Tell Somebody
A weekly public affairs program on KKFI-FM 90.1, Kansas City community radio.
The Economy - Does More Government Help or Hurt?

On September 16, 2014, the Kansas City Public Library hosted a discussion on the proper role of government in the economy between Stephanie Kelton, chair of the Department of Economics at UMKC, and University of Missouri economics professor Joseph Haslag. The event was moderated by KCPT-TV host Mike Shanin and co-sponsored by the Jobs Now! Coalition and the Show-Me Institute. With Q and A, the discussion went on over one hour and twenty minutes, too long for the show, but on this September 25, 2014 edition of Tell Somebody, you’ll hear the statements of professors Kelton and Haslag.

 

But first, a few words on the September 22 front page article in the New York Times prominently featuring the National Nuclear Security Administration nuclear weapons parts plant in Kansas City, and on how the Sunday network TV talking head political shows pretended that 400,000+ people were not in the streets of New York  city talking about climate change.

Betty is absolutely correct! This is where we exchange information, success, challenges and ideas with our community radio sisters and brothers, as you know, a flock unto our own. Just remember, the stupid question is the one you don't ask.

Coleen Rowley in Kansas City and What’s Different About Independent Media

FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley spoke at the All Souls Forum in Kansas City on September 14, 2014, and about 15 minutes into September 18 edition of Tell Somebody you’ll hear a conversation I had with her just before she had to head back to Minneapolis, followed by an excerpt from her presentation at the forum.

 

But first you’ll get to contrast and compare how independent media and mainstream corporate compromised media cover a topic.  This time it’s the NFL handling of domestic violence, but you could find similar differences on just about any topic you choose.

Jeremy Alderson Protests Fracking, Question for the Energy Secretary, Conde Nast Working for Monsanto?

Jeremy Alderson, director of the Homelessness Marathon, was recently jailed for protesting against fracking in the Finger Lakes. You’ll hear from him in the first segment of the September 4, 2014 edition of Tell Somebody

After that, I had a question or two for the Secretary of Energy and others at the new National Security Campus. Then, a few thoughts on the 75th anniversary of the Molotov Ribbentrop pact, the 25th anniversary of the Baltic Way and current NATO saber rattling, and finally, what looks like a Conde Nast/New Yorker campaign for Monsanto and against Monsanto’s most prominent critic.
