  Broadcast in Politics

Call in to speak with the host

The US elections saw a surge in the number of independents running for office in 2012...or did it?  Tracking candidates - Democratic, Republican or independent - is very difficult, doubly so because of the barriers to independents raised by the parties. Jackie Salit, President of independentvoting.com and author of Independents Rising, gives us a status report on  candidate suppression and overcoming it.

Can a waste-strewn vacant lot in Hollyoke MA fight unhealthy corporate food.  Eric Toensmeier thinks so and he owns the lot...Paradise Lot, the name of his book on an unusual urban garden tht is part of a national movement of edible gardens and healthy eating.

A new concept in the opinion-driven world of talk radio, Fairness Radio is a daily one-hour on-line and on-air radio show featuring liberal Patrick O'Heffernan interviewing national guests from across the political spectrum.  Patrick talks with everyone from conservative Senator Jim DeMint to former Democratic Party Chairman Governor Howard Dean to explore news, politics and culture from all sides in a civil conversation that focuses on idea, not gotcha’s.  With an international team experts from all sides of the political spectrum Fairness Radio covers the events of the world like no one else.
