On this episode of the Gap, Tammy and Althea interview Remy Drabkin, Council President in McMinnville, among other titles. Remy has been very involved in the advocacy work against the Newberg School Board's move to ban Black Lives Matter and Pride flags from schools. She reveals the consequences of the action (losing funding!), the outside lawyer involved (same guy from the cake baking Supreme Court case!), steps the wine industry is taking to stand up for those impacted, and that this isn't just a Newberg problem.

Then, we ask our listeners, what's your hidden talent? Something that you're above average at, but might not be a marketable skill. Althea is good at navigating! Tammy can wiggle her toes well! The Sax Man plays the saxophone over the highway!
