A statement from the members of the podcast

We would like to make a clear statement regarding information that has come to light about a former member of our podcast. We believe that all individuals are free to hold beliefs of their choice and vote as their conscience dictates. However, we also stand against racism and discrimination in all forms, and for all individuals to be treated respectfully, equally, and fairly by the systems they live under. We unequivocally reject neo-Nazi and other far-right platforms that discount the humanity of individuals based on their ethnicity, race, religion, country of origin, sexuality, gender identity, or any other characteristic.

When we were informed of some things posted publicly by the former member of our podcast, we researched the matter to the best of our ability and had several conversations with her.  Ultimately it was decided that because of her open support for a political party that stands in direct conflict with these views, she will no longer be associated with the podcast and will not further contribute to any of our content.

We hope to continue being a welcoming and inclusive space that provides fun content for all fans to enjoy together.
