Episode 43 - What's Going On with Paul Mitchell
What’s going on? Oh us? We’re just sitting down for a talk with Dr. Paul Mitchell in this episode. He recommended we listen to Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On?” so we could discuss its influence on Dr. Mitchell’s life, the ways in which it reflected some of the social, political, cultural, and racial conflicts of its time…and how it still remains relevant today. We also discuss the roots of hip-hop music, which emerged shortly after this album. It’s a great discussion, and we hope you enjoy too. Get into it!
