With Ralph in DC, David in LA and Steve in New Zealand, Ralph tells us how one airline made the mistake of bumping him from a flight, how Paul Ryan lives in a corporate bubble, how he might tweak our system of government, and how one irate gentleman once delighted in blowing smoke in his face.
Ralph carves up Antonin Scalia and “Corporate Welfare King,” Rush Limbaugh, points out how Exxon actually made money on the Exxon/Valdez oil spill; and we discuss whether Germany actually won World War II, and the one position that Ralph took that he now regrets.
In episode three of the Ralph Nader Radio Hour, Ralph tells Bernie Sanders to go for it, tells us why a corporation does not have religious beliefs, why college athletes should be paid and pays tribute to the late anti-war writer and activist, Jonathan Schell.
This week we ask Ralph if Jamie Dimon is a criminal, whether we really need a CIA, and why should we worry about Fukushima. And Ralph explains the true meaning of one of our most sacred holidays-March Madness.
