The Dr. Vibe Show (general)

Aisha K. Staggers has been writing since middle school. She had her first major publication in her local newspaper’s entertainment section while a sophomore in high school, a publication in another state paper followed. Aisha has been contributing to various paper, magazines and textbooks for over 15 years.

In addition to her time as an instructor of social sciences in higher education, Aisha has served as a director of education and policy research centers, and on the staff of legislative commissions. Aisha previously served on the Executive Board of the CT Young Democrats Women’s Caucus and has remained active in politics and public policy. She is an alumni of Albertus Magnus College and Fisk University where she earned Bachelor’s in Communications and Master’s Degree in Psychology, respectively, and completed the Education Policy Fellowship Program in 2008.

Currently, Aisha is Senior Editor for BookTrib, a division of the literary public relations firm, Meryl Moss Media and a HuffPost contributor. In addition to her own work, Aisha has written liner notes for a Prince tribute album, I Wish U Heaven released December 25 and available on YouTube. In 2018, she will be contributing to scholarly work on Prince and the Minneapolis Sound and sitting on an NYU panel for a conference commemorating the 30th anniversary of his Lovesexy album.

While Aisha enjoys writing about music, she feels the most critical discussions we can have today are centered around race and intersectionality because “you can’t fix a problem you don’t acknowledge, and not acknowledging the plight of women of color and specifically Black women is a problem.”

Recently, Ms. Staggers was on our show talking about:

– The recent interview of Quincy Jones by Vulture magazine where he talked about Michael Jackson, Beatles, hip hop, Richard Pryor, Frank Sinatra, James Ingram, Brothers Johnson, Tevin Campbell and Ivanka Trump
– Justin Timberlake’s Prince tribute during the halftime performance at the most recent Super Bowl
– How Black women’s bodies are being disgraced and treated as unacceptable, her concerns about Michael Rapaport and the invisibility of Black women

Robin Koerner is a political and economic commentator for the Huffington Post, Independent Voter Network, and other outlets. He holds graduate degrees in both Physics and the Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge (U.K.). He is British born, and recently became a citizen of the USA. A decade ago, he founded WatchingAmerica.com, an organization of over 200 volunteers that translates and posts in English views about the USA from all over the world.

Robin may be best known for having coined the term “Blue Republican” to refer to liberals and independents who joined the GOP to support Ron Paul’s bid for the presidency in 2012 (and, in so doing, launching the largest coalition that existed for that candidate).

Robin’s current work as the author of the book If You Can Keep It and as a trainer and a consultant focuses on bringing people together across political divisions, with a view to winning supporters for good causes, rather than just arguments. He is driven by the conviction that more unites us as people and as Americans than divides us as partisans, and if we can find common ground and understand the forces that really drive political change, then “We the People” will be able to do what the Founders implored us to do – maintain our natural rights against power and its abuse. As he says, people and their well-being are the only legitimate ends of politics.

Recently, Mr. Koerner was on our show talking about his article The Cure for Toxic Masculinity Is Real Masculinity.

During our conversation, Mr. Koerner talked about:

– Some of his background including being born in England, his education
– His desire to pursue education and desire to become an American and the process he went through to become an American citizen
– The fact it is becoming harder for men to be men and for men to be masculine
– How the term “toxic masculinity” should not be used
– What women have told him about their experiences with some men and the effects of this behaviour has had on boys
– Holding the feminine and truly masculine sacred
