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.

In this episode of "Bringing Voices To Power" I talk with Morgan Fox Communications Manager of the Washington, D.C. based Marijuana Policy Project. Marijuana Prohibition has failed. It's time for a new approach, and MPP is leading the way. Since their founding in 1995, they've been making real progress in reforming U.S. Marijuana Laws by: ...lobbying for legislation and running ballot intiative campaigns to allow seriously ill patients to use medical marijuana with their doctor's recommendations....lobbying for legislation and sponsoring ballot intiatives to replace marijuana prohition with a sensible system of regulation....garnering widespread media coverage of the need to change marijuana policies....lobbying Congress to reduce the White House Drug Czar's budget for his deceptive ad campaigns...building coalitions of supportive individuals and organizations to advocate on behalf of marijuana policy reform...and much more.

This Monday night Graphic Policy returns with a brand new episode mixing comics and politics. Listen in as we talk live about some of the latest comic news.
On this episode, we're discussing:
All-New X-Men made waves this past week when founding X-Man Bobby Drake aka Iceman was revealed to be gay. The writing though was controversial concerning statements around bisexuality. We talk about what happened, what we like vs what is still really troubling.
DC Comics revealed that Frank Miller will be penning Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Miller will be joined by Brian Azzarello on writing duties. We discuss the unfortunate name for the new series.
DC Comics' Convergence is wrapping up its first month this week. The two month event consists of a main series and a bunch of tie-in series. We discuss what we think so far. and what we hope to see in the second month.
We'll discuss all of that and more! We want to hear what you think too! Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy or call in to let us know what you think.
In the first hour of the show, Linda Haywood will discuss the book African Americans in US Foreign Policy.
The second half of the show is devoted to a open dialogue about the current situation in Baltimore with my guest Dr, Stephany Rose.
In the wake of Baltimore and Ferguson, we're going to be discussing the public policy that created the ghettos in America. What did the government do to contibute these situations? At what level of the government did they occur? Was there any legislative remedy to these issues, and were they adhered to? What affect did these issues have on African Americans then? What effect do they have on African Americans now? If there is a lasting legacy we are seeing today, what can we do to address it?
We'll try to cover as much as we can in our next broadcast. Please join us!
