Financial Times' Edward Luce on Democracy, Trump and American Apathy, BBC Witness: First Bicycle Sharing Scheme, And Global Notes: Latinxt Festival
On today's show:
- Trump’s decision to “disinvite” the NFL Superbowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles from a White House visit is a topic of scholarly debate. We’ll talk with British writer and commentator, Edward Luce.
- Tomorrow, WBEZ will talk smack to our not-for-profit rivals for our annual preview of the Chicago Bike to Work Challenge. So, we take a look at how Bike-sharing got started with the BBC.
- The very first LatiNxt (LATIN-NEXT) festival is coming to Chicago this month. It highlights several rising artists across Latin America who use modern techniques, but traditional sounds.
