    THIS IS HELL KANSAS

    in Politics

    Quit early.


    And what's so great about this TGIF celebration?  You can listen to their latest show as it streams live the very next morning beginning at 9am.!


    Start your Friday exit from wage-slavery with a good dose of chicanery and chutzpah.  I'll provide the audio intoxicants and smart-ass podcast talk from the best - Chuck Mertz and crew at Chicago's WNUR 89.3FM at  THIS IS HELL radio.


    From what they're all "about" page:


    " ... Each broadcast features long-form interviews with writers, thinkers and workers from around the world and across the spectrum of experience. Our interviews are built on research and critical analysis, not preconceived opinions or political agendas. This is Hell! is not a soap box, or a pulpit, or an audition for a corporate job somewhere. It’s a bar stool, three beers into a conversation with a fascinating stranger. It’s the news-stand of your dreams that would go broke in the real world. ..."

    Descripton:


    "I think that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign will greatly intensify. It will be incredibly even more difficult for defenders of Israel's apartheid regime to defend Israel in this new era. (Prime Minister) Netanyahu's election makes our job advocating for these campaigns much more easy."


    – Josh Ruebner, policy director with the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, on the outcome of the March 17 Israeli election.
