On this episode of AirWreckRadio Stacey starts us off by apologizing to a listener he nearly met during the RochesterFreeRadio benefit concert held over the weekend. While he was at the benefit, Stacey noticed that the radio station has really upped its t-shirt and hats game, so… GO TO ROCHESTERFREERADIO.COM AND GET. THAT. MERCH!
In the news this week, Nike has chosen Colin Kaepernick as their star of the 30th anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign. For those who don’t recall (looking at you Jeff Sessions) Kaepernick is the NFL player who started the trend of taking a knee during the National Anthem in order to protest police brutality and systemic racism. In response to Nike’s choice, thousands of Papa Johns-eating, Keurigless dummies are burning their very expensive shoes and athletic wear. Sure, Nike’s use of slave labor is one thing, but supporting an athlete who uses his position to raise awareness about a very real issue that effects a large portion of the population? Stay in your lane Nike!
Also in the news, the boys share their thoughts on the passing of Senator John McCain, who, despite his well-known dislike of President Trump, still managed to vote in line with the Trump agenda nearly 85% of the time, was anti-marriage equality, anti-prison reform, and anti-legal marijuana during his entire 36 year political career.
Also, also in the news, Bob Woodward of Watergate fame, has published a new book called “Fear: Trump in the White House,” which chronicles many of the nasty rumors we’ve all heard in the news about what a big baby our current president is, and how his staff needs to take special care around our special boy.
Lastly, Stacey visited a brand-new, modern McDonalds and oh boy: it sucked! It was a completely unorganized disaster that seemed designed to cause confusion. If it was, it did. Tune in to hear about it!
