Susan Lindauer worked for years through back channel resources around the world as a CIA asset specializing in counter-terrorism, set up the diplomatic architecture that - had it been adopted - would have avoided the Iraq War. For her extraordinary dedication and commitment to American security, Lindauer was arrested, incarcerated at Carswel, Texas's Communication Management Unit where they attempted to drug her and prevent her from standing trial. Authorities at Carswell figured it would take a little longer than it usually did to "break" her because...Well...(and this is a little embarrassing for our beloved government)...because as a CIA asset she was CIA-trained. Susan Lindauer has it all documented, again thanks to our own Patriot-acting agents who thoughtfully taped every conversation: Your tax dollars at work! Read the book; It's a King Hell nightmare on wheels. No one could make this shit up.

Host Sue Supriano interviews Max Rameau about Take Back the Land, which he founded in 2006. The group initiated a bold campaign that sparked a national movement: they began taking over foreclosed and government-owned homes, and moving homeless families into them. They have successfully moved in over 20 families to date, and many have used the opportunity to save up money and get back on their feet.
Max is a Haitian-born Pan-African theorist and organizer. He moved to Miami, Florida in 1991 and began organizing around immigrant rights, especially for Haitian immigrants, criminal justice issues and police brutality.
In 2008, Max authored the book Take Back the Land, recounting the experiences and political theory behind the Umoja Village.
Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with journalist and author Thomas Frank, who recently joined Harper's Magazine as a monthly columnist. His first column for Harper's is in the December 2010 issue. It's called "Bright Frenetic Mills." Frank writes about how media has become one big content generation mill. In the new January issue, (pictured at left), Frank's column is called "The Fatal Center." He asks whether the U.S. political spectrum has a center or whether it is completely polarized.
Frank is the founder and editor of The Baffler and the author of several books. Other writings include essays for Harper's Magazine, Le Monde diplomatique, Bookforum, and the Financial Times. His book What's the Matter with Kansas?, published in 2004, earned him nationwide and international recognition.
Host Kathleen Stephenson interviews Fen Montaigne, author of "Fraser's Penguins: A Journey to the Future in Antarctica."

Fraser has worked in Antarctica since 1975. He has documented how the part of Antarctica that is home to Adelie penguins and other wildlife has warmed faster than almost any place on earth. No creature has been more profoundly affected by the changes than the Adelie, who depends on sea ice to survive.
