This week – from med students to female priests, fasters to the monopoly man, we've got on helluva line up. First up, let's talk Medicare – it shouldn't be so ageist. Next up, how could we not mention the pope? So, we're mentioning the Pope, and since I'm such a contrarian, let's talk about the good AND the bad. Next, we've got a fracking low life scum award, money in politics and get ready to get cozy and design some graphics! But first, this is plastic. I bleed.

This week, Chris Hedges offers up some historical rebellion so we understand where we came from and where we're headed. Next up, Climate Camps and Klima Kamps show us how we could be living while teaching us how to dismantle the corporat-ocracy and finally Kevin Gosztola wants media and movements to work together, ensuring that every politician, corporate tool, law and legislation is shadowproof. But first, let's go face to face with one of those corporate tools.

This week, Margaret Flowers thinks it's about fucking time we got some more activists in the halls of the mighty – from occupying the streets to occupying Congress. Next up, here's how you can make your community an anti-corporate land of the free PLUS rice paper against the TPP and finally, let's google how NOT to be over-consuming, plastic ass hats. But first, YOU ARE an activist.

This week, grab your bicycle and give cars a well deserved middle finger in a world-wide initiative to cut emissions, get outside, move your ass and interact with your city and people. Next, let's talk Syria and why their story could so easily be ours – I'll give you a hint: climate change. Finally, peace in the middle east might not be a reality but the Iran deal could be – thanks to the tireless work of activists like Alli McCracken, director of Code Pink. And speaking of war and peace, we'll kick off this week by meeting these unknown, unwilling soldiers.

This week, we've got a veritable shit ton happening on the Front Lines so ready your calendars for this activist onslaught. From climate change to anti-war to fracking to pipelines of the school to prison kind, the summer lull is definitely over. Next, let's talk digital activism – small steps become leaps and it may start with one of these petitions. And finally, Timothy Almeida Jr., spoken word poet, artist, musician and custodian shares his rhymes and the life and times of the man behind the book, blog and podcast, the custodian chronicles. But first, let's make friends --- across enemy lines.

It’s our 6 month anniversary! And we’re celebrating with whistleblowers - because everyone loves a whistleblower! From Chelsea Manning to John Kiriakou, we’re breaking down the lunacy of charging whistleblowers as spies and giving you the tools to help support those who speak out against injustices in our government. Next up, let’s take a trip to England where the world’s most disappointing theme park has just opened, and believe me, you’ll wanna see it! Then Silent Bill gives us a rundown of the Secret Society of Super Villain Artists - doing good and having fun while doing it. And finally, here’s how you can join the fight to stop fighting and let diplomacy prevail over war. #NoWarWithIran. But first, we gotta go to the emergency room.

Ferguson one year later – what happened, what did we learn and what's next? Next up, tar sands – from Secretary Kerry's front door to the pits of despair themselves, we're gonna show you what activists are doing about this overused and crude fossil fuel PLUS what YOU can do to tell big oil to go fuck themselves with a rusty oil pipe. Street artist Morley combats consumerism in its vapid capital and finally, get cozy with Wikileaks. But first, how flat is your past?

This week, here’s 4 things about the Planned Parenthood debacle to put them and their work into perspective. Next up, let's talk Britney Spears and cluster bombs, yep, seriously. It's art vs. the military industrial complex with Bob Paris and The Cluster Project. Then we offer up a Presidential low life scum award thanks to a pretty much useless climate change plan and finally, some good news you gotta know about! But first, I pledge allegiance.

Peter Joseph - extended interview

Matt Sedillo - extended interview

 

Yep, we have one helluva all star creative activist lineup for you this week! Starting off, we’ve got Peter Joseph, creator of the Zeitgeist Trilogy talking about his new project, the movement and his artistic and technological expression. Next up, Revolutionary Poet Matt Sedillo performs his piece “Here is a Nation” then talks to us about poetry, activism and some interesting hecklers. Lili Haydn doesn’t play notes, she plays emotions. We catch a performance of hers at the Healthcare for All event in downtown LA and talk to her about finding hope in dark issues and musical activism.
