6/5 WI Recall & Heidi Ewing, Detropia & Jamie Kilstein Citizen Radio

June 5, 2012

On day of WI Recall we discuss Detroit, where American Dream and middle class flourished, now is canary in coal mine for all U.S. cities.  Filmmaker Heidi Ewing on her new film Detropia, a haunting look at the iconic American city.  Also, Jamie Kilstein from Citizen Radio petitions to fight Jonah Goldberg — for charity! And in the better half, the Queen’s Jubilee employment practices, public transport cuts, Verizon lays off while CEO pockets a bundle and Alan Simpson spreading social security lies.  Your calls and IMs.
