Lots of great music on today's ep! Tune in for Eels, Mr. Ben & The Bens, Henriette Sennenvaldt and more. Plus, I share some thoughts on shopping small and supporting businesses that really benefit from you shopping with them. Here are some links to make supporting minority owned businesses a little easier. These links are just starting points, by no means exhaustive, but I hope they help.

After struggling to finish high school, Antonina took a break from her education to work on herself. Despite the lack of support she got at that time, she knew it was the right move for her. Now four years later, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Antonina decided she was ready to attend college and is glad she waited until she was in the right mindset to begin.
Mid-month and according to the world outside it's a COVID filled holiday wonderland. Tracks to get through the day from Field Medic, Weekend Lovers, Emmy the Great, and more! Also, you can listen to the Hip Hop Show from Wayne Ski here for his tips on how to avoid confrontation this holiday. Below are some links in the event that confrontation can't be avoided. We don't all have that one uncle who makes racists/sexist/homophobic jokes, but a lot of us do and being that election season STILL isn't over, this could be a politically charged holiday coming up.
