The 1970s were filled with social upheaval and racial tension in America. On many occasions, it boiled over into violence. New Haven, Connecticut was the scene of violent turmoil in the wake of the city's Urban Renewal Project, which displaced minority communities from neighborhoods they had lived in for generations. Author and producer Dion Baia grew up in New Haven and has written a book called Blood in the Streets, a fictional account of the violence and social unrest of that era. His book follows veteran homicide detective Frank Suchy as he learns to cope with past and present traumas in order to track down the murderer of his best friend's child. Baia will join me to discuss the book and his real-life experiences growing up just a few short years after New Haven earned the title "Gun Wavin' New Haven". In the second hour, I’ll be joined by Dr. Warren Farrell, Chair of the Commission to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men and the author of The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It, to discuss How the recent shootings and mailbombing attempts have affected the psychology of the country and how it may have affected the mid-term elections. Don't forget about the Edwards Notebook and the Veteran's Tip of the Day! All of this and more as time allows. Listen live, join the chatroom, be a part of the show.
