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.
