On this week's episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon change things up and get serious about the Black Lives Matter movement, social justice, and holding ourselves, our friends, our co-workers, and damn near everyone we know accountable. We understand the importance of keeping this energy not just 'til the November elections, but every day.

Systematic oppression and institutionalized racism are two complicated forces that are difficult to fight, but we talk about the ways in which we've challenged ourselves to face them head-on. Noah opens up about his experiences as a young black man literally just trying to live, and the kind of fuckery people put up with on a regular basis just to ensure other people's comfort. And yeah — those days are done.
