#110 – Dang Tangfastic

Nick and James return after a short and unplanned break with renewed internet and rekindled anger at the world.

No real shownotes this week, because we only talk about really obvious popular culture, and Nick has to take the boys to the childminder at some ridiculous time in the morning.

That John Ehrlichman quote in full:

“We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana & blacks with heroin, & then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities…
Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

#107 – Not Being Racist

Nick and James are crammed into a very cosy space, and Nick is slowly succumbing to a very coldy nose. Also, James makes some room in his life for his PS4, and Nick does some advertising.
