Graphic Policy is back with a brand new episode with special guest, and award winning journalist Spencer Ackerman.
Comics have often featured torture as a method for the heroes to extract information or get them to their goal. We most recently saw this in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, where torture is a key point in advancing the hero's plot. We'll discuss torture in comics, and its place in the modern stories and the world.
Spencer Ackerman is the U.S. national security editor of the Guardian, where he was part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism for the NSA surveillance revelations provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. A former senior writer for Wired, Ackerman won the 2012 National Magazine Award for Digital Reporting for his series about Islamophobia in FBI counterterrorism training. Having reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and numerous ships, bases and a submarine, Ackerman in 2015 exposed a secretive incommunicado police detention center in Chicago called Homan Square. A Brooklyn NY native, his mother taught him to read with Bill Mantlo's Incredible Hulk run.

Our guest for this segment is Scott Morgan who specializes in U.S. policy towards Africa focusing on security and business development south of the Sahara.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, and we're going to the movies again. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron has already proven itself to be one of the biggest films of the year. The film has already earned $1.2 billion globally. But popularity doesn't necessarily mean the film has been universally praised. The movie has come under fire for its portrayal of women, the absence of women in tie-in products, and for other issues with the story itself. Joining us for the conversation is Sarah Jaffe.
Sarah Jaffe is a reporting fellow at the Nation Institute and a giant nerd who once upon a time wrote about comics more than she wrote about politics, believe it or not, and she has lots of feelings about superhero movies AND their politics. Follow her on Twitter https://twitter.com/sarahljaffe
So listen in, and join us in the conversation. Call in with your thoughts, or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the most important issues facing the working class. We'll discuss the U.S. flights over China. Why is the U.S. deliberately trying to provoke China; some have suggested insane brinkmanship on the part of the U.S. Is this part of a larger strategy?
It's been documented that one African American is killed by the police every 28 hours. Unfortunately, virtually no police officers are held accountable. The latest example of this is the acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer who shot and killed an African American couple. Do black lives matter in the capitalist cystem?
Michael Parenti of the Greanville Post wrote an article in defense of existing socialism and socialism of the past. We'll discuss the importance of the article and the implications for the future. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.greanvillepost.com%2F2015%2F05%2F23%2Fleft-anticommunism-the-unkindest-cut%2F&h=0AQFIdGMH
Also, it was revealed last week through a FOIA lawsuit that the U.S., Saudi Arabi and other allies supported the creation of the Islamic State. Was this a deliberate act to create further military action in Syria and elsewhere?
