OK catches up with fan favorite fourth mic Joey De Jesus (@DeJesusSaves) to talk Pride month, gossip about NYC local elections/budget woes, and the trap of Puerto Rican statehood. Would you join the Queer liberation army? There’s gonna be sparkly maces involved! Also we’re leaning into groomer, it’s gonna be a whole problem. The establishment dems are ruining the parades and forging their ballot signatures, gotta hate being stuck in this garbage party! Putting another big trigger warning for serious gun violence during the last part of this episode.
A return to definitely a type of form, the Galleria caucus of Art and Labor (OK and Sarah) reckon with the eternal struggle of Knowing They Did A Gentrification To Bushwick. You, reader, however, are now yourself trapped in my web, unable to stop passively reading this sentence, which is that Kylie Minogue always has at least a couple songs on each album that sound like Starburst commercials, at least one absolute banger, and a bunch of shit. Aphrodite, however, is an entire album of Starburst commercials, and it’s a perfect driving album for the woman on the go with a cracked windshield and dangerously (but also sexily) corroded brake pads. We mostly, however, talk being abolitionists in the face of hateful tragedy like the Rash arson and debrief on the 7th annual Sonic 2006 party. If there was anyone in the north Brooklyn who deserved to be set aflame that night, it was probably us, sorry to all who attended. I also tell the same exact story I did last time I recorded about my sister getting hit by a Tesla, it’s a real meat and potatoes episode folks, we aim above all other things to be your comfort characters.

Hey friends! Send your confused relatives #8toAbolition. The best the democrats can do is pretend to ban chokeholds, it’s sickening. We must counteract the Deray-ification of activism, support longstanding anti-gentrification tenants rights orgs in your neighborhood. We talk about all that stuff plus the tricky balance of participating in the protests and staying safe from the second covid wave as well as the disagreements between the more communist or more anarchist wings of the left (and I GUESS the social democrats and liberals).
