On Sandra Bland, Gawker Ethics and Modern-Day Rap Beefs.

If you're a listener of KTCK 1310-AM or 96.7 FM, you probably feel like you already know TC Fleming and Jake Kemp well. And if you're not a listener of The Ticket? Well, whatever. You're about to get real familiar with these two just the same. Wanna hear past episodes? You can check out IJB's archives here and on our Soundcloud page. Wanna subscribe to the podcast on iTunes?

A momentary impersonation of Kabul-like power grid conditions in my neighborhood on Tuesday night pushed backed our regularly scheduled recording time a bit this week. But while we may sometimes be down at It's Just Banter, we're never out.

Extra time means more planning, For instance? We were able to come up with a fun idea for the next time we do a live taping of our podcast, which will take place on Tuesday, August 11, again at Off The Record in Deep Ellum. We pitch that idea here.

Really, though, chatter on that from is just a light appetizer for this week's heavy meal of yet more police conduct talk. We more or less agree on two things here: 1) The cop in the Sandra Bland video really could have done a much better job in his initial interaction with her, although 2) he still probably doesn't bear the majority of the burden for what happened after the fact.

From there, we stay serious and talk about the recent Gawker fiasco. After posting — and then deleting — a high controversial item this week, a couple of very key employees quit their jobs at that popular site. We discuss why that happened — and whether walking away from a problem like this one is a smart move.

Also, Jake might've gotten a key valuable of his ganked this week. So we talk about that, too.

Yup, it's another eventful It's Just Banter. — TC Fleming
