In this episode, Joey helps Ross with his dirty talking, Chandler struggles to figure out what he’s doing with his life, and Monica gets hired as an Executive Chef only to have the owner of the restaurant get obnoxiously high for her interview. In this episode we discuss the anxiety involved in picking a stable, well-paying job versus following your dreams. We also unpack the representation of smoking pot in the media, The War on Drugs and the ways in which policing of marijuana disproportionately affects Black Indigenous People of Colour. Strap yourself in, and let's get into it!

We would like to state that this podcast was recorded in 'Montreal', or Tiohtiá:ke, which we recognize is unceded indigenous land of the traditional territories of the Kanien’kehá:ka, 'Mohawk', Anishinabeg, 'Algonquin', and other peoples. We recognize the indigenous peoples as the rightful custodians of this land and are grateful and respect every which way they have taken care of and fought for this land, including, and not exclusive to, the Oka Crisis.
Though we continuously are working to use this podcast as a platform to address and unpack systems of oppression we also recognize our whiteness, that we are able bodied, our class privilege, and, in addition, our newness at attempting to create this media. We welcome any insight, feedback or resources on how we can do this better, or if we are doing it wrong.
