In the West, we tend to think of albinism with a low-grade curiosity at most, but in East Africa, being an albino means a lower lifespan due to skin cancer at best, and being hunted and slaughtered for your body parts at worst. This week we welcome Dan Holcomb of Lahash International to talk about the culture of albinism in countries like Tanzania. This week’s news: Portland Podcast Festival round up!, the history of “Baby Shark,” exciting new cheese news, Red Dead Redemption, Lou Dobbs’s diction, Apple’s laptop mic, Wapato Jail to be demolished, China goes to the moon, redefining the kilogram, and more! Enjoy!
