Power Of The Flag

Let’s see just how many people we can piss off with this episode.

Just kidding. For real though, with there having been so much talk surrounding all of the NFL/flag/anthem protests, we decided to do an episode on symbolism and why everyone seems to be so up in arms about it. It’s been a while now since that whole thing started and while the dust hasn’t settled completely, we thought now would be a good time to take a look at why symbols elicit such strong emotional reactions from people, what our symbols of patriotism mean to different groups, and how those symbols can and often do take on a life of their own.
