UPDATE: We recorded this before the South Carolina debate and primary which are both before Super Tuesday.Also for Oregon, the Republicans walked out and have halted the session due to the Cap-n-trade bill. This will be further discussed in the next episode. Welcome to Reconstruction, the podcast. We are here to give you those wonderful updates on what’s happening in the world with an economic, political and historical background. Happy Black history month! We have a video of Ida B Wells up talking about one of the great first investigative journalists in America.

Episode 10 - Sanctions Part 1
Welcome back to Reconstruction, the podcast. Hopefully everyone made it out alive from their holiday vacation or days with family and friends. We’re back with a new episode for 2020, but don’t worry, before we blasted into this year with Australia on fire and war with Iran tipping ever closer to an all out world war 3, we have an old episode that we recorded at the end of 2019 that will be a nice close, refreshing our optimism for the year 2020. I mean knowing that a billion animals are dead but right-wing media is pushing lies that 200 people set fires in Australia because climate change doesn’t exist. If we could only wish this reality away. But we can’t.
