In this week's episode, Meghan Murphy and Laura McNally wonder who is the real Karen of the Ramble park debacle: Amy Cooper or Christian Cooper? Also, it turns out all Karens are not manager-calling, dog leash-policing yuppies. The Karen people are a historically oppressed group of people, persecuted and under attack since Burma became independent from the British Empire in 1948. Burmese troops continue to destroy Karen villages and over 100,000 Karen live in refugee camps. Learn more about the lovely Karen people and their struggle.
