As progressive as I like to think I am, I have some vestigial homophobia that flares up from time to time. It isn't nearly as bad as it used to be, but it still happens and I'm disgusted by it. It doesn't make any kind of sense, but hate and mistrust are forms of currency that many of us trade in. 

It is such a long road to detox from homophobia. 

I will not link directly to the songs I've used in this podcast, but here is the list: 

Buju Banton: "Boom Bye Bye"

Chubb Rock: "Ya Bad Chubbs"

Brand Nubian: "Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down"

Common: "Dooinit"

Jeru The Damaja: "Come Clean"

Dire Straits: "Money For Nothing"
