The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/29/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/29/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
This just in: up is down, in is out and black is white -- as long as you're a Republican.

With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the rampant denial, duplicity and hypocrisy that constitute the conservative psyche. As President Obama's Supreme Court nominee is vetted before the Senate, we learn from the GOP why Thurgood Marshall's civil rights crusade was so dangerous: he was a "judicial activist."

We also learn from our conservative brethren that the pressing American economic problem isn't unemployment, it's the deficit. So it's perfectly acceptable -- damn near required, even -- to sacrifice workers in the name of fiscal austerity.

Die German Stunde

program date: 
Fri, 06/25/2010

How much do you really know about Germans?

Why is going naked on a beach or in a public park in Germany okay and why are there restrictions here? Is the going-naked-movement gaining strength in Oregon and could Germany serve as a model? How do Germans deal with nudity and is there a difference between baring it in the eastern part of Germany versus the west? Germany has fully developed single payer healthcare, so why does a German who worked in Portland and went back to Germany yearn to return here? And then there's the World Cup.
