It was a crazy kind of night….in a cloud of ganja smoke…as Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss presented the annual Echo Chamber “Free the Marijuana” special. From the “Free the Marijuana” anthem of Audio Active & Bim Sherman, to Bill Laswell’s “Hashisheen” album; from I.R.P.‘s “I Dream of Marijuana”, to “Roll It” from Soom T & Mungo’s Hi-Fi, it was a very heady show indeed.
We celebrate KFAI’s spring pledge drive with author Matthew Pearl, who joins us to talk about his new book, The Technologists.

His books have been New York Times bestsellers and international bestsellers translated into more than 30 languages.
In the second half of the show, we discuss the popularity of such post-apocalyptic works as The Hunger Games and The Road, and venture opinions as to why they’re so successful right now.
Kinshasha talked with renowned cardiologist, Dr. William Davis about how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.
Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.
After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic.
