When fighting for human rights is a crime, we should all become outlaws.

Sixteen activists fighting the overt rise of fascism find themselves in the crosshairs of our “justice system.” We take a look at the detention of migrant children, the celebration of white supremacist imperialism and how folks are standing up for justice.

Next up, there is precious little ancient forest left in this world – and a patch in Northern California is quite literally on the chop block. We sit down with a forest protector for a look into the grotesque world of logging and destroying in the Mattole watershed.

A special episode that takes a look at how US empire operates in two of its latest and long standing efforts to terrorize and oppress foreign peoples, trample self-determination, and whitewash hearts and minds here at home.

Recently returned from trips to Venezuela and Iran, Kevin Zeese and Dr. Margaret Flowers sit down with me to discuss what US imperialism looks like from the front lines, and how the people the US targets are not only wise to these tactics, but they have no intention of submitting.

Breaking up from the abusive relationship with oil and gas is no easy task – but several communities in Louisiana have started divorce proceedings.

Meanwhile, lawmakers push to keep the abuser at home while the state quite literally disappears into the blue, oil-slicked abyss.

Finally, two community organizers join us to talk about their current fight against a dirty energy project so horrific not even the Nazis wanted anything to do with it!

Who gets water and what does it cost? Should it even cost anything?
A new report looks at what restricts access to water and the only real solution to address it.
PLUS, as floods continue to pound huge swaths of the US, here's another reason to fear the storm surge (hint: snakes!)

Pia Eberhardt wants you to know about the Energy Charter Treaty, a trade agreement that encompasses almost 25% of the world's countries and is on the hunt for more.
