Featured Guests:

  1. Ron Fein, Legal Director with the group Free Speech For People assesses the mounting evidence that Donald Trump and his regime have likely committed high crimes and misdemeanors, which many observers believe should trigger an impeachment investigation in the Republican controlled House of Representatives.
  2. Alex Lawson, executive Director of Social Security Works, examines President Trump’s proposed federal budget and how it will impact Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — as well as the work his group is doing to educate the public on the serious threat Trump poses to the nation’s social safety net programs.
  3. Paul Kawika Martin, Senior Director, Policy & Political Affairs with the group Peace Action, discusses both Trump’s recent trip to the Middle East/Europe & the NATO Summit, and the Pentagon recommendation to deploy 5,000 additional US troops to Afghanistan.
  4. Marcus Graetsch, co-director of the Left Forum, an annual conference in New York City, talks about the long history of the Forum, this year’s theme: “Resistance!,” and the opportunities at the conference for local and national connections and collaboration between progressive groups and individual activists.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

Andrew Forsthoeffel tells us about his book, Walking To Listen. It’s the amazing story of what happened when he decided to walk across America to gain life wisdom from whomever he encountered. Then, we re-broadcast an edited version of my 2014 interview with Rob Okun about his book Voice Male: The Untold Story of the Pro-feminist Men’s Movement.
