We continue our between-season break with the second part of the Season Six Blooper Reel. We have no excuses for this.

We’re back with more questions from Policies Like You! We really enjoyed answering these—stay tuned next time for answers to questions posed to Herbert West, George Chamberlain, Elizabeth, Meatwall, and others.
Loyal Policies: as we work diligently on Season Seven of Our Fair City, we thought we’d take a moment to answer questions about our show from Policies Like You. We got way more questions than we could handle in a single podcast, so we’ll be answering your queries over the next few weeks—if you submitted a question and didn’t hear it answered here, sit tight–we will most likely answer it in the next session.
Special thanks to Smilodonmeow, Soap-lady, Jdimpson, Ashleythedragon, Belanekra, Snail_army, G2 the Irish Pianist, Krund the Barbarian, and everyone else who sent a question in!
Every year, the Loyal Policies of HartLife celebrate Exclusion Day: the day the glorious founders of the Company sealed the tower away from the cold, Wolves, and dangers of the Outside, protecting their Policies from here to eternity. By Excluding the outside world, Loyal Policies would never be exposed to dangers like Free Thought, New Ideas, or Innovation.
We’d like to make a special note here: this Holiday season, the themes of exclusion, refugees, and societal control through xenophobia are everywhere in the news. We’d like to take the opportunity to raise awareness for several great organizations that are working to provide opportunities and help for refugees in American and around the world.
Here in Chicago, we’d recommend supporting RefugeeOne, which you can learn more about at refugeeone.org–they’re a great organization dedicated to creating opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance. Globally, Doctors without Borders is a fantastic organization, helping people worldwide where the need is greatest, delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care. You can find their organization online at doctorswithoutborders.org. Finally, we recommend supporting the [email protected] Coalition, whose mission is to advocate for the specific needs of Trans [email protected] immigrants who reside in the US and plan advocacy strategies that would improve their quality of life. Support them and learn more at http://www.
