  1.

  2. Rev. Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou, Freeman Fellow with the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Pastor for formation and justice at The First Baptist Church, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. He discusses the growing movement against police violence in communities of color nationwide and the role of direct action and nonviolent civil disobedience in advancing this struggle and other allied movements working for social justice.
  3. James Henry, former chief economist at the international consultancy firm McKinsey & Company, who now serves as a senior fellow at the Columbia University Center for Sustainable International Investment and senior adviser with the Tax Justice Network.

  4. Ritt Goldstein, who had led state and federal legislative efforts for police accountability legislation in the latter half of the 1990s, chaired a 1996 “police accountability” hearing in Connecticut’s legislature, and, who received “Humanitarian Asylum” in Sweden following severe police abuse in Connecticut. He’ll talk about how his earlier efforts relate to today’s growing movement to rein in police violence in communities of color.

Kathryn Miles talks about her gripping moment-by-moment account of Hurricane Sandy. The book is Superstorm. Then — beachfront homeowners are trying to save their property from sea level rise and storm surge by building hard structures to keep the ocean at bay. But at what cost to the public? And does it even work? Marine scientist Doug Hardy tells us about his report, The Starvation of Southold’s Beaches. It’s got lessons for every coastal resident — and every U.S. taxpayer.

Featured Guests:

  1. Lev Golinkin, author of “A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka,” came to the U.S. as a child refugee from the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkov in 1990. He discusses the onging crisis in Ukraine, and the current critical juncture where the Obama administration is considering sending “lethal aid” to Kiev, a move that would certainly contribute to the escalation of a conflict, which increasingly looks like a U.S.-Russian proxy war.
  2. Jennifer Loewenstein, faculty associate in Middle East Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, assesses the West’s response to the latest atrocities committed by ISIS, President Obama’s request for Congressional authorization for military action in Iraq and Syria – and other observations on the conflict made in her recent article, “Burnt Offering.”
  3. Former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps talks about the FCC’s recently announced plan to establish “net neutrality” rules to preserve an open Internet under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, regulating Internet service providers as public utilities.
  4. David Eisenstein, Treasurer of the “Monstah” Super Political Action Committee, discusses the mission of his new progressive PAC, and how he intends to challenge today’s post-Citizens United, money-driven U.S. electoral politics.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon
