program date: 
Sun, 06/28/2009

 How have women fared in revolutionary Iran, and what is their role in the current upheavals there?  Is the movement for gay marriage going to make gays and lesbians conform to traditional family values?  What will it take to make our health care system, corrupted by profit, work to keep us healthy?  And can capitalism save our planet?  These are the leading questions discussed on this show, hosted by the Old Mole's Denise Morris, pictured here.
