MK339: Rock Climbing While Black (Affirmative Action Case, Whoopi Goldberg, More Joe Rogen, Euphoria, Anime)

Episode 339

18th February 2022

This could be the end to Affirmative Action! Whoopi Goldberg was suspended from the view due to ignorant comments made about the holocaust. Joe Rogen still being Joe Rogen. Plus rock climbing while black, Euphoria, anime and more!

Episode notes

Affirmative Action could be struck down this year by the supreme court in a case where conservatives have found the perfect defendant to prove it’s unnecessary (though we know it is). We give our 2 cents on Whoopi Goldberg’s comments about the holocaust, her apology, and her two week suspension from The View. Is this a double standard when Joe Rogen is still able to rage on? Plus Emerald dishes on rock climbing while black, her experiences watching Euphoria, and the anime shows that have caught her eye.
