The Rap Guide to Evolution is fantastic - good solid information in rap format with humor and humanity; informative and very entertaining. This would be great for any classroom, as well as just plain fun. The Rap guide to Religion is also super - witty, funny without being preachy or condescending. Baba Brinkman is superb at opening up a good dialog on a difficult topic. The one on Climate Change is my favorite so far, I think, although they are close. More informative than other Fringe shows on the topic without being dry - he's just honest about what's happening and what the evidence is. I especially appreciate all the effort to document the science behind all of his work. It puts it way above mere entertainment - even though it is absolutely delightful, funny, and leaves you hopeful and uplifted. Not bad for an hour's work, Baba! Can't wait to see the one on Consciousness!

Baba Brinkman's Greatest Hits and all in one location. If I believed in heaven, I would say I have gone to heaven. Encores of "Rap Guide to Religion", "Rap Guide to Evolution" and "Rap Guide to Consciousness" are all great and all must be seen while you are at the Fringe festival. I have the album of each, but still go see each of the live performances as Baba is a very engaging live performer and there are always variations in each show which will surprise you. But I have to admit I am a big fan, and I host a radio show on which I play Baba when his raps match the show's theme for that week. So my bias is showing.
