Vocalo on WBEZ Ep. 62 - Chicago Red Stars, Talib Kweli, Emergency Contraception

In this episode: Chicago’s Women soccer team The Red Stars is back in the game after a two year hiatus. Two midfielders - Lori Chilatney and Leslie Osbourne joined Molly and Brian to chat about the sport.

Talib Kweli has been called a conscious rapper, an underground rapper, a backpack rapper.. Whatever you wanna call him, he simply says he’s a man who stands up for what he believes is right and he puts that message in his music. The prolific artist joined Jesse Menendez and spoke about playing with a live band, his upcoming record, Prisoner of Conscious, what motivates his politically and socially conscious lyrics, and commented on his recent dialogue with Lupe Fiasco about the affect lyrics and art have on our communities.

Also, Veronica Arreola, the assistant director of UIC’s Center for Research on Women and Gender, mother, and feminist blogger, and abstinence teacher Moises Pacheco join Brian and Molly in-studio to talk about over-the-counter emergency contraception - the pros and cons.

The DJ mix comes from Big Once. Tune in!
