We start up today's episode by defining "Wook Culture" so you can guess how deep today's Spicecast goes! We talk to the Silver Silo's about practice time rituals, how their tracks get conceived and for some reason the guys start throwing their wedding rings on the ground... We also get to hear four originals from the guys including "The Letter", "Last Night's Dream", "You Can't Be What You Ain't If That Ain't What You Is" and "Whiskey and Water".

On August 13th, 1828 11 enslaved people sued two white men for their freedom in the court of Huntsville Alabama. This was one of only two court cases John O'Brien has ever found that included enslaved people as litigants and not as property.
Today's case covered a vast expanse of 1800's civil rights including a women's right to property and "Manumission" -where a slave owner willingly frees their slaves usually upon their death. We also discuss the documentation required of free black people during the era.
