wow! excellent episode. I unsubscribed from The Daily months ago and only accidentally heard this. great job highlighting the nuances of a situation that's being described by many news sources in a cliched, one-dimensional way. what you've captured here is the complex and much more frightening truth about this week's crisis. time to subscribe again.

who cares where people are coming from? it's horrible to watch a city burn, lines of para military police firing tear gas, rubber bullets etc. at our citizens..but ya know whats worse ? watching cops murder without any fear of consequence..let it burn 🔥
