Episode 8: Reservoirs of Hope
TW: Black Death, Violence, Police Brutality
This episode is a bit different than our normal procedures here at Earworm. We don't feel right taking timeline space away from the BLM movement during a time where we are so close to critical change in our communities, and instead of us two performing a play this week we have given our platform to five amazingly talented black artists who will be sharing their voices, words, and expression with us in this episode. Featured in this episode are: Cris Eli Blak, Brian Champion, James Demps, Gabriel Hannans, and Aladdin Demps. We hope that their work will be heard, and add to the growing voice for change. Below you will find links that we mention in the episode. These links are orgs that you can donate to, to help fight against systemic racism, the unjust prison/policing system, and to help protestors and members of BIPOC communities.
