Political columnist, Bill Curry, returns to give us his analysis of the 2016 presidential election. And the great progressive radio/podcast host, Laura Flanders, stops in to tell us how she tried to register her company in the Grand Cayman Islands to avoid domestic taxes. Also, Ralph grills David about poetry and answers more listener questions.
Bill Curry is a political columnist for Salon. In a previous lifetime, he was White House counselor to President Clinton and a two-time Democratic nominee for governor of Connecticut. He is at work on a book on President Obama and the politics of populism. His latest provocative column is entitled: “Hillary’s Inevitability Lie: Why the Media and Party Elites are Rushing to Nominate the Weakest Candidate.”
Laura Flanders is a best-selling author and broadcaster. After many years in public and commercial radio, she founded The Laura Flanders Show to serve as an online channel for in depth conversations with forward-thinking people from the worlds of politics, economics, business and the arts. This past December, she was part of “The Nation” magazine cruise where she and Ralph stopped off to visit Ugland House in the Grand Cayman Islands, the infamous building where multinational corporations register in order to avoid US taxes.
