Catch Da Flava Radio - Gun Violence

Divine & Levi

Today we hosted a radio show on Catch Da Flava on Radio Regent. We compared and contrasted gun violence in different areas of the city. We also talked about our experiences and the dangers we have faced due to gun violence. With all the recent violence happening in Toronto we thought it was a fitting topic for the community.

It was an okay conversation between the both of us, but I think it could have been a better show with guest speakers. Divine, growing up in Regent Park, had more related instances than I had living in the upper beaches. So, having people with more experience would have made the content of the show richer. We had a moment of silence for the victims of gun violence this year and ended the show off with No Justice (featuring Big TC) by Ty Dolla $ign.

No Justice was a fitting outro track for the show because it is about the wrongful incarceration of Ty Dolla $igns brother Big TC, and it speaks to how gun violence can affect people's lives.
