Protests against Wall Street and financial institutions, collectively known under the name of Occupy Wall Street, are spreading across the country. We heard about why the protests are starting to surge now. Yahoo News and ABC News will begin to share content. American Airlines could be close to bankruptcy. Commentator Angela Glover Blackwell discussed her ideas for getting minorities back to work. We heard about the old-school way of fixing broken gadgets in Mozambique. And Kai spoke with Tony D’Souza about his new book, “Mule,” a novel about helping transport drugs as a way to get by. And here are the songs we played:

  • Magic – GirlsBuy
  • Floating Vibes – Surfer BloodBuy
