SFR 502: An Uplifting Ending

–SFR is here again, and we’ve recorded for back to back weeks for the first time in what feels like months. But the more things change, the more they stay the same. Bobby holding a kid again.
–Okay, we can’t ignore it. The Trump impeachment inquiry is underway. We recap the basics of the story, and hope most everyone can at least agree that what the president did was wrong. But, should he be removed from office over it? Was the act severe enough (at least based on what we know now) to nullify the results of an election? We give our answers, and we hope you’ll contact us to give us yours.
–We despise Cancel Culture, and yet it has reared its ugly head again in the case of Carson King, a young man who raised millions for a children’s hospital, only to have his good deed tarnished by a reporter who dug up a couple inappropriate tweets he made around 8 years ago, when he was a teenager.
–The Des Moines Register reporter who helped “cancel” Carson King, is now out of a job after his own bad tweets were dug up. He seems to think he is the real victim as well.  Where does the madness end?!?
–Swedish teen Greta Thunberg becomes the face and voice of a climate movement, which is amazing. But Jason has serious concerns whenever adults task their children with the responsibility of being the leaders of a movement.
–We touch on how activists have to have more substance to their argument than just emotion. Know your facts, know your history, and at least know the science or mechanics behind what you’re being an activist for. Because your opponents probably will, and they’ll kick your ass if you aren’t careful.
–We end the show this week with a powerful and uplifting email from a listener who has been with us a lot longer than we ever knew. Listen, and hear Bobby and Jason not only be touched emotionally, but encouraged to keep evolving, growing, and challenging ourselves and others.

Friend, family member, possible werewolf. I co-host Strange Frequencies Radio, blog at Confidential Korbus, and generally walk among the weird. When I'm not doing busywork, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, my eyes glued to a glowing screen, or my ears tuned to The Ramones.
