Socialism & Misconceptions
Socialism is an often misunderstood political concept. And it's no wonder it gets a bad rap since there has been a lot of misinformation coming from our capitalist leaders since way back in the day. In the 1930s they started using communist as a form of insult, brandishing all activists and protestors as "Communist", pair that with people claiming to have socialist governments, like China, which in actuality are no where close to a communist society, and you have created a very scary aura around a system that is far less destructive than our current one. In this episode the Foley sisters, along with a special guest, discuss the ins and outs of socialism and the benefits it could offer to us as a society.

Black Lives Matter
The murder of George Floyd was a tragedy. It was not an isolated incident and it was not an accident. His was one on a long list of lives deliberately taken at the hands of police officers, and it is a clear, undeniable representation of what America is founded on: racism. It is time to stand up, and fight against this oppressive system that allows people of color to be beaten, and killed without repercussion. The Foley Sisters will continue to stand as relentless allies to the black community, and will continue to fight against the inherently immoral capitalist structure we've all been forced to live under. This week they are sharing a speech that was given at a protest in Oakland on June 1st.

#Metoo & Those That Already Knew
Harvey Weinstein being outed as a rapist and abuser, was merely the tip of the American rape culture iceberg.

What is perhaps even more shocking than the number of woman that have been sexual assaulted, is the number of people that know about these atrocities and do nothing to help the victims. Join the Foley sisters as they discuss the history behind the #metoo movement, what effect it's had, and why this system of violence against women exists.
