In honor of the passing of John Knippel, treasurer of No Exceptions North Carolina, and his slavery abolitionist legacy, we will rebroadcast this episode where Max, Yusuf, and John were together in the Paul Cuffee Abolitionist Center, Sumter, SC.


We dug deeply into the term and practice of involuntary servitude. What it is, how it works, who it applies to, why it's even legal, and how it's simultaneously ILLEGAL for every other nation in the world except the US.

We were joined by slavery abolitionist Samual Nathaniel Brown. Original author of the California abolition act which he wrote while incarcerated. He's one of the lead advocates for ACA8. The 2023 California Abolition Act.  California and North Carolina are the only two states that abolished slavery in their state constitution but added an exception to protect the practice of involuntary servitude.  As always we ask why, then provide real answers.
