Episode 86 – Suck My Ass SCOTUS
In this very angry episode, Rob shoves off the mission for a calmer, less shouty road for the road previously taken. After calmly diving into a few topics shared in the feedback portion of the program, which covers sexism and veganism in a couple of ways, Rob begins unloading both barrels at recent SCOTUS decisions regarding buffer zones and freedom of speech, plus the violence they now attribute to protected speech, to the more pressing decision on Hobby Lobby and health insurance coverage of reproductive care needs for women and the inequality the misogynistic ruling acts to further. Rob also looks at the Facebook study that was recently published and the unethical, underhanded approach they took and lack of trust that makes emotional contagion a dangerous concept, all the while drawing parallels to other animals being used unwillingly as test subjects and how our outrage should really be focused on all animal testing, for human and non-human animals alike.
