The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/31/10

Air date: 
Tue, 08/31/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe examine the billionaire backers of the Tea Party movement.

The Teabaggers -- noisy, bigoted and ignorant, but basically harmless, right? And if we're lucky, they'll hijack the Republican Party and nominate a bunch of un-electable loons. The best thing the Teabaggers can do is to keep making asses of themselves in public.

But what if they have friends in high places? A bombshell article by Jane Mayer in the New Yorker paints a vivid portrait of two such highly-placed friends. David and Charles Koch, the patriarch sublings of Koch Industries, are philanthropists of note -- and also deep-pocketed backers of the Tea Party and other conservative causes. Abe and Joe delve into the New Yorker piece and discuss the role of big money in today's discourse.

Short Description: 
The Dentata arrives on KBOO!

Sonnette Ehlers, creator of the RapeAxe anti-rape condom, will speak LIVE ON AIR with Theresa Mitchell on today's Press**Watch.  Mme. Ehlers created the condom, which is worn by women, to counteract rape and to identify rapists after the fact.  On her website, Sonnette writes "It's time to fight back!"

It is absurd that women and children In this day and age still fall prey to opportunistic sexual predators. When will they be empowered? When will they be heard? Never, it seems! There always appears to be a more important issue to be addressed in legislature.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/17/10

Air date: 
Tue, 08/17/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Joe returns from vacation to join Abe in taking a snapshot of the body politic.

It's summer. It's hot, it's sticky, and an election looms in November. What can we expect? Nearly halfway through President Obama's first term, what is the state of the American zeitgeist? Has the president delivered on his promise of hope and change? Are the Teabaggers worth taking seriously (no, really ...)? Have we shrugged off the toxic malaise of the Bush Years? What can we expect on Election Day?

And perhaps most importantly, do Abe and Joe have anything worth saying?
