What's up, folks, and welcome back to the Desk of Glen! 

Keeping up with the Nazis , let him take you down Freedom of Speech lane to ask but not always answer some important questions: What do we joke about? What can we make fun of? And, most importantly, why can't we joke about nazis?? 

Three cheers to policing humor!

With the strum of a guitar and the kick of the bass drum, do you ever think the characters Rock'n'Rollers play are reflective of reality? Does it take much to become the hero or the villain while finding your freedom in music? Glen's gears are turning as he dives into teenage years, musical liberation and becoming Hitler. Yes, we swear the nazis are relevant.
