Episode 104 - Stereotyping, Pluralism, Southern Accents, and Standing Rock: How Do We Stand With the Oppressed and Marginalized?

In Episode 104, Keith and Justin get a bit heavy by talking about a wide range of topics. Justin starts off the podcast by talking about the nuances between Southern and Bostonian accents, and how people often judge according to how you speak. Then, the conversation drifts towards pluralism, and Justin gives his many thoughts about the benefits and pitfalls of modern-day pluralism. Then, it's Keith's turn, as he takes the mic to talk about the protests happening at Standing Rock by the Sioux tribe, as well as our various responses to the pipeline project. Then, the conversation spirals into a diatribe about how we treat those who are different that us, as well as what we (as straight, white, middle-class men) can do to offer solidarity and support to those who are oppressed and marginalized. This show gets heated, so be sure to listen. In the beginning, Justin talks about the traffic in Boston, as well as some other differences between Boston and North Carolina. As always, Keith is joined once again by Darcy Rumble from Giants in the Sound as they talk about Memphis May Fire's new album, The Light I Hold, and their mixed reactions about it. I (Justin) was also told that there are some jabs at me during that segment since I wasn't there, so be sure to listen for that as well! In the end, the guys wrap up the show by giving their final thoughts on this episode. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast. Let us know what you think!
