We're sorry for the lack of Don't Read the Trolls segments of late, so we decided to make an entire episode out of an email we were sent. After releasing Episode 79 and 83 (Sexual Harassment and Public Apologies), a female listener sent a valid critique to us, two white dudes who often have our blinders on to the experiences of others. We answered her on this episode, and while our answers definitely don't satisfy the matter, we're encouraged to be able to continue this important...
