    Vivek Tiwary Dishes on Epstein Graphic Novel!

    in Pop Culture

    Tonight meet the creative genius behind The Fifth Beatle, the new graphic novel on the life of Brian Epstein.

Join me as we talk about the line Tiwary draws between fact and fiction...and as we discuss elements of the book that stray from the historical time line. You'll be able to call in and sing this author's praises...and ask him your questions! I'll be taking calls around 8:15 pm CT.

    Mason Stokes: Saving Julian - New Novel!

    in Writing

    Author Mason Stokes will showcase his new novel, Saving Julian on tonight's show!

    Call 323 657-1493 to ask the author a question!

    Saving Julian is a darkly comic journey into the sad, strange world of ex-gay ministry. The novel tells the story of Paul Drucker, a 58-year-old psychology professor and part-time preacher. Author of Saving Our Boys from the Gay Menace, Paul is much in demand on the ex-gay lecture circuit, sharing the heterosexual gospel with those in need. As he tells his audiences, “there’s no such thing as a gay man. There are only men with unmet homoemotional love needs. And this can be fixed.” But when Paul is caught with Julian, a 21-year-old “escort” he found online, he knows his world is about to fall apart. In a world of Larry Craig and Ted Haggard, Saving Julian offers an irreverent and poignant take on the lies, hypocrisies, and downright cruelty of those who think love is a thing to be cured. 

    Buy Saving Julian on Amazon RIGHT NOW by clicking here!http://www.amazon.com/Saving-Julian-Mason-Stokes/dp/1925180751/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427161466&sr=8-1&keywords=mason+stokes

    Graphic Policy Radio with Guest Spencer Ackerman

    in Pop Culture

    Graphic Policy is back with a brand new episode with special guest, and award winning journalist Spencer Ackerman.


    Comics have often featured torture as a method for the heroes to extract information or get them to their goal. We most recently saw this in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, where torture is a key point in advancing the hero's plot. We'll discuss torture in comics, and its place in the modern stories and the world.


    Spencer Ackerman is the U.S. national security editor of the Guardian, where he was part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism for the NSA surveillance revelations provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. A former senior writer for Wired, Ackerman won the 2012 National Magazine Award for Digital Reporting for his series about Islamophobia in FBI counterterrorism training. Having reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and numerous ships, bases and a submarine, Ackerman in 2015 exposed a secretive incommunicado police detention center in Chicago called Homan Square. A Brooklyn NY native, his mother taught him to read with Bill Mantlo's Incredible Hulk run.
