About this Episode

Black Lives Matter. We support the ongoing uprisings against police brutality in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, and we wanted to both reflect on what this means for us and talk to our audience directly about how you can help. We start the conversation with our standard Plus Expenses-style check-in, and transition about half an hour in to talking about the protests and what we're currently grappling with as next steps towards a future without police.

Ways to help:

  • We are donating funds from our Patreon to < ahref = "https://secure.actblue.com/donate/wp4bl">the Los Angeles Action Bail Fund
  • Educate yourself and find more places to donate at Blacklivesmatter.carrd.co

  • Verso Books is hosting free ebooks on the topic of police abolition, check out their page on Abolition and Black Struggle for links and more information
  • Thanks to Nathan Ward for mentioning us in his article Falling in Love with The Rockford Files All Over Again!

    Two Hundred a Day is a podcast by game and narrative designers Nathan D. Paoletta and Epidiah Ravachol. In each episode we pick an episode of The Rockford Files, recap and review it as fans of the show, and tease out specific elements from that episode that hold lessons for writers, gamers and anyone else interested in making better narratives.
