For Episode 20 of our Nooze Hounds podcast, we bring back a guest who appeared on our very first episode, Robert Dawkins of Action NC and SAFE Coalition, to discuss the realities and myths around defunding the police. We also discuss recent protests and the clearing of jail support by the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, the CMPD’s Crisis Intervention Team, the city’s JumpStart microgrant program and other related issues, ending with a quick discussion of why everyone on Twitter was talking about mayo on Thursday.
Remember you can catch us on Spotify and other places where you find podcasts, and be sure to check out Queen City Podcast Network for a slew of other great Charlotte podcasts that aren’t quite as good as ours but pretty damn close.
