Ep.#3 'Murica

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

On this episode the guys go full red white and blue, tackling the subject of the good ol' U.S. of A. Remember when, as a kid, the powers that be seemed like benevolent good guys, not money hungry con-men? We sure do. So what happened?
Is it more than just our personal station in life that makes us vote Democrat or Republican? And are we so fearful of the unknown that we can justify the inhumane treatment of undocumented immigrants?
We find out what ‘Murica means to some of our listeners in this episode’s Selling Out Sound Off.
And finally, Nate delves into the dark opus that is NIN’s the Downward Spiral. More specifically, what was the album’s impact on Nate as an awkward teen, on popular music, and on society as a whole?
