086 Planet Blak and Yellow w/ Niles Abston

My guest this episode is comedian Niles Abston, who has an animated project he’s working on called, Planet Blak, a stoner sci-fi comedy about a young black man who’s been recruited to sell weed for aliens. We discussed how he was inspired by the harsh drug laws of his home state of Mississippi and then we have a great conversation about the War on Drugs, America’s history of war in Asia, Black and Korean relations, and how despite the differences between people, most of us are our here just struggling to survive. We are actually more unified than separate, sometimes. There are no real answers here, just two comics asking questions and making white people uncomfortable.
