Hosted by Bill Resnick, this show features Afrobeat music by Fela Kuti and a conversation about Kuti's life and work. The show leads off with a critique of the economic stimulus plan: "insufficient, ineffective, ill-conceived" are the words of economist Michael Perlman. Well-read Red Frann Michel reviews how people of color and immigrants are faring in, and even being blamed for, the economic crisis. We hear from another economist about urban agriculture in Havana and other Cuban cities. To hear the whole show, use the arrow above.
