Hosts Aaron Frankel and Jonathan Kanarek discuss the riots going on in Egypt, Middle East, and Northern Africa. Jonathan – a UT Political Science and Anthropology Grad – explains what causes riots, the economic affects of the riots currently going on, and if we could see similar riots in the United States in the foreseeable future.
Technical mishaps have largely been eliminated, but a neighborhood cat in heat outside the studio sends the two into laughter. No animals were harmed in the making of this podcast – despite a strong desire.
