Do Black Lives Matter? Two Police Shootings of Black Men Go Viral

Hosted by

In just 48 hours, videos of two more black men fatally shot by cops have gone viral. Alton Sterling was shot multiple times by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Tuesday night. Philando Castile was shot by police Wednesday during a traffic stop in Minnesota. Where do we go from here? How does the Black Lives Matter movement move forward?

Then, social media is a breeding ground for xenophobia, sexism, racism and all sorts of other unpleasantness, but Xeni Jardin was recently reminded that there are times when it can spread a more positive message.

Next, romance novels don’t show up that often on the bestseller lists and they don’t win big book awards, but tales of love and lust are hugely popular. A new documentary titled “Love Between The Covers” takes a loving look at the world of romance novels.

And finally, Wimbledon, free-agency craziness in the NBA, and other sports news with the Sklar Brothers.
