Corrected: 056 The Erickson Report for June 16 to 29

This is a corrected version of Episode 56 of The Erickson Report, removing 50+ seconds of black screen at the end.

If the length of the episode is not an issue for you, you do not need this version. If the episode exceeding 30 minutes is an issue, this corrects that problem.

The Erickson Report is news and informed commentary from the radical nonviolent American left offered up by a proud member of "the woke mob" pursuing an "agenda" of justice, compassion, and community.
