In The Thick


Nov 27, 2018

Over the weekend, U.S. Border Patrol agents tear gassed hundreds of migrant children, women and men seeking asylum at the San Ysidro port of entry. In part one, Maria and Julio talk with Buzzfeed News' Adolfo Flores, reporting on the ground at the border. In part two, we talk about about the racially charged senate runoff in Mississippi with Chellese Hall, co-host of the Red Flag podcast.

ITT STAFF PICKS:

  • Adolfo Flores spoke with the woman in the iconic photo fleeing tear gas in the border (from Buzzfeed News).
  • In CityWatch, a historian explains the present and the future of the Confederate flag.
  • From the Red Flag's episode "Never Meaning No Harm" where Chellese and her co-host Beau York go deeper into the confederate flag's usage on The Dukes of Hazzard as well as the impact of images on racial trauma. 
Special thanks this week to Beau York and his studio, Podastery in Jackson, Mississippi.
