  2. Hugh MacMillan, senior researcher and lead expert on the Dakota Access Pipeline with the group Food and Water Watch, talks about growing opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline, in the context of local concerns about contamination of water supplies, and the larger issue of expanding fossil fuel infrastructure as people around the globe attempt to combat climate change.

  4. Kyle Bailey, Campaign Manager with the Committee for Ranked Choice Voting, discusses his group’s campaign to win the Maine Ranked Choice Voting Initiative, Question 5 – and the advantages an instant runoff voting system can provide voters in Maine, and the interest in other states across the country in adopting a similar system.
  5. Brad Friedman, investigative journalist, blogger, muckraker and host of the weekly “BradCast” program on KPFK Radio in Los Angeles, talks about Donald Trump’s unsupported charges of “a rigged election,” allegations of GOP-organized voter intimidation tactics, and the longstanding concern about the integrity/security of electronic voting machines.
