Why, Tho? Season 1 Trailer
Season 1 coming July 16, 2020 Donate to the podcast here. Have you ever looked at the photo of Justin Trudeau kneeling in protest of his own government and felt your eyes automatically roll? Have you ever found yourself still fuming that the judges on Rupaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 called Shea Coulee’s 3-in-1 look “crafty”? We have! Alicia Elliott is the author of the bestselling book A Mind Spread Out on the Ground as well as an avid supporter of many makeup and weed brands. Gregory Evans is a radicalized barista who conquers every RPG he touches. Each week, we’ll be looking at one political story and one pop cultural story and asking the most philosophical of all questions: Why, tho?
