On this week's episode Seamus and Lily discuss whether or not the drinking age should be lowered, and why they believe it's a myth that alcohol makes you more creative as a writer. Then they are joined by Shannon Hayes, a political science student who was a student at Arapahoe High School during a 2013 school shooting. Shannon talks with Seamus and Lily about what it's like to be a teen in a school where gun violence happens, personal and collective trauma, triggers, and the work she is doing to advocate for gun control.
