Episode 18: Gun Control, Misogyny, and Pet Care Call to Action

Recorded 8/6/2019 – While this is out a week late, it is still to hopefully keep things fresh in people’s minds about the tragedies that happened in Ohio and Texas. We talk about gun control. We talk about misogyny, we talk about how racism still lives in america with a bunch of news and notes. We need to keep this thing in the news cycle so it doesn’t get lost in all the other racist things that have happened.

We also have a call to action about pet products where Noelle responds about the fact that one of her cats passed away due to a product labeled safe for cats that was not safe for cats. Noelle’s response to a retailer, Chewy.com is in the podcast (full disclosure, it isn’t Chewy’s fault. They just spoke up since the link to the product just happened to be on their website. It was not purchased at Chewy).

Please excuse the lateness of the episode, Bill has been absolutely exhausted between being sick and other things that happened up on his plate.

More information about this product is located on Noelle’s spouse’s post https://www.facebook.com/LookDownrange/posts/2513949725303579

The call to action is to contact the head of your GOP in your state and lean on them to do something (outside of worrying about video games) that is direct action to do something about gun violence https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_state_parties_of_the_Republican_Party_(United_States)

. The other call to action is to contact Adams Pet Supply https://www.adamspetcare.com/about/contact-us about their shampoos and tick sprays that are not safe for cats.

Our Patreon link is below, however Noelle has had a loss in her family of furchildren, Murray, and is working to pay off vet bills. There is a special Patreon Cat-centric post that we recorded before this happened. August and September’s Patreon support will go to Noelle to help ease the burden.
