This week on Arts & Seizures, hosts Mike and Judy welcome Michael Lee Nirenberg, Director of the Documentary Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story to the program. Talking about his close relationship with the magazine, his father was one of the original art directors in the 1970's and 1980's. Michael goes on to explain the background of the magazine with Larry Flint as well as its importance in the country's culture. More than just a pornographic publication, the magazine ended up being a beacon for the First Amendment. In the last few minutes of the show, Michael also shares plans for his new project regarding the subcultural history of computer hacking. Tune in for a charged show! This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"I realized that it (Hustler Magazine) was much more of a social force than I thought it was, and the way people look at it is that it's just pictures of naked women, but the social commentary was really severe and over the top." [8:29]

This week on The Morning After, Host Jessie Kiefer welcomes back Co-Host Sari Kamin after her European excursion! Erin Sylvester also joins the program for a special ode to a beloved restaurant. In the first half of the show, the duo bring on Katrina Moore, director of the documentary, Under the Mango Tree: Food, Health, and Love in Ghana. What started out as a school trip to Ghana, Katrina became inspired by a Ghanian doctor, Dr. Abdulai, struggling to care for his community against all odds. She then decided to turn the experience into a meaningful way to fulfill her Master's thesis in New York University's Food Studies program. After creating an IndieGogo account to raise necessary funds, the project has started to garner support from around the world. Check out the link here to contribute. Later, Sari shares all about her adventures eating around Europe! Tune in for a packed show. This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"The doctor [Dr. Abdulai] saw that the homeless tended to behave very wildly in the streets. They would steal food from the women in the markets...they would be very violent...so the doctor would see that and named it as hunger because he knew hunger. He grew up hungry on the streets of Tamale himself." [18:06]

"The title Under the Mango Tree comes from the doctor's first surgery at the clinic location... The first surgery performed before there were any buildings was performed under this huge mango tree that now provides food and shade and beauty to the clinic grounds." [22:31]
