The Yardie Skeptics return this Sunday, September 20th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) to take into the very private, rarely investigated professional life of Caribbean judges. What kind of training is required to be a judge in the Caribbean and what is the philosophical framework which informs the notion of "justice" in the Caribbean - is it restorative or simply about vengeance? What is the role of the judiciary in the establishment and protection of human rights and what ideologies influence such rights - secular or religious?
Joining us live on air will be Madam Justice Jacqueline Cornelius of the High Court of Barbados; Justice Douglas Mendes, former Court of Appeal Judge for Belize; and Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith also from Belize. This promises to be quite an educational episode so do tune in and land a coveted opportunity to talk justice with a Caribbean judge!

Nicholas Snow is truly honored to welcome to the show Nhojj to dicuss his music (three tracks featured in this episode) and Michael Burlingame's powerful documentary, Out On The Tracks, which centers on the Nhojj and a man who heard him sing and was so moved that he wanted to share his voice with the world. With a 25 year age difference and coming from contrasting social, ethnic and racial backgrounds, these two men share the core belief that music can transcend barriers and bring people together: thus Nhojj enters the recording studio giving birth to the groundbreaking "Made To Love Him" sessions. Affirming the LGBTQ community through same-sex renditions of classic love songs, this gentle and human documentary touches upon the themes of love, hope and self-acceptance, and explores the recording process and the power of music.
At his offiical website we learn, "With a force that exudes his passion for love and life, a tone that resounds in both whisper and wail, and a consciousness that, without being preachy, speaks truth to power, Nhojj has spent more than a decade becoming what some regard as a “soul pioneer”. “I want to make the world better…one song at a time!” Nhojj says, a statement that underscores a classic soul tradition of having a “message in the music”.
