PPtB ep10 - This Is Us
It’s been a bit but the boys are back! No guest this episode so you get the pleasure of hearing Jason and Chad—which is just enough. The discussion centers around how folks “take to Twitter” when outraged and how this maybe isn’t the best measure of real-life. Social media has placed a big burden on law enforcement and often presents a skewed perspective. Of course, there are the usual segments and bacon for your enjoyment!
