Cell Phone Tacking, HIV/Aids in the Black Community, and the Fracking Boom

First thing on this morning’s show, Pat Kelly, founder and president of a Family Affair, an HIV-AIDS ministry at Victory Tabernacle Deliverance Temple in Orangeburg, South Carolina and a founding member of the Positive Women’s Network USA examines the intricacies of HIV status and how HIV impacts the black community. Nate Cardozo, a Senior Staff Attorney on the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s digital civil liberties team illuminates the finer points of Supreme Court Cell Phone Tracking Case: Carpenter v. the United States, another instance of potential privacy violations. As Fracking continues and is normalized, despite its evident levels of destructive environmental impact,  New York Times Journalist Blaire Briody illuminates how the fracking ‘Gold Rush’ impacts a specific town. She joins us to discuss her book on the subject, The New Wild West.
