    Graphic Policy Radio with guest Kelly Thompson

    in Pop Culture

    This Monday Graphic Policy Radio is getting truly outrageous as comic creator Kelly Thompson joins us to discuss Jem & The Holograms! The series debuts Wednesday March 25 and features art from Sophie Campbell.


    In addition to the upcoming Jem & The Holograms comic, Kelly is the writer of Storykiller and The Girl Who Would Be King, as well as the co-writer of Captain Marvel & the Carol Corps.


    Jem will be on a lot of people's minds as there's not only the comic, but a live action movie hitting theaters October 2015. For those who don't remember the rocking 80s cartoon....


    It’s the 21st century, and Jem and The Holograms are 21st century girls! Meet Jerrica Benton, the gifted singer of The Holograms, a band that has the right look and the right sound… But one thing is holding them back—Jerrica’s crippling stage fright. Luckily, Jerrica is about to find help in the most unlikely of places when she discovers a forgotten present left by her father. And what she finds is truly outrageous!


    Joining us is frequent guest Emma Houxbois. Emma is a queer blogger for hire out of Vancouver, BC, and the DC Comics reviewer for The Rainbow Hub!


    So join us Monday and find out what everyone will be talking about, when we discuss Jem & the Holograms with Kelly Thompson. We want to hear from you too! Call in with your thoughts or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.

    Graphic Policy Radio Talks Doctor Who

    in Pop Culture

    Graphic Policy Radio returns after a breif hiatus, and in this episode we go Who! Tonight, we're discussing Doctor Who, focusing on Titan Comics' various series featuring the many recent doctors. We're joined tonight with special guests Amanda Mayer and Chris Reid.


    Amanda Mayer is a writer, director, and comedian, as well as a long-time Whovian.  She can currently be seen performing with musical improv teams Goats and Orphan Alley around NYC.


    Chris Reid is a lifelong nerd, avid gamer (both digital and physical) and consumer of sci-fi and fantasy entertainment in its various forms. He runs a solo law practice in Brooklyn, working largely with indie game developers and others in the game industry helping them navigate the various legal issues that crop up in their business (and sometimes procrastinating by playing his client's games). Chris watched the occasional old-school Doctor Who as a kid when it was on TV, but didn't really get into the Whoniverse (don't call it that) until about 2008, at which point he became an instant obsessive fan.


    Join us for this wibbly wobbly timey wimey episode as we enjoy some fish fingers and custard and talk all things Who!

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. Rejects $5 Million Penalty For Failed Drug Test

    in Sports

    It's has come to the publics attention that Floyd Mayweather has refused to agree to a $5 million penalty if either fighter were to fail a drug test either before or after the May 2nd fight. Manny Pacquaio is the one who requested for this fine to be included in the contract. The problem is that the contract has already been signed by both parties. However, there is a separate agreement that the United States Anti-Doping Agency will be overseeing random blood and urine testing for both fighters, terms for a substantial fine in the event of a dirty test are still being discussed. If neither fighter have anything to hide, thena agreement shouldn't be hard to come by. Even with that said, it should've been included in the original contract to avoid any outside negotiations.

    Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) is seeking volunteers. Tonight we welcome Zora Ray, who is AIMI's Advocacy Coodinator for Drug/Alcohol Dependencies, Zora Ray, at 9pmEST. Please call to speak on air at (818) 572-2947. Everyone is invited! Zora is a retired psychiatric nurse who successfully battled drug addiction and depression herself, and she looks forward to helping other people. Email Zora at the address below:

    As a AIMI advocate, Zora will try to find treatment centers and other services for persons who suffer from drug/alcohol dependencies. AIMI believes that persons with drug/alcohol addictions need TREATMENT, NOT PUNISHMENT. Therefore, Zora will attempt to have drug/alcohol-dependent defendants tried in drug courts rather than regular criminal courts, and she will attempt to influence decision makers to sentence addicts to treatment rather than to jails and prisons. 

    If you would like to work with AIMI as a volunteer, please contact MaryLovesJustice at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call AIMI's director at (678)531.0262 or (571)335-1741.

    Alcoholism/Drug Addiction: Is it a Brain Disease?

    in Family

    The DSM-5, which is the Diagnostic of Statistical Manual that Health Professionals use to diagnose patients with mental disorders, including addictions, and let me mention all of man kinds addictions fall into this category, from coffee, to tobacco, to alcohol and any kind of drug named that can prove a psychoactive result within that substance. If it changes the way you feel, it names it. It explains the activation of the brains rewards system and how it is the central point of creating problematic situations in an individuals life, that the feeling created by such use from alcohol or drugs, feelings of pleasue and euphoria, which is so profound to them that an individual will bypass normal activity just to partake in once again creating this feeling. Now DSM-5 has two groups, which one, are substance use disorders, which creates patterns of smyptoms that result from using which the individual takes despite of the problems they may experience.The other is substance induced disorders which is important to be aware of because alcoholism/drug addiction is closely related to several mental illnesses. They mention induced bipolar, anxiety, depressive, sleep, delirium, which is alcoholism, sexual dysfunctions, and neurocognitive disorders. I mention this because so many doctors will diagnose an alcoholic/addict with a particular mental illness, like slapping a label on them. Then they drug them, then clean and sober and working a program after a year, their symptoms have disappeared. Alcoholic/addicts were housed in mental institutions up into the 80's until they closed them down, now they are housed in jails with violent offenders. We have the largest, over populated jail system in the world and the majority of them are there due to alcohol and drug offenses.
