Destressing Stress

Dr. Mike Evans tackles stress with his latest You Tube video. It's called "90:10", and it comes on the heels of his previous, award-winning video about exercise, "23 1/2 Hours". THAT video has already generated more than 3 million YouTube hits. Dr. Mike joined Mary to talk about stress and what you can do to best it.

Listen audio (runs 12:18) to Mike's conversation with Mary.

You can view "90:10" on Dr. Mike's YouTube channel.
And check out Dr. Mike's website for more information on this and other health-related topics.

AfroCubism Explained

And Reuben Maan is just the "man" to explain it. Fresh Air's world music columnist joined Mary Ito to talk about the superband that almost never-was. It all began with some of Mali's best musicians...and some of Cuba's. Mix in some passport issues...the Buena Vista Social Club...and a lot of intervening time...and AfroCubism is the result.
Listen audio (runs 6:27) as Reuben explains what happened.

AfroCubism will play a rare concert in Toronto on June 12 as part of the Luminato Festival.
