Old Mole Variety Hour
The Old Mole burrows down to the roots of the great issues of our time – the struggles of ordinary people for democratic and sustainable ways of life. The Mole goes where corporate media fear to tread, supporting grassroots challenges to top-down authority and giving voice to movements that shake the foundations of an unjust society. The Moles' perspective is democratic, broadly socialist, and feminist. (We count Karl Marx as a friend).

The first Old Mole Variety Hour of 2014 looks back at histories of struggle and forward to the end of alienation. Joe Clement hosts, and we hear segments on class struggle in labor and party politics, anti-capitalist activism in Mexico and globally, the revolutionary reform of guaranteed basic income, and the liabilities of hate crimes law.
