Politics And Reality Radio: Russia, And The Syrian Disaster; The Truth About Pitbulls
October 18, 2016

This week, our show is 100% election-free! Or it is after the intro, anyway.

First, we're joined by Mark Goldberg, editor of UN Dispatch and host of the Global Dispatches podcast, to talk about the new UN General Secretary, Antonio Guterrez, Syria and the growing diplomatic mess between the US and Russia.

Then we'll switch gears and talk about pit bulls, and the mythology that's developed around these dogs -- one that makes them the most frequently abused and abandoned breeds -- with Bronwen Dickey, author of Pit Bull: The Battle Over an American Icon.

Playlist:
Paul McCartney and Wings: "Live and Let Die"
The Monkees: "Gonna Buy Me a Dog"
Otis Redding: "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)"

Can you help us out?
