Raza Rumi, a Pakistani author, journalist and blogger and follower of Sufi thought talks about the tradition of hospitality, friendship and loyalty and the divergent ways these traditions shape and reflect Eastern and Western cultures.

Featured Guests:

  1. John Cusick, a fellow at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund who co-led the group’s “Prepared to Vote” efforts at the polls on the November 6 election, assesses the voter suppression tactics and disenfranchisement of voters in the 2018 midterm election — and initiatives to eliminate deliberate partisan efforts to place obstacles in the way of all Americans’ right to vote.
  2. Lisa Gilbert, Vice President of Legislative Affairs with Public Citizen, discusses President Trump’s firing of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the mobilization of people across the U.S. who protested in over 1,000 cities demanding that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation be protected.
  3. Norman Solomon, co-founder of RootsAction.org and founding director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, talks about his recent article, “A Challenge to the New Blue Congress: Govern as Progressives,” where he’ll assess the strength of left movements’ capacity to influence the Democratic party agenda in the House — and concerns about the next 2 years of the Trump presidency.
  4. Tom Swan, executive director of the Connecticut Citizen Action Group discusses progressive gains in the state legislature in the 2018 election, and the work CCAG and other progressive activist groups will be doing to influence public policies of the incoming administration of Connecticut governor-elect Ned Lamont.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

We spend the hour talking with Chris Feliciano Arnold about his book, The Third Bank of the River: Power and Survival in The 21st Century Amazon. It’s a sweeping investigation of crime and corruption in the Amazon — all the more relevant now that the extreme right-wing politician Jair Bolsinaro has been elected President of Brazil. We originally spoke with Chris Arnold before the election, but were able to get a post-election update from him today to add to the program.
