Ani and Lyn speak with John Nichols, correspondent for The Nation magazine and the associate editor of The Capital Times in Madison, Wisconsin. His latest book is "Uprising: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest, from Madison to Wall Street." He has covered seven presidential races and reported from two-dozen countries. He is the author or coauthor of eight books on media and politics.
They will be discussing why Wisconsin matters and how the spirit of Wisconsin has inspired activism on other states. What's a "Next Media" system and how can it allow citizens to create their own media platforms. Can we possibly reclaim the first amendment, how the progressive past and historical roots can motivate and encourage citizens to fight for their lives and livlihoods. This and more ... you never know where talk radio will go.

Drawing upon myths and wisdom traditions from both the East and West, Micheal Meade finds and mines the ancient "roots of wisdom'. Rather than abstract knowlege or general truths, this "embodied wisdom" is shown to be both immediate and eternal, both personal and deeply soulful. The point here is the awakening of the Uniquness within each individual and their connection to the divine: which is to say our connection to each other.
No more business as usual -- May Day 2012. Lyn and Ani be talking with people from the Portland Liberation Organizing Council about what they have planned for the day, and why.

Ani and Lyn look at the current fog of sexism blanketing the political scene.
Women who want contraceptive care conisidered to be part of basic health coverage called sluts and prostitutes.... Legislation is written to mollify religious organizations and business owners that will deny employees access to contraceptive care, if the owners deem such coverage as contrary to their religious views.
In this election year it seems as if the old pendulum is swinging far, far to the puritanical end of the spectrum.
Well, ani and Lyn aren't having it.
As radical feminists and thinking people, we declare that sexuality is a sacred right and part of our existance on this plane. Pleasure is divine. We will not be shamed or legislated into "family values". We vigilantly watch for the most unholy alliance of church and state, and we resist it.
We assert our rights to be as sexual as we want to be.
Author and activist Dark Lady was guest.
