Our Sponsors 

JESUS PANCAKE is a new 9-episode audio drama series from Artist Soapbox. Microwaves, family secrets, and the Potential of a Pancake converge in this zany dark comedy about a woman reckoning with her power for the first time. This irreverent series is not really about Jesus ...or pancakes.

What We're Listening To 

From Us:
  •  70 Million released episode 8, "Why Policing our Schools Backfire", which explores the effectiveness of using School Resource Officers to help with routine discpline. For many children, especially those with disabilities, a law enforcement response to their behavior can lead to the school-to-prison pipeline. Reporter Claire McInerny tells one family’s story in Texas.
From Others:
  • Proof: A True Crime Podcast debuted earlier this year, and has already had some major real-world impact. The show unearthed new evidence in the 1996 shooting of 15-year-old Brian Bowling, exposing the false grounds on which two Georgia teenagers were convicted for the murder. Those now-43-year-old men have been exonerated thanks to the spotlight Proof shone on the case.
