The Duck Duck Gray Duck podcast from the Twin Cities

Frank & JJ  discuss candy, recap Halloween with the kiddos, and share a childhood story of how they almost hanged themselves during a Halloween stunt one year.

During the “Ask Frank Anything” segment, Frank and JJ discuss  if there is ever a situation where it’s okay for a white kid to paint his face dark to dress up as an African American role model for Halloween. The question stems from this seemingly innocent (yet offensive) picture of a kid dressing up as Mr T back in the 80s.
