John Ghazvinian – The Hidden History of U.S. Iran Relations
03 May, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States have been at loggerheads ever since America's ally, the shah, was overthrown in 1979. Iran was an important part of U.S. hegemony in the Middle East. In the decades since, Washington has waged cyber warfare, drone strikes, assassinations, sabotage and sanctions against Tehran. Washington and its media echo chamber portray Iran...
Lawrence Ferlinghetti – A Defense of Poetry
26 Apr, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

A great practitioner, publisher and defender of poetry was Lawrence Ferlinghetti. He passed away just shy of his 102nd birthday earlier this year. Born in Yonkers, New York in 1919, his education was paused for World War II and Atlantic and Pacific tours in the U.S. Navy. He witnessed firsthand the ruins of Nagasaki after the atomic bombing in 1945....
Jeffery Robinson - The South, Slavery & the Lost Cause
19 Apr, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The Lost Cause is rooted in the South’s search for justification and the need to find a substitute for victory in the Civil War. In attempting to deal with defeat, the South created an image of the war as a noble epic fought by brave men. The war, the mythology goes, wasn’t about preserving slavery it was about Southern values....
Mehdi Hasan, et al. – Anti-Zionism is Anti-Semitism [Debate]
12 Apr, 2021 | 0:57:03 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Is Noam Chomsky an anti-Semite? How about Amy Goodman and Naomi Klein? The question may sound absurd. Yet, according to the definition of anti-Semitism that more than 30 countries including the United States under the Biden administration, Chomsky, Goodman and Klein could very well be labeled as such. Why? They are critical of Israeli policies. Zionism is the late 19th...
Timothy Snyder - The State of American Democracy
05 Apr, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

There’s a new Jim Crow in the U.S. This 2.0 version is legislation passed by politicians who mouth pieties about protecting our sacred right to vote and the integrity of elections. After what is considered one of the most secure and verified elections in U.S. history there is a wave of voter suppression laws being proposed across the country. According...

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Because of the recent shootings in Atlanta and Boulder, we are rebroadcasting this program. Gun violence exacts an enormous toll on U.S. society-claiming tens of thousands of lives every year. Many more thousands are wounded and scarred physically and psychologically. From malls to schools from places of worship to concerts there is no safe space. Weapons of war are easily...
Noam Chomsky – Consequences of Capitalism
22 Mar, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The consequences of capitalism during the pandemic have revealed glaring failures and monstrous brutalities. It’s a highly unstable economic system, careening from crisis to crisis. For a handful it produces unparalleled levels of wealth. But for the many, if they even have a job, it’s a pay check to pay check existence. What are the priorities? The U.S. spends close...
Frank Smyth – The NRA Unmasked

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Gun violence exacts an enormous toll on U.S. society-claiming tens of thousands of lives every year. Many more thousands are wounded and scarred physically and psychologically. From malls to schools from places of worship to concerts there is no safe space. Weapons of war are easily obtainable. We have the spectacle of armed militias in combat gear roaming state houses,...
Ralph Nader - Corporatism’s Threat to Democracy
08 Mar, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Milton Friedman is the godfather of modern conservative economics. A Nobel-prize winner, his ideas informed what is called the Chicago School. He laid the groundwork for Reagan-era neoliberalism with his landmark essay, “The Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase its Profits.” That’s pretty straightforward. Make as much money as you can. Society? It can take care of itself. In...
Prabhat Patnaik – From Neoliberalism to Neofascism
01 Mar, 2021 | 0:57:03 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Neo is a Greek prefix meaning new. Fascism of the classic variety is associated with Germany, Italy and Japan. It ends at the conclusion of World War II. But in the recent years there has been the development of a different variety which is neofascism. From Modi’s India to Erdogan’s Turkey neofascist autocratic regimes have taken hold. There is a...
Eddie Glaude, Jr. & Cornel West - James Baldwin’s Legacy
22 Feb, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

James Baldwin was one of the most significant figures of the 20th century. In this moment of racial reckoning, his life and work are being discovered and rediscovered. He was born in 1924 and died in 1987. He graduated from high school in New York but was otherwise self-taught. He said, “I love America more than any other country in...
Michael Eric Dyson - Chaos or Community?
15 Feb, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

In his 1967 book Where Do We Go From Here? Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr wrote these prophetic words: “A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today....
Jeff Cohen & Janine Jackson – Cutting Through Corporate Media BS
08 Feb, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

With few exceptions the corporate mainstream media operate within very narrow parameters. In one corner you have MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and in the other you have Fox’s Sean Hannity. And they do present contrasting views, but the boundaries of discussion are limited. Certain topics are taboo, such as U.S. imperialism or really existing capitalism, not the wonders of the free...
Angela Davis & Astra Taylor - Democracy: Theirs & Ours
01 Feb, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The term democracy is frequently invoked perhaps never more so than after the January 6th assault on the Capitol which was almost unanimously described as an attack on democracy. The Ancient Greeks coined the term, demos is people and kratia is power or rule. So ideally, rule of the people. The U.S. is the champion of democracy. But who benefits...
Howard Zinn - American Exceptionalism
25 Jan, 2021 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

In classic imperialist style the U.S. exempts itself from the standards that it applies to others. This is a fundamental tenet of American exceptionalism. International law applies to designated enemies, not for Washington and its vassals. Obey the master or face the consequences. Assassinations, sanctions, bombings, invasions and occupations are all tools of the empire to enforce its diktats. As...
Erica Chenoweth on Civil Resistance in the 21st Century
18 Jan, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The success and failure rates of civil resistance movements might seem like something studied at the U.S. Army War College. But social scientists and political activists always want to know why some tactics work, and some don’t. Boycotts, street protests, armed conflict, nonviolent and non-cooperation tactics, we’re seeing myriad forms of resistance as governments place greater restraints on freedom everywhere....
David Harvey - Smash the Mirror: Imagining a Different System
11 Jan, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The global health and economic crises are points of opportunity. Arundhati Roy, the great Indian intellectual and writer says, “Whatever it is, coronavirus has made the mighty kneel and brought the world to a halt like nothing else could. And in the midst of this terrible despair, it offers us a chance to rethink the doomsday machine we have built...
Kali Akuno & Richard Wolff - Capitalism, the Pandemic & the Two-Party Monopoly
04 Jan, 2021 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The pandemic has revealed a huge systemic failure in the ability of the U.S. to effectively attend to the well-being of millions of its citizens. World-class inequality has exacerbated the situation. You don’t need a degree from MIT to figure out the score. The rich get the gold and most of the rest of us get the shaft. Once the...
