The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/12/13

Air date: 
Tue, 02/12/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe discuss the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, and the ramifications for US Christianity.

 So the Pope resigned on Monday -- the first time that's happened in about 600 years -- leaving the world's 1.2 million Catholics without a leader. We can only hope that his successor will support contraception and refuse to protect pedophiles. But we can, with some accuracy, predict that the new Pope will be male.

In the wake of the Holy Father's abdication, Abe and Joe examine the state of modern Christianity, and ask listeners whether patriarchal religion is a help or a hindrance in the 21st Century.

Short Description: 
Just back away from the coal, oil and gas.

After decades of inaction, we are now rapidly losing the window in which we can act to prevent catastrophic climate change. Yet with all the continued global fossil fuel development underway, it would appear that the involved governments and private companies couldn't care less.  How about you?

Greenpeace has recently compiled a report detailing 14 of the world's biggest coal, methane, and oil projects and how their development would seem to doom any chance of preventing a climate catastrophe.

Short Description: 
What can progressives expect -- or hope for -- from Obama's 2nd term?

 President Obama was inaugurated for the second time yesterday, cementing what will certainly be remembered as one of the more unlikely personal stories in American history. For progressives, though, the Obama presidency has been a mixed bag at best.

What can we expect from his second term? Without the pressure of re-election bearing upon him, will we see a bolder Obama? Will we see meaningful action on climate change? On gun violence? Will we at long last see the next New Deal we've been hoping for? Join Abe and Joe as they look forward at the next four years.

Abe and Joe's State of the Union

Well, that's not in the Constitution, but it should be. Abe and Joe size up the State of the Union.
