In light of the recent firestorm set off by the dismissal of Prof. Brendan Bain, former head of Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training (CHART), the Yardie Skeptics team will be turning our attention to dissecting the contending issues at play. Was Prof. Bain unfairly dismissed as a result of his honest expert opinion, or did he engage in professional misconduct and rightly deserve the outcome? Do his supporters have a case for arguing a violation of free speech, or is this nothing more than the typical Christian buffoonery? Has UWI acted in defence of academic integrity, or buckled under the pressure of the global "Gaystapo?" 

And, where is Prof. Bain in the maelstrom? 

If you're a supporter of Prof. Brendan Bain, the Yardie Skeptics team wants to hear from you! Call in this Sunday, May 25th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) and share your views live on air during the broadcast. But be prepared for some strident push-back! This is a no-holds-barred discussion, not the "we can't offend our sponsors" style of media you might be familiar with. So you don't want to miss it!
