Uvalde aftermath, police, and guns
Hello from a 24-hour layover!
Tammy returns from her travels and tells us about hanging out with cool Asians at the International Federation of Journalists conference in Oman.
Then, we discuss the latest on the Uvalde shootings and the increasingly outrageous reports that local police officers and government officials are bullying parents and evading even the tiniest bit of accountability. How does the Uvalde massacre bolster arguments for police defunding and abolition? Where does abolition intersect with calls for gun control? How pessimistic should we be about the right-wing deadlock of the national government?
Finally, an announcement from Andy and some reflections on the two years since the podcast began, roughly 133 episodes(!) ago.
