Walk the Moon!

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY talks with Walk the Moon's lead singer, Nicholas Petricca.  Nicholas Petricca is the lead vocals, Keys, Synthesizer, and Bass Drum.  Nicholas wrote the song "Anna Sun", which was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To". Written by Petricca and New York singer/songwriter Nick Lerangis towards the end of their college career, the song is named after their professor from Kenyon College and is meant to symbolize youth. "It's about college, about maintaining that little bit of being a kid," Petricca said. "Don't be afraid to play."

Walk the Moon is an indie rock band based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band in 2008 and went through several member changes before finally coming together with current members, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman sometime in 2010. The band derives their name from the song "Walking on the Moon" by The Police. The group independently released their debut album, i want! i want!, in November 2010, receiving airplay for the track "Anna Sun". In February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management. They signed to RCA Records and released their first official album, Walk the Moon in June 2012. Their self-titled debut is composed of many of their original tracks from i want! i want! in addition to new tracks that were written specifically for the album and were meant to reflect the kind of energy the band produced in their live shows.

This week Generation whY is joined by Tori Porell from Students for Justice in Palestine. The Northeastern organization was recently suspended after handing out mock eviction notices. We bring in Tori Porell to discuss what happened to their organization, where this pressure is coming from, and why getting suspended might have been the best thing for free speech. (Please note: The views expressed in this episode are not those of KRUU-FM.)

Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) works to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and inside Israel. Their mission as students living in a democracy is to promote the cause of justice and speak out against oppression and occupation. Their goal is to raise awareness about this issue and provide students with alternative resources of information than the mainstream media. SJP will also work to provide a comfortable environment where students and faculty can discuss and debate their diverse views on the various aspects of Palestinian politics and society. They do not support violence in the region and will highlight the Palestinians; non-violent efforts for peace. SJP supports and engages in the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) campaign and believe this it is the fundamental course of action necessary for a just peace. They hope that one day Palestinians will be free from occupation and will be able to determine their own fate as an independent nation living peacefully with its neighbors.

The Age Old Question Is Answered: Can Milk Duds Be Made Healthy?

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY answers the first question in Human History, "can Milk Duds be made healthy"? Two weeks ago I challenged Fitness Superhero Miss Barbella, aka Tanell Pretorius, that she could not make God's chosen food, Milk Duds, healthy. Since Andrew Tint isn't the end all be all of judging chocolate, we luckily got a man who was, Noah Lion, of Noah's Rockin Raw ChocolateTune in live to find out if Milk Duds are going to be replaced.

Originally from South Africa, Tanell Pretorius moved to London, in the United Kingdom, at the age of 19 to pursue a career in modeling. She worked as a fashion and sports model for seven years and had agents in London, Milan, Hamburg and Cape Town. She was featured in numerous TV commercials from Sony Playstation to Veet Wax. In 2011 she moved to Fairfield, Iowa, to complete an undergraduate degree in Media and Communications at Maharishi University of Management. She has since moved her focus to writing, personal training, and Ayurvedic consultant practice. Her passions are self-development and sharing her knowledge and experience of health and wellness with others. She also writes currently for IOWA SOURCE.

Noah Lion is the Founder and Creative Director of Noah's Rock'n Raw Chocolates! Noah started making Chocolate at the age of 8, and spent his childhood building eco-friendly houses before becoming a full time Raw Chocolatier. When Noah realized how terrible processed sugar is he began making his own raw desserts, quickly founding that after adding all his favorite ingredients together everyone seemed to love his chocolate almost more than he did. From there he started serving chocolate at local markets, stores, and created the online store NoahsRocknRawChocolates.com Noah now lives in Manhattan where he provide Raw Chocolate for thousands of chocolate lovers across the nation.
