It's Monday night and that means a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio. Tonight we have a special guest, Sarah Rasher who joins us to discuss all the latest comic related news.
Sarah is an Assistant Professor of Language and Literature at St. Augustine College in Chicago. As co-host Elana puts it, a Doctor of Shakespearology. She's currently working on a book about adaptations of Shakespeare in television, comic books, and video games. Her Twitter is @pas_dechat, although she mostly uses it to talk about sports.
On tonight's episode we chat:
San Diego Comic-Con has come to a close. We talk about the various announcements (or lack thereof) and what stood out amongst the bunch.
Diversity is a popular trend in comics with characters having their gender switched, or mantles being passed to a new generation of heroes that are ethnically diverse. We talk about the seismic change.
We also talk some of the hottest comics out there including Trees, Silver Surfer, Black Widow, and Moon Knight.
Join us as we discuss this and more on tonight's episode!
Events in Ukraine and the Middle East are moving at a fast pace. Decisions made by Washington in the next few weeks will determine the level of engagement the Obama administration is willing to go.

Michael sits down with New American Foundation's Open Technology Institute Policy Counsel, Robyn Greene. The two talk about surveillance and the USA Freedom Act, a bill to end bulk collection. The discussion includes explaining various Patriot Act powers such as 215 orders and 702 as well as the structure of the FISA court. They also discuss Executive Order 12333 from the Reagan Administration which also allows for the bulk collection.

Obama's Very Foreign Foreign Policy.
1. Have you noticed that our President likes to meet foreign dignitaries but he doesn't seem to be able to implement policy with any of them?
2. Is the Mexican Border an example foreign policy failure? Do we have a strategy in place to deal with the invasion of America from the southern border?
3. Why was Hillary Clinton such a failure as Secretary of State? Is John Kerry following in her footsteps?

ENVISION THIS: Economic and social justice activists sensitive to differences in class cultures
Betsy Leondar-Wright is an economic justice activist, sociologist and author, who writes on class and economic inequality. For nine years she was the Communications Director at United for a Fair Economy, and co-authored UFE's new book The Color of Wealth: The Story Behind the U.S. Racial Wealth Divide. She is currently the Project Director and Senior Trainer at Class Action, a non-profit that raises consciousness about class and money, where she edits the blog “Classism Exposed.” Betsy’s latest of twelve books, Missing Class: Strengthening Social Movement Groups by Seeing Class Cultures, was just published in 2014.
Betsy says, "Often the paid organizers in low-income communities come from professional middle-class backgrounds. I worked as a community organizer for many years, and the class dynamics can be tricky..." From an interview she conducted with Dorian Warren, she quotes,"Don't do things for people, but help them speak for themselves." Understanding the perspective, values, and goals of the people you are working with or trying to organize is so crucial that Betsy's current work focuses on helping activists to form cross-class coalitions in movements for social change
Join our discussion on this crucial aspect of creating a more just, equitable, and inclusive future.

.Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior perpetrated by an intimate partner against another. It is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background. Violence against women is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior, and thus is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence results in physical injury, psychological trauma, and sometimes death. The consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and truly last a lifetime.
When it comes to life insurance, you have two basic choices: Some form of cash value life insurance (including universal life) and term life insurance.
Cash value, or whole life, as a “bundled” policy, requires you to buy both your death benefit and a cash value feature.
For the cash savings, the money is controlled by the insurance company and reverts to the life insurance company, not the estate of policy holder. It's in the contract. A little "s" is inserted between the CV in the contract = cash surrender value.
It's your money...and while you may borrow it--at up to 8% interest--why not claim it yourself. But never cancel any policy until you have a new one in place.
