Black Hair vs. Baseball

Episode #2 from The Arcade

This week…

  • We speak with Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about her new book, Americanah, and the problems with most novels about race. 
  • Journalist J.B. MacKinnon gathers us around an imaginary campfire to tell us the story of “The Amazing Survivor Bear.” 
  • And Citizen Lab director Ron Deibert, author of the just released Black Code, gives us a peek inside the digital arms industry and the world of cyber-warfare.
