Ah. so s/read/listen/ and otherwise my statement holds.
The producer is pretty decent. She did early work for Planet Money. It will have a slant but probably will be fair. Unless she’s gone insane with culture war over the past year or so.
I'd put money on the latter.
Legit the biggest reason I wish Hdawg had won. Everybody already had their sides drawn up for her, and the batshittery on both sides would be less. Including my own.

I know who she is, but tbf ‘London Breed’ does sound like a UK skinhead football hooligan gang.

Entire California school board resigns after caught mocking parents over school reopenings

I do want to snicker at them just for the way they got caught, but honestly, if you've ever known any teachers, you'd know they complain about parents a lot. And I would say they're probably justified too. Is there any profession where people don't complain about some of their clients?

My wife dreads Parent-Teacher night. Even doing it through Zoom this past year was a drag.

Honestly, probably them too. (I'm also reminded of what a veterinarian once said to me: the animals are your patients, but the humans are your clients.)

Yes, I was making a lame joke. People are typically at their very worst in the immediate aftermath of the death of a close family member or friend and clergy and I'm sure funeral parlor workers usually have both horror stories and hilarious stories about the antics of some of the survivors.

I have very bad memories of the funeral company I had to deal with at the time of my mother's death. Outrageous overcharges for even the simplest of items ($500 for a box for her ashes that would not have been worth $10 at Walmart, etc.)

There's certainly that, too. Funeral companies, now almost entirely big chains, are predatory, a fact that's been well documented ever since Jessica Mitford published The American Way of Death in 1963. They've successfully lobbied most states to pass laws pretty much requiring their services in some capacity, they're in cahoots with cemeteries, casket makers, etc.

That said, the bereaved can and often do behave, well, weirdly, sometimes in a funny way, sometimes in a bad way. And obviously all funereal rites and rituals are for the survivors, anyway; not for the guest of honor.
