During the main segment, they try to unpack internalized oppression and taking on the language of the colonizer. Lastly, they bring back Historical Fact of the Day.
Water is Life. In honor of Indigenous Peoples day, Kat and Mesha discuss the current struggle of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of South Dakota and their fight to keep their primary water source clean as they protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Later, Kat and Mesha ponder whether going to college and gaining massive debt is truly the only route to achieve the American Dream.
