(Recorded 11/22/2016 in St. Anthony, MN) Co-hosts Andre and Brian discuss the upcoming holiday season and the potentially uncomfortable conversations that may come up between family and friends, given the recent tense political situation. Brian is exhausted after two weeks of post-election political discussions and confusion. It seems that the United States is divided. Andre offers some guidance to Brian on what to do next and how to interact with people who may appear to be opposite in many ways, even if that’s just a perception.
Andre expresses gratitude for Philando Castile’s name being cleared after the recent announcement by Ramsey County, MN prosecutor John Choi of three charges against Officer Jeronimo Yanez for the fatal shooting of Philando Castile.
