Episode 196, The ABC Book of Thoughtcrimes

This show is my podcast version of the time-honored classic, the "ABC Book", assigned by school teachers to grade school children all across this great land of ours:
  • Pick a topic--how about "Black History"?
  • Staple together a book of 26 blank pages, plus a cover with a nice picture.
  • Think of something or someone that starts with the letter A, and put it on page 1.  I know...Muhammed Ali!  Write a few sentences about Mohammed Ali, and add a picture of him for good measure.
  • Think of something or someone that starts with the letter B, and put it on page 2.   I know...Brown v. Board of Education! Or maybe...the Black Panthers!  Add a few sentences and paste in a picture.
  • and on and on and on and on and on and on through the letter Z.
  • Isn't this fun, kids?  And CREATIVE too!
Thanks for the fantastic idea, Teach.

I think you'll find my version a little, shall we say, Orwellian?

Fun show, controversies galore, and just over 60 minutes.  Give it a listen!
