About the Episode
The Butterfly Effect. What is it and what does it mean??
This week we go on a tilt-a-whirl of an adventure back in time with Colin’s real life Mom! We talk about fluttery insects, a Ray Bradbury short story, dinosaurs and dental procedures. Tune in and have an existential crisis with us while we try to determine what the heck it all means.

What is Antifa?
According to The Wall Street Journal, Antifa is a “loose network of antiracist, antifascist protesters…across [the United States].”
What is Facism?
Facism is a form of government characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and the economy that rose to prominence in the early 1900s. The core values of facism have resulted in genocides, massacres, forced sterilizations, mass killings, and forced deportations. See World War II.
