    Flint Water Crisis: State of Emergency Declared

    in Radio

    In Flint, Michigan, a scandal over lead-tainted water keeps getting darker.

    On Tuesday, Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency due to lead in the water supply. The same day, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it is investigating what went wrong in the city. Several top officials have resigned, and Snyder apologized. But that’s only so comforting for residents. They’re drinking donated water supplies—though those donations are reportedly running dry—or using filters. Public schools have been ordered to shut off taps. Residents, and particularly children, are being poisoned by lead, which can cause irreversible brain damage and affect physical health. It could cost $1.5 billion to fix the problem, a staggering sum for any city, much less one already struggling as badly as Flint is.

    My guest will be Councilman Wantwaz Davis, the call in number is (347) 850-8390.

    in Entertainment

    We need a #BlackSignal to know what to follow. 

    Due to our conversations and information sharing being very public, black people need two things to set up what we know we'll be looking into. 

    We need a back channel (#BlackChannel) where we have a private space to discuss framing and story to push forward. 

    This can be in private message groups or secret groups set up in social networks. 

    We also need a public signal booster to get stories set off. 

    I think the public signal should be #BlackSignal so we know what to signal boost. 

    We should only use #BlackSignal to get things started, because it will be covered with trolls the first day. 


    If you are on facebook, link their account to your networks and everybody block them and keep moving. 
    If it is on Twitter, USE THE BLOCKBOT. 

    We have the ability to force trend a topic. 
    When bringing these topics to larger voices, we need to choose Soft Targets. 

    Shoot for getting Sam Seder to get involved in the discussion. 
    Or Jay Tomilson. 
    When we get a story big enough that it can hit the mainstream, aim for Chris Hayes, Lawrence O'Donell,Rachel Maddow. 

    We'll dig more into this in the program. 

    What we do, we want to do full time, so you can sign up to invest in us monthly at this link right here.

    The Debate That Cried Out for Civility and Reason: Lunch with Louden 11/05/15.

    in Politics

    The most recent primary candidate debate was a political scream for help. “Are you a comic book version of a president?” I was shocked and remain concerned about the lack of civility and reason.

    Those of us who value civility and reason now have a perfect compass point for our stand: that we, the people, deserve adult, fact based, and respectable discussion on meaningful issues before this republic’s democracy. 

    On November 6th, the day after this broadcast, there will be a candidate forum moderated by Rachel Maddow, and on November 14th the next primary candidate debate will be moderated by John Dickerson. Charlie Rose asked Mr. Dickerson if the last debate was "a teachable moment"? I think it was. And you?

    You can share your observations about this most recent debate and thoughts about your hopes for future debates by calling in, participating in chat during the broadcast OR you can join the ongoing conversaton between now and air time on Lunch with Louden
