The episode opens with Harriet Johnson taking to the stage to read the letter she has written to the governor. As she begins, it is hard to hear her soft voice. When the citizens complain, she apologizes for her lack of public speaking experience. She then bellows to the point that everyone nearly jumps out of their seats. She expresses the town's displeasure at the governor's choice for their new sheriff. As she finishes, she is greeted with a round of applause and a herd of cattle running through the back of the church. As the minute comes to an end, Bart is hanging some wanted posters up on the wall of the jail when he hears a noise from cell number two.

Today’s guest is broadcaster Jackie Hatcher. Jackie is a podcaster who, along with her friend, Lori, produces a show called, Opinions in Black and White. As a black mom, she and her co-host, a white mom, discuss life and child rearing in today’s world, often focusing on the silliness of judging people by their skin, upbringing or nationality.
