The Brewmance podcast. Restoring Civility One Sip At A time.
Mike Russell & Rob Hunter believe they can solve problems and disagreements over a beer. On this podcast episode Mike & Rob talk about the brilliance of Dave Chappelle after watching his new Netflix special, Sticks & Stones. Chappelle has a special gift challenge societal norms while making us laugh.
During the stand-up act Chappelle slams ‘cancel culture.’ Here he is referring to the social media movement where people attempt to silence disagreeable voices. Media coverage after Sticks & Stones proves his point as several media outlets called Chappelle out of touch. Vice News went as far as to say you shouldn’t bother watching.
This is America in 2019. Everything is wrong. Everything is outrage. Everything must be silenced. Mike & Rob discuss the downfalls of silencing voices you don’t agree with.
This week it’s Mason Ale Works (San Diego, CA) Beachcomber Hazy IPA. Mike & Rob rate and review it for you and puts it on The Brewmance Beerometer.
At the same time is Arizona’s Supreme Court creating a special exemption for some beliefs over others. There was a religious freedom case where the owners of an art shop didn’t want to be forced to make wedding invitations for same-sex couples because of their sincerely held religious beliefs. The court agreed with them.
