This week's episode: 

First off: We speak to biologist and science blogger, Danielle N. Lee, who was called an "urban whore," by the editor of Biology-online.org after she turned down an email request to guest-blog for free. Danielle, a zoologist at Oklahoma State University (OKU) maintains the blog called "The Urban Scientist" on the Scientific American website. 

Next up: We go international! In this segment we speak with Canadian blogger, Telisha Ng, the publisher of the website Goddess Intellect. We'll discuss this weeks controversy involving Toronto's mayor, Rob Ford, and his crack smoking scandal. 

Finally: We speak to "The Janitor" -- our resident legal expert -- of the blog The Urban Politico about the latest political news in the wake of this week's elections. We'll also take a close look at CNN's Don Lemon, and his defense and partial endorsement of the NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy.
