His new book about his ordeal, "Stealing Our Democracy" is due [...]

After a look at the latest in our dysfunctional country, we'll speak with former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman who served 5 years in federal prison as an American political prisoner targeted by the Republican party. His book, Stealing Democracy: How the Political Assassination of a Governor Threatens Our America, is scheduled for release in June.

I have no news, good or bad. Now we're in health insurance purgatory, awaiting the decision from the almighty United Healthcare as to whether or not they'll pay for the PET scan my doctor wants me to have. It looks like there will be a bunch of tests and procedures in my near future, so I will be taking some days off over the next few weeks. I'll try to get some good shows put together for you. Today, we ran the best of I put together for the 4th of July, featuring interviews with Bernie Sanders, Zephyr Teachout and Don Siegelman. [...]

History Keeps Repeating

We know that history tends to repeat itself. Today is the 51st anniversary of the March on Washington, which brought us Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech. It's the 46th anniversary of the infamous police riot that broke out during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, when police brutalized thousands of anti-war protesters on nationwide television as the demonstrators chanted, “The whole world is watching.” 57 years ago today, North Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond began an (unsuccessful) attempt to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957. He spoke for 24 hours and 18 minutes, setting a record [...]
