Truthdig Radio airs Thursdays at 4 p.m. Pacific time on 90.7 KPFK in Los Angeles. Check your town’s listings or ask your public radio station to carry Truthdig Radio.

This week on Truthdig Radio in association with KPFK: There’s a reason one particular handgun keeps showing up at mass shootings: It works. Also: Paul Ryan and life after journalism.

The show features three interviews this week, plus a special comment from Thomas Jefferson on Julian Assange (sort of).

Part one: Glock. Those five little letters have added up to a whole lot of mayhem since that brand of semiautomatic pistol became the weapon of choice for mass murderers. Paul M. Barrett literally wrote the book on the subject.

Part two: The people who bring you the news are getting frozen out, says Josh Stearns from Free Press. With the media landscape fracturing, the byzantine credentialing process has put the people who get reported on in charge of deciding who is and isn’t a pro.

Part three: Bill Boyarsky explains why reporters have a crush on Paul Ryan. Is it enough to push Mitt Romney’s campaign over the top?
