On last week's show, the detentions in Lodi's Pakistani Muslim community was a focus. How people respond to this and how they re-define themselves under pressure is this week's segment. We talk with Pakistani American organizer Samina Faheem Sundas, who also relates the kinds of threats she's faced. And, Bill Lee has written about his life in a Chinatown gang called "Chinese Playground" and his gambling addiction in "Born to Lose". He also talks about his son's running away that began Lee's journey to find past and present ties that bind, as well as what ties need to be broken. Also, Chinatown is at the heart of spoken word artist Leonard Shek's poems that he'll read on-air. Plus music, calendar and more. Contact Apex: firstname.lastname@example.org, 510-848-6767x464.
