This week - a special episode:

Bushra al-Fusail is a Yemeni-American who lived under the ongoing airstrikes in Yemen for months before coming, ironically, to the country that makes the destruction of hers possible.

Far from tucking herself away, she has been working tirelessly both on the streets and in the halls of Congress to raise awareness of the ongoing conflict in Yemen and perhaps most importantly, of the US role in the death and destruction in her home country.

In this special episode, she outlines the reality of war, the backstory of Saudi’s involvement in Yemen, the US role in the war and how we, the people of the US can #RememberYemen and push to end this horrific war

This week:

We're introducing a new segment for all those times you think to yourself, wow that's fucked up. And for the inaugural segment: white supremacists.

Next up, Gabriella Coleman talks to us about Anonymous, hacktivism and the surveillance state and finally,

the importance of being informed when it comes – to Jews.

But first, I am, I have.

This week:

The fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline rages on, despite a joint statement asking big oil to play nice. So let's take a look at the battle thus far and dissect the decisions made by both government and big oil – we're following the money trail.

And finally, a young forest in the UK is revitalizing both people and planet after the fossil fuel industry left both for dead.

This week marks the 15 year anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001. Let's take a look at what these 15 years have brought us, the results of the war on terror and the terrorists made – on both sides of the story.

Then, this Friday is also an anniversary – the 45th anniversary of the Attica prisoner uprising. And this year, prisoners across the US are commemorating it with their own actions – for human rights and justice.

Next up, join in the fight against the Dakota Pipeline wherever there's a bank and finally,

words of wisdom, power and inspiration from an activist who fought fascism not because she thought she'd win, but because they were fascists.

This week:

we've got a bit of a spoiler alert for you when it comes to third party spoilers plus

how the quest for knowledge and the weaving of words are building community, self respect and power in one of the US's most impoverished and downtrodden cities, Detroit.

But first, it takes a fool to remain sane.
