The Weekly Stuff Podcast #332 – Black Lives Matter, F*** the Police, and Reviewing Turn A Gundam

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

This week’s episode is primarily the topic from today’s Weekly Suit Gundam, our Mobile Suit Gundam-themed sister series, which turns one year old today as we review 1999’s Turn A Gundam, one of the greatest and most thematically rich corners of the entire Gundam universe. But we also take some time at the top of the show to discuss the protests that have grown across the United States and abroad against police brutality and systemic racism. Our perspective as two white guys is only worth so much, obviously, but we wanted to acknowledge the reality of this historic moment, and Sean’s insight as a young public school teacher in a country that prioritizes state violence over education is definitely worth hearing. 

We also share a few links to worthy causes we strongly encourage listeners to support, which include: 

Black Lives Matter Resource Hub –

Minnesota Freedom Fund –

Reclaim the Block –

Black Visions Collective –

Colorado Freedom Fund –

ActBlue Racial Justice Donation –

George Floyd Memorial Fund –

I Run With Maud (Ahmaud Arbery Memorial Fund) –
