Apple Podcasts description: "In this episode, Megan and Destini reflect on the last couple of months. These past few months have been traumatic and draining, to say the least with COVID-19 putting the world on pause and with the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Tayler, Elijah McCain, and unfortunately, the list goes on. This harsh reality for unarmed black people continues and as two black women, Megan and Destini are trying to find answers."
Episode description: "It's a rather common narrative that we've heard amongst young liberals: "You need to vote," "If you don't vote you're ignorant," and many more condescending statements about individuals who don't have a positive relationship with the American system. We shed light on young Black voters and their thoughts during the 2020 election. We're lacking sympathy... and that may cost this election as young democrats."
