The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman

The Weekly Stuff #165 - We Need To Talk About America

Episode Summary

In this special episode, we talk about the devastating results of the 2016 election, how it makes us feel, why we are scared, and what we are doing to cope. We will be back on Monday with a regular episode.

Episode Notes

Well, here is an episode we never expected to record.

But then again, we never expected our country to elect a racist, misogynist, fascist reality TV star as President. The world has been deeply shaken by what happened this week, and while this is not a political or current events podcast – and will not transform into one – Sean and I felt we could not ignore what just happened on our first episode back.

So on this week’s episode, we talk about it. We talk about the election, how it makes us feel, why we are scared, and what we are doing to cope. We talk through it all because we needed to get it off our chests – and at the end, we try to find some hope by discussing things we’re thankful for and things we’re looking forward to, both big and small.

We will be back again on Monday to our normal schedule, with another episode (already recorded) in which we discuss Doctor Strange, Hitman Episode 6, and much more. But for now, in this special episode, we need to talk about America.
