We’re back. After an introductory, warm-up conversation about swearing (in which we do not swear) and travels, we talk with Seth Stoughton about policing in America. What should a police officer and a police force be? Warriors or guardians? Seth teaches us some history and shares his own experiences as a former police officer. Also how to pronounce Stoughton.
