For this episode, Scott is joined by Breya Johnson. Breya is the Education Co-Chair for the Black Youth Project 100, an abolitionist organization for Black youth engaged in intersectional advocacy. What would happen if we "prohibited" law enforcement in its current iteration? Breya and Scott discuss the “Defund the Police” movement, and explain why the movement for prison, jail, and police abolition must be rooted in a anti-racist, feminist, perspective which rejects imperial-racist-capitalist-ableist-cis-ableist-hetero-patriarchy.
For the season 2 premiere, Scott was joined by Sam Chapman, the Campaign Director for the Oregon Psilocybin Therapy ballot initiative campaign. If enacted by voters this November, it would create a system where adults over the age of 21 would be able to access psilocybin in a controlled setting where they would be guided by licensed psilocybin caregivers
