The 411 Live Podcast (S6) Ep 5 – Gerrymandering, Politics and Voting

Gerrymandering is the process of drawing voting districts in order to give one party an advantage over another. It's often called "the art of rigging elections." With gerrymandering, politicians are able to choose their voters instead of the other way around. This is a very serious issue that affects our democracy and undermines fair representation for citizens across America. On this episode of The 411 Live, Beverly Taylor invites Chris Walton, former President of the Democratic Party of Milwaukee County, What gerrymandering is, how its done by both Democrats and Republicans but how its often associated with Republicans.

The 411 Live Podcast (S5) Ep 12 – Do Relationships Suck or Is Dating Worse?

On this week’s episode of The 411 Live, Beverly Taylor talks to Jason Boyd, Life Coach and Author to talk about whether or not relationships suck and if dating is even worse. Jason Boyd is the author of “The Reasons Why Relationships Suck but Dating is Worse” and strongly believes women are naturally meant to be the leaders in a relationship and if they knew this and act accordingly, relationships could greatly improve for many. He believes this theory is based on the fact that men naturally pursue women and women naturally instruct men and challenge them to be better. Meanwhile, if a woman pursues a man then, as Jason Boyd states, “when the mouse pursues the cat, the cat will still eat the mouse. As a man, you don’t set the tone in the relationship.” What do you think about this topic? Does modern American society misunderstand the male-female relationship dynamic?
