Renegade Inc: The lonely century

The pandemic has physically isolated everyone, but another epidemic has been with us for longer than this virus. The loneliness epidemic is a silent killer that breeds in large groups of people. Toxic social media, polarised politics and decades of neoliberal economics have pushed communities to the breaking point. The question now is, how do we avert the lonely century? Economist and author Noreena Hertz joins Ross Ashcroft to discuss.

Going Underground: ‘Industry’ writers Konrad Kay & Mickey Down on financial sector of City of London

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Konrad Kay and Mickey Down, writers of the new TV Series ‘Industry’, which focuses on life in the City of London financial sector through the eyes of vulnerable graduates. They discuss their own experience in the financial sector and what made them leave, what attracts so many graduates to the sector despite holding other dreams for their careers, how the show highlights the vulnerable new recruits’ perspective which is missed in other series and films, how the financial sector takes its toll on the mental and physical health of some graduates, the ‘bonuses’ culture and how it breeds workers who live to chase a paycheck, and much more! Finally, we speak to Dr. Mark Freestone, author of ‘Making a Psychopath’. He discusses what makes somebody a psychopath, why they’re failed by society, the negative and damaging stigmas around psychopaths, the estimated number of them in the general population, why incarceration and punishment may not be the right approach in the dealing with psychopaths, and much more!

On Contact: American discontent

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to Professor Paul Street about the outcome of the US presidential election, and how despite likely losing, Donald Trump has solidified an angry, dispossessed working class that cuts across racial lines and has embraced a right-wing populism. What does this portend for the two ruling parties? Will the Democrats continue to be captive to big donors and Wall Street, or will they embrace the anti-corporate message and promises of Medicare for all, free higher education, higher corporate taxes and regulation of big banks and Silicon Valley that drew such broad and enthusiastic support for Bernie Sanders? And will the Republicans capitalize on this grassroots discontent, much of it rural, where Trump took 60 percent of the vote, or go back to its abject subservience to big business?

On Contact: American discontent

Worlds Apart: Same old, same old? David Brady, professor of political science at Stanford University

While all eyes are still on counting and recounting the votes, the 2020 US presidential election has already tabulated what’s been known all along – that the United States is one of the most politically polarized countries on the planet, with little agreement on its own history or the path forward and, above all, what it means to be an American today. How is this schism going to influence the next four years for America and the world? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by David Brady, professor of political science at Stanford University and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.

Sputnik Orbiting the World: Empire in meltdown and rise of a hero

Is the US in full-blown meltdown? With Biden declaring he won the election and Trump insisting the same, it is still unclear days on as to who will take office in January. Whatever the outcome, it appears to be the US media which will continue to get it wrong. The ‘blue wave’ predicted to sweep away the ‘worst president ever’ failed to materialize, and most flipped states were won by wafer-thin margins. As the counting continued, we invited Stacy Herbert to give her thoughts on this closely fought election. ‘National treasure’ is an accolade arguably bestowed far too liberally today. But there are few national treasures who have earned the honour by climbing back from vilification, imprisonment and standing up for what they believed was the right thing to do. Nelson Mandela is one such person – once declared a terrorist by Margaret Thatcher – and Muhammad Ali is another. As a young man, Ali faced much adversity for his beliefs but never lost faith even when he was stripped o...

Eat the Press: 2020 election coup

Election night came and went without a winner being decided in the presidential race, but that doesn't mean the media wasn't spewing their usual narrative against president Trump. Has deceased Arizona senator John McCain been working to defeat Trump in the state he represented, from the grave? One CNN analyst thinks so, Lionel and Kristin Tate react. Once again they got it totally wrong, is the polling profession dead? Reaction from a top pollster. Why does our news media inject race into everything they can? Wait until you hear who they are blaming for the president winning the Florida vote and see what MSNBC called Justice Clarence Thomas.

Going Underground, Dershowitz: Donald Trump probably won't win election court battles against Biden!

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Alan Dershowitz, Donald Trump’s impeachment lawyer and Professor Emeritus at Harvard Law School. He discusses the outcome of the 2020 US presidential election, amid chaos over the counting of ballots and mail-in ballots, and says Joe Biden has likely won the presidential election, that Donald Trump is likely to lose in litigation battles over the counting of ballots, Trump’s 300+ picks of judges during his term and whether he picked them as a backstop if the 2020 election went to the courts, his own view that Twitter is violating its own terms by censoring President Trump’s tweets, the omission by mainstream media of discussion about allegations against Hunter Biden, why Joe Biden is unlikely to change his predecessor’s policies on Israel, and much more! Finally, we speak to Vijay Prashad, author of ‘Washington Bullets: A History of the CIA, Coups & Assassinations.’ He discusses why US foreign policy is unlikely to change, rega...

Keiser Report: The smug industrial complex loses

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy look at the ‘smug industrial complex’ hating the electorate so much that they once again failed to understand the very population over whom they claim to rule. In the second half, Max chats to Preston Byrne of Anderson Kill Law about the proposed new travel rule and Section 230 in relation to ‘censoring’ of tweets by the president.
