Episode 511: Django Won’t Unchain Your Brain

Posted October 15, 2014 by Heit & Cheri

So many of our brains are in chains, and we cannot think beyond that which has been propagandized with us in mind. Many of the things that target us are not for our benefit, but rather are intended to provide economic gain for those who scheme to dupe us with the ultimate mind screw. Blacks […]

HOOKED: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way – Cocaine [Video]

Posted September 22, 2012 by Heit & Cheri

Summary There has been a “drug culture” since the dawn of civilization.

Thandie Newton TED Talks: Embracing Otherness, Embracing Myself (Review)

Posted November 14, 2011 by Cheri

I’ve recommended this lecture by actress, Thandie Newton, time and time again. In my opinion, everyone needs to see it because it addresses a dynamic that all of us as social creatures must face — the concept of “the self” and how it shapes out interactions with others and the world around us.

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (Review)

Posted November 8, 2011 by Cheri

The documentary consists of a compilation of interviews and narratives that chronicle the rise and fall of the Texas-based energy company, Enron. I recommend that everyone see this movie because it is an excellent example of corporate greed and corruption.
