At this time there is national attention on black colleges specifically the marching band because of the tragic death of Robert Champion. Unfortunately this has happened before in bands and in greek orgainizations across the country but most people did not know that the marching band participated in this type of behaivor. Why does this type of hazing happen in marching bands or is there a bigger issue involved? We discuss an article identifying a mob, pros and cons of hazing, and previews for Choppin it up and the introduction of the new show produced by the Marching Podcast and more. Please weigh in and give us a call at (718) 664-6025 and/or when logged into the show you can chat with the host. Send your feedback to marchingpodcast@gmail.com like us on facebook at themarchingpodcast  or tweet us @marchingpodcast.
