Our addiction to militarism has to end. From millions-strong protests in Yemen to carte blanche for military force at the border, our violent empire has no dimmer switch – and no self restraint. Next up, the impossible always seems so till you invoke - Planck's constant? This and other news of “impossible change.” Finally, Margaret Flowers from Popular Resistance and Trade for People and Planet sits down with us to discuss the USMCA – what you might know as NAFTA.

The Pentagon broadens its horizons to domestic surveillance and “insurrection” - the all seeing eye is focused on the home front. Next, if we wanna survive humanity's demise that our choices designed, we have to start making different choices – at the dinner table. Finally, Dr. Sheila Vakharia joins us to talk harm reduction, addiction and drug policy.

Amazon gets cozy with the CIA, DHS and ICE – here's what the Silicon Valley beast has to gain and to offer in this growing Orwellian nightmare we call the US of A. Next up, the Nobel Peace Prize winner you didn't hear about and why – hint: Uncle Sam and white so-called feminism don't like talking about genocide. Finally, Dezeray Lyn joins the show again – this time to talk about the situation on the ground in both North Carolina and Florida after first hurricanes then the government battered and beat the residents.
