2022 gets off to a strange start with data scandals, pandemic madness, and fascists losing some foot holds, but not for the reasons they should! We’ll take the wins however we can get them! Learn about the garden party that might take down Boris Johnson, some weirdness in policing in the US and Germany, and how Novak Djokovic is making money on his anti-vaxxer stance and shedding a light on Australia’s immigration failings.  Hosted by Diana Arce (she/her), and Tina Lee (she/her) with Miriam Aced (she/her). Brought to you by Artists Without a Cause , Wählen Gegen Rechts and Migration Voter.
