Episode 70: Why Did NPR's "Code Switch" Join The Pileon Against An Innocent Palestinian-American Businessman?
After Katie describes how she and Jesse had their First Amendment rights literally murdered by an NYC venue and Jesse provides a weird update to last week's Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie/Akwaeke Emezi episode, the hosts talk about some reparations-related drama at Seattle's Pride and "Code Switch"'s strange decision to join the pileon against Majdi Wadi, a Palestinian-American businessman who did nothing wrong.
