Our studio is observing Rosh Hashanah today. So no show. Tune in next week. In the mean time check out a blog post by Co-host Subhash Kateel on Organizing Upgrade
It is in response to a piece a friend Sally Kohn wrote about the Occupy Wall Street Protests.
NONE OF US ARE WINNING, YET
(cross posted from Organizing Upgrade)
I just finished reading Sally Kohn’s piece in the American Prospect titled “Follow No Leader” that outlines her criticism of the Occupy Wall Street (for a good explanation of the action check out this Voices from the Frontline Occupy Wall Street protests). Now, I know Sally to be thoughtful and articulate. I am especially proud of her courage being in the Fox News studios going head to head with the Michelle Malkin’s of the world. That respect made her article even more curious to me. In the article she basically reduces the Occupy Wall Street protests to “making noise for its own sake,” and cites a New York Times writer, Ginia Bellafante, who accuses Occupy Wall Street of “pantomiming (maybe I am dumb, but I had to look that word up to make sure I knew what it meant) progressivism rather than practicing it.” Sally even seems to cosign the Times writers’ characterization of the protestors as hippies and anarchists.

While we were on the show we got word that Troy Davis' execution was delayed. Every minute he is alive is a victory for the people fighting for his campaign. But the main point of the show was to talk about jobs. And talk about it we did. Listen to the show by downloading it here or pressing play below.
Tonight, as we are anticipating and praying that justice will come for Troy Davis (check our last show if you haven't heard), we are will talk about jobs . Having a bad one, not having one, trying to get one, giving up on looking for one, and everything in between. We will talk to folks that are looking for work, folks that work with people out of work, and people doing something about us not having work. We will also talk with economist Dean Baker, about Obama's Jobs Plan, and whether or not it will actually create jobs. You really don't wanna miss this show. And if you have something to say, we really want your insight. Call in at 305-541-2350 and let us know what's on your mind. Can we get ourselves on our feet? Is there an end in sight? What can we do besides just being frustrated?
Tune In! Call In! Let's Talk About It!

FIRST: Is Georgia About To Execute An Innocent Man?
The state of Georgia is about to execute Troy Davis next week, twenty years after he was convicted of killing a cop. The problem is, most of his eyewitnesses have recanted and attorneys say that there is new evidence that proves his innocence. Why is Georgia in such a rush to execute a man who may be innocent? What does Troy Davis got to do with us? Tune in to this important segment that hits at the hear of what is right and wrong with our justice system.
If you say the word "sperm," most people giggle. But the sperm donor industry is no laughing matter. More people than ever are relying on sperm banks to help them conceive. It has become a million dollar industry with millions of issues few folks wanna talk about. Think about it, there are people that have 150 kids that they don't know about! There are children walking around with genetic disorders that don't understand why. And if you believe a New York Times article, there are siblings that may be hooking up, not realizing they are siblings! Not all is doom and gloom, but on our show, we will chop it up about a topic few want to, but most should, think about more.
TUNE IN! CALL IN! LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!
The sponsors for our show today include:
A special shot out to Daniella Levine for her continued support for our show.

We know, we know, everyone has a 9/11 show this week. It may feel cliche, but 9/11 wasn't just a pivotal moment for opportunist politicians and the mainstream media. It meant a lot of different things to a lot of different people. On our show tonight, we wanna capture what it means now 10 years later and what it will mean 10 years into the future. And we would really dig it if you called in to share with us how to move forward from the "never forgets" and the "always remembers" to the "let's build something new."
Remember to call in at 305-541-2350.
Tune in! Call In! and Let's Talk About It!
