Hey everyone. Welcome to episode 2 of the No Escape podcast. This one has some rough content, so here's a content warning: This episode features discussions about concentration camps, Donald Trump, racist slurs, sexual, physical and emotional violence, possible transphobic bullshit. There's a transcript of the show below if you'd prefer to read rather than listen, if you're deaf/hearing impaired, if you have an auditory processing disorder or if you want to read along while you listen.
1:30 - Kyle Kashuv/Liz Cheney's dumb bullshit re: racial slurs, getting kicked out of Harvard, and quibbling over the usage of "concentration camps" to describe ICE's concentration camps.
11:00 - Cyberpunk 2077 might be closer to The Witcher than we thought, and this isn't great.

(To my dismay, I can't actually give y'all a transcript here. There's a 4000 character word count on this description. Go over to www.noescapevg.blog to read the transcript. Sorry!)
