In 2002 K’wan hit the scene with his debut novel Gangsta under Triple Crown Publications. It was the first novel released by the budding house and would eventually become the building block for what is now a multimillion dollar company. What started as a therapeutic release went on to become a part of urban-lit history and an Essence bestseller, as well as drawing rave reviews overseas.
After penning his second novel, Road Dawgs, K’wan drew the attention of St. Martin’s press. The literary powerhouse quickly signed K’wan to a multi-book deal, the first of which being Street Dreams. In 2008 he received the Black Author of the year award from Black Press Radio for the novella Blow.

Our show this week is concentrated around two topics, first the scandal engulfing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and his administration. The Rude Pundit joins me to discuss what has transpired so far and where this scandal seems to be going.
Then, internationally recognized columnist and political analyst Rachel Marsden joins me to give her perspective on the Edward Snowden saga.
At the end we will have the return of our trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense or shameful nonsense, respectively.
