Socalled on Bandcamp (link).
UPDATE (03/22/20) This episode has been edited because the original version included uncritical talk of grocery shopping and dog-walking during self-quarantine, which goes against public health advice. This content shouldn’t have been included because it arguably normalized potentially dangerous behaviour. We regret the error.
