This Amelnykan Life, Episode 13: Raise Awareness (or $5,000)

We’re taking a slightly different approach this week!

There’s lots to discuss this week, with Black Lives Matter protests continuing in the US and around the world, and Eugene Melnyk continuing to be an embarrassment to everyone associated with him.

In the 13th episode of This Amenlykan Life, we share what we’ve learned about racial justice recently, and talk about the good and bad of the NHL’s response to Black Lives Matter. Then we take a moment to roast everyone’s least favourite owner for his most recent shenanigans!
