Welcome Nick Pressley, Role Model For Resiliency Over Crime and Incarceration. Also, Nursing Homes, and the Fetterman Ad. A Game about Petitions! (s3e30)
/

Jordi, Dwayne, and Nathan welcome Nick Pressley on the show! After some introduction banter and housekeeping, we get to hear a little bit more about Nick’s story. Then, each host gives their headlines for the week — Dwayne talks about COVID and vaccines, Jordi talks about systemic racism and the PADems judicial endorsements, and Nick talks about the murder of Osaze Osagie by police officers in State College and the DA’s lackluster investigation into wrongdoing. Next, we do a quick COVID related conversation about how we can strengthen our health care system (particularly as it relates to nursing homes). Taylor pops in and runs a game about petitions that goes over some common “do’s and don’t’s”. Last on the agenda is looking at the John Fetterman For Senate announcement video and commenting on our feelings on it.
