In this episode of Growl, we speak with Cole Harrison, Executive Director of Massachusetts Peace Action, based in Cambridge, Mass. At issue is last week’s Senate vote in favor of allowing floor debate on Senate Joint Resolution 54 to proceed, which would pave the way for ending U.S. support for the Saudi-led campaign against Yemen.

On today’s show, we hear from Nick Brana, Founder and National Director of The Movement for a People’s Party. You’ve likely heard him on Democracy Now! and the Jimmy Dore Show. I spoke with him this summer, before all hell broke loose around here, and I’m glad, finally, to be able to share our wide-ranging conversation. Brana will explain what’s at the heart of this movement that continues to gain momentum as the gap between voters’ concerns and elected representatives’ willingness to act continues to widen.…

This episode needs NO lengthy text support. Ajamu Baraka, Jill Stein’s running mate in the 2016 Presidential Elections, has one of the most insightful, penetrating minds you should be glad you don’t have to square off against. His decades-long, unbroken track record of commitment to a truly progressive vision is a testament both to his principled activism and his personal investment in the ideals of human value.…

Normally, I’d write up a fairly lengthy summary of what you’re going to hear in this episode. Not a lot of point in that, honestly. The topic is net net neutrality—what it is, how it came to be under attack for a third time, and what the consequences are if the battle to defend it fails.

Long before I had the chance to have a conversation with Richard Wolff about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, I heard him speak on an episode of Alternative Radio, entitled “Capitalism: Fantasies & Realities.” I was, I thought at the moment the show came on, not in the mood to hear another dry diatribe against an economic system that has so obviously blown a gasket. The facts were plain.…
