On this episode, I (JDO) record my end from inside my 2005 Nissan Altima. I drive around OKC, noting the things that I see, and Kris recounts stories from his time wandering around America looking for work. We talk about the difference between family and friends, networks of Indian convenience stores, outdoor couches, opossum hunters, my week as a radical animal liberation terrorist, the significance of and issues with Black Lives Matter, and finally, blowguns.
