057 Juan Snow, Taking the Brown

In this episode, I rant about walls. The government neared shutting down because of the Border Wall, but what's in a wall? Do they really work? How crazy is it that we annexed what was once Mexico, fought a war over it, promised dual citizenship, reneged on the promise, use Mexicans as cheap labor, blame them for our troubles, and then tell them we want to build a wall that won't really work? Beyond physical walls, we have the metaphorical walls that we construct to make sense of the world- us vs them, red team vs blue team, Coke vs Pepsi... But when will we learn to drop all our walls and accept that we are all just people?
