Excellent hour this morning, Per! Guest Richard Wolff helped clarify some of the bewildering E-CON dynamics that have barely been touched upon over the last year and a half of intense corporate-captured mass media coverage of the Presidential Primaries. I haven't heard nor do I expect the Usual Suspects to suddenly recognize that Election Season should be about deepening public discussion and understanding of the issues that affect our lives. Hopefully you can continue to foster such deepening of our understanding by continuing with a full hour, rather than the 1/2 hour weekly program.
Keep on doing!
