You’ve just tuned in to The Daily Beat and welcome to the very first show!
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. Don’t miss a beat!
On today’s show, we reference a Huffington Post article by Eleanor Goldberg titled “Super Bowl Is Single Largest Human Trafficking Incident In U.S.: Attorney General.”
Also, Colorlines identifies five questionable Super Bowl ads. See the original post here. What do you think? Are these ads offensive?
Finally, today is the trial of Jeffeth James, a man assaulted and beaten by the NYPD last March.
Music for today’s show provided by Dog Bite and the BTR’s own DJ Latola.
