Talk of Terror
March 24, 2016
The Chief and Kevin O’Neill start off the show discussing the recent terror attack in Brussels and ask what can be done to stop terrorism; greater surveillance? better pat downs? closing the borders? Later in the first hour they discuss the reality of climate change before Fari Hamzei joins the conversation with his thoughts on the Brussels attack and an examination of Syria’s past events that paved the way for ISIS. With next round of March Madness kicking off tonight, the Chief and Kevin root hard for their alma mater while Maddie holds her grudge against Notre Dame for edging out Michigan in the tournament’s first round.
