Flashback Friday

What a week this has been! I can't say I'm sorry to see it end. This morning on the show, we flashed back to last week and to February 2000. Last week was easy. I flew to Detroit for Netroots Nations following a few days in Los Angeles for the American Federation of Teachers convention. Although I did live shows from Netroots on Thursday and Friday, I recorded a bunch of interviews on Saturday, some of which we heard earlier in the week. Today, we began with Mike Rogers of Raw Story and Netroots Connect, and a conversation about almost [...]

How I Spent My Summer Vacation (Part 2)

  I'm home after 10 days on the road to cover the American Federation of Teachers convention in Los Angeles and Netroots Nation '14 in Detroit. It was actually anything but a vacation, but I do thrive on the action, and there was plenty of that. To recap the trip, all you need do is listen to the shows from the past week or so. (Find them here, here, here, here and my interview with the amazing Rev. Dr. William Barber is posted as a standalone interview here) Now that I'm back home, I have the luxury of sitting back [...]

Good Morning from the West Coast

I awoke this morning in beautiful downtown Los Angeles. I'm here to cover the American Federation of Teachers convention before heading to Detroit for Netroots Nation. I'll find out all the details for the AFT convention later this morning, and will update this post with a working schedule. That said, there will be no live show this morning. However, since it's Friday, I thought we'd do a special double-header Flashback Friday edition. Each Friday, I dig into my radio archives and pull out an interview from my music radio days. Today, we go back to 1999 and 2000 to speak [...]
