On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, sparking an unprecedented series of nationwide protests against police brutality.

This is a great podcast and it may have its bias but it shows it honestly and gives a real world account of the protests in Portland

Disappointing. I thought this would be an impartial detailing of how and what happened in Portland. Instead, it is a clearly biased narrative. Not what I've come to expect from y'all.
