On Second Thought For Friday October 6, 2017
On Monday, the Atlanta City Council voted unanimously to weaken punishments for the possession of marijuana. Now, those caught with an ounce or less will not serve jail time, and will be fined no more than $75. We talk about this monumental move with Andrea Young, Executive Director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia.
We add two more songs to the essential Georgia Playlist. Rules are simple: artists pick their favorite music from the Peach State, excepting their own tunes. We sit down with Dave Kirslis, singer of the Georgia based band Cicada Rhythm, to get his picks. The band plays at the Georgia Theater in Athens, Monday, October 16.
The Breakroom returns! We discuss robot chefs, Amazon’s new HQ, and Nintendo brining back some 16 bit magic. We also examine Trump's handling of Puerto Rico, middle fingers, and gun laws, or lack thereof… Joining us this week are Kathy Lohr, Hector Fernandez, Christian Zsilavetz, and Greg Williams.
