This week:

The DOJ announced last week that they're breaking up with private prisons. What does that mean in practice and is it enough to make a difference?

Next up, the Olympics might be over for the crowds and the athletes, but it turns out the Olympics are a long-lasting force for many, one that is neither inspirational nor cheerful. Let's take a closer look at the latest host city – and the steep prices paid by not only a crippled economy but a impoverished people.

And finally, people talk a lot about just transitions but do we have any real solutions? Bill Moyer from Backbone Campaign talks about the Solutionary Rail and how we can use old infrastructure to create new opportunities for both people and planet.

 

If you enjoy the show, please become a patron! A coffee a month, a bushel of organic kale a month - help us keep acting out!
