CALL IT LIKE I SEE IT

Maybe This Is What LeBron Was Worried About

Share:

In this episode:

Hosted By: James Keys & Tunde Ogunlana

We look at the jailing of a University of Minnesota student from China for political tweets (00:53), how this may be the type of thing LeBron James was worried about during the NBA and China controversy (04:02), and wonder if the government’s legal retaliation against CNN and AT&T puts us on a slippery slope towards this (07:30).  We also discuss Robert Downey Jr.’s recent comments on the use of blackface in Tropic Thunder (9:40), the presence of “forever” chemicals in the water supply of many Americans (18:20) and the general lack of concern for protecting our environment (20:57), and the disconnect between the so called experts and many members of the public concerning keto diets (34:35).
