Maureen Faulkner On Mumia Abu-Jamal’s

Today, Maureen Faulkner called into the Dom Giordano Program to give us an update on the now almost 40 year old back and forth with the Philadelphia criminal justice system after her husband, Daniel Faulkner, was murdered by activist Mumia Abu-Jamal. After serving 38 years in jail, six lost boxes of prosecution files breathed new life into the case, potentially leading to a new trial. Last week, Maureen came back to Philadelphia to protest District Attorney Larry Krasner for his take on the Abu-Jamal case, and his record of reform that has led to lackadaisical sentences for criminals. Faulkner fears that her husband’s murderer will be allowed to walk.

Ray Didinger on the Eagles | Week 5

All-time great Philadelphia sports journalist Ray Didinger joins Dom in a regular weekly segment during the Eagles’ regular season in which Dom and Ray discuss the Eagles’ most recent game. This week against the New York Jets, the Eagles’ wiped the floor with the opposition but Ray is quick to point out that the Jets aren’t even worthy of being an NFL team. Also, Ray and Dom discuss the gruesome injury that Steelers backup QB Mason Rudolph suffered, and whether or not football could ever be considered a safe sport.
