Featured Guests:

  1. Karen Orenstein, International policy analyst with the environmental group Friends of the Earth, discusses the obstacles to reaching an international accord on regulating carbon emissions – and the damage suffered by developing nations, such as the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, as a result of inaction by industrial nations like the U.S.
  2. Dana Frank, professor of history at the University of California, Santa Cruz, talks about the upcoming presidential election in Honduras on November 24th – and the context of the current campaign relating to the 2009 coup, continuing repression of progressive activists while U.S. aid flows to the military and police.
  3. Gareth Porter, an independent investigative journalist and historian who specializes in U.S. national security policy. Porter, author of the forthcoming book, “Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare,” to be published in February 2014, assesses the ongoing negotiations between Iran and the “5+1 group of nations,” (the U.S., Russia, China, France, Britain – the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) to reach a deal on limiting Iran’s capacity to build nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of harsh international economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
  4. Margaret Flowers, M.D., a former congressional fellow with the group Physicians for a National Health Program, now currently co-director of It’s Our Economy and co-host of “Clearing the FOG” radio show. Dr. Flowers discusses the troubled first month of the Affordable Care Act, through both a medical and political lens. She’ll provide analysis on how the flawed introduction of ObamaCare may impact the future debate on the single-payer universal health care option, (Medicare for All) and the importance of a statewide single payer experiment scheduled to get underway in Vermont in 2017.

Featured Guests:

  • Gerry Condon, member of the Board of Directors of the group Veterans for Peace discusses VFP’s advocacy work on several fronts including: working for the fair treatment of returning war veterans, ending the war in Afghanistan, support of war resisters and the “Front Lines International” project.
  • Kimberly Fountain, Social Security Expansion Campaign Director with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee talks about her group’s effort to expand the Social Security system by “scrapping the cap” on what millionaires and billionaires pay into Social Security contributions, financing benefit expansion and extending Social Security’s solvency for decades.
  • Ellen Brown, Chairman and President of the Public Banking Institute and author of 11 books, including “Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How We Can Break Free,” discusses government regulation and oversight of the nation’s banks after the 2008 financial crisis — including the tentative agreement by JPMorgan Chase Bank to pay the U.S. Department of Justice a record $13 billion to settle civil investigations into mortgage-backed securities in the period before the 2008 financial meltdown — and the recent jury verdict that found Bank of America Corp. liable for fraud in the sale of defective mortgages through its Countrywide unit. Brown will also outline the public banking model that her group advocates.
  • David Hoffman, founder and president emeritus of Internews, the world’s largest non-governmental media development organization and author of the new book, “Citizens Rising: Independent Media and the Spread of Democracy,” examines the connection between independent media and the prevention of conflict, facilitating free elections, exposing corruption, promoting nation-building and social change?
