The Daily Beat is a daily news podcast inspired by the power of social media to spark social change. Tune in Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. as BTR’s social media director, DJ Jen, culls the “Twitterverse” and “blogosphere” to bring you the top stories regarding social justice and human rights issues.

Not to mention, we’ll also feature some of BTR’s top tracks.

Yesterday, BBC News Africa reported that hair thieves in South Africa are targeting dreadlocks.


Please read the following Jezebel article reporting that a “college rape survivor faces potential expulsion for ‘intimidating’ her rapist.”
