    #TeachMeYouDid - James West Story

    Thursday May 4, 2017 I participated in a storytelling event at HousingWorks Bookstore in Manhattan. The title was "Teach Me You Did" and was a celebration of Star Wars Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, and the resistance. I shared the story of a family friend, James West, who taught me much.

    Testing New Podcast: What I Would Have Said On TakePart Live If We Had More Time

    I'm now one of three co-hosts on TakePart Live (http://takepart.com/live) on the new TV network, Pivot. Every day, Jacob Soboroff, Meghan McCain and I deliver and debate news, and because it's TV, we run out of time! So consider this my extended thoughts or "Things I Would Have Said On TV If We Had More Time." I'm testing out this format on my SoundCloud account and welcome feedback to youarespecial@baratunde.com

    #TheConfessional: An emotional post-viewing discussion of #FruitvaleStation, The #OscarGrant Film

    #TheConfessional: An emotional post-viewing discussion of #FruitvaleStation, The #OscarGrant Film

    Fruitvale Station is the fictional account of an all too true story of the murder of Oscar Grant by Bay Area Rapid Transit police. I recorded this episode of the podcast moments after seeing an advanced screening of the film on Wednesday July 10th with my friend and former college roommate Dahni-El Giles.

    The movie is beautiful and hard to watch at the same time. You absolutely must see it. More info here http://www.fruitvalefilm.com/

    In our conversation, Dahni-El and I reference the work of our friend Dr. Phillip Atiba Goff which you can find here: http://policingequity.org
