Friday means our Breakroom will be getting back together to discuss a week full of interesting headlines. We talk about Snoop Dogg's disapproval of the “Roots” remake, Taylor Swift as an “Aryan idol” and what the fuss is about the forthcoming all-female “Ghostbusters” movie.
Then, the Breakroom gang gives their thoughts on more news from the past week, including Big Boi's issues with modern-day mothers, a new device that lets you lick your cat, and who's to blame for the death of Harambe the gorilla.
The Breakroom gang joins host Celeste Headlee to weigh in on the week's news. Our panel this week includes people who all work in agriculture. We have Andrew Thompson of Dixie, Matthew Raiford of Brunswick, Haylene Green of Atlanta, and Whit Whitmire of Atlanta.
DeKalb County police officer Robert Olsen was indicted on six counts, including felony murder, by a grand jury Thursday night. Olsen now faces criminal charges in the death of 27-year-old Anthony Hill, an Air Force veteran who was unarmed and naked at the time he was fatally shot by the officer. Host Celeste Headlee speaks with Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Christian Boone about the case going forward. Plus, a recent report by the American College Health Association found nearly one in six students has been diagnosed with or treated for anxiety in the past year.
