Boycotts and Cancel Culture

I'm sure you've heard several people on Facebook and Twitter talking about how they are going to boycott the NFL or how they want to cancel Netflix. Though I fully support your right to boycott such things, I find your cause to be flawed. It's a weird internal struggle to be honest. On one hand, boycotts have lead to a lot of positive changes throughout history. Yet, in this moment in history, boycotts have denigrated into mere tweets voicing displeasure about some obscure cause you are fighting for. Pretty much, boycotting has become the adult way of throwing a temper tantrum, because athletes and corporations aren't doing what you want them to do. It's become a silly game of who can be outraged by the dumbest things. Anywho, I share my thoughts on the matter in this weeks episode. Enjoy.

About the Podcast

Guys of the Round Table
The podcast that talks about life as it happens.
Guys of the Round Table is a podcast that tries to speak on current events with a fair and objective point of view. Here we try to abstain from the "hot take" narrative that everyone goes after. We don't try to demean anyone or their beliefs. Here we try to understand the underlying issues of ideals and try to figure out a solution to them (if there is one). We will talk about anything from sports, politics, relationships, family, religion and a host of other topics. Bottom line, we try to keep an open line of communication to what is going on in the world around us. We are dedicated to learning and growing. Above all else, try to impart a little sanity in a crazy world.
