It has been a long time.  We took a break for a month and the news didn’t stop!  Tonight we come back on the air bringing more of the real issues that affect the lives of real people.  Seriously, you don’t want to miss this show.
1.  Undercover in Detention
You may have already heard how Viridiana Martinez (National Immigrant Youth Alliance-NIYA) and a half dozen other immigrant rights activists went undercover and got themselves detained by the Border Patrol and sent to the Broward Transitional Center (a privately run detention center in Pompano/Deerfield Beach, Florida) all in order to highlight the treatment of immigrants detained there and around the country.  Tonight we talk to Viridiana and DREAMActivist organizer Mohammad Abdollahi about their dramatic action, Obama’s famed announcement two months ago and the reality vs. the rhetoric for immigrants being detained.  
2. The Olympics in London
The games have begun.  With the Olympics, we always have our share of controversy along with a share of milestones.  Tonight we talk to Professor C.A. Tuggle about the TV coverage of the Olympic games, especially of women’s sports.  We also talk to Nadia Mohammad of Altmuslimah about the attention being brought to Muslim women Olympians. Finally, we will talk to Julian Cheyne, a Londoner who was forced to relocate because of the Olympic Games.
3.  The Walmart Economy: Part I
When people talk about “big box” retailers, the box doesn’t get much bigger than Walmart.  In the first show of a series, we will talk about what a Walmart economy looks like and what it means for its workers.
It is good to be back.  You don’t want to miss this show.
