 Over the past year, “ThinkwingRadio with Mike Honig” has brought you dozens of interesting guests and many uncommon or rarely heard topics of discussion. We have callers from across the political and ideological spectrum, and I endeavor to treat them all with respect and courtesy so we can generate a real flow of ideas. You can listen to almost any show I’ve ever done (going back to May 2010) by going to the archive tab.

Welcome to Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig (@ThinkwingRadio), a listener call-in show (every Wednesday night from 10-11PM CT) on KPFT-FM 90.1 (Houston). My engineer and discussion partner is Egberto Willies (@EgbertoWillies).

Listen live on the radio or on the internet from anywhere in the world! When the show is live, we take calls at 713-526-5738. (Long distance charges may apply.) 

For the purposes of this show, I operate on two mottoes:

#ThinkwingRadio: August 20, 2014, 10-11PM, @KPFT-FM 90.1 (Houston). GUESTS: Egberto Willies & Eric Johnson. TOPIC(s): A JUDGMENT-FREE ZONE FOR A DISCUSSION OF RACE RELATIONS. WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? [AUDIO]

SHOW AUDIO: kpft_2014-08-20_2200 RACE AND CULTURE, EGBERTO WILLIES & ERIC JOHNSON

NOTE AFTER THE SHOW: Thanks so much to Egberto and Eric and the callers who were willing to participate and take advantage of the show’s “Safe Zone”, and share honesty and candor, and allow us to have a true dialogue. This show meant a lot to me. ~ Mike

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT TONIGHT’S SHOW: Race is a difficult, and even risky, topic for public discussion. Sometimes, one moment of naïve candor or an unfortunate turn of phrase can raise a firestorm of protest and criticism.

I am hoping that tonight’s show can be a “Judgment-Free Zone” in order to encourage a real and useful discussion of the challenges we ALL face when it comes to race relations.
