Harlan brings a super-sized bottle of bourbon so Ass. Producer Marshall shows up Tony shows up too; we should have gallon jugs of whiskey at every After Lodge The Angry Chaplain and his many costumes. His psychologist visits must be postponed due to COVID-19. Harlan misses the mark catching up on previously recorded episodes - again Tony gets shot during (or, at least at the same time as) local riots And then there was Doug . . . or Truman A segue for Agency Law Providing masks for Lodge visitors - Aprons are not an acceptable substitute! And right at the end (just kidding!), things take a more serious turn with some police funding debate Then the [recovering] cops take the floor for a long and in-depth discussion of modern issues in/with law enforcement Email us at afterlodge@gmail.com (mailto:afterlodge@gmail.com) Hang out with us on /r/AfterLodge (https://www.reddit.com/r/afterlodge) Find us on Facebook (https://facebook.com/afterlodge) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/AfterLodge) Join us on IRC: irc.snoonet.org #freemasonry Special Guest: Ass.
