Episode 25: Pride48 Live Event

NorthSouthThis 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!
