Good afternoon, Welcome to Radioactivity, I’m Rob Lorei. Coming up an interview with University of Florida professor William McKeen about his new biography of Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.

But first a lot of listener comments have come in in the last 24 hours. Some about previous listener comments and some about the interview yesterday with Jack Cole of the groups Law Enforcement Officers Against Prohibition, a group that thinks the drug war has failed and drugs should be legalized.

Today's guest, William McKeen is a journalism professor at the University of Florida author of the new book, Outlaw Journalist: The Life and Times of Hunter Thompson.

He'll be speaking tonight at 7 p.m. at Inkwood Books in Tampa.
