The news corporate media won't touch, stories from the front lines of our movements to fight and build and just a dash of spoken word, visual art and snark. Blend and enjoy.

This week:

As the DNC rages on, we're talking state surveillance – digging deep into the past and present with surveillance expert, Chip Gibbons from Defending Dissent.

And quickly before we wrap up, a brief overview of your rights – so all you battling on the front lines know what to do and what to say when the man stands in your way.

From tweets to marching in the streets, this is Act Out!

This week:

We continue with part 2 of our interview with former Philadelphia police captain Ray Lewis and dig into some of the Philly PD's sordid past so as to prepare activists for what they might encounter as we take to the streets for justice and equality.

But first, taste --- the empire's palette...

This week:

A special extended episode featuring voices from what one might think are opposite sides of the front lines: a young black woman and a retired police captain.

In fact, these two may even have run into each other in the city of brotherly love long before they had the fight for justice in common. First we'll hear from creative activist, community builder and social justice advocate YahNe Ndgo about police brutality, systemic racism and movements for change – then we'll give you a preview of next week's special with retired police Captain Ray Lewis – a man who has marched across the police brutality spectrum to stand against injustice from wall street to ferguson.

And finally, a quick shout out to climate justice fighters as they march against pipelines and for people and planet. ---

This week:

Let's take a walk down the aisle – the political aisle that is, and see where we might find some common ground – perhaps there's a unifying factor, something that both sides hold in the highest esteem, that they can't live without, that drives their decisions and shapes their every step.

Next up, the boat for peace in a place of war – Women's Boat to Gaza calls for peace and hi-lights the role of women in the Palestinian struggle for freedom.

And finally, it's berry season so why not celebrate by avoiding these capitalist cronies peddling sweet fruit and bitter discontent.

But first, politics and poetry...

This week:

A special look at the video game – yes video game, that takes you inside what it's really like – to live in war.

Next up, if it looks like an article, reads like an article, well then it's – NOT necessarily a real article. We're dissecting the despicable trend of native advertising where ads dress like news so YOU consume more and know less.

But first, some shaded shame...
