Episode 33 | 31?? How??
WHAT IS GOOD! It's been a while. This is the 33rd episode, NOT THE 31ST. I cannot believe I made this mistake but it is what it is. While I have your attention I've included a link to a cause that I think needs more funding and support.

But here are the links below: Crystal Mason's Petition: https://www.change.org/p/greg-abbott-pardon-black-woman-imprisoned-for-voting?signed=true Crystal Mason's GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/justice4crystal?fbclid=IwAR3Mzf33UXj4L0rmZltOUugi5UVSMUcA1VeEK4GwTIMj201Uu3U4sMb2n7s In this episode I talk about BLM and a good chunk of what's been going on lately around the world.

Care Package by Drake - Interlude Reviews!
I'm trying something a bit different today and I'm pulling up from 25ft with an album review! This week, I am reviewing Care Package by Drake. The project is a compilation of songs he has released over the years but have not found a home on official releases other than a couple tracks that made it on as bonus tracks. The songs were released over a span of 7 years and reflect the stylistic changes that Drake's music has taken over the years. These tracks serve as nostalgic markers throughout this decade and although, I have heard all of these tracks before, I was in for a surprise. This. Is. The. Second BEST. Drake album of all time. FACTS. How? Listen to this review to find out! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/naoto-wakabayashi/support
