In Part 2 of Episode 192, we discuss the allegations surrounding Brand New and those others under the spotlight of sexual abuse and assault within the entertainment industry. It was a tough conversation, but one we felt was needed, especially given our attention paid to Brand New in recent months (on top of just caring about this music scene).
