23min of Politically Charged Ska

About a year ago there was this big gathering in front of the White House. Uh… some things happened, some things that a fair amount of people weren’t exactly happy about. Some people spoke out, some people wrote songs. The first 5 songs on this podcast are some of those songs. Some written as a reaction to the man himself, others to the climate America has started to find itself in. The last 3 songs are also political in nature but don’t have the same target. In particular, the final song is really something we should all keep in mind for the next 3 years.
