For decades, America has found itself embroiled in crisis after crisis, and at the moment it really feels like we’ve reached new levels of craziness. The Amazon is being cut clear, the oceans are full of plastic, mental health issues are on the rise, way too many people own way too many guns, and The Man can’t go a day without getting bombarded with information about NFTs (which he is staying far away from, by the way!). We delve into some serious topics today, but as you probably know by now, we pride ourselves on being positive, upbeat, glass-half-full guys, so we’ll never let these episodes get too dark and depressing, regardless of the subject matter. As you may also be aware, we’re not afraid to say things that are a little controversial because getting canceled is not high up on our list of worries, so we hope you’ll join us for the ride!
