Live from the Fire Escape, Episode 34

"We recorded this on the fire escape of our studio building, overlooking west North Avenue a few blocks from Pennsylvania Avenue, as large protests were being monitored by police and federal agencies on April 28th, 2015. It was an interesting day as we point out how peaceful and calm the city is, and how main steam media promotes their fear agenda."
