-child-rape-ring-leader Jeffrey Epstein, and marvel at our near-constant feeling of unsurprising shock with that we dub "pikachu-face."

We check in with the Democratic primary, and discuss Columbia Development and disgraced developer / rat Joseph Niccola's most recent shenanigans in Troy (https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Nicolla-back-in-spotlight-with-220K-tax-break-ask-14284539.php)

Our wildflowers this week is all about healthy happy cats! Meow!

On this, our latest prime-numbered episode of Ironweeds we discuss Epstein's continued descent into getting what he deserves, why community is either a marketing ploy or a white supremacist rhetorical tool, the decriminalization of weed in NY state, and for our wildflowers segment we talk about our National Orgasm Day plans.

The gang reacts to news about Epstein (spoiler: it's not good folks), Chris makes excuses for his recent political defeat, David chronicles the attempts to make Troy a Sanctuary City, Brit tells us about Wal-Mart unionizing via Reddit, and the gang shares its hopes of discovery when our comrades successfully take Area 51.
