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.

‘Digging in the Dirt’ at 5:00 PM, features Taggart Siegel, talking about “Seed – The Untold Story, a new film from filmmakers Taggart Siegel, and Jon Betz.” We’re in the midst of a crisis of genetic diversity: we’ve lost over 94% of our vegetable seed varieties, leaving our food supply dangerously vulnerable to blight and famine. Chemical seed corporations only worsen this tenuous situation, blocking the genetic differentiation that keeps our crops healthy by patenting them. Thankfully, an inspiring ensemble of farmers, scientists, and seed savers works tirelessly to combine ancient stewardship with emerging science. “Seed” tells their story — and the larger history of human agriculture — with equal parts whimsy and rage.
