Featured Guests:

  1. Investigative journalist, author and editor of ConsortiumNews.com Robert Parry, examines the role of “villain” Russia has played in the 2016 U.S. election campaign — and the concern by many that Hillary Clinton if elected president would ratchet up tensions with Putin and Russia, reviving a dangerous, new Cold War, touching on some of the points made in his recent article titled, “The Democrats’ Joe McCarthy Moment.”
  2. Sue Udry, executive director of the Defending Dissent Foundation, discusses some of the major issues re: government surveillance, privacy and security that the next president will need to address. She’ll review both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s positions on these issues — and the reforms DDF and other civil liberties groups will be advocating the next president and Congress adopt.
  3. Matt Wood, political director of the media democracy group FreePress.net, takes a critical look at the proposed merger between AT&T and Time Warner — adding to the trend of increased concentration of media ownership, and the potential negative fallout for consumers with both higher prices and a decrease in content choices.
  4. John P. Geyman, professor emeritus of family medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, talks about the recent rise in health insurance premiums under Obamacare, and the various proposals to reform the program, i.e. establish a public option — and the advocacy of Physicians for a National Health Program and other groups to move the U.S. to a single payer health care system, aka “Medicare For All.” Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s views on health care issues will be assessed.

Featured Guests:

  1. Nancy Altman, co-director of Social Security Works and co-chair of the Strengthen Social Security coalition, is the author of “The Battle for Social Security: From FDR’s Vision to Bush’s Gamble.” She discusses the positions of the two major party presidential candidates on the future of social security, and her group’s advocacy for policy changes that will both expand benefits and ensure the system remains viable for decades to come.
  2. Marge Baker, Executive Vice President with People for the American Way discusses the importance of the future of the U.S. Supreme Court in this year’s presidential election, and what’s at stake for Americans on the issues of reproductive choice, money in politics, the right of workers to organize unions and bargain collectively and lots more.
  3. Roger Salazar, a spokesperson for the “Yes on 61” campaign, explains the purpose and benefit of Proposition 61 for California’s citizens and its power as an example for other states around the country. If approved Proposition 61 would regulate drug prices by requiring state agencies to pay the same prices for prescription drugs that the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs pays.
  4. Victor Wallis, managing editor Socialism and Democracy talks about his recent article, “On the Stealing of U.S. Elections,” focusing on the topics of voter suppression laws, restrictions on the eligibility to participate in nationally televised candidate debates — and the influence of big money in winning elections and holding power.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

Gretchen Bakke talks about her terrific new book, The Grid: The Fraying Wires Between Americans and Our Energy Future. There’s no question that we need to transition fast to 100 per cent renewable energy if we are to escape the worst consequences of climate change. There’s also no question that such a transition would be great for our faltering economy, creating millions of jobs here at home and around the world. But getting there isn’t easy. It’s not just the vast power of the fossil fuel industry that’s slowing us down. It’s the dead weight of a 19th century electrical grid that is woefully unsuited to a 21st century clean energy system. Gretchen Bakke tells the whole fascinating story of how that happened, what it means for us now and how we can break free of its chains in her new book The Grid.
