In a wide ranging discussion, we feel sorry for former Fed Chair Ben Bernanke, who apparently can’t refinance his house. We also wonder why progressives are so bad at messaging. And Ralph tells consumers how they can free themselves from their shackles. Plus, your Facebook questions.
This week, Ralph talks to old friend and climate crusader, S. David Freeman, about how we can get off of fossil fuels and make all of our power renewable. We ask Ralph to score Eric Holder’s tenure as attorney general. And Ralph sees new hope for Afghanistan because a genuine progressive has just been elected president.
Are smart meters installed by utility companies an invasion of privacy? Does John Boehner make too much and work too little? Where can you find important stories seldom picked up by the mainstream media? This and more on this week’s Ralph Nader Radio Hour.
This week, we discuss whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is really worth 44 million a year, how political consultants are ruining the Democratic Party, whether driver-less cars are a good thing, and how our quest for empire is compromising the homeland.
This week we talk to a citizen activist from Minnesota about Medicaid fraud and Ralph gets on the case. We also discuss what new technology is doing to our children, the warning Larry Summers gave Elizabeth Warren, and why runway models don’t smile.
We discuss what came first, the corporation or the state; what they do in Brazil we never do here (hint: it has nothing to do with shaving); what you can do to help raise the minimum wage; and Ralph tells us how he once was the guest of honor at a Corvair convention and lived to tell the tale.
