Gun violence in the US becomes a political issue every time there’s a mass shooting in the nation. But people are killed every single day in the US at an individual level and their deaths barely make a blip in the news, even when they are children. My guest Gary Younge, the award winning British journalist for the Guardian will join us to discuss his powerful new book Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives. Plus Iranian American Muslim comedian Negin Farsad joins us to discuss her new book, How To Make White People Laugh. I had spoken to her before the Presidential election about President elect Donald Trump’s demonization of Muslims and plans for a Muslim registry.
