Dreaming of a representative #democracy w/ @ParkerMolloy — #KatieSpeakShow Ep97 07/15/2017

In brief: My good friend Parker Molloy is back on the show! We pause to talk about how we’re doing and how we’re dealing with the state of things before considering what a true representative democracy would look like. Spoiler: MORE identity politics, MORE facts, & MORE civil rights.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
