This week, we welcome back contributor Matt Ruby and, for the first time, new contributor Shalewa Sharpe to discuss ongoing issues in the so-called “gig economy” and Netflix’s recently released series, Dear White People. Also, Jacqueline Soller returns to discuss the recently released documentary, Get Me Roger Stone. And along the way, we hear from Radio Dispatch’s Molly Knefel with her take on President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey; we learn about a woman named Antonia, who began to believe in ghosts despite who own initial skepticism; and we get an early listen to an exclusive performance by Vagabon from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
