Positively Revolting on 05/11/12
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.
