April 2018 marks 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr delivered his last speech, the day before his assassination.
In his final speech, known as ‘I’ve Been to the Mountaintop’, King calls for unity, economic actions, boycotts and non-violent protests, whilst challenging the United States to live up to its ideals. The day after he delivered the speech in Memphis, Tennessee he was assassinated in his motel.
As a society, we have come very far since Martin Luther King Jr delivered speeches such as ‘I’ve Been to the Mountaintop’ and, perhaps his most famous speech, ‘I Have a Dream’.
In the latest episode of 10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr), George Kup and Callum Gurr invite you to share your opinion on whether you think Martin Luther King Jr’s dream has become a reality, following the live vote on TeenScope.

It’s a tough time to be young at the moment.
We’re the generation who are more stressed than ever before, with more debt than ever before, and with less chance of being able to afford nice things than ever before. And that’s before you even mention Brexit.
But Alec Feldman didn’t want it to be this way. He thought that there must be an alternative. We can either work together with all groups in society to create the future we all want – or we can turn on the old people who made this mess in the first place. No prizes for guessing which he picked.
Alec decided he wanted to found a new political party – but unlike the dozens of “centrist” parties that have been founded on Twitter and promptly fizzled out, Alec’s new party is something different – it’s run by the young, for the young. It’s also a very democratic movement – all aspects of the party, from its name to its policies, are decided by its members – all of the W!ZARD Radio Station listeners.
Its name – DoubleU DoubleU DoubleU Dot Party Dot Com (we don’t own the website yet) was made up by listener Mike, it’s logo was created from ideas by listeners Kayleigh, Daniel and Marie; and this week, Alec wanted suggestions for foreign policies – basically, he wanted to know which countries we should like, and which ones we shouldn’t’.
Needless to say, the outcome wasn’t quite what he was expecting – find out why by pressing play below.

Following the recent allegations about Facebook's misuse of data - particularly with the Cambridge Analytica scandal rocking the social network and resulting in founder Mark Zuckerberg taking an 'apology tour' around the media - there has been increased discussion about users deleting the social network all together.
Most users get Facebook when they are 10 years old, although officially the minimum age that a user can have an account on the platform is 13 years old. For some users, particularly young adults, the platform holds memories and data about their entire teenage-hood.
However, some users are suggesting the Facebook's obvious misuse of data is starting to tip them over the edge, with some going as far as deleting their accounts on the service. However, other users are less surprised about the revelations.
In the latest episode of 10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr), George Kup and Callum Gurr invite you to share your opinion on whether you will be deleting your Facebook account, following the live vote on TeenScope.
