Hey, thank you for listening. This episode is with Asterios Kokkinos, it was recorded a while ago before the protesting started. I didn’t know whether to scrap it or just post it quietly, but I have a few other episodes I recorded before the protests started as well, and I want to release them all. If listening to podcasts gives you a respite as it does me, please enjoy – Asterios is an incredibly genuine and funny dude who puts out great content. We talk about his podcast The Loudest Podcast, weight loss, him wrestling a friend of mine in the street in college, and a bunch more.
I hope you fully support these protests and fully support Black Lives Matter. If you don’t, don’t listen, I don’t really fuck with you. I truly hope for the abolishment or at least defunding of police forces across the country. Police forces are completely non-essential and their unimpeded murdering of black people with impunity is despicable. If you're a white person listening to this please speak about this wherever you can, and if you have disposable income, send it to some of the Black Lives Matter organizations and bail funds in the episode description. Continue to support the protests. Black Lives Matter.
