When the part was discussed about how the punks and others in the DC underground scene stood up to and ran the racist skinheads and all of their bullshit violence out of town, one of you questioned if this had happened anywhere else. And yes it did the late 80s- mid 90s Portland, OR underground/punk scene. The racist skinheads had made going to shows not fun and, for many, a dangerous experience. There is a podcast about the problems the Portland music scene had with white supremacists and the violence and how they battled it and eventually got rid of the violence and racsim. TOAP is the best podcast going!! I'm a music (particularly punk rock) nerd so this podcast is so interesting and cool !!! KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK, DAMIEN!!!

Excellent interview! Loved him mentioning the Ebullition/HeartAttack scene. Very much remember that. The reaction of jock hardcore people in the states on their Snapcase tour was really interesting.
