No passport is needed for today's adventure to Lagos, Nigeria. Join Queen Sunny Honey and her Tinder-tales from the Motherland perspective. Time to bust the myths that Africans are living in huts, and deal with the reality that Nigeria looks like NYC.
On today’s broadcast we will be joined by author LeRon Barton to discuss his book Straight Dope: A 360 degree look into American drug culture and issues related to the Drug War. The book is based on a series of one on one interviews Mr. Barton conducted with several people on the subject matter. Mr Barton also maintains the blog Mainline Publishing and you can link up with him on Twitter.
Of course I will be discussing some the day’s news headlines and more.
In the news,
- Detroit man convicted of killing teens apologizes for not getting justice for black victims
- A documentary about the Black Panther Party is showing at the Sundance Film Festival
- President Barack Obama will not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
