On today’s show, Kai spoke with author and history professor Rob Ruck about how race in baseball has changed in the past few years, and what might be causing it. We heard a story from Indonesia about “jockeys,” people who are making a business out of the government’s rule that three people have to ride in a car during rush hour traffic. John Galliano has been officially sacked from Christian Dior — what does this mean for the luxury brand? Thousands of foreign workers are trying to get out of Libya as the violence gets more heated. The protests in Wisconsin over the governor’s pending restrictions on union workers’ rights continue. And health care reform, and the differences between Medicaid and Medicare, are also placing a burden on states’ budgets. And here are the songs we played:

  • Idiotental – GuzBuy
  • Strawberry Street – Lili HaydnBuy
  • Take Me Out to the Ball Game – The BarnardsBuy
