Featured Guests:

  1. Chip Berlet, a former analyst with Political Research Associates, who has written about racism and intolerance for over 4 decades. Co-author with Matthew N. Lyons of the book, “Right-Wing Populism in America: Too Close for Comfort,” Berlet will discuss the 2016 election campaign and many of the points raised in his recent article, “Corporate Press Fails to Trump Bigotry”, and the links between xenophobic, racist political rhetoric and the real world violence it has produced in America and around the world.
  2. Citizen activist, author and four-time independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader, talks about the scheduled opening this week of The American Museum of Tort Law in his hometown of Winstead, CT, dedicated to the understanding of the U.S. Civil Justice system and the critical role it plays in protecting the health, safety and personal freedoms of all American citizens. Ralph will also comment on the latest developments in the 2016 presidential campaign.
  3.
