45 - Red State Blue State

May 11, 2020

This week the gang catches up after taking a much needed break for work and play! We discuss how Kerala, India is absolutely dominating coronavirus with one simple trick: communism! Governor Amazon Cuomo is using the pandemic in classic shock-doctrine fashion to sell us all to Google and Microsoft. NY State legislature is working on a bill that would prohibit law enforcement from gathering information on civilians’ documentation status, and the Mayor of Flavortown is using his big flaming heart to help out hospitality workers. Enjoy Chapter 13 of The Conquest of Bread!
