Conspiracy Theories, investigated by the Youth Collective
That's the topic of this month's Underground, hosted by the KBOO Youth Collective. We'll get into assassination's, like JFK and Marliyn Monroe, Fake Deaths, like Elvis, and the moon landing, among other things we choose to investigate, like Kyle's fridge, aliens, and more!
Tonight the KBOO Youth Collective talks about authority, our relationship to authority, and authority overstepping their boundaries. We have pieces on police brutality and the Aaron Campbell tragedy, how we are always under the thumb of some authority or another, and authorities we trust. Plus whatever else we come up with.
The Youth Collective will take this hour to discuss things we hate, like: Neonazis, McDonalds, Valentine's Day, homophobia, "The Box", Great books that are made into bad movies, and much much more! We'll be ranting, but not completely.
The guest is Shoshana Johnson, author of "I'm Still Standing: From Captive U.S. Soldier to Free Citizen--My Journey Home."
In March of 2003 world headlines were made when a U.S. army convoy was attacked in the city of An-Nasiriyah en route to Baghdad. Several soldiers were killed and others were taken prisoner.
Jessica Lynch became the face and name associated with this tragedy, but another female soldier, Shoshana Johnson, was also wounded and captured in the ambush. Shoshana became the first black female prisoner of war in United States history. She was held for twenty-two days.

This segment contains excerpts of his songs and a discussion of his life and music with Brad and the Old Mole's Bill Resnick. Hulett died in January. Here's an obituary with several video clips.
