Memorial Day live stream (audio only) – Ep 69

Memorial Day has become a holiday that is farcical and cheap; while it may honor deceased veterans in a NFL playoff game sort of way, what does all the fanfare and bright lights mean?  How do discounts at Home Depot or free meals at Applebee’s honor veterans?  If our nation is destined to continue regime change at its current pace, does the president leaving a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, among the graves of thousands of fallen troops, really dignify the sacrifices present there?  

For Memorial Day this year, we decided to do something different.  On Memorial Day, we held a panel as a live episode of the podcast.  We invited some of the loudest voices among the anti-war movement to share with you our thoughts on service and sacrifice, here in 2020.  If you’re looking to hear a particular participant, click the time link next to their name and it’ll take you right there in the episode.
