Propaganda, Skinheads, and Nutella; an interview with Christian Picciolini - Bonus Episode
In this special bonus episode, we are joined by Christian Picciolini co founder of the organization Life After Hate, and author of the book "Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead", which you can purchase here or anywhere you like to buy awesome books. This one is definitely worth the read, even if you never thought you would be reading about a skinhead and appreciating it.
We asked Christian to talk with us about propaganda and how it relates to fake news. We did just that, but we also dug in a little deeper and talked about what you can do to help respond to racism you see around you - and how programs like band and sports are so important for kids growing up.
We also discussed Christian's upcoming episode with Samantha Bee (!) on September 13th.
Yes, Beth and Elizabeth interviewed someone who has been interviewed by Samantha Bee.
We are still recovering.
Samantha Bee has been helping promote the crowd funding campaign up to help raise the 400K that Life After Hate had been approved for under President Obama. President Trump denied it. No reason was given.
We also got Christian to tell us about his not so secret love... Nutella.
It's a great discussion with some laughs thrown in - so take a listen and let us know what you think in the comment below!
