Outside Lands Podcast Episode 385: Toppling Monuments

In San Francisco, and the nation, several prominent statues have been toppled in reaction to the subjects' past history of racism, oppression, or enslavement. We examine the context during which the monuments were raised, the history of the subjects, and discuss their planned, and unplanned removal.
