This is a re-broadcast. I'm very happy with this interview and the response it got. I hope you enjoy it. 

Hey everyone, this is my interview with Edwin; a Phd candidate in sociology. I say in my commentary on this one that I didn't have time to do any background fact checking but eventually I did so most of the things that I thought needed to be verified are in the links below. Edwin also gave me a bunch of links and studies which are also available for you to read.
