Everyone above the age of 16 years old is asked an important question in the United States. “Do you want to be an organ donor?” Our reporter, Carmen Scruggs was curious what happens after you say yes to this question.

Kirk Mason and Lauren Swanson, two Michigan State students, come to the studio to talk about their documentary, Every Two Minutes. Reporter Alsha Claussen takes to the wilderness and brings us a story about squirrels on campus. Reporter Carmen Scruggs explores the process of organ donation and Reporter Sarah Torrico discovers how multi-tasking is affecting our lives.
Due to some technical difficulties with the site yesterday, we didn’t get to share our freshest tracks from the week. Better late then never, though, right?

Warpaint have a new music video that is actually two music videos in one and both are our Jam of the Day, to make up for the site being down yesterday! Warpaint are so laid back that they can do nothing and it will still be effortlessly cool and awesome. The video first features the song, “Disco//Very” and then “Keep It Healthy” but they’re just hanging out with skaters dudes the whole time. Overall the video is lighthearted and fun which is a nice contrast to the dark ambiance of their music. You can catch them at Bonnaroo or Lollapalooza this summer. Their album, Warpaint is out now on Rough Trade.
This week on The Pact, Austin and Lou talk Wings and Bruins. The Wings took Game One, but the Bruins evened the series with a decisive Game Two win. What will our panelists have to say?
