    In the first hour, Lee and John spoke with Matt Berman on his book on the George Floyd case, the “Uncle Eddie” Savitz case, and the under reported violence in Philadelphia. Matt talked about a filmmaker in Philadelphia who was shot and killed, while making a film on gun violence in the city. Matt spoke on his investigation into the George Floyd death and how attorney Ben Crump has been a key figure in prominent cases involving Black victims. 

    In the second hour, Lee and John spoke with Bob Schlehuber on America's conditioning of thought, Hunter Biden protected by the media, and NCAA possibly paying student-athletes.
