    The “Confessions of a Former Bastard Cop” is really powerful evidence and explanation of how much needs to change for anything to change.

    “Confessions of a Bastard Cop”- A very.very long time ago I was engaged to a detective. Much of the internal rot, training issues, sheep/wolf/sheepdog characterizations, etc. the article revealed sounds like the troubling circumstances my fiancee would tell me. When he’d have cop buddies over, I’d have to leave the room as their one-upmanship was stomach-turning. Ultimately-after we broke up- he left the police force.

    Hello Kim France! In case you hadn’t seen, just wanted to add a recent news event to your entry on “Systemic racism: musical theater edition.”

    From June 12, 2020, “Major theater companies across the country, including the Center Theatre Group and the Geffen Playhouse in LA, took to social media saying they stand with people of color and support the fight for equality. But many Black actors, directors, and other theater workers say they’re tired of empty promises, and demand real change. In a letter addressed to ‘White American Theater,’ a collective of Black, Indigenous, and people of color theatermakers called for major structural change to address white supremacy on and offstage.”(https://www.kcrw.com/news/shows/press-play-with-madeleine-brand/homeless-report-cops-pies/theater-race-nataki-garrett)

    Tally’s film is wonderful! I am well over 40 but have enjoyed your blog for several years.
    And now loving the podcast – always smart, funny and genuine. You and Tally are a great team.

    Tally, I really enjoyed your video. It resonated me with me as I am terrified of death as well and have terrible health anxiety as a result.

    It also resonated with me as I grew up in Ottawa and can’t believe your mother refused to wear a winter hat!

    “Systemic,” not “systematic.”
