Truthdig Radio airs Wednesdays at 2 p.m. Pacific time on 90.7 KPFK Los Angeles.


This week on Truthdig Radio in association with KPFK: Newt Gingrich’s rise and Rod Blagojevich’s fall; why nonlethal weapons are being abused; Nomi Prins’ new novel; and millennial mishigas.

Listen to the show:


Bill Boyarsky on the increasingly goofy world world of politics.

Alternet’s Rania Khalek tells Joshua Scheer that the ever more painful weapons of our militarized police were never supposed to be used against nonviolent protesters.

Morley Winograd and Michael D. Hais tell Kasia Anderson that Millennials are sympathetic to the Occupy movement, but they also demand practical solutions.

Nomi Prins went from a job at Goldman Sachs to a job exposing Wall Street abuses. She has a new novel called “Black Tuesday” based on the stock market crash of 1929.
