The 1%’s Private Prisons part I:
We have heard request after request from you, our listeners, to do a show on the private prison industry. Like a lot of 1% bad business practices, the private prison industry has found a special friend in Florida. GEO, one of the largest private prison companies in the world, is based in South Florida. CCA, the other big private prison outfit is trying to build the largest private immigration detention center in a ruralesque S. Florida city better known for its horse ranches and famous athletes. Are private prisons providing needed jobs and keeping communities safe or are they just making money from government bailouts and bad politics? We’ll find out.

An update on the Climate Conference in Durban, South Africa and some real talk on whether Lowe’s hates Muslim families, their money, or just controversy from a relatively tame new show on TLC, “All-American Muslim.”
