This is a special week for the podcast as we celebrate our one year anniversary. It was during the Pride48 live event this time last year that Mark and I launched the North & South of Things. It is also a pretty somber week giving the tragedy at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando where 49 members of our LGBT family were killed and more than 50 were injured by gunfire. With this in mind, Mark and I decided to discuss gun ownership and gun control during this special Pride48 live event. This show is proud to be a part of the Pride48 community!

Twenty states have some form of a ‘religious freedom’ law. The SCOTUS decision on marriage equality have many more states considering similar legislation. In this episode we discuss the intent of the legislation, faux religious persecution and a surprising corporate response in Atlanta. #Pride48
On this episode, Mark and George talk about their cities’ respective NFL stadiums currently under development. Atlanta and Minnesota are both using public financing for the development of these professional sports teams. Is this fair? Does the community benefit from these facilities? Or does this amount to corporate welfare for very wealthy team owners?
