On Second Thought For Monday, June 26, 2017

Jun 26, 2017

First, walking might be good for your health, but maybe not so good for your safety. Last year, 236 pedestrians were killed in Georgia. That’s a 40 percent increase in just two years. We discuss this with Sally Flocks, President and CEO of PEDS, which advocates for pedestrian safety in Georgia.

Next, President Trump has accused the news media of not covering terrorist attacks adequately. New research from Georgia State University shows the president is partially right. Researchers find there is a systematic bias in the way terrorism is covered, and an attacker’s identity can have an impact on coverage. We talk with Tony Lemieux of the Global Studies Institute at Georgia State University.

Finally, David Barbe is a legend in the Athens music scene. He runs the Chase Park Transduction recording studio, and has produced albums for Drive-By Truckers, Deerhunter, New Madrid. His new solo album, “10th of Seas,” is slated for release in August. We talk to him ahead of a performance at 529 Bar in Atlanta Saturday, July 1.
