The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Monday, August 29, 2016
After a huge finale, fans thought J.K. Rowling was through with the wizarding world. However, she’s teamed up with John Tiffany and playwright Jack Thorne for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” set nineteen years in the future of the Harry Potter universe. The book follows the title character and his son, Albus Severus Potter. Despite projections for the book to be the best-selling of 2016, the story’s stage play format and co-authorship has some die-hard Potterheads upset and underwhelmed by the highly-anticipated release. We’ll discuss the new work's reception and get your reactions on the latest addition to the beloved franchise.

With every Instagram follower, Facebook friend request, and Tinder swipe, social media continues to validate and mediate our relationships. Our lives are saturated by screens that are replacing face-to-face conversations, possibly impending real connections. Despite 92% of us acknowledging this, the majority of us still scroll through our phones while talking to others in real life. Today we’ll be discussing this new-age way of talking, it’s implications on our relationships, and how it may affect the way future generations communicate.

VAB Award Winner - Bad Blood
Tuesday, 
August 9, 2016
The little-known Rosenwald Syphilis Study was a public health service experiment in 1929 that tested the effects of untreated syphilis in the human body. Thousands of African-Americans in 5 southern states, including Virginia, were unknowingly injected with syphilis. Some were given penicillin for treatment and others were left untreated. Many died from this experiment, and harmful toxins were inadvertently passed through the bloodstreams of future generations, causing them to have complications and even die. Today, we'll examine the history of perhaps the most well known example of unethical medical research through the eyes of one local woman and her realization that her family is still suffering the effects of The Rosenwald Syphilis Study.
