Guest: Jeffrey Pilcher, Professor of Food History at the University of Toronto-Scarborough  Growing up in small town America, the notion of eating something from a vendor with a cart on the street was foreign to me, unless you count the ice cream truck in summer. But visit any major city in the world and you’ll see food being sold on the street: crepes, noodles, waffles, knishes, kebabs, tacos, or tamales. Taste the street food and you’ll get a taste of a community’s culture, ethnic influences and history.

Child Soldiers: Girls in Warfare

17 MINS

Guest: Liz Jevtic-Somlai, PhD, Visiting Professor of Political Science at BYU  A few years ago, a campaign group called Invisible Children released a movie that went viral – it’s been viewed more than 100 million times and came with a call to action: help catch infamous African warlord Joseph Kony.  That was 2012 and Joseph Kony is still free, still kidnapping children to make soldiers of them. Boys only 7 or 8 years old, given weapons, forced to commit atrocities. But not just boys. Visiting BYU political science professor Liz Jevtic-Somlai says the role of girls as child soldiers is often overlooked or misunderstood. Her research indicates girls are also some of the most challenging child soldiers to rehabilitate once the conflict ends.
