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.
