We decided to try out a couple new things for this very special episode: for one, it’s our first time having (well, trying to have) multiple guests on at once. And two, the guests of this episode wanted to remain anonymous. Joining us are the moderators of r/parlerwatch, a Reddit sub whose original purpose was to be a safe space for people to stay informed about what was happening on social media site Parler.

We, of course, did some research and found that this truly was a one-of-a-kind photo, hand-placed in this book by our neighbor, Brooklyn-based artist Fred Cray.

In this episode, Fre...
