some good listens in honor of MLK:
the new jim crow author michelle alexander on fresh air. the last part of the interview is especially powerful.
the latest this american life about apple (and other) products being made in china. storyteller mike daisy goes undercover as an american businessman in order to see what's going on in the factories in china.
wish one could listen online on alternative radio to the whole interview with richard wolff about occupy wallstreet.
the new bill moyers show is also about occupy. i have not yet listened to the whole first installment, but guessing it's pretty good since bill came out of retirement to make it.
