Episode # 709: Podcast for September 15, 2012 Shows


This is Hell! aired a live four hour show Saturday, September 15, at 9 AM (US central) on WNUR-FM, Chicago, streaming live and podcast here.

Your bitter blind broke gap-toothed radio show host Chuck Mertz interviewed economist Dean Baker and investigative journalist Greg Palast.

Dean is co-chair at The Center for Economic Policy and Research with past This is Hell! guest mark Weisbrot. Dean’s recent writing includes last week’s, “Romney’s Success at Bain Capital: The Business as Scam Model.”

Greg is releasing his new book, “Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps,” next Tuesday! His most recent writing includes yesterday’s, “The Worst Teacher in Chicago.”

We were joined by irregular correspondents LaddieO.com of URL Labs talks web, tech and/or science stuff, and Jeff Dorchen delivers a Moment of Truth.

We also had a surprise interview with Alternet’s Sarah Jaffe.

Our producers were Johnny Happ of Chicago’s Rootstock Wine and Beer Bar, 954 North California,  and Spencer ‘Thunderball’ Thayer.
