The Boiling Point: EP5 Summary and Playlist


Good evening fair Golden Hawks!

Last night’s episode of The Boiling Point was a celebration of sorts, with touches on popular topics in the news and of course, a jocular look at some of this weeks funniest moments in the media.  Twitter always has an exhaustive account of any major event that happens – in play-by-play form.  One of the best this week, was Newt Gingrich’s posts on the Pearl Harbor attacks, and the attacks in response to his peculiar remarks were equally stellar.  Also, a closer look was taken at recent bizarre appointments to the U.S. President-Elect’s cabinet, and concerning events in the EU.


The tunes this week were “holiday” inspired, and included spins from Michael Jackson, Run-DMC, and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. The choices aimed to reflect that diversity can express the sentiments of a festive season just as handily as traditional favourites. If you’re not sure what form of dance expression is appropriate for a genre of music, you can get some hints from our young friend below.  Playlist to follow.

Good luck on your exams, and enjoy your holiday!
