#38 The Ignored Genocide of WWI with Rapper/Entrepenuer Ruslan

September 27, 2017

Ruslan Karaoglanov immigrated Southern California with his family as a young child.

He learned the immigrant work ethic from his parents and hip hop from the neighborhood. 

Which is a story we've heard before. What makes Ruslan unique is that his family are Armenians...6-8 million decendents of an ancient European empire who share a common language, culture and (often times) faith, but are scattered throughout the U.S., Russia, Brazil, Germany, Iran, Lebenan, and a handful of other countries. 

During WWI, the Ottoman Empire (modern day Turkey) murdered millions of Armenians. It's a travesty the United States still refuses to acknowledge due to relations with Turkey. 

For an episode about mass murder, we also have a lot of fun talking hip hop, entrepenuerism and adjusting to life in the United States. 

Check out Ruslan's latest project, Indie Jones, on iTunes.

#37 Refugees: Bring Them Here, Help Them There…or Both? With Griffin Jackson of Christianity Today, Chicago Tribune, Relevant Magazine

September 15, 2017

Griffin Jackson lived in Lebenan, a place where up to 1/3 of the entire (albiet tiny) nation is made up of refugees. 

For two people who share a very similar worldview and generally agree on how to handle the refugee crisis, we find a lot to disagree about.

#35 “Killing Terorrists.” Trump’s Afghanistan Plan w/Helicopter Pilot KyleAnne Hunter

August 29, 2017

This episode was recorded on Thursday, 8/28...when Trump's Afghanistan plan was the biggest news in the nation. 

Within 24 hours of recording, Hurricane Harvey hit, Trump pardoned Joe Apiro, and declared that he would go after Dreamer immigrants and would move forward on the transgender military ban. 

But this is not a show that chases headlines for ratings or clicks. Neighbors Again is always a deep dive, so we're going to have to deal with all of this breaking news one piece at a time. 

Kyleanne Hunter is a combat vet helicopter pilot who has a foot in both the legislative and academic worlds. She joins me to discuss what victory in Afghanistan might look like, and how we can get there.
