Here is how you can listen to The Katie Halper Show…
Live on WBAI at 99.5 FM or on the web at WBAI.org
With Collier Meyerson, Reggie Johnson and Gabe Pacheco!
Forget el Chapo…Donald Trump may be asking the FBI for protection against Joaquin Guzman Loera, the notorious Mexican drug lord known as el Chapo, who recently escaped from prison, again. But The Donald has already been attacked by a more formidable adversary who also hails from The Mexico. And his weapon of choice? Not bullets, not machetes, not gruesome torture…… Butt plugs!Meet Fernando Sosa, the 32-year old 3D artist based in Orlando, Florida, who was born and raised in Puebla Mexico. Sosa, who came to the United States when he was 11, was enraged when he heard Donald Trump spew his racist vitriol about Mexican rapists. So he decided he would turn his anger into a product… a butt plug, made of “fully colored material with a coarse finish and a delicate feel,” more specifically, as his website explains. In case you don’t know, a butt plug is a sex toy that does exactly what it sounds like it does. READ THE REST OF THE STORY HERE.
Guests Syreeta McFadden, Gabe Pacheco and Rebecca Carroll right before the debut episode of The Katie Halper Show! Then Gabe and guest Ava Farkas, ED of the Metropolitan Council on Housing, pose in front of some funny, political, anti-gentrification art we walked past right after the show. It was quite fitting, given our discussion of gentrification and housing right before.
