Where do John McCain and Barack Obama stand on issues affecting jobs, health care, and income inequality? Economist Arthur MacEwan talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about what's wrong with the economy, what needs to be done, and how likely the main presidential contenders are to do the right things. MacEwan contributes to Dollars & Sense as "Dr. Dollar" and is the author of NEOLIBERALISM OR DEMOCRACY?
Killer of Sheep, directed by Charles Burnett, is a film about life in Watts in the early 1970s, one of the "100 Essential Films" of all time according to the National Society of Film Critics. It's now out on DVD. Frann Michel and Denise Morris tell us about it.
Book Mole Larry Bowlden reviews Jon Krakauer's book Under the Banner of Heaven and reflects on his own experience growing up in a Mormon family--and on how religious fundamentalism of any variety closes down our minds.
Clayton Morgareidge talks with members of Iretsu, a young Portland "avant-pop" band getting national attention. We hear some of their music and talk with Ryan Cross, Glen Schiedt, and Joel Holly about how their music points in the direction of better ways to treat each other. You can hear more of their music, and even download some of it, at Hidden Shoal where Iretsu is under contract. You can also find them on MySpace, and at their own website.
Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this show features the music of local avant-pop band Iretsu and an interview with its members (Ryan Cross, Glen Schiedt and Joel Holly).
