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.

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.

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.

I have a dream...Celebrating Our Jubilee!
Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality.
So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? What are we fostering in the minds of our Black children? How will we strengthen our families and our communities? How will we show the power of LOVE in the world? How are we Leading Change?
Fifty years ago, Dr. King's "I Have a Dream..." Speech debuted in Detroit and transformed a nation. Today, we Celebrate our Jubilee and join in that movement of teaching us all to evolve in our beliefs, values and purpose for the elevation of our consciousness into the greatness that lies in the Human Spirit.
Today, we must look deeply at our patterns of behavior if we expect to see changes in our communities, our schools, our children and most importantly, in ourselves. Living is a major City that is creating a major divide in the standards of living, access to jobs, and so much more, it is imperative that we look to our history for guidance, and access our we are carrying that vision forward. We must look for innovative ways to offset what's being set up for our children.
And how do we do that? We look at our patterns of behavior in how we are operating, thinking, spending, learning, and sharing so that we can release old patterns that no longer work, and innovate new ways of achieving growth for our communities.
Tune in to today's show to learn how to changing old patterns will release new creative powers at our disposal that may have been lying dormant due to blockages of past experiences.
We are powerful, and together we rise!
