The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show
Both Abe Proctor and Joe Uris are on vacation this week.
Today, Peter Shapiro and Kevin Card tell us some horror stories about the current Health Care Crisis, and listeners are encouraged to call in and share theirs. It seems as tho everyone has been touched by the health care crisis lately. If you haven't been personally burned by our profit-driven, insurance based health care system, you probably have a friend or loved one who has been.
What if a week went by in America and nothing interesting happened? Not this week.
Hosted by: Abe Proctor. (Joe Uris is on Summer Holiday)
Guest Host: Goudarz Eghtedari
Why were elections in Iran rigged?
What do the Iranian Demonstrators want?
Is the Green Wave in Iran another CIA staged colour revolution?
For some answers tune into KBOO's special talk show with Goudarz Eghtedari when he interviews Professors Hamid Dabashi and Kaveh Ehsany, 8 AM Tuesday June 30th.
Hamid Dahbashi is a Columbia University's Middle East Studies Professor, and Kaveh Ehsani is Professor of International Studies at DePaul University, Chicago and an editor of Middle East Report.
A look at progressive capitalists
Hosted by Abe Proctor
A group of progressive Portland capitalists sit down with Abe to discuss ups and downs of simultaneously doing business and doing honor to the values of sustainability and local sourcing. Joining Abe in studio is Leather Storrs, chef and owner of Noble Rot; and Noah Cable, Aaron Harmon, and Danielle Koppel, owners of Sol Pops, makers of outrageously flavored local and organic popsicles.
Hosts Abe Proctor and Joe Uris look at a handful of issues on the national radar, including another case of journalistic malpractice from the New York Times, the twists and turns of the health care battle on Capitol Hill, and the tale of lawmakers on the take in Oregon's liquid natural gas saga.
Please note: Joe Uris will be off teaching this summer, and will return to Talk Radio in the fall.
Joe Uris is alone today, and covers several topics of interest. First up, Joe talked about the proposed (and potentially devastating) natural gas pipeline thru our farms and wilderness. He also covered the recent murder of Dr. Tiller, a Women's Health Professional. He talked about the right wing's smear campaign against Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.
Pay attention to Oregon House Bill 3058!!! This bill will FAST-TRACK the approvals for the LNG pipelines.
During today's show, Joe Uris received a Death Threat... Apparently, someone that is opposed to killing a fetus doesn't mind killing adults...
