Close friend and fellow Squad member "DoDo" (don't ask) comes on to discuss the police shootout / wrongful persecution against her ex bf; who will remain completely anonymous and hidden within the fogs of secrecy. DoDo (no not Dido, possibly grammy award winning musician. DoDo as in the bird I suppose) details the current situation regarding a courtroom "he said she said" vs corrupt police who refuse to take responsibility for the itchiness confined within their trigger fingers of their firearm wielding hands; no but rather they prefer to pin a wonky, full of holes, fairy tale of a story upon any & every junkie or tweaker within range of what their badge & utility belts can round together w/ the greatest of ease. We also have a handful of lovely compositions, remixes & VIPS from the very talented H8R Dubs ( SC link can be found here: H8R Dubs https://soundcloud.com/h8rdubs ). Unc reads a fan post and clickbaits his brethren in the Squad to some special surprises in the works coming next episode all in a very "run from the police" edition of Nod Squad.

This episode of Nod Squad takes us into the very frozen, war torn, fast paced city of Chicago. Known as Chiraq by the locals (a hybrid mashup of Chicago and Iraq) because of the record breaking gun violence rates despite having the strictest gun laws, Megan describes what its like to be an addict in a city where everyone and everything (even the weather) is trying to kill you. She also reveals the technique of hopping trains as a means to traveling around this great nation and how she used Kratom as a tool to get clean. Don't mind the gun shots fired in the background of this episode, as we have a new soundboard to censor out snippets of our interview that needed to be kept private. We hope you enjoy this dangerous yet exciting episode of Nod Squad.

In this episode Unc talks to longtime friend and fellow college companion "Page," who tells a very detailed tale of a tinder date gone wrong in more ways than one could possibly imagine. Dating a former Police Officer of the "Dirty" variety, this guy is crooked in more ways than we will ever fully get the pleasure of knowing. This one is pretty crazy and probably only scratches the surface of scandalousness that this Dirty Harry has stooped to during his time in law enforcement. Didn't think Page would ever reach debauchery on this level on the latest and greatest episode of the Nod Squad Podcast.
