Keep Your Mind In Tune – Episode 3
As Kunj Shah and Dave Brandwein explain of the show’s third installment,
In Episode 3 we’re changing up the format a bit and doing just one in-depth interview per show. This allows us to focus more on current events, but spend the time to dive into the history behind them as well. Professor Bertrall Ross of UC Berkeley Law helps us understand how this latest Supreme Court nomination is reflective of the current times, how it might affect the election, and the history and purpose of all courts throughout the country. We also kick off the show with musical guest Maggie Rose. We discuss her new single and the pandemic, followed by a solo performance of “20/20”.
Keep Your Mind In Tune helps give music fans a better understanding of the issues we face in the U.S. today via interviews with experts—including professors, authors, lawyers, activists, and law enforcement—covering various timely topics, all hosted by a rotating panel of musicians. The show aims to bring a fact-based approach to informing current events and seeks to ensure that viewers receive information directly from people with hands-on experience who work daily in their respective fields, rather than relying on social media platforms as their main source of news.
