The day after Barack Obama's historic inauguration as president of the United States we'll look at how much has changed in the United States and what still needs to change in the days, months and years ahead.
Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program looks at how the emerging Obama administration is walking the line between public interest and private profit in two areas: health care and education. It features several great drum solos from the jazz world (mostly curtailed in the webcast for copyright reasons), and Larry Bowlden's review of Unseen Sights, a novel about mental health and its costs.
One drum piece is heard in its entirety (following Larry's book review); it's by Glen Sheidt of Iretsu.
