In this week’s episode, Jad and Kevin discuss how state bodies are able to use people’s children as a mechanism of control.

You’ve undoubtedly seen this methodology displayed in countless movies over the years. Whether it’s the mafia, some sort of foreign terrorist, or a state figure, threatening the safety of a person’s child is a sure-fire way to force them into compliance.

Kevin tells a story about a friend of his dealing with this and the Los Angeles Police Department (a group we’ve discussed many times in the past). Later in the episode we get into a playful discussion about New Jersey and all of its charms (or lack thereof).
