AverageBro Does NPR: Take Three (w/Audio)

I did NPR News and Notes with Farai Chideya as expected today. As is my typical routine, I hopped the train to Chinatown, grabbed some Starbucks, and made the (rainy) trek down Seventh Street to Mass Ave. When I arrived at the studio, I found a pleasant surprise. The show's hostess, Farai Chideya, was broadcasting live from DC, as opposed to her usual spot in Los Angeles. I've been a long admirer of Farai's work, from her books like Don't Believe The Hype, to her recent guest appearances on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher. She's as cool as expected in person and all-around "good peoples", so this was definitely a bonus.

We ran through a number of topics, including the "cluster" that is the Democratic nomination for President, the Philly Police Beatings, and The State of Illinois vs Robert Sylvester Kelly. Also on the panel today were Meji Alabi of anythingBlack and Shay Riley of Booker Rising.
