Comic writer Jeremy Whitley returns to Graphic Policy Radio to discuss his new series Illegal which is currently a part of a Kickstarter project.
Illegal is a near future science fiction story about about an America in which the rich live in a lush paradise in and on top of skyscrapers, while the poor literally live in their shadows below. All of the citizens are tracked and monitored by a microchip under their skin from the time they are born and anyone undocumented is sent to deportation camps where few actually survive long enough to be deported.
Our heroine, Gianna DelRey is an undocumented immigrant who fled with her mother from an abusive household when she was young. She's survived by scrubbing floors and allowing her rich employers to treat her like dirt. When one turns on her and she finds herself on the run, Gianna will discover that when everyone is constantly tracked, being able to movie invisibly is something that many will pay a high price for. Will she keep running or will she decide to take a stand?

Ukraine, RUssia, China, the Middle East, Central America and more are presenting major issues that need addressed by President Obama.
As I started thinking about the issues that come with a froeign policy dealing with the above arenas, I began asking myself, "What is Obama's Foreign Policy?" I honestly don't know.
I went to the internet in search of the answer...I could not find an answer.
I contacted some "in the know" folks who I felt certain could explain the President's policy...nope.
Join me this morning at 7AM-8:AM EST "In the Pickle Barrel" and let's see if we can come up with the answer.

It's Monday night which means a new episode of Graphic Policy Radio! This is the show that mixes comics, geekdom, and politics.
This week we mix some comic discussion with that of conventions. On this episode:
We chat about Marvel and Peter David's All-New X-Factor.
This past weekend was Otakon. The convention covers manga, anime, and cosplay and attracts over 100,000 individuals to Baltimore, MD, for the weekend. We talk about the convention and some of the interesting observations from it.
We're talking those two things and more! You can listen in live, but also join in the conversation by calling us, or Tweeting us your thoughts, @graphicpolicy.
How does policy shape, limit, or empower the effectiveness of command at the unit level? Which policies are a net positive, and which ones are counter productive? Are there things we can do to better balance larger Navy goals with the requirement to give leaders the room they need to be effective leaders?
In times of austere budgets, can you both reduce end-strength while at the same time retain your best personnel? Are we a learning institution that can adjust policy that answers the bell from DC in shaping tomorrow's Fleet, yet does not break trust with Shipmates?
To discuss this and more we will have as our returning guest, Vice Admiral Bill Moran, USN. Chief of Naval Personnel. A P-3 pilot by trade, he held commanded at the squadron, wing and group levels. As Chief of Naval Personnel, he oversees the recruiting, personnel management, training, and development of Navy personnel. Since taking over a year ago he has focused on improving communication between Navy leadership and Sailors in the Fleet.
Jumah: Imam Wazir Ali 25th Annual Muslim Convention Chicago Il is this weeks obligated congregational services of Muslims.
[62:10] O you who believe! when the call is made for Prayer on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of Allah, and leave off all business. That is better for you, if you only knew.
[62:11] And when the Prayer is finished, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah’s grace, and remember Allah much, that you may prosper.
[62:12] But when they see some merchandise or some amusement, they break for it, and leave you standing. Say, ‘That which is with Allah is better than amusement and merchandise, and Allah is the Best Provider.’
Guest: Richard Baehr, political analyst and one of the founders of American Thinker.
