We start by going through some of the fantastic Standing Rock protest songs that have been sent to us.
Then, Jene has an old photo from a vacation in Hilton Head involving his and Jerry’s families (circa 1970s) where Jerry is shirtless at the pool. Should it go up on the website? The audience votes.
Jene asks Jerry to tell how his social conscience began to form during his time at Tulane when he and other students went on busses in the South to register African American voters.
Jene remembers the time he worried for his safety advocating for equal rights at a Cincinnati pool, which ended up being closed.
Jerry’s thoughts this week are on Donald Trump, who, in his view, is not the voice of the people. When the American people were asked who they want to be president, by nearly 3 million votes they chose Hillary. So, he’s not the voice of the American people.
Note: Just in case there are young ears in the room, there are instances of profanity in this episode.
Our musical guest is Ariel Bui.
