Brad and Dan begin by discussing the new Florida school curriculum that forces teachers to tell students that enslaved people received some benefit from their enslaved condition. Dan reports on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ claim that enslaved people would have been able to develop trade skills and other “personal benefits.”
In the second segment Brad outlines the controversy surrounding Jason Aldean’s song “Try That in A Small Town,” explaining why it’s code and what the history of lynching and other violence tells us about it.
In the final segment the hosts discuss the right-wing temper tantrums in reaction to the Barbie movie.
