HAPPY NEW YEAR FAMILY!

It has been a couple weeks since we have talked and just like we told you, the world didn’t end.  But there are still plenty of things to talk about.
1.  Did we get hustled on the fiscal cliff “deal?”
As we told you before, the whole fiscal cliff crisis was probably a fake crisis to begin with, a 2012 version of the y2k bug (if you are too young to remember, google it).  At any rate, it seems like our politicians came to consensus to avert whatever crisis was suppose to happen, real or imagined.  On our show tonight, we ask Matthew Stoller (Roosevelt Institute) and Nicole Woo (Center for Economic and Policy Research) how much working Americans got hustled in this “crisis” averting deal.  Don’t miss this segment.

2.  How do you keep a New Year’s resolution to be healthy?
If you made a New Years resolution, there is a chance that it had something to do with being healthy, gaining/losing weight, or getting in shape.  For a lot of us, those resolutions are the hardest to keep.  Tonight, we check in with nutritionist and author, Dr. Keith Kantor and personal trainer/martial arts/friend of the show Beverley Sher Bradley (Underground Physique) about how to keep a New Year’s resolution to get in and stay in shape.

Dear Family,

FAMILY! This show is gonna be live.   As part of our continued coverage of #Occupy, we will check in with folks at #OccupyMiami to see how things are going and then…

WHO IS THE 1%?
There are tumblr’s and tweets and anthems about the 99%.  But little attention has been paid in the past few weeks to taking hard looks at who makes up the 1% and what they do that is so damn objectionable.  On this show, we will take a little look at a few folks that fit that 1% tax bracket (but don’t pay that 1% tax).

“GETTIN BIG WHEN YOU’RE BROKE AND GETTING FIT WITH NO FUNDS…
 So while folks are out in the street trying to push for a change to the economic system, people are still broke and out of shape and their bodies can’t wait for change to come.  In our second segment of …”when you are broke,”  We will talk to friends of the show that can tell us how to stay in shape when the economy is down, you have no gym membership, and feel like you don’t have time.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS SHOW!

Plus check out some love we got in the New Times yesterday here and here.
