Unrelated...with Ato and Chris

Two life-long friends. One black, one white. We talk about random stuff, goings-on in the world, and try to understand why we don't understand. Mainly we discuss how screwed up things are, but with a healthy dose of comedy, pop culture, and off-topic ramblings. (that's the unrelated part. also, we're not related so it's a play on words. we're so clever.)

Episode 9: Cults and Brainwashing (PART ONE)

There's a gross double standard when it comes to black and white protesters. Ato and Chris break down the January 6th assault on the Capitol, and law enforcement's (lack of) reaction to it. And how do cults and groups like Qanon rope people in and then keep them around? And as always, there are gratuitous mentions of Ed Harris.

When police raided the home of Anjanette Young two years ago, they were at the wrong house. The body cam footage was only released a few weeks ago and has understandably brought police tactics back into the spotlight.
