WITW Short 17 – Riot In The Boonies

Pod-friends! How are you doing this week? Our lovely co-host Carolyn had a birthday this weekend! Be sure to shower her in belated bday love. This week’s short covers the surprising military history of “the boonies” and shares the events that unfolded during the LA Riots. We hope you’re well, safe, and always keeping an open mind. A couple of resources are listed below, but we will be sure to share more later in the week. See you next week!
