Lauren Ross of the Dispatches from the Underground collective gets down to talk about the impact and fall out from the progress of the “Me Too” campaign as it tears through Hollywood and beyond. We get some perspective on how misogyny has ravaged the brains of all bros all around us, how coercion and sexual assault still ravage our society and how brave women are battling back to give us all a taste of the beautiful world we could have where women are not constantly demeaned and disempowered. And we engage the insane idea that “Me Too” could ever go too far in our lifetimes.

Plus we listen to tunes from X, Rats in the Wall, The Interrupters, and Sister Munch.
