"Concrete, Steel, and Paint," a film documents what happens when men in a Pennsylvania state priso

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with Tony Heriza, Co-Director/Producer of "Concrete, Steel, and Paint," and Jane Golden, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. They discuss the film "Concrete, Steel, and Paint," which documents what happens when men in a Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing and their views on punishment, remorse, and forgiveness collide. Finding consensus is not easy - but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to surprising moments of human contact and common purpose.

Laurie Mercier is our host today for this program about labor and politics. We hear about the continuing struggle of progressives in Wisconsin to resist attacks on labor by Republicans and to overcome the temerity of Democrats.  We hear from Sandy Pope running against James P. Hoffa Jr. for Teamsters President and how she would democratize the union.   We learn just how biased mainstream TV is against workers, and some hopeful  analysis suggesting the end of Tea Party power and more opportunities for the Left.
