For our second show with a candidate of 2015, The Social Spitball Show welcomes Ken Spaulding, Democratic candidate for Governor of North Carolina in 2016.
Kenneth B. Spaulding is a native of Durham, North Carolina and has served as a practicing attorney through his law office since 1970. He is a graduate of Howard University in Washington, DC. He received his Juris Doctor from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, North Carolina in 1970. While there, Ken was the first minority to be elected as president of a first-year law class and became the first minority Honor Court Chief Justice.
In 1978, Spaulding was elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives where he served until 1984. While there, he introduced and helped secure passage of the state’s first Rape Victim Assistance Program. During his six years in the House of Representatives, he pushed for literacy achievement for adults throughout North Carolina. Another important accomplishment while in the North Carolina General Assembly, was that Ken introduced and helped pass legislation that finally allowed public housing residents the opportunity to serve and vote on local Housing Authority Boards.
During Spaulding's private sector career, he helped bring hundreds of millions of dollars of economic investment and development into North Carolina, along with thousands of jobs.
Spaulding is the son of Asa T. Spaulding, Sr., former President of North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company and Elna Spaulding, Durham’s first woman and African American woman County Commissioner. Spaulding and his wife Wendy, reside in Durham, North Carolina. Together they have five children.
Spaulding, "The People's Candidate for Governor," was the first Democratic candidate in the race, running since 2013.
Barbara & I look forward to it! Let's get the conversation going...
Please listen in as Maurita Miller, a foster parent from North Carolina and founder of In Our Shoes Inc., describes her experience with her youth who "aged-out" of foster care. She describes how she was told "if she kept a youth who emancipated form foster care in her home, the other foster youth in her home would be placed into a different home." She also poses several important questions, such as:
- If we are going to extend foster care to 21, what are we going to change about the system? Are we going to just prolong what happens to young adults at age 18 to when they are 21?
- What are we doing to help insure that youth are not going straight into homeless shelters or the judicial system, because they do not have a place to stay after they emancipate?
- How are we going to increase normalcy for teens in foster care (hanging out with friends, first hand learning experiences, driving education, etc.)?
Please comment with your thoughts below

Attorney Sarah Avraham and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
The audience should know that although Ms. Avraham is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law. Despite opposition from a wide range of groups (AARP, veterans, journalists, and animal welfare advocates to name a new), North Carolina lawmakers have overriden the governor’s veto of a bill that allows businesses to sue employees who expose what happens on the job, even if it what they are exposing is illegal. Why are bills like this making their way across the country? What does this mean for the “everyman”? Tune in to hear our hosts answer these and other questions on this issue.
In continuing to rock the NFL "SuperFan" series 2015-style, I will preview the Carolina Panthers' upcoming season with Panthers' fan/UNC delusionist Kevin Weeden.
Topics to be covered include:
What went wrong with the 2014 Panthers?
Thoughts on the Panthers' draft?
How much does the Kelvin Benjamin injury hurt?
Does Cam Newton have anyone to get the ball to?
How will the Panthers fare in 2015?
Bill welcomes Will North back to the show. Will has led a varied writing life. He has written more than a dozen non fiction books. He was also a ghostwriter—for an American President, a Vice-President, a famous mountaineer and explorer, a team of Everest climbers, a group of dinosaur-hunters, and a pioneering doctor, among others. He also wrote a series of off-the-beaten-track guidebooks to Britain. Now he's writing ficiton. What an interesting guy! Don't miss it for anything.
