  1. I listened to them all except for the one on migration. Thanks for sharing this very interesting and informative collection of podcasts. The idea of a pig processing plant being an essential function and the company’s disregard for the lives of its workers as mirrored in the cruelty of the operations shows just how evil our empire is.
