There’s no denying it- we are living in the digital age! Even here at Blunt Radio, we are spread across various platforms- facebook, twitter, even soundcloud. But when does a habit become an obsession, and when does an obsession become an addiction? And which generation is the most addicted?
Hosts Aidan Richman and Ansel Knight will be deconstructing the topic on the air. The first half will feature Dr. Larry Rosen, who is the Professor Emeritus at California State University Dominguez Hills, and the author of several books including the Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World. On the second half, they will be speaking to Tanya Schevitz, who is a communications manager with the Rebooters- a nonprofit that is known for the national day of “unplugging”. Tune in to Blunt Youth Radio tonight from 7:30-8:30pm EST on 90.9fm & 104.1fm (WMPG)!!

Since the election, political tension has risen across the nation. People express their dissent in different ways all across the political spectrum, from organized boycotts to acts of vandalism, and a lack of communication between those affected.
It’s another chapter in America’s long history of protesting the status quo. And one thing that hasn’t changed is the tension between peaceful demonstration and violent retribution. On tonight’s show, Milena Germon and Daniel In are discussing nonviolent activism and it’s place in our day to day interactions, activism and advocacy, as well as conflict resolution.
Tonight’s stellar guests include Jonathan White, Director of the Bentley Service-Learning Center and associate professor of sociology at Bentley University; Nathan Broaddus, Maine Quaker and leader who has served on the Peace and Social Concerns Committee at the Portland Friends Meeting; Bangor High School student Olivia Baldacci; and June Sapiel, Native American Rights activist, speaker, and Human Resources Specialist for the The Penobscot Indian Nation.
Join us on WMPG, 90.9fm and/or 104.1fm from 7:30-8:30pm!

Tonight’s show is pretty [bleep]ing great. Two of Blunt’s finest Aidans- Aidan Richman and Aidan Mitchell- discuss censorship, safe spaces, trigger warnings and more.

She’s also the author of Lessons in Censorship.
During the second half, other Blunt members will join the discussion to discuss their experiences with censorship and self-expression.
Here’s a gnarly diagram from Catherine’s book, Lessons in Censorship, elaborating a little more on the silencing of student speech.
